The Trans Adriatic Pipeline AG (TAP) hosted an inauguration ceremony near Çorovoda, attended by the Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, Minister of Energy and Industry, Damian Gjiknuri, and Managing Director at TAP, Ian Bradshaw, to mark this occasion.

Construction and rehabilitation of roads and bridges

Expected to be complete in 2016, TAP will construct and rehabilitate approximately 100 km of road along the pipeline’s route, and build three new bridges whilst rehabilitating over 40 existing bridges in the regions of Korçë, Berat and Fier.

Construction is critical for TAP’s progress and economic growth in Albania

Prime Minister Rama and Minister Gjiknuri emphasized the importance of the project to Albania when speaking to an audience that included foreign diplomats, members of the Albanian parliament, representatives of local authorities and other key stakeholders.

TAP Managing Director, Ian Bradshaw, said: “TAP aims to build a modern pipeline that will safely deliver Caspian gas to Europe in early 2020. The construction of access roads and bridges in Albania is critical to our project’s progress.” He added: “The rehabilitated roads and bridges will contribute not only to the modernization of the transport infrastructure but also to transport safety. They will boost access to markets and services, thus contributing to the long-term economic growth of many Albanian regions.”
