Not in next two or three years. Kosovo Government has decided to leave the 2x2 highway Fushė Kosovė - Gjergjicė as it is, and to start a new motorway Prishtina - Skopje.

Unfortunately, that part of the Country has pretty much the same road infrastructure it had 15 years ago. Beside new layers of asphalt here and there not much development in that part.

Also, Kosovo government will most probably not concentrate major investments in that part in the near future as the population there is fairly small. All three municipalities in the north including a part of Mitrovica city (north) have no more than 40,000 inhabitants. This means that the current road conditions (1x1) are sufficient for the time being.

As for routes for the transportation of goods between serbia and Kosovo, they will be mostly concentrated on the "Ibrahim Rugova" highway which should either continue to Merdare or Mutivoda border crossing (decision has yet to be made).

The above mentioned section of R7, Prishtina and Fushe Kosova bypass is officially opened today.

In the opening ceremony took place President of Republic of Kosovo Atifete Jahjaga, Prime-minister of Republic of Kosove Hashim Thaēi, Ambassador of USA in Republic of Kosovo Tracey Jacobson, and other distinguished guests.

Interestingly, it opens to traffic exactly 1 year after the last segment opened (Duhėl - Gjergjicė 27-11-2012).

On 28 November is National Holiday (Flag's Day) of Albanians, thats why.

One more interesting fact is that this motorway was build exclusively with money of Kosovo Budget. Not a single penny donation or loan was given/taken for this motorway. And the cost of build and expropriation is 1 billion Euro. Plan is for the same way of financing for the other motorway - R6 (Prishtina - Skopje), which will start to bu built in the next few weeks.

The last section of the motorway are connected at point A to point B. The new section are not visible on maps yet but the non motorway road are instead recommended.

The trip from Kosovo Border at Merdare with Serbia to the Kosovo border at Vermice with Albania have been shortened with at least 1 hour. And the trucks and heavy traffic will be moved out of house areas.

Anyways congrats on the opening on the new highway to Albania and hope to see the highway to Skopje finished soon as well!
I tend to get insecure when people use phrases like "North Kosovo"... it almost makes it sound like North Korea... thats the last thing we want in Europe... I was just telling him to use the correct term accepted by both parties.

North Kosovo seems to me as normal as South Kosovo, West Croatia, East Australia or North South Africa

What about an exctension towards Merdare?

The government will not priority that when Serbia wont build their extension from Nis. The money can be used better elsewhere.

Serbia will not build its motorway to Kosovo because it has no interest to do so, the only way they will build their side is if the EU funds it. I don't think Kosovo has any real interest to invest in 20km of motorway for the sake of Serbian imports. I think a connection with Skopje will be sufficient enough for access to European Corridor X and the Theselanik port in Greece.
