Milot's node, a very important infrastructure segment for the north, is expected to be completed within 15 months.
During the inspections at this site, the Minister of Infrastructure Damian Gjiknuri, accompanied by the head of the Albanian Road Authority, Afrim Qendro, said that the funds for the 1.6 billion lekë budget have been found to complete the works.
Qendro said that all measures have been taken to make the passage of vehicles in this segment possible even during August.
"A few days ago a contract was concluded for the completion of the remaining works and filling the secondary road for the entire Milot node.
"We have started work and eventually, within 15 months, this node will end with all the complete technical solutions. Meanwhile this node will be functional and with the proper road safety elements," said Afrim Qendro.
Gjiknuri was told that the completion of this project will significantly facilitate traffic.
"The situation so far has been provisional and has created great problems with traffic.
With the prompt interventions and the additional funding that the Albanian government provided, including the new procedure that was just completed and the contract that was signed, we will enable at least the node to start functioning for the summer period.
"Even this summer, all vacationers will feel the big difference provided by the traffic facility in this node," said Damian Gjiknuri.
Milot's node is strategic for traffic after connecting to the National Road axis that runs from Tirana to Shkodra.
