It's the 23km section b/n Kresna and Sandanski, isn't it?
That's correct.

Do you think this is going to be a good alternative route to Macedonian A1 towards Thessaloniki? The difference in length will be about 20 kilometers, and Greeks seem to put more emphasis on A25 to BG border than on A1 to MK border.

The route through Macedonia is shorter, and the one through Bulgaria has the advantage of not leaving the EU borders. Struma motorway also serves the direction to Romania.

The counters on I-category roads and motorways were installed later.

What does the second column mean? How much cars drove in that year?

The last idea for a second carriageway, bypassing the Kresna Gorge.

SOFIA (Bulgaria), August 23 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria has received 11 bids in a tender for the construction of a 9.3 km motorway section, estimated at 80 million levs ($46.3 million/41 million euro), the country's road infrastructure agency said on Tuesday.

The stretch, which starts near the town of Yablanica, is the first out of four planned sections for the extension of Hemus motorway, which should link the capital of Sofia and the Black Sea city of Varna. The other three sections will have a length of 15-17 km each.

The 9.3 km stretch should be built within 910 days, the agency said in a statement.

Last week, the road agency said that Bulgaria is completing the preparation of the documents for the launch of tender for the construction of the second section with a length of 16.5 km.

In February, Bulgaria terminated tender for the construction of a 60 km stretch of the highway, divided in two sections, amid suspected irregularities regarding the transparency of the selection process and the spending of state funds. The total cost of the contract was 756.8 million levs, and the regional development ministry claimed it was unable to ensure EU funding to pay for it.

The planned length of the whole Hemus motorway, part of which is operational, is 433 km.

What's the reason the Sofia - Burgas motorway got prioritised ahead of the Sofia - Varna one? Was the old Burgas road in a much worse shape than what exists today between Schumen and outside Sofia?

Because Orient\East Med. corridor was drawn to pass along the future at that time A1 highway (towards Burgas) and also because the end point of this highway then was closer to the Black Sea. Another reason was that the terrain for A1 was not so demanding and consequently less amount of money would be given by EC. Last but not least, it was not clear how A2 highway (towards Varna) would go further east. This was a mistake because it made as a result a huge part of the infrastructure in Northern Bulgaria pending. In my humble opinion, a much more wiser and balanced solution of the EU TEN-T corridor towards Burgas in particular was a route like on the map below. In such a case Vidin-Burgas will be shortened by 50 kilometers making use of part of A2 despite the more undulating terrain it will traverse.

Thanks for those details.
It is unfortunate that there have seen so many delays on the Hemus motorway.

It is a matter of making compromises and managing resources well, otherwise tension is created when one unit is more favoured than the other.

Do we still expect an opening in late 2019 although construction works began a little bit later than announced?

I cannot find the exact date for the completion. The term of the contract is 1280 days, but as it's a design&build contract I suppose that the term includes the time for the design works, which are completed already. If we take out 3 months for design, then we have 3 years and 3 months for construction, starting from August, 30. I not sure how exactly the term is calculated.
