Lushnje-fier is finishing in 4 months from now . A 2 x 2
Fier - vlore ( the construction has begun ) but i do not know the deadline .
Pogradec - librazhd ( i think that this road has finished .

Roads by Ohrid lake, especially Struga - Perrenjasi- Librazhd is in very good shape. From Perrenjasi to maceodinian border there is also climbing lane, so the road is comfortable.

But roads by adriatic sea (Lushinje -vlore and vlore - himare - sarrande) are quite dangerous. Sometimes is situation like you must drive reverse a few hundred meters, because you just met a bus and there isnt place for two of you between cliff to sea and a rock above you.

Both roads you mention are under contruction .

Lushnje-fier is finishing in 2-3 months from now , and fier-vlore the construction has begun .

And vlore-himare - sarande the construction begun a last year , and in 6 months from now , it will be perfect .

As you can understand , you are right that these roads were not good , but things have changed . I am from that region near Sarande, so i know , major changes in the road infrastucture there .

The thing i did not know was Librazhd and the road near the macedonian border .

I am glad though that near that those regions have a nice road system too. Good to hear .

My point is that if you take the same route agin in the summer of 2009 then all the roads you ll pass will be ina very good condition .

Thanx for the info dude .

I“m glad to hear it. Albania has great touristic potencial, so improvement of adriatic magistral will be very helpfull. You should also improve infrastructure of electricity. Blackouts are not good visiting card

I guess the colors are not that different now since that part of Albania does not get that much rain (I suppose so) even during the winter but the picture is taken in late afternoon or something!!!

Ok some late news

Quote:
Albania-Kosovo Road Costs 'Over €1 Billion'

The 61 kilometre-long Rreshen-Kalimash section of the Albanian- Kosovo highway is costing Albania €1.027 billion, according to the charges filed against Foreign Minister Lulzim Basha.

However, because the highway is not yet finished, its final cost could rise further. The Rreshen-Kalimash section is only a part of the 170 kilometre highway. Albania’s government has declined to give a clear estimate of the final costs of the road.

Basha, who has been charged with the abuse of power and breaking tender rules relating to the construction project and risks up to 12 years in prison, has denied any wrongdoing and has claimed that the accusations against him are politically motivated and unpatriotic.

The abuse in the case is thought to have cost Albanian taxpayers something in the range of €230 million.

The evaluation was made using the average price of construction material and labour costs in comparison to what Albania is paying to build the road.

The highway, which links the port of Durres with Kosovo and includes a six kilometre-long tunnel, is the country’s biggest public works project in decades.

Almost 89 per cent of Albania’s capital expenditures during the 2008 fiscal year have been spent for the on the highway, data published by Ministry of Finance suggests.

For the nine months ending on September 30, Albania had spent €328 million from its €373 million capital expenditures budget on the road.

About half of this sum was raised in the international market as syndicated commercial loans. Albania will need to invest another €250 million to complete the project, due to be finalised in the summer of 2009.

Prosecutor General Ina Rama has been probing alleged irregularities in the tender for the construction of the highway won by the American-Turkish consortium, Bechtel-Enka for more than 17 months.

The charges relate to the time when Basha was Transport Minister. Basha’s immunity was lifted by parliament at the end of December last year. Apart from the Basha, the former head legal adviser of the minster, Andi Toma has been charged with abuse of power also. Toma has denied the charges against him.
