Those highways are really something else! Good job Albania! The only thing I don't like is the letter type they use in the signs...Is it too big or am I wrong? Even a blind man could see those signs! I mean, I find it a bit unecessary and not that aesthetically correct...But who cares?

I don't like the font either, but I believe it's Italian-style.

I tried to follow the Durrės - Kukės - Kosovar border motorway on Google Earth. The routing was not visible everywhere, especially around Kukės and towards the Kosovar border, and not from the plains south to Durrės.

This is my guess of the routing:

I think the route follows the motorway Durres-Tirana first(till Vore), then the national road to Milot, and only from here the real motorway begins.It follows the valley of Fani i Vogel river till Thirre, then crosses the mountains through that long tunnel(5.6km).After the tunnel it follows the route of the current E851 Skoder-Kukes-Morine few kilometres souther of it, till the border with Kosovo.

It's called Durres-Kukes motorway. But the motorway that Bechtel-Enka is building is only 38-mile (61-kilometer). This will stretch from the town of Rrėshen(Mirdite unit), in the heart of the country, up to the northeastern village of Kalimash.

So they are building in the roughest terrain of the country. The rest of the motorway is supposedly to be build seperately by the government.

So a better route map would be:

Well my guess is that:

Vlore is a city and administrative centre.

Himare, Dhermi, Orikum are villages.

Himare, Dhermi, Orikum are beaches, and Vlore is a port, I think.
