TIRANA, April 19
Main road segments such as Tirana-Elbasan, Kukes-Morina, Kardhiq-Delvina, Fieri Bypass, and Tirana big ring road are expected to be completed within this governing term. This was declared by Minister of Energy and Infrastructure Damian Gjiknuri said on Wednesday.
According to him, the road between Qukes and Qafe Plloc requires an additional fund of $50 million due to poor management. In the meantime, he added that Euro 11 million are required for the completion of the Nation’s Road.
“Those are not good projects. These are the costs of poor management,” Gjiknuri said.
Moreover, he promised that Tirana-Elbasan will be completed within this year even though an additional fund of €14 million is required.
Regarding Arbri Road, which will be constructed based on the public-private-partnership scheme, work is expected to start soon.
“The contract entered into force and the company has the financial funds. The detailed project was submitted three days ago and we believe that work will start in a month,” Gjiknuri said.
On the other hand, Tirana big ring road, Kardhiq-Delvina will be funded by the state budget. Fier bypass will be complete within 2018 while Vlora Bypass requires more time.
