It's been repaved, yes. Also, that's not me. Those are some guys from a local automotive association just practicing. The road was closed as far as I can tell.

Kosovo builds highways to international standards


The bid for construction of the Merdarė-Morinė highway is expected to be announced today, which will be a conjunction of the Durres-Kukes Highway, giving Kosovo full access to the sea.

The 6 lane Prishtina City - Prishtina International Airport expressway is expected to be finalized by October and in addition, Prishtina-Peje highway which will be done in Spring of 2010 are of the most expensive projects undertaken by the Telecommunication and Transportation Ministry of the Republic of Kosovo.

The 8.9km expressway to Airport has 4 major bridges, many passenger bridge crossings and will be only 5 minutes away from Prishtina.

The reconstructed 4 lane highway added by two freeways from Prishtina to Lypian is already completed and it's planned to split going further west to Dardane and south to Ferizaj and Kacanik which will connect Kosovo's capital to Shkup/Skopje. Must be noted that Kosovo has projected to build another major toll highway in addition to current Prishtina-Skopje/Shkup highway.

Meanwhile, Prishtina - Mitrovica highway has been already finalized in August of this year.

Earlier this year, the Republic Kosovo of Government has signed an agreement with Albania on using the Port of Shen Gjin. Kosovo and Albania are expected to build a highway connecting Gjakova and Shen Gjin. The project is expected to begin sometimes in mid of 2010.

Prishtina is building the largest beltway/ring road in the Balkans conjuncted with every highway and expressway to every town and city of Kosovo.

As I mention before. The Government is planing every litter small city to be conected with highway or express way with Prishtina.

Under construction are 3- highways/motorways and two new highway will start, one end of this year and second next year. Looks like there are plans for new highway connection with Skopje. Impresive projects....to add to this. Ministry is planing to start with high speed trains in near future. First one conecting Pristina Airport with Prishtina and another project that is under discussion, establishing high speed train with Tirana. Will see how the projects will go

They are to come into force within this year starting from diplomatic vehicles then later on for the rest of the citizens. The answer is no but all plates are planned to be changed.

And within this year new plates of the Republic of Kosovo are going to be implemented.

The old yugoslav plates are going to die, like yugoslavia did. (Of course the unmik plates will dissapear too).

The 16km section will start this November while the rest will follow next year (financial plans are still being worked out for the remaining sections).
That is good news. Looking at the AADT around Prishtina two lane motorway plus hard shoulder is ideal. Many would be content with standard two lane road but if these routes are all going to be built then its good to future proof them. I have seen money pissed away in our country on upgrading simple 2 lane roads again to motorway standard and 2 lane motorways to D3M .

Out of interest is there a ring road planned for Prishtina?

I think there are two existing ring roads in Prishtina, one is the inner ring road and the other is the outer ringroad... Both of these are to be upgraded I believe by the Prishtina municipality. Here is a picture...



It seems the inner ringroad is all connected while the outer one still neds work doing.

Yes, there is. The inner ringroad is being built right now with city finances while the bigger (40km) outer ringroad is to be built by the Ministry of Transportation. According to an interview with the minister and the mayor of Prishtina, work will commence later this year (possibly around November, election month ) and it will take about 2 years. Hopefully they don't postpone it because Prishtina really needs it.

Ah I see now! I guess part of the inner ring road is the big roundabout u/c I have seen from photos previously. I hope the outer ring road will be dual with grade separated junctions. Looking at this previous photo it looks like it is badly needed alright

Yep, the big roundabout will connect to the inner ring-road while the outter ring-road will not touch it as it is much larger. I believe it will be 2x2 motorway as it goes through territory much of which is unused and over which no significant land-ownership issues exist. Part of it is based on an existing 2x1 road, and part of it is new.

You can see some photos of the existing road here.

Update on the widening of M9 Prishtina - Peja from 2x1 to 2x2. These photos are from 12.09.2009.

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
