How long does it currently take without a motorway (Saranda-Kükes)? I guess it's significantly longer because of the mountainous terrain.

-edit- I see that this is the Kosovar thread. Sometimes it's hard to spot the difference. Still I hope that someone can answer my question

An interesting video from the widening of M9. You can see some of the bridges in here too. The reason why they didn't close the route down during construction is that it's a very important transportation route and the alternatives just don't cut it. So don't be surprised to see cars even though the road is still U/C.




thanks to Skanderbeg for finding it.

Who says things will be postponed? The motorway will be a public-private project, with tolls. The company with the means to finance the motorway will most likely win the contract and that's how it'll get financed (with the government dealing with the rest of the issues, such as expropriation of property, etc.) The World Bank was never seriously interested in investing in it and it was never seen as a source of money for the motorway.

The Prishtina - Mitrovica road U/C. It was thought that the road would become 2x2, but it looks wide enough for 2x3 at least.

October update on the M2/E65 Prishtine - Peje project (widening and reconstruction). Construction is almost coming to an end in the section highlighted in RED on the map below. The entire stretch is 17km, 5 of which have already been completed and opened. The photos are from the remaining 12.





This is where the 12km stretch starts/continues









The first of the four long (100+ meters, with the longest being 200+ meters built) bridges:











They are working on installing the divider railing





This is the fourth and final bridge in this stretch, 200+ meter long. Two lanes are opened for traffic, with the crews working on the other two as you can see on the right.












And coming down...

A road trip from Brezovica, a ski resort in southern Kosovo, to the touristic villages in the vicinity of Prizren.


The start of this regional road from Brezovica and upwards toward Prevalle, a village in the Sharr mountain range of Kosovo.













Some of the views one sees during the trip or if one stops in one of the local restaurants.






The road as seen from a nearby restaurant





Taking a break









Enjoy.

Sure is, Prizren beats it though. In Brezovica the Serbs are also much more integrating with their Albanian neighbours compared to the Serbs of Mitrovica in the northern part of the city.
