I think for the roads, they mean that Durres-Kukes is being finance by a Greek bank. It doesn't matter where the loan comes from since it is a loan that needs to be payed back. What matters is the interest charge in it.

Anyways, cooperation is good as long as there is profit in it.

Albania has constructed over 6,000 km of roads these past 4 years. Out of all the projects, I can think of only one greek company that's currently constructing a segment in the south near the border. That's about it.
So the article in that website is grossly misinforming and nonfactual.

Actually the article on "To Vima" states that Greek construction companies have a market share of 30-40% in general, not specifically in road construction. Even some of the companies mentioned, do not specialise in road construction.

I hope this clarifies things a bit.

Article from today's Shqip Newspaper translated by google (with modifications)

Quote:
Road concessions, the government at the crossroads

The government plans to change the scheme of financing for road construction. Format of date from the state budget or loans from banks do not appear easy to implement, given the pressure of economic crisis. Currently noted are the decline in revenues and the tightening of credit conditions. Finding itself in this situation, the government is looking seriously towards the road-building scheme of concession. Said seriously, because for several consecutive years the government have adopted some road concession projects, none of which have been implemented. In four years of government, Prime Minister Berisha and his cabinet have spoken a lot about road construction, building corridors, passages from one end to another, but all financial arsenal went only to a pivot, leaving others pending. The paper has learned that at the Prime Minister's table have arrived several proposals and projects by foreign companies, which have shown a great deal of interest in getting concession contracts for the country's main roads. In the foreground is the famous Tirana-Elbasan segment, for which the Ministry of Public Works says that they have completed all modalities, including project and financing. Another important axis that is pending for five years now is Thumanė-Vorė-Rrogozhinė. Construction of this route connecting the diagonal form part of the country's north and south eases traffic, which is aggravated precisely at the intersection of Plepat Beach in Durrės. Officials from the Ministry of Public Works have clarified that both of these projects have completed all procedures. "Many companies have expressed interest. Other investors are qualified in the preliminary stages. Studies are ready for all projects and procedures," said a ministry official.

Turkish company "TAT Group", at an August meeting with Albanian Prime Minister, expressed interest to build the road Tiranė-Elbasan.

Costs
A study done by a private company comes to the conclusion that the road Tiranė-Elbasan requires at least 160 million euros investment, estimating the tunnels inside, and cutting of 25 km of road. In regards to Arbėri Road, Tiranė-Bulqizė (70 km), the cost is over 90 million euros. This road cuts nearly in half the time to reach from Tirana towards Macedonia's border, while connecting remote areas with the center, helping in economic development these parts of the country. Third Axis, which MPWTT has made almost all letters, Thumanė-Rrogozhinė, is thought to be over 60 kilometers. Foreign investors have offered 70 million euros to make the completion of the road.

Video is very beautiful and so is the background song but my only question is what the hell is that guy doing parked like that on the hard shoulder at 2:28 - 2:30 on the right hand side? Another question is... What is the speed limit where the highway is in full operation with with-flow system?

Lol, Greek construction companies 40%, now that's a bit exaggerated. Anyways whatever the number it's good for the cooperation between the two countries.
A lot of developments in Albania lately, from what I see in this thread. Would certainly give a good boost to the economy.
What is the major motorway road in Albania? I believe the one connecting the South with the North? Google maps is never updated.

The major motorway road that has almost been constructed and our goverment gave more than 1 billion $ , is the Durres- Kukes motorway , which makes more comfortable the transportation between the Albanians of Albania and the Albanians of kosova ! I was there 1 month ago and i truly bet that it is one of the best motorways on the world , in fact i ll upload some photos in max 1 hour from now !

But soon there will start a new big project ! A motorway that will link the south of albania with tirana !

So expect some photos from me in preety soon today

No you are not tired. I don't think the right lanes(side) of the motorway is open for traffic yet.
