The reconstruction of Bulevardi Deshmoret e Kombit has increased the traffic chaos around the city, but the area is starting to look better. One side of the Boulevard between the Lana and Mother Teresa Square is almost completed, and work is continuing outside the Art Gallery.
The grounds of the Art Gallery are also getting a face lift. The front lawn has been replanted and the pathways around the building are being retiled.
Work has also started outside the Opera House where the footpaths have been pulled up.
