That is nor graffiti, it means that the motorway cannot be acessed to go to these places because it is under construction.

Chris, I have no idea why they have numbered it R7.... Maybe is is the Albanian for rrugeshpejte.. Which means fast road/motorway. LumiLumi should know.

Since this is a motorway, and not an expressway, it could not have been named R because of this made-up word "rrugeshpejte" that a couple of people insist on using. It is, rather, because it is both "Rruge" (road) in Albanian, and because it is also "Route" in English. All of the official documentation, when written in English, refers to this road as Route 7 and to the future Prishtina - Skopje motorway as Route 6.

Does "autoudha" mean a motorway in Albanian? In Albania it's called "autostrada" (or alternatively "autorruga", I think).

OK, let me give you a quick recap on the difference in roads and names in Kosovo and Albania... Basically Albania has Italian influence on their roads after the fall of communism, where they had to start road infrastructure from scratch whilst Kosovo still has some Yugoslav influenced road building techniques, styles and in some cases even signage such as the motorway signage it has now opted for. Roads in Kosovo are called Magjistrale for highways and dual carriageways (expressways) where as in Albania they opt for Italian superstrada (expressway) even incases where these highways are not dual carriageays... In Albania they use Italian road signage and call their motorways "Autostrada". In Kosovo however, people are not happy with the word "Autostrada" and are campaigning for a more "Albanian" version of the word for motorways. Many people want it to be called Rrugeshpejtė/a or Autorruga. This is basically the difference. The Serbs I think call motorways something like "Autoputi" I'm not percise on that.

By law, in Kosovo, official term for motorway is “autoudhė”, while the name for ex-magistralas is changed to national roads. Law: http://www.kuvendikosoves.org/common...3-L-120_al.pdf

In the beginning it says, that the text uses "Autoudha" instead of "Autostrada" and a few sentences later you can read "Autostrada" again?!

Every albanian dictonary translates Motorway with Autostrada. Autoudha is until now just a creation of the Ministry of Transportation of the Republic of Kosovo, but even they, including minister Mujota, are still using the term Autostrada and not Autoudha.

The law takes precedence over what "every albanian dictionary" allegedly says.

Autoudhe is on the Google translate... If you type "autoudhe" albanian -> English you get "motorway".

I am starting to adopt to the use of the term Autoudhė. It has a good sound to it and of course it's more albanian than the word Autostrada.
Government authorities in Albania should pay close attention to the way the language is being reformed in Kosovo by the authorities there. I have yet to see a road sign with ortographic errors there. They should hire web developers from Kosovo as well since they are more gifted and creative. Ministry of Transportation website looks hideous. People in Albania have shit taste. Sorry to say but I'm in the minority in this regard

The Ministry of Transport website looks like it was designed in 1995! I don't think its that the people of Albania have "no taste" as you put it, but to the lack of interest.

Trust me, they have no taste on anything. I see it with my own eyes every fooking day. People in Kosovo pay more attention to aesthetics and the small details. And they're very gifted in webdesign and multimedia production. I see it as I am a detail-oriented person myself. That's why Edi Rama hired a studio from there to design the city hall website. One of the most well known studios in Prishtina, Ogilvy, designed the Socialist Party's website.

I don't agree with the term "Rrugė Nacionale" (National Road/s). "Nacionale" is clearly not an albanian word. We have our own beautiful word "Kombėtare" yet we choose to use other foreign words. The authorities in charge are a bunch of idiots.

Going back to road classification differences between Kosovo and Albania.... I have found the Albanian classification in Albania, completely different to that of Kosovo.

Kosovo

“Autoudhė”
“Rrugė nacionale”
“Rrugė publike”

“Rrugė urbane”
“Brezi rrugor”
“Brezi mbrojtės rrugor”
“Ndėrtimi”
“Rrugė rajonale”
“Rrugė lidhėse”
“Rrugė e pa kategorizuar”
Albania

Quote:
A. Autostradė
B. Rrugė interurbane kryesore
C. Rrugė interurbane dytėsore
D. Rrugė urbane kryesore
E. Rrugė urbane dytėsore
F. Rrugė lokale
