Any info about the 2 sections which were announced to be opened in 2016?

R6: Prishtina (R7) – Lipjan ~10km (October 2014 to July 2016) – projectmap
R6: Lipjan – Babush ~10km (October 2014 to Late 2016) – projectmap

Minimum the first one was not opened as announced. Any new estimated opening date?

Quick Reply: I have not seen or heard anything officials about any new deadlines.
They were supposed to open the stretch to Lipjan as a first segment and open from Lipjan to Babush as a second segment.
Later it was told that they would open the hole stretch until Babush by the end of July which were not either followed according to problems near Babush. According to a user in the albanian subforum with intel, the latest news is that they are working more intensively especially near Babush. Until Lipjan you have it basically completed and you not much hard work are left to Babush. So I would say you will see an opening no earlier then october this year. Which would mean they are close to their previous overall schedule.

There are some problems in latest opening stretch from Veternik, Prishtine connection with the motorway R7, R6 and towards N9.

This is the fast answer, perhaps there is other users who have some new information and can update us.

Some new information regarding the deadline from the local forum for road R6 connecting Prishtina - Hani i Elezit:


Quote:
Currently, 6 kilometers of motorway has been opened to traffic in 2015, and an additional 19 km will be opened in 2016. Overall Completion time for the project is October 2018.
http://www.enka.com/portfolio-item/p...orway-route-6/


The information did not used to be there before so it is probably reliable.

Ne satelite images on the first stretch of R7 from the R6/R7 interchange outside Prishtina towards first exit for Lipjan. The motorway then continues towards in the southern direction towards the border with Macedonia.

R6/R7 interchange outside Prishtina:
https://www.google.se/maps/@42.61962.../data=!3m1!1e3

First exit outside Lipjan
https://www.google.se/maps/@42.54809.../data=!3m1!1e3

The stretch is about 9 km and from the images it seem 99% completed and since the images is probably some months old but only been added now I am surprised they have not opened it. Especially since it would would make for a pretty good bypass for Prishtina.

The imagery is dated 1 August 2016, so it's fairly new. And yes it appears on the satellite imagery that it could open to Lipjan very soon.

They must be deliberately postponing the opening up to Lipjan and waiting for a month or two to open it up to Babush i Muhaxhereve, cca. 20 km. The ministry is exprecting works to finish until the end of October.

When exactly was the 7.6km section from Gjurgjicë to Kijevë opened 4-laned to traffic?

Is there any news about R6? It was expected that about 20km will be opened for traffic by late October?

Well, officially and technically not, there was not any ceremony. But the main issue was expropriation of a gas station, which was done during April. There remains one outstandig work to be done, a bridge of about 150 m of length, which we cannot reasonably expect to be completed in the near future.

As for R6, 20.4 km are most likely expected to be opened during November. The ministry had said earlier by late October, but the contruction company is now saying before the end of the year. Go figure. No announcement has been made yet.

MichiH you'll want to add two more projects to your list:
  • N2: Prishtinë - Lumadh 16.4 km (2012 - 21.12.2015)
  • N9: Pejë - Zahaç 6.7 km (August 2016 - 2017)

Also we can safely assume sections C2A and C2B from Babush to Gabrricë (21.6 km combined) of R6 will be opened come autumn next year because all outstanding works have almost been finished, except two hill excavations, which are also well underway. This leaves last mountainous sections of about 18 km from Gabrricë to Hani i Elezit, in which works have started too, for 2018.

Thanks but do these projects really fulfill my rules to be added?

- must be grade-separated
- should be access-controlled
- does not have U turns to travel in reverse

[...]
I'm a little bit confused about M or N designations, what's correct or is it just a language issue?

Yes I think so, they're expressways. N2 has two or three roundabouts in the beginning but it's mostly grade-separated and access-controlled, there's fresh satellite imagery on Google Earth. Same goes for the new N9 segment.

The Ministry of Infrastructure is using new designations for some time now because the Law on Roads changed, namely M roads (magjistrale) are now N (nacionale), but adaptation is slow. I believe there should be a new by-law or official decision on numbering soon too.

Expressways with roundabouts? I don't think so

SH4 in Albania has also roundabouts... Okay, to be correct, the expressway ends just before the roundabout and begins again after.

An example, I'm sure we can find more. Definitions vary, I was going by limited-access road:
