I dont think its necessary tbh. First of all the strech isnt that long and secondly, if i remember right, there are plenty of entrances/exists along the road quite close to eachother.

Now you can also get road direction on the last segment of R7, the Prishtina bypass.

In a time Before there existed motorways in Kosovo, traveling between Merdare(near Podujeve) at the northeast border with Serbia to Vermice(near Prizren) in the southwest border with Albania, would take 2 hours and 40 minutes. The road was around 140 km long. And you had to drive through cities and inhabited areas with bad road conditions in some areas.

Now with the two R7 motorway stretches, the road is around 126 km long and the trip takes only 1 hour and 30 minutes. The only part with only 1 lane per direction is near the border with Serbia, after that it is full profile motorway shifting to 2 lanes per direction, expressway and then full profile motorway again.

Even though the price could be considered high, it is a welcomed news for the tranzit traffic but also for the locals

Well they might upgrade the M9 section of R7 to motorway... That's what the plan seems to be currently. They may also extend the R7 from Besi to Merdare if Serbia gets the EU funding for their section on the other side of the border. Both Kosovo and Serbia are playing the waiting game.

The person who contentiously posted and kept us updated on this thread has been banned because he complained about other people using his photos on Serbian side of the forum.

I can confirm that the works are continuing but they are still at an early stage of construction. As soon as the first layer of asphalt is made I will strive to take a few pictures and post them here.

Albania-Kosovo Highway Costs Soar To 2 Billion Euros

Cache of official documents detail for first time how lobbying, poor-planning, “uncompetitive tenders”, failure to set cost caps and “inflated” prices left Albanian and Kosovan taxpayers with a two billion euro bill for just 137km of road.

78 km of motorways were built in Kosovo, in flat terrain. Very/very high price.

Well there seem to be some things in this World you only can learn by making the misstakes first. This sure is one...

But even though it did cost more than it should had, I Think this is one of those Projects that you still should give a green light. No matter what the cost is. I doubt it will make a difference in the motorway to Skopje but maybe in the future the next generations will learn and understand how it should be done.

Thank you for the article.
