The axis between Rinas Airport and Tirana is probably the most sensitive development area in all of Albania. This axis is basically composed of two distinct sections. The first section refers to the road from the Rinas Airport to the intersection with the multi-lane
road which connects Tirana to Durres. This intersection located in the Kashar commune is known as the Berxull Node and has already drawn specific attention from a planning viewpoint. The second section of this sensitive axis goes from the Berxull Node to the center of Tirana. This last section is also influenced by its position as part of the Tirana-Durres road. Nevertheless, a high share of development pressure is motivated by transit flows to and from the airport service area.
