There are no motorways in Montenegro yet. The costs of building one through a mountainous region would be enormous for a small country like this. However, there is a plan to build a motorway between Belgrade and Bar in montenegro some time in the future.

Does someone have pics of Sozina Tunnel? I passed through it a couple of years ago, when it was just opened and the finishing touches were still being put. It looked pretty good.

Montenegro is preparing very seriously for building motorways, at first place parts of planed Adriatic-Ionian motorway. As small, but relatively high developed touristic country, Montenegro needs better road connections manly to the west market and Montenegrian part of the common east Adriatic (Adriatic - Ionian) motorway will serve very well for that.
All spatial plans needed for the network of motorways (east-west Adriatic - Ionian and north-south from the coast to capital Podgorica and further to the north to Serbia) are accepted last year by the Parlament and Adriatic - Ionian motorway is currently under next steps of planning and project process by a French consultant company.
Building will start when construction of Croatian part of Adriatic - Ionian Motorway come closer to Dubrovnik.

No, we don't. But I guess they could built their motorway only as a part of the whole Adriatic-Ionian Motorway, till Igoumenitsa. It would generate some traffic beween Trieste and Greece, I suppose. But I don't have any idea where the project is in Albania, I know they are building something. In Montenegro I don't see any concrete works yet.

From Risan (town in the Bay of Kotor) to the north

7km of new road on the so called "Second development (north-south) axis" from Dragalj to Grahovo (Vilusi) is started to build in april.

Grahovo is future main entrance to Montenegro by Adriatic - Ionian motorway from the west.

Beautiful road, but to me those driving lanes seem to be a bit narrow. Maybe it't due to the photos, but I think trucks may have problems there.

No, iIt's just optical. That's good standard new reconstructed road.

Here is some view to the road climbing up the mountain in Risan:
from the islet of Our Lady of Skrpiela


..and Risan

They do have highways, but not motorways

A highway can be any kind of public road, but usually not streets.

Actually they count tunnel Sozina as "half" motorway . It's because that 4 190 m long tunnel is pay tool.
Also tunnel is the most important part of the future motorway Podgorica - Adriatic coast.

From Podgorica, road (and railway) is going first mainly on dikes over Lake of Skadar...


..and then through Sozina tunnel in few minutes you are...

Is 1 km of motorway in Montenegro really going to cost ~1 ml. EURO? That would be unbelievably cheap!

One of few things I remember from Montenegro when I was there in 1986, were bad roads. Oh, and falling on a cactus.
