Yea we've made fun of that reporter over at Albania forum. The way he talks like a robot. Also he has a silly tie.
The road Vlora-Sarande is going to be narrow since it is a mountainous road by the coast.

Its part of this road in Vlora so its probably going to be the same. I visited it in 2006 and finally they are fixing it up. Scenary is beautiful only human potential was missing.

There's no such road or a future project in place for it.
The government's priority in relation to the roads connecting through Macedonia remains "Rruga e Arbėrit" (Arbėr Road) which is already u/c. It connects Tirana with Macedonia's district of Debar (Dibėr). Once Durrės - Morinė is complete, the next major project which is already on the works is the "Tiranė - Berat - Tepelenė" motorway also known as the Southern Axis.

What road are you talking about?
You have to drive through several districts to get to Saranda. There's no easy way of getting there, that's for sure.
Korēė - Qafė Plloēė segment that's u/c does not reach that far down. So getting to Saranda from Macedonia's border will continue to be a hassle. The other problem is that we have very distant economic ties with Macedonia even though we're neighbours. There's no urgent need to have to borrow loans in order to improve the eastern road network at this point.
The idea of the Korēė - Qafė Plloēė segment is to develop a better and easier access of the south-eastern region with the border point of Kapshticė on the greek border, a high traffic area for the transportation of goods.

so there is no easy way to come from Macedonia to Albania, Saranda?
I am asking this coz i wanted to visit Saranda and i don“t know what is the best way to drive on?
What route should i take and when there will be decent road to Saranda from Macedonia, it doesn“t have to be motorway, just normal highway?

Here is a map. It seems like there are two ways. You could go to Tirana and then head south or through Korca. There is really no easy way to get there for the moment.
I also don't know of any plans to link to directly link Vlora or Saranda with Macedonia.

I did encounter some Macedonian tourists in Dhermi in 2006. They were speaking Slavic so i assumed they were Macedonian.

A year from now you will be able to go from Durres-Sarande with no problems. Certain parts are still under construction.

Nope, at least for now.
Why do you wanna visit Saranda from Macedonia though?
Wouldn't it be better if you came through Tirana? That way you get to explore more of the country. Besides, Saranda is rather boring compared to Durrės. The only fun you'll have there is if you go on the weekends.

Trough Tirana from where?
Dures is not that interesting to me. It is too crowded and apparently beaches are nicer in Saranda region. And fun in sense of going out is not on my to do list, i am more into exploring country and sightseeing.

Ok then, Vlora-Saranda coast is worth a visit. You'll have lots of privacy there and enjoy great quality beaches.
I would also recommend you check out the mountain regions of Thethi and Valbona, both national parks and big tourist attractions. You haven't seen Albania unless you travel through her mountains.
