After decades of rule under the socialist system and after two years of war, in 1999, Kosovo was one of the countries in Europe with the most undeveloped and underinvested road infrastructure. Despite, the increased investments in road infrastructure, in the recent post-war years, it still lacks behind in comparison to the regional and European countries. The under-investment and poor road infrastructure network has severe consequences for the overall economic development in increasing unnecessary costs, impeding time productivity, road safety and so forth. However, Kosovo’s network has good potential for development ... The recommendations resulting from the various analyses and studies in this project, indicate that the government should, instead of reducing quantities of works, look out for off-budget funding alternatives for its major road infrastructure, as it is the case of Route 6-Section Prishtinë-Macedonian border, take the lead in improving the local roads network in Kosovo and be extremely cautious in further expenditures in road infrastructure projects.
