I hope the struma motorway will not have plants or grass in the middle, it looks way better with no plants.

1999 map of Bulgaria, made by the Dutch automobilist association ANWB. Notice that only few things have changed since the nineties on the Bulgarian road network.

2007 map of the same automobile club;

There is some progress, but the Struma isn't showed yet. However, these maps tends to be a bit outdated in Eastern Europe.

chris, they had almost no money, they improved alot of streets but didn´t make them motorways, now they are building motorways where the national roads are, examples are the very new struma motorway and maritca motorway.

10 km of motorway on the Sofia Ring? Btw, Dupnica was previously called Stanke Dimitrov, right?

What do you mean, from 1999 to 2006 they built 150 km new motorways man, and not only 10 km, they will build another 700. And yeah, dupnica, the town at the foothills of the rila mountain was called stanke dimitrov. How do you know?

^ I have some ancient map. With those 10 km I meant that obviously (I didn't know that) there's 10 km of motorway on the ringroad around Sofia.

I don´t know the ringrouad has 10 km moorway either. They are buildinga new motorway which should take the traffic to the south away of sofia and the bad ringroads and directly lead to the connection with the new struma motorway.

Does anyone know wheather they are continuing the struma motorway? And does anyone know which part they will build this year? I´ve heard they might start at the bulgarian greek border kulata.

Slovenia looks very nice and has very nice road network man, could you open a thread and post pics of the motorway lubljana - jesenice which goes to Austria? I trave3l there quite often, i like to travel there because of the mountains very close to the motorway, the last ten kilometers before Austrian border are really impressive.

^ Hehe, thanks, you're a clairvoyant, I'm gonna photograph it tomorrow. I also like those last 10 km (around Jesenice), only the Jesenice "skyline" is ugly as hell! That's why everyone's moving out, only radical Muslims are staying. Btw, the thread is already open in this subforum, it's on the first page currently.

^ Don't worry, I'll take a pic of the highest and most pain-in-the-ass-to-climb mountain there (Stol, 2236 m).

can somebody bring out some information about tunnels on Bulgarian motorways? i only heard about tunnel Trajanova Vrata (how long it is? something about 1000 m) and i know for some tunnels at A2 between Gorno Kamavci and Botevgrad.
also, any kind of information about viaducts are welcome as well, too!

where is this and what are the names and lenghts of this tunnel and viaduct?

this is the Hemus motorway, i don´t know how this tunnel is called, there are quite long tunnels there, there are quite long and high viaducts, one tunnel is called topli dol and another one is called vitinia as far as i know.

But man, that´s the Hemus motorway, the tunnels and bridges are constructed more than ten years ago and look dated and not very modern, keep an eye at the new motorways, struma, maritsa and cherno more, they surely look extremly modern and shiny, at least the struma motorway does look extremly modern and shiny.
