Just seen it on the Austrian teletext. Is that on the Kosovo border? How many tunnels were opened, how long are they, do they have two tubes, how long is the whole opened section, and was anything opened in Kosovo? Quite some questions, eh?

The tunnel is nowhere near the Kosovo border. It's the last segment of Rrėshen - Kalimash that Bechtel/Enka are building, the Thirrė - Kalimash segment which is quite a distance from the border point of Morinė.

I dunno, there are loads of links about it:

http://www.zeriyt.com/albania-today/...-t56318.0.html
http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/s...th-kosovo.html

http://www.pr-inside.com/albania-kos...e-r1287815.htm
http://www.topix.com/forum/world/ser...E48HHLHQF3FO2N
etc. etc. .............

Is there a tunnel on the border?

Oh, and did they open that 5.6-km tunnel, which would be the longest motorway (double-tube) tunnel in the Balkans, if Croatia didn't open Mala Kapela and Sveti Rok tunnels just one day earlier?

There's only 1 (double tube) tunnel, Verso. What other tunnels are you referring to? There's no tunnel on the border. Those articles are referring to the tunnel in general terms. To get to the other side you have to go through the tunnel.

One of the tunnels was opened earlier this week but they had to "reopen" it again today for election propaganda purposes so they invited Kosovo PM Thaēi to take part on the inauguration ceremony. By "open" I mean they cleared all the remaining earth so now one of the tunnels is cleared on both sides.

Next step is to lay the asphalt and install the signals and lighting system which could take a few extra months.

Both sides of the tunnel are inside our territory, shqiptario. The border point of Morinė is a 30 km distance from Kalimash.
