It's about the same as the first half year of operation. It seems that the new link was discovered fairly quickly.

These periods are too short to compare.

The first half year of operation saw 280,000 vehicles, or 1500 per day.
The first two years of operation saw 1,100,000 vehicles, or 1500 per day.

Well, it does say more than 1.1 million Also from the article

Quote:
Some 1700-1800 cars cross Danube Bridge 2 on a daily basis
I definitely do not believe that the traffic has remained steady compared to the first months of operations based on the constant reports of jams around the bridge which didn't occur back in 2013.

Here are the official statistics.

2013 average weekly traffic - 8392 vehicles
2014 average weekly traffic - 10975 vehicles

2015 weekly is already higher every week so far than the 2014 average.

You can see the full statistics here:

Well a few might be misleading but when you have them all, the picture becomes clear:

As you can see traffic is constantly on the rise.

Much better data

Strange that those news reports understate the traffic volumes. There were several reports over the first half year of operation, and the first two years of operation that showed the same average traffic volume of 1500 vehicles per day.

I believe the forecasted volume is 3000 vehicles per day.

The minister of transport in 2012:

Danube Bridge 2 is estimated to service traffic totalling 100,000 vehicles during its first year, after which the quantities are expected to increase.

A3 Struma motorway, lot 4

@the border. This 1km segment will be widened with 1 or 2 lanes, but the upgrade will not be to a motorway status.

Let me help you. RIA is planning to widen the section(~1.5km) between the end of Struma motorway[A3] and the border checkpoint from 1x2 to 1+2(2 lanes in direction GR).

Many numbers circulated in the media - 100 000 v/y, 400 000 v/y, 415 000 v/y and 500 000 v/y.

Are there any figures of the ferry traffic in the region? I suppose ferry usage went down at Oryahovo and possibly Nikopol as well.

The ferry at Vidin was closed and ferries at Nikopol and Oryahovo reduced prices ~20% and number of trips.

400 trucks at Oryahovo before bridge opening. source(bg)
Oryahovo ferry income decreased 4 times and traffic down to 20%. source(in bg)

There is a possible explanation I fear most (if the statistics is based on how many tickets were paid by drivers):
- some trucks do not pay (legally) the tax and are not counted

A2 Hemus motorway, @Belokopitovo

Тъй като не си заслужава да ги коментирам ще си позволя да пусна няколко, макар и твърде семпли снимки от участъка при с. Белокопитово направени днес. Ще се опитам да компенсирам скромния снимков материал с повече коментар.

Общ изглед към ПВ Белокопитово откъм етапната връзка с главен път І-4. В дясно се вижда функциониращият вече изход от І-4 (етапната връзка) към І-2 в посока Шумен. В ляво е временно функциониралата, но сега затворена, заради новата временна организация за движение, връзка от І-2 към І-4 в направление Шумен - Търговище.




Почти завършеният надлез на магистралата над асфалтираното и въведено в експлоатация западно платно на бъдещият СП Русе - Шумен. Зад него по-скоро не се вижда, че надлеза на магистралата над източното, незавършено платно на скоростния път е на етап полагане на бетон за ригелите. Устоите са готови.


Отново изхода от етапната връзка към І-2 в посока Шумен


ССП в най-изостаналия участък на Лот-а, в близост до приключената археология. Мисля, че е ясно какво и колко трябва да се случи на мястото на фургона.




На това място, непосредствено вдясно от горния ССП бяха разкопките.

The 15 July deadline, announced by the minister, seems impossible. According to this post by Shoumenec, end of August is the earliest possible for completion of this section.

In this line of discussion - 22.06.2015 - 28.06.2015 is a record week for the New Europe Bridge

Overview for Bulgarian highways?

The Polish highway thread has a nice overview on its first page (showthread.php?t=441854). I'm missing similar overviews for the other countries. It's not necessary to draw the map, the textual form can be good enough.

For example, the post by Gubot (showthread.php?t=473858&page=326) is a good overview. Chris has created the first post (showthread.php?t=473858), if you can edit it and copy aor link such a post, the current state would be immediately seen.

What do you think about this map from wikipedia? As long as we all agree we could ask ChrisZwolle if he would be kind enough to add it to the first post of the tread.
