Every day, dozens of vans of Tirana-Durres line “terrorize” the young mothers and the maternity staff “Queen Geraldine” becoming constant obsession. Traffic police launches action to remove vans from the road in front of Maternity Hospital. Fines for drivers, were obtained the documents, too
Come to Durres, Durres! This call is the obsession that accompanies long maternity patients and staff of the old Maternity “Queen Geraldine” at the railway station. Screams start in the morning and finish late in the afternoon. No sedative that can make childbirth women to sleep or those with problems who are in the emergency room of the hospital. Shouts come from very close, even though there is no vans or bus station. Below the window is just a urban station and a line for taxis. But executives vans that make every day the line of Durres and vice versa continue informally to fill their vehicles with passengers exactly at the bus stop, below the windows of this maternity. Patients themselves show us their concerns.

“The whole night without sleep with problems from birth, all day without sleep from the noise of drivers. We can not open the windows, but also without opening them the noise comes inside. We are sometimes obliged to notify the police by the number 129 to get a solution for this concern. They have responded and we have seen from the windows that police came, they have got the documents or have put fine, but again the same situation. Each day the same concern. I will not stay long, but will be other patients who will have the same concern as mw, because the situation has not changed “speaks for investigim.al Danilea.B, one of the patients admitted to an emergency room, in second floor of the maternity hospital..
Reanimation room has windows on the very spot where the vans are stationed in Tirana-Durres line. “You journalists must follow our concern because there is not one or two days, but it is forever. We addressed our concerns to the police, they came and put fines, but only that, the vans are there state “doctors and nurses of the maternity, adding that” those who feel even more the concern are the patients of our hall who are after surgery and serious pressure or heart problems. From the morning until late afternoon, they fail to put in sleep due to the yelling ,heard also with the windows closed. We do not know how it will go this issue, is very worrying. “Climb down and meet two of Road police effectives .
They are fined two vans while drivers ask them to forgive. “What can we do, we need a cooperation structures. The only

thing we can do as Traffic Police is to put fines or to obtain documents. But there should also be a collaboration with the Municipality as these vans should not be allowed to pass Customs roundabout. There must wait the passengers and not here in the center. We see vans that go to the center of Tirana to take passengers and shouting Durres, Durres. It is not normal “they say. Later, nearby comes a car with two traffic police officers, who are trying to take over the situation. I also contacted them and asked about the vans place of Tirana-Durres line and communicate concerns of maternity patients and staff of “Queen Geraldine”. “Yes madam, it is a very chaotic situation and it comes from the lack of cooperation structures. The only thing that we can do is to o put fine. We’re coming out as officers to resolve this situation as police are unable to do that. But three thousand fine and receiving documents is not giving solutions. I understand the concerns of maternity patients and staff, we have been announced. They have had also this concern our relatives, one of them being my wife and I tried it myself when I found myself even when i visit her”.
Today we have taken an action not to permit, started in the morning and again you see that vans are stationed at maternity hospital. I’m sorry to say, but we are failing as long as there is no police cooperation structures. Buses are in line station, and there was a surge vans in this road. There where you see two vans parked is the station line is “Tirana e Re” and really is not allowed. This is why we intervene but again tomorrow those are still there “answers one of traffic police officers, who was leading the operation to remove the vans from the road in front of maternity hospital, opposite the Natural Sciences Faculty.
The Officer invites us to pursue this action and leads to the Municipality to set in motion the structures as well as to provide a solution to this problem, but not the only one. We go near the Municipal Police of Tirana to talk about this concern for the line vans Tirana-Durres and concerns that bring to patients and the maternity staff, but not only them, shouting from the morning till the evening Durres, Durres, as an invitation to passengers traveling to this city. At the Municipal Police they told us that we should go back the Municipality of Tirana to learn what will be done with the place where to stay vans, while removing from the maternity they say that premises should be taken by the Traffic Police.
