I don't think it's a big problem to cross the bridge... while the situation is not perfect, it's a far cry from the old and tense situation. Many people commute from/to Serbia by crossing the bridge.. since you'll probably have foreign plates, you'll have a pretty worry-free ride in my opinion.

I don't know about the drive around, perhaps someone else can answer that.

I would not be so optimistic, while the situation on the south is very stable, The north is much more tense which is caused by many Serbian radicals wanting to bring down the Kosovo government and institutions and replace them with that of Serbia. I would not recommend going through the Mitrovica border crossing.

Nice videos, thanks.
Kosovo needs connections with all neighbours, including Serbia. Kosovian citizens from western european countries are still using serbian roads on the way to their homes on Kosovo.

Bypassing Mitrovica you are not getting any problems. Just do not enter the city from Zvečan...

Photos from the construction site of Kosovo's first fully-fledged motorway Vermice (Prizren) - Prishtina. Photos are dated 25-30 August.

Does somebody knows how exactly the motorway from Prizren will connect Pristina in a first instance (2-5 years)? I guess the motorway will be the first to join Pristina, before the construction of the ringroads. Do we have confirmation that they will build the whole section going left to Pristina ? Are there connections foreseen with the motorway to Skopje ? What is a reasonable date for this section to opened ? Many questions :-)

Thanks,

XP

The motorway from Prizren will connect to Prishtine (and from there to Mitrovica, Ferizaj and, ultimately, Skopje). The highway to Skopje is currently mostly 2x1, with a 12km section that's 2x2. The motorway from Prizren will connect to the planned motorway to Skopje in the town of Lipjan.

The Ministry of Transportation has finished the plans for the new motorway to Skopje. Now we're waiting for them to announce the expression of interest invitation, and then the tendering process. According to some estimates, it'll take ~300 million euros.

Thanks Buddy,
Connection in Lipjan will be at the existing E2/E65 crossing (Benetton Outlet) ? Can I find a project map of this area with how the motorway will be connected exactly ? I would like to understand if the traffic generated by the new link with Tirana will use the existing road from Lipjan to Pristina (these 12 km of 2x2) for a while or not...
Cheers,XP

Tirana Motorway connection in L

Here is a zoning plan ordered by Municipality 2-3 years ago. I do not see any connection of the new motorway in Lypjan with the existing 2x2 road. Is this map wrong ? [IMG]http://i55.************/x2rx2r.png[/IMG]

This is a very early plan of all the motorways which are currently are being built or will start construction soon... I think there is some deviation of the Morine Merdare motorway but I am in doubt it will affect Lipjan.

The numbers on the road sections in red indicate, I guess, the AADT (Average Annual Daily Traffic). Are these figures traffic future expectations or based on real measurements ? If yes, do you have the date of these measurements ?
It is very interesting to see how these new roads will affect the overall behaviour and economy in Kosovo. In Western Europe, we do not see immediate effect of such investments. Here, yes !

Those numbers are from 2006, I had posted the feasibility study that includes various maps and numbers derived from actual measurements of traffic. It's in this topic, search under "feasibility study" or some such.

Hello,

I'll be in Kosovo in late December and wanted to get a sense of what the road conditions are typically like (specifically, the probability of heavy snow.)

I'm hoping to drive from Pristina to Peje, onwards to Prizren, ending up in Skopje.

Is this an unreasonable journey to plan in the dead of winter? On the way from Prizren to Skopje, route 17 east to E65 south looks like the most direct route, but it also seems very mountainous. Would I be better advised to take E851 to E65 instead?

Thanks!

Hi there, sorry for the late reply.

The most logical route for you would be to go to Peja first, then to Prizren and then to Skopje. The road from Prishtina to Peja is currently under construction (expansion from 2x1 to 2x2) for about ~40 of its 80+km. The first section - 8km - is finished and smooth in asphalt. The rest of the U/C road ranges from good (ready to be paved) to rough (still smoothing it over, etc.). The rest of the 40+km are generally fine. From Peja to Prizren you should not have any troubles if you're driving with winter tires, the snow is plowed away and it's clear. The mountainous (and beautiful!) part, as you noted, starts from Prizren to Skopje, but it is certainly doable in December. Kosovo gets a lot of snow during the winter, but it quickly melts in December. The real heavy snow comes fairly late, in January or so.

Have a safe and fun trip!

Nice progress with highways.
Anyway after the construction of Skopje's northern bypass which is 25 km in length and connects the east entrance with highway E-75 (Belgrade-Athens) and west city entrance with E-65 highway (Tetovo-Gostivar...Ohrid), I think autorities should start a plan with connection to Kosovo and Republic of Macedonia and Skopje's north entrance towards border to Kosovo. Whats the plans from your side?

I know that the Ministry has announced that somewhere in October or September will announce the intrested companies for building the highway. Becouse of current political situation (split of coalition between leading parties and moving to early elections) the status is unknown.
As I know the new highway will not go though current road, I think they will move more into east to escape the Sharr montains. I didn't see the project, so somebody else might give you more info.

There will be a full motorway from Prishtine to Macedonian border, this will be paid by building company then the company will get their work paid by tolls.

The re-construction (from 2x1 to 2x2 with hard shoulders) is progressing on the M9 Prishtina - Peja national road. Asphalt has been laid, or is about to be laid in most sections. Overpasses are nearing completion, and most bridges are also on their way to being completed.

Pjese solide jane asfalltuar, tjerat po behen gati per asfalltim. Urat/nenkalimet po ndertohen me te madhe, dhe puna eshte shpejtuar para zgjedhjeve.
