A quick update of what happened in the month of June....

----------------------------------------------

Ministry of Transportation officials signed the contract for the construction of the Shkodėr - Hani i Hotit segment, part of the 405 km North-South Corridor. The 39.5 km segment links the NorthWestern region of Shkodėr with Podgorica. The contract was awarded to italian company ATI Claudio Salini S.p.a. & Salvatore Matarrese S.p.a.

Construction started on the 40 km segment Sarandė - Konispol - Qafė Botė that links the region of Saranda with the border point of Qafė Botė that leads to Greece.

Construction started on the 37 km segment Qukės - Qafė Plloēė aimed to shorten the distance between the regions of Korēė, Bilisht and Kolonjė with Tirana.

---------------------------------------------

Construction started earlier in the year on the 35 km segment Kardhiq - Delvinė which aims to shorten the distance between the region of Gjirokastėr and the Ionian Coast.

Construction started a few days ago on the 22 km segment Qafė Thanė - Pogradec. This road will pass through the scenic Lake Ohri coast and it's nicknamed the "Lake Boulevard".

The first segment of Rruga e Arbėrit, Bulqizė - Shupenzė was completed. This road links Tirana with Macedonia's border via the Dibėr region. You can see a video update of this spectacular region in NorthEastern Albania. The most difficult part of this project is the construction of a 150m high bridge.

I was driving today route Prishtina - Tirana. Sorry for no photos.
Quich description:
Morine - 5 km before Kukes:
Road is under asphalt, widht for 4 lanes, allready opened for traffic, but ALL bridges built for 2 lanes only. No construction works on bridges seen. My opinion: 2 lanes could be finished by september 2009.
5 km before Kukes - 20 km behind Kukes:
Still lot of contructing, at this moment you have to use old road.
My opinion: at least 18 months needed to complete this section
20 km behind Kukes - tunnel:
2 lanes opened, other lane under construction.
My opinion: 4 lanes could be finished by september 2009
Tunnel:
1 "hole" opened - but not finished. No propper lights, no isolation on walls, on 2 km even concrete is missing. You feel like in mine. Opened for one way traffic, waiting in front of tunnel up to 45 minutes.
My opinion: After the second "hole" will be finished, this one will neet at least 9 months until finished
Tunnel - Rreshen:
2 lines open. Other two could be finished by september, except two bridges, where works will contionue at least for next 9 months.
Rreshen - Milot
about 10 km under construction, but will need at least 18 months before finished. Other 17 km 2 lanes are finished
Milot - Fushe Kruje:
Upgrade from 2 to 4 lanes in progress. Could be finished in 12 months.
To conclude:
1. Road in such condition would never be opened in EU. I saw 2 heavy accidents.
2. When finished, this will be one of the most beatufiul roads, built in an extremly nice country.
I needed from Prishtina to Tirana 6 hours, including border (10 minutes), lunch (60 minutes) and waiting in front of tunel (20 minutes).

In Italian style (just like the rest of the signage). Why didn't Albania develop an own style?

Even the Alb language is not respected..."Ė" is missing almost in every signage.

They could at least finetuned the Italian rip-off... Such as placing arrows over the actual lanes, move the road number to between the arrows, and throw the capital letters out.

I guess they have some kind of contract with Italy?
