@Buddy Holly
Thanks!! I'll be in the region in August and I would like to drive through Rugova and over Cakor. 10 weeks left, things could happen very fast in Balkans

However, it will not be the last trip to Greece, so if not this year, so perhaps next year

@pause
I doubt that this picture shows Čakor. To be honest, driving over Čakor was so long ago (20 years) that I can't really remember the landscape, but the road looks far to wide and good to be the one over Čakor

I hae spoken to my father about this matter and he said that back in the days of Yugoslavia he only used this road to get to Montenegro. Today on the Kosovo side it goes through serb villages and for this reason the government in Kosovo will probably not invest as there would be tension with Albanians and Serbs using the road. He also mentiones that the road goes through Serbian territory which would also be a factor for Kosovo not to implement this project as Serbia does not recognise the Kosovo passports. This a sad truth of what wars bring.

Uh? Are you sure? It's only 25 km from Peja to the Montenegrin border and there is no Serbian territory. Serbia is in the Northeast from Peja and the road goes straight to the East to Montenegro! And I doubt that there are any Serb villages (or Serbs at all) on this 25 km through Rugova canyon. As far as I know this region had always a huge Albanian majority.

Well if you what you are saying is correct then our government is losing a good chance for further cooporation in trade and tourism with Montenegro. It seems our government has forgotten Montenegro alltogether as it is aiming to complete the motorway linking Albania and starting to the realisation of the motorway link with Macedonia. Serbia has been put aside for now because they refuse to link the Kosovo motorway with Nis and for this reason they want to connect the current motorway which is in construction with Skopje. Montenegro has recognised our statehood and we should offer you easier trade acess to Kosovo, Macedonia and other surrounding countries.

Highway construction funds are limited. It's probably not possible to simultaneously build highways to Albania, Macedonia, and Montenegro. Priorities must be set.

I don't see any possibility for Kosovo (or any of its neighbours) to qualify for European Regional Development Fund money in 2013-18. Croatia just barely qualified. I believe Croatia will be the last country to qualify for this five-year funding round. I guess Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia will all qualify for 2018-23.

Of course, there are other opportunities for the EU to provide subsidies.

I think the motorway link with Macedonia will go through a private render where the company builds the motorway has full ownership of that motorway for a limited amount of years and therefore gets its payback through tolls commonly found in most of European countries. I don't think there will ever be a motorway connection with Montenegro though because it will be economically unworthwhile for the Montenegrins to connect Kosovo to their capital city or their coastline.

The spatial plan for Montenegro till 2020 includes a motorway connection between Andrijevica (Motorway Bar-Boljare) and Kosovo through Cakor (Tunel). However. I doubt that construction will beginn until 2020 since Bar-Boljare and Adriatic-Ionian Highway are far more important for Montenegro right now - and there isn't done anything on both projects right now.

Anyway, they could open the pass nonetheless

After almost 3 years of construction, the flyover roundabout in Prishtina is almost done. They're pouring the asphalt now and putting some of the finishing touches on it. Photos are courtesy of the Ministry of Infrastructure (new name: it used to be known as the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunication).

Skopje Highway Risks Busting Kosovo’s Budget

Kosovo’s government has announced a major new highway to Macedonia, despite its existing financial commitments to finish building the country’s first highway to Albania.

Earlier this month, the cabinet announced that it planned to press on with a scheme to build a highway from Pristina to Skopje, capital of Macedonia.

The new highway will be 55km long and will have two tunnels. The longest tunnel will be built in Kacanik, 2.2 km meters long.The American-Turkish consortium Bechtel Enka is currently constructing Kosovo’s first highway, to Albania, at a cost of between 700 million euro and 1 billion euro.

Experts warn that the new highway could further imperil the country’s rocky finances.

Until 2007, Kosovo’s budget was characterised by budget surpluses of more than 7 per cent, but in 2010 the budget deficit was 2.6 per cent, largely because of increased capital expenditures on the Albania highway. This year’s deficit is expected to reach 5 per cent of the GDP.

Because of increased budget expenditure, and in particular spending on the highway and increased salaries for civil servants, the IMF halted its Stand-by Arrangement with Kosovo, depriving the country of 150 million euros in grants and loans.

An IMF assessment of Kosovo said: “New spending initiatives need to be costed thoroughly, and their accommodation requires higher revenues or expenditure cuts elsewhere.

“Importantly, the government plans another highway from Pristina to Skopje/Macedonia, for which a sound financing plan is an indispensable prerequisite.”

Lah Nitaj, the advisor to the Minister of Infrastructure, Fehmi Mujota, told Balkan Insight that a tender would be announced in July to construct the new road.

Construction of the new motorway is also foreseen in the Ministry of Finance’s long-term spending plans, where it is noted that work on “Route 6″ is supposed to start in the last quarter of 2012 and take three years.
Lumir Abdixhiku, of the think tank, the Institute Riinvest, said the new highway could not be built only with budget money, as there was no provision for this extra expense in the budget forecasts.

According to him, Kosovo would not be able to find the 600 million euro needed for this highway, especially while it was still struggling to find the 1 billion needed to finish the Vermice-Merdare highway.

“There is definitely no chance that this can be funded with budget money, as the country’s financial stability is under question even with the highway that has already started,” Abdixhiku said.

Abdixhiku added: “If they plan to build it with budget money, Kosovo risks entering a deeper budget crisis than Greece.”
But Lah Nitaj maintainted that the government had weighed all these issues and still believed the project could be completed without risking financial stability.

I guess it's because we're all excited to see the fruits of this investment.
