Another road that has started some days ago is from the border with montenegro ( Muriqan ) to shkoder !

And from shkoder to tirana the road is very good ... a very comfortable 1x2 ( i was there this summer ) , with a 20 km segment ( from the 70 in total ) currently being expanded to 2x2 with shoulders ( it is in between F .kruje - and tirana ) ,

Great motorways and great asphalt on that road without markings.

And with that, comes a question that has been lingering in my mind for quite some time:
Which is best in terms of the arrows' orientation above the motorway lanes - up or down (as in the picture above)?

I.e., would you prefer something like:

Budapest
| |
V V

or

Budapest
^ ^

This,

Budapest

,seems more logical to me, because it indicates the road. The other one instead, indicates the sky.

Didn't hear anything about it in the news. What is your source?

Take a normal road sign, i.e. not a gantry sign but one next to the road. The arrow pointing downwards is not really an option there. It will have to point "to the sky". Yet nobody cares, or gets lost or confused. The standing arrow just means "straight on".

Personally, I opt for standing arrows. It has nothing to do with pointing to the road or to the sky, but with the type of arrow you would want to have above a lane that can be used for both directions (for instance because there is a tapered exit). Try to find a falling equivalent for this ...

Actually in Albania they use the standing arrows with the blue background. In the italian highways I'm used with the arrows pointing downwards with the green field. Years ago it seemed a little bit strange to me but actually i feel more comfortable with this system.

The main logical difference in my opinion is that with the standing arrows is like having a map with the directions in front of you. On the other hand the arrows pointing downward indicates directly the lanes. And in this sense it seems to me more interactive with the road and the driving.

Of course, liking one system instead of the other is a little bit subjective.

So 18 km of motorway was opened today? I didn't know it was built by Slovenian company SCT. It's even on the first page of RTV Slovenia website.

The most difficult segment, the mountainous one, was given to Bechtel-Elenka (USA-Turkish consortium). The other segments, inclunding this one was given to albanian, slovenian and also macedonian (not the greek region) firms.
