Roads in Albania are not bad.
Some...


Road from Gjirokastër to the Greek border.

There are many pics in the Albanian thread that show that there are a lot of good Albanian roads, no need to post them in this thread (unless they are about borders of course)

I see many crossings here, but none of the roads seem to connect to the Albanian road network

It didn´t exist in Yugoslavia at least i don´t think so.

border crossing is north of place where border leaves Bojana river (because first bridge over Bojana is in Shkoder, and it's is famous wooden one). nearest place to border crossing in MNE is Vladimir. turn on the sattelite view

The name of that border crossing is Sukobin/Murićani not Vladimir
And there is bridge on Bojana near Ada beside the wooden one near Skadar.

That's because GoogleMaps are plain wrong...for now. Fortunately, there are people to treat this, so in the future, GoogleMaps will read something like this...



...when Google Map Maker data is transfered to GoogleMaps. Thus, the only MNE/ALB border crossing south of Skadar Lake is this seen here - the Sukobin / Murićani one.

Slovenia - Italy

I have noticed that Slovenia and Italy have many border crossing, some of them are very small and insignificant. There are many small local roads connecting those two states. I only wonder whether these crossing were open in Yugoslavia time.

Some of them...

This is the border crossing near Lazaret, right? I crossed here last summer, only during some rainy weather, so I don't really remember the border well.

Why is on every single sign Slovenia written yellow and not white like all other EU countries?
I can't remember are there still nationa signs as well, the white one with Slovenia coat of arms.

There is freight traffic...99% of freight being cement from Albanian factory in Fushë-Krujë. However, there is no passenger traffic.

Great ITA/SLO crossings!
