The ministry of transportation says that it'll be an "autostrade urbane" which means "urban motorway" but it isn't quite clear yet. The roads are wide enough for a motorway, though.

No It will have probably been imported from Switzerland because it is cheaper to buy an imported car in Kosovo than actually buy one new from the shop.

Not anymore. The government has made it mandatory for imported cars to pass a test that is supposed to see if they meet Kosovo's road conditions. That adds at least 10% to the cost of the car and makes it on par with cars bought elsewhere and then translated to Kosovar plates.

On some videos posted on the page before I though I spotted some yellow signage, though I thought all signage in Kosovo (except perhaps the north) was blue. Is this right or did I see something eise?

No, yellow signage is all usedon temporary road conditions and where there are work being done on roads. Kosovo has all blue signage and has some of its own drawn signage... completely different to Serbia. This also includes the north of Kosovo.

Yellow signage is only used for construction purposes and only certain categories of signs. Most of the signs are blue, with white signs denoting villages and alternative routes to the airport (which pass through certain villages).

Construction pics of M9 Prishtine - Peje (the section from Fushe Kosove to Sllatine, by the airport) posted by Nderim in the Albanian forum. The construction of this road has been an absolute hell as the companies have taken their sweet time.

No, I think those pillars are supposed to support the bridge that's U/C.

Update on the widening of M9 Prishtina - Peja from 2x1 to 2x2:

The road from Prishtina up to the green balloon in the middle of the map is currently U/C.



The photos to be posted in this and two subsequent posts are from the section in green in the map below. The section in red is a different lot and is close to completion (17km, of which 11km are completed, and 8km are U/C)




Part I

Nice. Is that a Kosovo license plate in the last two pics? Because I saw some similar plates in Croatia this week. Although they also could've been Bosnian, they have a similar combination as on the pics.

^ The cost of this section is ~55 million euros. The table says 11 million, but that's for only a section of it as the construction is separated into smaller lots with various companies building the road and its bridges.

Yellow marking are being used to differentiate between the part of the road that's U/C and the rest of the road that isn't. This is a section that has been repaved two years ago and is in pretty good condition. Security rails and signalization was being erected as I was passing by. This completes today's update.

Kosovar plates look like Bosnian plates, except the font. Only that plates from KS have "KS" in the middel, where Bosnians have a letter which means the same in both Latin and Cyrillic. From the new countries of the former Yugoslavia, nowadays only in Kosovo and Bosnia you can not see on a plate from which city a car comes.

The internal ministry of the Republic of Kosovo will be ready in september to give out the new licence plates, first for the cars of officials and than for random ones. The new plates are going to have the arm of coats of the republic of Kosovo and a citycode.

Yes Indeedy, and the former Yugoslav registration plates will be invalid.

The new license plate will look like this:



Which ofcourse is far better than the old one, whatever nationality you are.
