Photos from the Shtime Transit Road (this road serves as sort of a bypass of the little town of Shtime which, unfortunately for drivers, is directly on the Prishtina - Prizren road). This road entirely bypasses the town and is only for those going to Prizren. Photos are from May 3rd, 2009.

Hello everyone!

I saw some really nice pictures on this topic, I definitely have to visit Kosovo!

Can somebody explain to me why is motorway being built to Airport? Or is it just some sort of bypass for other roads and it just so happens it ends near Airport?

And is there official web page of Kosovo's ministry of transport, or whoever is in charge of road development?

I appologize if i missed info on previus pages...

Thanks in forward!

It's part of the Prishtina - Peja road, which is an important national road. Peja is the second largest city in Kosovo and an important route to Montenegro.

Quote:
Is that 20km only project currently under construction or more motorways are soon to be built?
No, currently we have this one under construction and a 4km stretch from Prishtina to Mitrovica. Tenders have been announced for a 20km stretch continuing towards Mitrovica, and a 20km stretch from Klina towards Peja (this is the same road as Prishtina - Peja, Klina being a small town by that road).

There are plans to reconstruct and further expand the Prishtina - Ferizaj - Skopje national road. That road has been reconstructed up to Lipjan, a small town some 14km away from Prishtina (this is route E65).

To summarize:

1. E65 - 14km completed, some 70km to go.
2. E75 - 5km completed, a further 12km under construction, and some 50km remaining.
3. National Route M2 Prishtina - Mitrovica, some 4km under construction, and some 30km remaining.
4. New motorway Prishtina - Prizren - Vermica a completely new route, preparatory work has been completed, tender announced, 33 companies qualified, expropriation of property has started, expected to start construction around August or so. 80km + about 40km from Prishtina to Serbian border (Merdare).

Yeah, the ministry is doing a poor job of informing the public of what's going on. Unfortunately.

Actually Total, the Prishtina - Peja - Montenegrin border is the E80, not the E75. My mistake.

Some photos from the Prishtina - Prizren road. This section is nearby Rahovec Valley, a well-known wine-producing area of Kosovo.

Actually he was overtaking the other guys and he was going pretty fast. Those slopes and hills are great to drive on if you have a good driver in front of you. If you have someone going too slow... then it's boring as hell. And the scenery is very, very nice. After you start going downhill you see vast wine orchards...

Definitely.


And now a series of pictures from the Prishtina - Gjilan road, the section from Badovci lake all the way to Artana, a small ancient town in Kosovo. The road has been reconstructed and is a pleasure to drive on.

It looks like it has been photoshopped to focus attention on that green
