- 102 KM motorway running through 6 important regions
- International standard design speed of 120 KM per hour
- Motorway modernizes the existing road network to comply with international standards
The project is broken down into 9 Sections, going from the border of Albanian at Vermice to the North of Pristina.
To take advantage of the M9 current infrastructure upgrade from a two lane to a four-lane road (to be completed by 2011), the Route 7 Motorway will defer Section 6 and utilize the M9 to reduce the overall initial project costs.
The motorway will be a two dual-lane carriageway designed to International standards and specifications, with a design speed of 120 km/hr throughout most of the motorway.
The alignment is based off the 2006 preliminary design with additional optimization to reduce project costs by diverting around the mountainous region, which eliminates the need for tunneling and additional large structures.
