Even spaghetti junctions, with a proper signage, are very simple to drive through.

The winner of the tender was announced, the plates will apparently be ready by late September.

True. So you can build free flow turns in every directions.

You don't need a roundabout at all. That's why I said "redundant": either you build a roundabout withouth free-flow turns, or build free flow turns without a roundabout. To me, it's just waste of money.

Redudnacy appears if you drive from "B" to "C" and from "C" to "D".
It is not waste of money because the roads that conect "B" with "C" and "C" with "D" are existing (see photos below). Brand new roundabout needed to be built in order to conect other spots ("A", "B", "C", "D" and "F") between each-other. The oteher option was to build a apaghetti junction, but that would be a waste of money!





Existing roads seen in Google Maps.

Ah well, I didn't know that those roads are pre-existing.
But I still think that spaghetti junctions are better. If the roads have a lot of traffic, driving in the roundabout would be nightmare, and many (low-speed) accidents will occur. The innermost of the three lanes in the roundabout will be always empty (why bother to go there? In few seconds I'll have to turn right anyway, I risk to stay there longer if there is much traffic - like in that movie with the Griswald family in France). I think that a slow and complicated roundabout connecting high speed roads is not a good solution.

The pictures are great, I have never been in Prizren, but I would like to visit it.
Best regards for the improvement of roads, especially for route Mitrovica - Pristina - Ferizaj, because I'm using this route while driving to Macedonia.

All the best for Kosovo

Well, one day you will practically have all highway connection from Serbia through Mitrovica to Prishtina and motorway link all the way to the Macedonian border. Thats what the aim of the Ministry for Transport and Communication seems to be. The link between Serbia and Albania is already on its way. Highway connection with Mentenegro is also on its half-point towards Pejė (Pec).

The overall plan is something like this:

Albania dont need to be linked with serbia.We have no interest,our relationship with them is 0.Those declarations about expanding Albania's A1 till in Nis are just political and always will stay like that.

However, you want a relationship with Kosovo, surely?

If both Belgrade and Tirana want a link to Prishtina (and vice versa: Prishtina to Belgrade and Tirana), then when these are built, Tirana and Belgrade will be linked as a consequence of that.

oh no! What a coincidence!

Ofcourse Serbia has interest to connect to Albania... Afterall access to Albanian sea is much needed for further development of the Presheva Valley and southern parts of Serbia.

Tirana is linked with Prishtina very well with Durres-Morine motorway.150.000 serbs that visit Albania every year pass into Albania through Montenegro and Macedonia not from Kosovo.In this way,Kosovo is not forced/not important to expand the motorway till at serbian border.More important for Albania is Durres-Ulqin motorway and Tirana-Shkup/Skopje motorway,and nothing with serbia.And for Kosovo to build the other part of "Albanian motorway" and an motorway to be linked with Shkup than with serbia.Or only if Kosova have enough money to spend for nothing then they can build the motorway till Mitrovice.

Only bullets have always linked and always will link Albanians and serbs.Kosovo have its own sea port in Albania,an new motorway that link Prishtina with Tirana and thats all what Kosova need.Albania links Kosovo with europe, not serbia.

Albanian ports are only for Albania and Kosovo needs..How east Kosova aka Presheva valley is linked with Republic of Kosova it self?

This doesn't make sense. Albania and Kosovo are almost united.

Well, as line on the map yes. However, much to the dismay of South Serbia businessmen who come often to Albania, for as long as Serbia does not recognize Kosovo making border crossings a huge problem for everyone, the link will remain that line. Transport and trade will remain minimal as if there were no road. The one linking Durres to Kosovo is working great though .

Presheva Valley is on the edge of the Nish Shkup Motorway, When Prishtine - Shkup Motorway is built then Albanians in southern Serbia will also have access to the Albanian sea.

All the best for Kosovo

Here are two short videos from a section of Mitrovica - Prishtina, shot yesterday. This one is just over 5km, while an additional 10km are being worked on (the entire route is 32km, connecting the two cities).

Nice videos. Just wondering: Since it is hardly possible to cross the Ibar bridge in Mitrovica easily, how is it to drive around (east) of the city?
