Moving by car in Tirana is always becoming an impossible mission. Roads blocked by vehicles and citizens waiting for hours to get to work, this is the daily view of the capital.
Even at the weekend, Tirana seems to be paralyzed by long queues of vehicles. While it was expected that at least during Saturday and Sunday there will be a reduction in traffic, nothing has changed.
In these pandemic conditions, even ambulances find it impossible to move as they are blocked on these roads.
The national axes have been worked on in recent years, the same thing has not happened with the road junctions at the entrance and exit of Tirana.
The aggravated situation is presented at the turn of Kamza and at the former Shqiponja Square, which is exactly the point that connects Tirana with the north and south of the country.
But on weekdays, traffic is also heavy on the city’s inner streets. This chaotic situation starts in the early hours of the morning and lasts until the late hours of the evening.
Arriving at the destination can take up to two hours. Although the traffic police has increased patrols, it has not provided a solution to the traffic problem.
