Highways of Bulgaria remind me of the highways of Morocco.

You mean the design (signs, crash barriers, generall look) or the landscape?

Well Morocco's highways pretty much looks like France's highways.

2. Vidin-Montana expressway
3. Hemus motrway[A2] Yablanitsa-east - Lovech
4. E-79(expressway?) Mezdra-Botevgrad
5. Shipka tunnel on I-5


List of projects that will be financed under the OP "CEF" in 2014-20:
1. Improvement of sailing on Danube river(Batin-Belene mainly). I wonder if our northen neighbours are ready with papers on this project.
2. Vidin - Medkovets railway
3. Sofia - Dragoman railway

4. SRB border - Kalotina - Sofia motorway
There is a major shift in transport strategy and the plans for its financing and prioritization:
OP "Transport" road projects will be financed 50:50 while railway and water projects will remain at a 15:85 ratio. The priorities now are:
1. Struma motorway[A3] lot 3 Blagoevgrad - Sandanski. Hopefully, including the 15km tunnel. Now only time is an issue.
2. Hemus motorway[A2] Yablanitsa-east - Shumen. Design projects not ready, but they might go for design&built tenders.
3. Shipka tunnel on I-5

Sofia-SRB border motorway[A?] is dropped from CEF. It will be financed from EBRD, EIB and WB loans.

Is there more info on the 'Shipka Tunnel'? Length, double or single tube, cost, etc?

Length: 3.22km
Access roads: new 1x2 roads; no plans for expansion to 2x2; Gabrovo and Kazanlak bypasses were/are/to be built/reconstructed
Number of tubes: only one; 1x2; no plans for adding a second one
Cost: 150mln euro
Risks for project: ecological opposition because it will go through national park
Stage: design stage

IMO: I-5 should become a motorway with a longer tunnel that will reduce impact of the road on the ecosystem there

Why do I have a feeling that Kalafat - Vidin bridge severely loses it's potential cos there's no secured financing of any good link from it to major corridors in Bulgaria until 2020. If we take into account that Kalotina - Sofia motorway gets completed in that timeframe, which is more or less not so expensive project after all, there will definitely be no sense for any transit commuters using Vidin-Kalafat bridge, as much as it's current situation. Can someone enlighted me why Bulgaria doesn't force that Vidin - Montana - Botevgrad link cos it's the only way to use the new bridge at the full potential, and possibly pay it back with Europe - Turkey commuters possibly switching on it

The explanation could be the lack of enough funds. The estimated costs for the priority projects are as follows: lot 3 of Struma motorway - 850 M euro (tunnels!); Hemus motorway (Yablanitsa-Belokopitovo| - 780 M; Shipka tunnel - 150 M. Total 1.78 billion euro.

The good news are that the national cofinancing probably would be raised up to 50% and, thus, some ~1.2-1.3 billion euro will be available for construction of new motorways. Still, even these money may not be enough.
