That road is only 2 km long, and it can be asphalted in few weeks. Problem is to agree both countries to open a new border crossing. Nothing new about it.

This road (Deqan - Plav) has started to be build from Deqan. It will be 35 km long. In territory of Kosovo the road will be long 20 km and it will cost 50 million euros. But/but it will take 5-10 years until the completion in Kosovo side.

There were/are some small border line disputes with Montenegro in that area preventing opening the road. Those issues were solved a few months ago on a conference in Vienna but the agreement has yet to be approved by the Kosovorian parliament.

But the vote is boycotted by the opposition parties preventing the parliament from working. That are my informations about the problem. As soon as the border line is fixed, opening the road should happen pretty fast. The raod is on both sides in good condition, there's just the need for border infrastructure.

Montenegrin prime minister has shown that he is open to further discussion with Kosovo on the border issue. Opposition is holding back developments at the moment.

So if the opposition does not bring any teargas anymore into the parliament, the Pec-Cakor road could be opened soon

Yes, albeit, the teargas is entertaining.

Only the segment from Morina to Gjurgjica on Route 7 will be tolled as soon as the motorway on Route 6 are finished. Which is expected to finished within 2 years.

New pictures from december on:
http://kosovomotorway.com/route6/alb...december-2015/

I dont know the exact location but it is mainly overpasses, interchanged around Lipjan about km 1 to km 25 in the south direction from Prishtina.

Most of the jobs are finished untill the first blue dot in the south direction of Prishtina, and more work are being done until the second blue dot.



Keep in mind that the works are not being done like on the map but the motorway goes at little more in the east direction of lipjan as shown here:

Two maps from the road network in Kosovo.
First one showing the different categories of roads and the other one showing the maintenance. Last update of the road network was june 2015, so the new road connecting Prishtina south with R7 and R6 are not in the map. Neither is the construction of R6 from Prishtina to Hani i Elezit shown in the map.

Interesting. When I search on google, I can now find other older documents or sites where this numbering can be found. Since when is this? Is there an official announcemt or document bout the renumbering?

Why did Kosovo not introduce a total new road numbering? Nowadays still the old Serbian/Yugoslav numbering is used.

I do not think there is any official announcement, at least not what I am aware of.

I do not think they need new numbers for now. These old ones make sense for now and people dont tend to actually describe the roads by their names but rather the biggest cities connected by them.
For example old M9 or new N9 are more referred as Prishtina - Peje Highway.

But many regional roads are being upgraded to two lanes express roads so it would not make sense to have old R number used then.

Some photos from february according to kosovomotorway.com
As soon as the last bridges are done, it will probably dont take long before it can be opened for traffic towards Lipjan and maybe even Ferizaj in time for summer/early spring.

Km 13, (from the R6 and R7 interchange perhaps)


Km 14




Km17


Km19


Km20

An article from PrishtinaInsight regarding the new motorway R6 from Prishtina to the border with Macedonia at Hani i Elezit. It shows the backside of motorwayprojects for the locals where it passes.

http://prishtinainsight.com/transit-country-mag/

Photo near Marigona Residence, seems as there is only some painting left to do and put up some signs...



Some interesting quotes from the article.

Quote:
Soon, a stretch of Route 6 – Kosovo’s new national motorway from Prishtina to Hani i Elezit, on the border with Macedonia – will be passing through Qamili’s front yard, splitting his property into two pieces of land.
Quote:
Around 80 percent of the land affected by the construction of the new motorway is agricultural, according to the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning.
Quote:
So far, 1,260 properties covering an area of ​​252 hectares – an approximate value of 64,181,544 euros – have been expropriated by the government. The total cost of land acquisition is yet to be determined, but already some landowners are receiving up to 40,000 euros for their properties.
Quote:
transit time between Prishtina and the border with Macedonia, which currently takes about an hour and a half.
Quote:
5% of Kosovo’s trade exchange passes through Hani i Elezit, making it the busiest customs point.
Quote:
travel time from Prishtina to the border with Macedonia will take approximately 20 minutes. To Ferizaj, it will take just 15 minutes, down from an average commute time of 45 minutes.
Quote:
“Our home will be too close to the highway for anyone to live in it. It will be somewhere from seven to eight meters in front of the house,” Shpejtim Azemi said.

The Project is part of Route 6b of the South-East Europe Transport Observatory (SEETO) road network and runs from Pejė to Pristina. It connects via Pristina to Corridor VIII in FYR Macedonia in the south and to Corridor X in Serbia via Route 7 in the north. The Project will facilitate connection to the city of Pejė which is the administrative and economic centre of Kosovo's western region.

EUR 40,000,000.00

A sovereign loan to Kosovo to co-finance the construction works related to the Project.

Total Project Cost
EUR 113,400,000.00

The total Project cost is estimated at approximately EUR 113.4 million.

Categorised A (ESP 2014). The construction of the road N9 Prishtinė - Pejė (SEETO Route 6 B), section from Kijevė - Klina to Zahaq ( 32 Km) has the potential to result in significant adverse environmental and social impacts and requires Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and a formal participatory public consultation process, inclusive a minimum of 120 days public disclosure of the ESIA package.

The interesting part is around min 2:20.
They speak albanian but you can also see the terrain where they will build to the motorway over existing national road from Prishtina to Skopje.

As Ulpiana mentioned in another thread, it was first planned to built tunnels but now they seem to preparing to build "bridges" around the mountains/hills.

Thanks for the video. It's hard to imagine building a proper 4x4 motorway there. I've driven from Prishtina to Skopje 1.5 years ago and honestly it's not really a suitable terrain for building a motorway.

Anyway, If they do it that way and can make it happen, I don't mind either

There is not official date about that. But they are probably waiting for a loan from EU to finance it and build it at the same time as Serbia build their part towards the border.

But as Bechtel Enka seem to get all the motorway jobs in Kosovo I would guess that there could be more development on this front when the most sections on R6 are done.
