The beaches aren't really roads, there are other sections on SSC where those pics can be posted

Exactly, such as General Photography or Travel and Geography, not to mention local forums.

Hi. Congratulations for all that is bing built in Albania! I am from Croatia and have a couple of questions.

1. When will the whole motorway (with four lanes) from Durres to Kosova border be completed (not just the Bechtel part, but also the part from Durres to Milot)?

2. Are there any plans to build a motorway (again four lanes) from Tirane to Korce and Greek border, thereby connecting Tirane with the new Greek motorway near Kastoria?

3. Can you please tell me, geerally, which motorways (four lanes) have been built, are currently being constructed or are planned in the near future (with deadlines, if possible).

I am very happy for the building projects in Albania and hope that some day a four lane motorway Trieste-Split-Dubrovnik-Podgorica-Shkoder-Tirane-Elbasan-Korce-Kastoria-Thessaloniki-Istanbul will become a major link between the western Europe and Turkey, instead of the current motorway via Belgrade.

#3. Can you please tell me, geerally, which motorways (four lanes) have been built, are currently being constructed or are planned in the near future (with deadlines, if possible).

I can answer this. Rreshen-Kalimash(part of Durres-Kukes) is the only motorway Albania has at the moment. It will be finished by the end of 2009. Tirane-Durres-Lushnje-Fier is a (four lanes) expressway. Fier-Vlore is currently being constructed as we speak. Planned in the coming years is Arberi Road which will link Albania with Macedonia.

This picture basically explains the road network Albania plans to build. Some are already finished. Some are under construction and will be finished within the next 3 years.

You may find this funny. But our politicians in Albania are involved in the music industry. Especially during this election campaign.

Edi Rama(SP) made a hip-hop song. This is the counter response by Sali Berisha (DP).


It has some aerial videos of motorway Durres-Kukes.

Nope.
The motorway won't be fully completed till next year. They'll finish one of the tunels later this year but it'll take about a whole year for the whole motorway to be completed. Most of it will be operational though later in the year.

Nope. No direct motorway between those two cities is planned.
Just recently Korēė - Qafė Plloēė segment was completed and with the completion of Qafė Plloēė - Qafė Thanė, Korēa would have a direct link with the lake town of Pogradec and Macedonia's border. A big plus for tourists that want to visit Albania's Southern Coast entering from Macedonia.

There are plans for a future Central - South axis (Tiranė - Tepelenė) segment which is an alternative to the North - South Corridor.
This future motorway would link Tirana with the greek border via the districts of Berat, Kuēovė and Tepelenė which then links to the existing Tepelenė - Gjirokastėr segment that was just completed.
Another segment under construction is Sarandė - Qafė Botė (40.5 km) that links the town of Konispol with the border point of Qafė - Botė. There are two other existing border points with Greece, Kapshticė and Kakavijė.
Also, a 4th route that runs through the greek border is already u/c, the Leskovik - Tre urat (3 bridges) segment links the district of Pėrmet with that of Konica.
