Hello there. I would like to know the precise length of the finished sections of the motorway in Kosovo. Secondly, I would like to now the length of all expressway sections. I was wondering how many kms of high class roads exist in RKS. Thanks.

Kosovo law categorizes highways as follows:

Motorway; is a road that has two carriageways, at least 2 lanes in each direction and hard shoulder in each direction. Lanes width at least 3.5 m and hard shoulder at least 2.5 m. No intersections at same level. Access must be controlled. Speed Limit 130 km/h.

Road reserved for the traffic of motorized vehicles; is a road that has one or two carriageways (1X2 or 2X2). Lane width at least 3.25 m. No intersections at same level. Access must be controlled. Speed Limit 110 km/h.

Fast Road; is a road that has two carriageways, at least 2 lanes in each direction, and may have a hard shoulder. No intersections at same level. Speed Limit 100 km/h.

National Road - other roads that connect main cities. Speed Limit 80 km/h.

Motorways in Kosovo:
Vërmicë - Gjergjicë and Prishtina&Fushë Kosova bypass = 78 km

Road reserved for traffic of motorized vehicles = 0 KM

Fast roads in Kosovo:
Prishtina - Gjergjicë; QMI - Prishtina - Balshaj = 54 km

Motorway R6 Prishtina - Hani i Elezit (55 km) is in the bidding process and should start to be constructed this spring. Construction should last three years.

No road reserved for traffic of motorized vehicles is being planned or is U/C;

Fast roads U/C are Gjergjicë - Gllarevë and Balshaj- Stanofc = 20 km

Also, in bidding process soon will be the fast road Stanofc - Mitrovicë = 16 km; 60 million Euro loan is already contracted with Islamic Bank; - when this section will be completed Prishtina and Mitrovica will be connected with a fast road.

Planned is to be connected with the fast road Gllarevë and Pejë (32 km), in the next three years; - when this section will be completed Prishtina and Pejë will be connected with a fast road.

I guess both would be called "expressways"?

According to the definition M-2 and M-9 both feature 4 lanes. When have the constructions of these section been started? Completion dates? Section lengths?

Fast Roads don't have to have limited access.

Thanks foor the answer.

Take one more look at your laws. I think it is the other way around.
Roads reserved for motirezed vehicles don't have to be with controlled acces.

Article 3

Actually, about the roads reserved for motorized vehicles it is not explicitly said in the law that this category of roads must have controlled access. It is said that these roads must allow minimum speed 60 km/h of traffic flow (motorways 80 km/h), which can be interpreted that these roads have limited/controlled access.

Fast roads by law do not have to meet the requirement for minimum speed of 60 km/h, or any other minimum speed.

By the way, English translation of the law, as you might noticed is scandalous. This "translation" may lead you to misinterpretation of the law.

I think your law on traffic safety is heritage from Yougoslavia. We have the same in Bosnia. Fast road is a term that was not known in YU. The bosnian law added the term fast road. The traffic sign for a fast road and a road reserved for m.v. is the same.

Only fast roads must have controlled acces.

Kosovan law has some heritage from ex-Yu law, but not much.

Heritage from ex-Yu law is the term "Road reserved for the traffic motored vehicles”, for example, but from the law is expelled 120 km/h speed limit for motorway, name "magistrala" (now "national road"), design of traffic signs, etc.

I think Kosovo should focus on connecting all major cities with Prishtina with expressways with limited access.... Then later take steps to connect with neighbouring countries with motorway... There is no point building motorways towards the boarders when you have no motorway network to connect neighbouring countries to.

What is going on with the highway Prishtina-Skopje? I've read that the construction works will start in 2014, and the section will be build from Prishtina to the Macedonian border.

The have yet not selected a contract winner. But it should be done in good time before summer and works are planned to start by then.

The good thing is that we dont have any fastroads in that area now so they will have to build a full motorway profile from the border to Prishtina. An new border passing will also be build.

We should expect to see it complete by 2016-2017.

They have selected the winner, Benchtel-Enka will build the new highway. The work starts less than two months.

The road from Pristina to Lipjane is fast road. But the highway will be a complete new one.

Was meaning to say a fast road with 2 lanes in each direction.

But I have missed those articles saying Benchtel-Enka won, can you post it?

Actually, road Prishtina - QMI (Lipjan) is 2X2 highway, with controlled access, with additional service roads in both sides of the highway!

Well that's right, and hopefully they dont use that stretch like they used the fastroad between Prishtina and Peje.

The new highway R6 from Prishtina to the border with Macedonia are expected do be done within 42 months of contract sign.

The price offered by Bechtel Enka is ~600million euro, but I would not be surprised if got higher....

That road is nice, but it needs shoulders. There is no space to pull over in case of a breakdown or emergency. Ambulances cannot pass a traffic jam, the traffic is boxed in between the guard rails. A decent road nonetheless.
