With the growing demand for road spaces, Transballkanike will become the main artery to connect the central areas of Vlora with the highway and the Harbor area. Currently, the street layout is focused on motorized vehicles that dominate the space. However, there is no clear structure of accessibility along the road and mobility for pedestrians and cyclists.
Four design principles have been developed as guiding elements for the design proposal, which aim for increased livability and multifunctionality of the street. The proposal also strives for a continuous profile with densification of trees to visually downscale the street and create shade. The connectivity to adjacent medium size streets from the main lanes will be improved, while small streets and buildings will be accessible via secondary lanes. The main users of the secondary lanes will be pedestrians and cyclists, but also cars and small trucks will be able to use them in order to access short-term parking. Long-term parking will be organized on the backside of the buildings. Over the entire length of the street, 'furniture islands' will be placed to host multiple uses in public space. Building gaps will be filled with pocket parks, each having its own program to create an identity and address specific user groups defined by age.
