If you've been in Kosova, or have seen the people drive their cars here, you would say YES to 80/90 Km/h aswell. In Norway they have 100 Km/h, normally 90 Km/h, but 100 Km/h is maximum. And it works very good.

Construction of Kosovo motorway to begin in two months

In three years Kosovars will have their motorway, linking their capital Prishtina with the Albanian border and further with the Albanin port of Durres. This has been announced by the Minister of Transport and Telecommunications Fatmir Limaj after the meeting of the inter-ministerial committee for the construction of Pristina-Vėrmice motorway, where it was also decided to announce the final bid for the selection of the company to carry out the biggest road project in Kosovo. The work should start no later than two months after the opening of the bid.

“We are continuing to be on track with the works dynamic. We have decided today to open the bid for beginning of construction. This will finally result in the winner of the Pristina-Vermice motorway construction,” said Limaj in a press conference following the inter-ministerial committee meeting.

The offer, which is valid for seven pre-qualified companies, according to Limaj will be open for 30 days starting from today.

The members of committee during this meeting have approved some of criteria which are going to be the basis for the offer. “Paperwork for the offer has been prepared in line with highest international standards,” said Limaj.

The winning company according to him will be selected based on the procurement criteria starting from the collection points of the most favorable price and the most technically favourable criteria.

The start of the works is another added criteria. According to the offer package, the company should be ready to start the works in the construction of highway 30 days from signing of the contract. “The timeframe for construction work has been foreseen to last no more than 36 months. This is the real term for completing the motorway”, said Limaj.

Eversheds wins role on €1bn Kosovo motorways project
Author: Sofia Lind

30 Sep 2009 | 11:41

Law firms: Eversheds Eversheds has won a E1bn (£912m) infrastructure mandate in Kosovo as the country moves to improve transport connections with its neighbouring nations.

The 120km Morine to Merdare motorway project marks the largest investment by the Kosovo Government in 20 years and will connect the country with neighbouring Serbia, as well as Albania and the Adriatic coast.

Eversheds won the mandate following an international tender in which it competed against firms such as the Italian arm of Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, as well as regional player Boga & Associates.

Tirana-based partner Marco Lacaita is leading the Eversheds team, which also includes Milan partner Alvise Dona dalle Rose and Leeds construction partner Andrew Symms.

The firm will advise the Kosovan Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications in drafting and negotiating all the relevant contracts for the project, which could last one-and-a-half years.

Commenting on the appointment, Lacaita said Eversheds won the deal on the back of its launch in Tirana, Albania in April this year.

The Tirana office had previously won mandates for the Albanian Government but this marks its the first appointment in Kosovo.

Eversheds' Italian arm, Eversheds Piergrossi Bianchini, opened in Albania's capital Tirana in April this year and the office now has 10 lawyers.

The Morine to Merdare motorway project is expected to boost the local Kosovan economy by creating up to 3,000 jobs.

Nice As I read on wikipedia, this investment is close to 20 - 30% of the entire Kosovar economy.

Yep, it'll certainly help the economy and the overall GDP. Another thing that'll soon start is the construction of a large power plant that'll add a whopping 25-30% to the GDP due to foreign investment.

The really cool thing about the Kosovo motorway in construction is that you will be able to pass through the republic from the very north to the very south in Albania in one hour and if the speed limit is set at 130km/h less than one hour! That is really speaking something for Kosovo... Kosovo only needs expressways to other cities as they are pretty close to each other... One motorway for the short term future is more than enough.

I think one hour is a bit too optimistic, but going from Prizren (border with Albania) to Prishtina and then Merdare (border with Serbia) in 1 1/2 hours is always a nice improvement! Already our exports to Albania have grown 300% year-on-year for the month of September since the Albanian motorway opened.

We export minerals, ferronickel, leather, agricultural products, machinery, steel, wine, finished food products, etc. What do you export, except cheap sarcasm?

It takes at a minimum 2 hours to drive from the border point of Morinė to Durrės. It takes at a minimum 4 1/2 hours to drive from Durrės to Saranda. You do the math.

The difference is that the current highway in Albania is still under construction and it is all mainly set on mountains with average speeds of 110km/h due to bends and what have you... Kosovo's terrain on the other hand is much more better than that of Albania and thus meaning less bends and higher speed limits. That is my math calculation. I am guessing Kosovo will be at least 120km/h. On the official Ministry of Transport it states that the motorway speed limit in Kosovo is (will be) 130km/h.

PS: Ban.BL... Please stay on topic my friend. You do not see us Albanians going to Serbian motorway thread asking about Serbian exports. You seem to question everything Albania and Kosovo does.

Of course you are.

Here is an article with some data about the positive effect of the Durres-Kukes Motorway on the economy of both albanian states.

I thought trolling was banned in SSC forum, Why do mods here tolerate this? Ban.BL is trolling and spamming Albania and Kosovo motorway threads.

It's impossible to reach Saranda from Kukės in less than 4-5 hours even if you were driving on a full profile motorway that started from (e.g) Topojan and ended all the way down towards Ksamil.
I'm not even factoring in the traffic and the waiting time at the border.

No, I was talking about going from Merdare in Podujeve to the south in Morine in Prizren within one hour, ofcourse it will take about 5 hours to cross Albania from north to south if it was all motorway, I know that.
