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?
Kalimash Tunnel was opened a week ago. The rest was just election propaganda. So technically yes this was the biggest tunnel for a week.

That's all the info we got:

Quote:
Rrėshen - Kalimash (60km): This project will be part of the 170 km highway linking the Adriatic Coast with Kosovo's border. The road will have four lanes, a 5.65 km long tunnel, 27 works of art and nearly 4.5 km of this road will be on bridges and structures up to 88 m high.

I suppose they mean 27 complicated bridges which are going to be state-of-the-art.

No, there is a similar wording in French about bridges and things like that. They say "ouvrage d'art", which basically means structure.

This highway will increase Alpine tourism... in these areas

I mean here is a brochure from Ministry of Tourism. You can sleep in these characteristic houses(in Albanian called Hane) for low prices.

Basically, these areas are good for kayaking, mountain climbing horse riding,,,etc

The same term is used in Romanian: "lucrare de arta" (work of art) in reference to structures.

A new variant of the future Tiranė - Elbasan motorway was presented today by the Ministry of Transportation officials => The Tiranė - Kėrrabė - Elbasan segment. This route has a length of 31.5 km, including a 2.5 km tunnel.
Total cost of the project is estimated at roughly €170 million.

The road that leads to Lalėzi Bay looks very nice. That's a very important segment because it leads to one of the better beaches of our Central Coast where several high-end resorts are planned to be built or are already under construction.

Speaking of Lalėzi Bay, construction of another route that links the beach with the national road network is expected to start later this year. It's a 13 km long segment that begins from the village of Bubq and runs up all the way down, towards the picturesque olive hills of the bay.
