khl.com reported that US based contractor Bechtel has completed the construction of a 65 kilometer Route 6 motorway in Kosovo. Bechtel worked on the four-lane motorway, running from the capital Pristina to North Macedonia – as part of a JV with Turkish construction company Enka. The road is the centerpiece of a significant transport strategy for Kosovo, aimed at promoting economic growth within the country.

At the peak of construction activity, the Route 6 project was reported to be the largest employer in the country, with around 80% of its 3,350-strong workforce being Kosovan.

However, the new motorway will link with Route 7 another motorway built by the Bechtel-Enka team to form part of Corridor X – a major pan-European transport network, that is set to broaden trade opportunities for countries including Austria, Greece, Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia.
