autostrada = motorway
superstrada = expressway


Sometimes more or less the same.

highway = any public road

Exactly, Wikipedia is a good source, but you should always double-check the info you get there. I try to do that, and it helps a lot.

That is very nice question to all motorways (not only in Albania, also in Greece...)
Some new motorways in Greece has a small "emergency" lane or none
