durres-kukes motorway, together with egnatia from greece, seem to be the most scenic from the balkans.

Mala Kapela is not a motorway tunnel, or is it?! Not sure about the exact lenght of Sv.Rok and even this tunnel's length is dubious.

I think they will both be twinned before this Albanian tunnel will be opened. Very soon.

There's actually a proposal for the future Tiranė - Elbasan motorway which includes a 3 km long tunnel. Not sure if it'll be chosen as the best variant but we'll see.
And the planned Tiranė - Tepelenė segment also included a lengthy tunnel.

The difference between Rreshen-Kalimash(5.6km) and Mala Kapela(5.7km) is little.

Anyways, it will be among the longest in the Balkans.

We don't know for sure the exact length. The gov affiliated site Albinvest mentions it at 5.7 km http://www.albinvest.gov.al/foto/Inf...Br_website.pdf
Some other sources have it at 5.65
Nevertheless, it's a long ass tunnel and this whole motorway stretch is incredibly scenic. It has really exceeded my expectations.

Quote:
Rrėshen - Kalimash (60km): This project will be part of the 170 km highway linking the Adriatic Coast with Kosova's border. The road will have four lanes, a 5.7 km long tunnel, 27 works of art and nearly 4.5 km of this road will be on bridges and structures up to 80 m high.

I've heard 5.6 km in most media. Anyway, 0.1km is nothing sweat over.

What's important is that this section will look awesome. Hopefully, then the government invests the same quality in the other road sections.

Does anyone know how long it took to build Mala Kapela and/or Sveti Rok?

Compare both figures, and you will see the record setting.

Congratulations Albania!

Congratulations Albania!
Tunel Mala Kapla: start on Sept 2002, finish June 2005, but only one part, upgrade started on summer 2007 and tunell will be opened probably in June 2009.

It is same with Sveti Rok.

One more example from Slovakia - Tunel Branisko
4822 meters, started 1st April 1996, finished 29th June 2003 only first part. Upgrade will be finished maybe around 2015.

If I go to Albania, I won't come from Montenegro, but from Kosovo, even though it would be longer.
