Looks like this will be a motorway rest area!

Nice to see Kosovo finally catch up with the rest of ex Yugoslavia after no motorways were ever built in Kosovo by the Yugoslav government. After the completion of R7 and R6 motorways Kosovo will have about 170km of full profile motorways! Not bad for a small country!

Our northern neighbour needed for the same amount of kilometers in the flat vojvodina several years.

Great Progress in the Republic of Kosovo!

@shpirtkosova

This just looks like an interchange which is prepared for a toll station.

I agree. There is not enough space for a rest area.

This road is starting to look a whole lot better than Durrės-Morinė. Kosovo has a fascinating landscape. The way the motorway curves around that hill, it's just perfect. Almost hard to believe, like it was photoshopped or something.

The A1 motorway bends in Albania are too sharp and therefore limits the speed to 110kmph which is a shame as it probably has better views than the motorway in Kosovo. Still, I am proud of what both our countries are doing to unite our nation together.

Yes the landscape in the Kosovar side of the Albanian/Albanian border is great but the road through the mountains from Kukes to Milot is even more impressive, as to me mountains are always more impressive than fields .

In two years or so we will have a full-profile highway from Prishtine to Tirane and Durres and enjoy the beautiful and diverse nature of the land of the eagles...in the fields, through the mountains, by the sea...

There are mountains in the RKS side too; the area around the border is very mountainous, as is the area around Therande and Komoran.

Problem in Serbia for highway trough Vojvodina, was only finance, and political (read: construction mafia) ... If you remember, first concession for highway Horgoš-Požega, was granted to Austrian ALPINE POOR, then concession was abandoned from new Serbian government... then of course, you have ALPINE POOR prosecution first to Serbian courts, then to European ... that was very painful process which last for couple of years. When that was finished, second lane of highway trough Vojvodina was completed with Beška bridge (very expensive and complicated object) in less then one year (for bridge longer time).

Same for Kosovo, when you have money and support of Banks for credits and loans, and stable political situation, you can build any road or infrastructure object for very short time ...

Anyway, I think that only building infrastructures in poor countries on Balkan, can help to economy growth and prosperity. Smart people in Western Europe knew that, and they built a lot of highways. So, i hope that in future, e.g. 20 yrs, whole Balkan will be with good quality road networks, without borders, maybe in EU ... with average salary of 1000 euro ,but first corrupted and criminal politicians must be removed once for all ... I wish you many safe highway km in future

Sure. And It makes no sense to be rest area outside the motorway... If you go to "rest" there, you either have to leave the motorway or you must come from other road... Rest areas are with their entrance and exit on the motorway, not on other roads

Which is exactly how it is in that photo; you have the exit on the right side, you go to have a rest, and then you make a U-Turn and re-enter the motorway by going under it, and connecting on the left of the photo.

I don't know if it'll be a rest area, but the connections are there.

More photos. In the first photo in the left hand-side you can see the Republic of Kosovo - Republic of Albania border point.

Can't describe with words how happy I am and longing for to cruise on these new roads next year when I'm there. This summer I only had the benefit to drive the new highway in Albania since the one in Kosovo was under construction.
