Starting from the two last decades of the last century, the development of transport is tending more and more towards the contradiction that brings increasing demand for transport and environmental pollution. The blocking of roads by their vehicles overcrowding, especially private cars, has become a common phenomenon. The transport development trends in condition of the free market competition are showing irrevocably, that the roads will continue to increase their share of passenger and freight transport in the coming decades. As a result of this expectations investment in the roads are expected to increase further. The question arises. Can investment in roads solve the contradiction between transport development and environmental pollution? The example of Albania, especially the social economic development of Tirana - Durres axis shows that investment and supporting policies only on roads are not the right solutions to the problem. Unfortunately, though these big investments, social costs of transport in this area are growing steadily. It is necessary to understand that the support of the policy of investment in integrated transport is the only way to reduce social costs and ensure a sustainable development of public policies in the transport sector.
