I am wondering why noone has shown the pictures and reportage of the Struma motorway, since the progress of the construction went on and is pretty far now. Some sections are reaedy to be paved as it looks like. Let's prey that it will be as good as the old section and not be as crappy as the Lyulin motorway.

I do not want to spa the thread, but the last reportage has not been shown and it shows quite a few pics that show big progress on the construction.

Yes, but nothing specific yet about the exact location or when we can expect it to be finished. A bridge between Oryahovo and Becket is also in the plans.

Funny, but more to the peculiar side. [IMG]file:///C:%5CUsers%5CDragos%5CAppData%5CLocal%5CTemp%5Cmsohtmlclip1%5C01%5Cclip_image001.gif[/IMG]

So, how serious is the planned Ruse-Istanbul motorway? In Romania, the news has been met with enthusiasm but also with disbelief.



Especially since our former governments were so reluctant to the Vidin-Calafat bridge, this planned motorway of yours came as a pleasent surprise.

It's planned not as a motorway, but as an expressway. Not so big difference though, as by the changes in the law speed limit on expressways will be 120 km/h and the only difference will be that there wont be a hard shoulder everywhere, but some shorter emergency stopping lanes at every km. The big question is if there will be a real investor to take this project on concession. If it becomes reality, it will be a private toll road, not one built with money from the government or EU.

Driver of the heavy truck that hit the overpass on the construction site of LOT3 of A1 was not wearing his seatbelt, and the result is:



Fortunately, he hasn't suffered any hard injury.

Hello!
What's new on the Struma motorway?
As stage works on the portion Dolna Dikanya - Dupnitsa?
But the portion Sandanski - Kulata?

In the last few days they finally started active working with a lot of heavy machinery, so progress on LOT4 of A6 Struma will be also probably seen very soon.

The tenders for the two lots of the western part of Sofia's Ring Road were held, now commission evaluates the offers and has to choose the contractor. Usually after that other contractors appeal which takes a month or so more until the court decides and the contract finally can be signed. After the contract is signed, the contractor has a month or so for "mobilization" of workers and machinery. So, knowing at what stage is now the tender, real construction will start probably in some 3 or 4 months, not earlier.

Very good, it is about time something happens there.- there are 4 KM of motorway missing, so when it is build it will be very good. I hope there will be direct ramps to the Ljulin motorway, maybe two laned each so it feels like a real motorway and european.

Road intersection of A5 Lyulin and the Ring Road already is built so the direct route goes to the motorway. So the main lanes of the western part of the Sofia Ring Road will be direct continuation of A5.
