Well, Ravlee, just look at the time, too, it seems to be 16 00 or later on that pic, the traffic isn´t always that low on the Struma motorway, and whenever I drove on Hungarian M5 it was pretty empty aswell, except near the Serbian border where cars wait to pass the bordercrossing but otherwise don´t tell me that the M5 is often as crowded as on the pic above.

it is definitely more crowded because Struma is not at important international corridor as M5

On the map I saw that Blagoevgrad has a bypass, will it be a part of Struma motorway ? Or it will go in other place

No, theBlagoevgrad bypass wil stay and the motorway will pass on the other side of the Struma river, that are the plans for now.

Why were you driving on the shoulder? Is this just after an accident or sth?

And I see a broken crash barrier. Radi, have you repaired it yet?

Yes, but he thinks that there isn´t any traffic on Struma judging by one pic and thinks that the Hungarian asphalt on M5 is as good as Struma motorway asphalt.

Lol,no. But this on M5 is every day,I hear it on the radio when they're talking about traffic jams...to compare a road that has a few thousand vehicles daily to one that has 30000 daily...thats what I dont like. This is what is similar in traffic IMO:



And actually,it is superior to Struma,because it was designed for 140,not 90...

The Struma motorway had 20 000 a day back in beginning 2007, now there are surely more.

because they don´t clean it and didn´t add grass to the artificially created hills, also they should have added concrete under the middle crashbarriers so that no grass can grow and beautiful stony grey gravel stays clean under the dividing crashbarriers because no grass has started to grow.

No doubt M5 is superior to Struma and has bigger traffic. Still when you said there is HUGE traffic i thought it was a lot more than 30 000 daily ... Don't know the official statistics about Struma, but Hemus [A2] here has between 15 and 20 000 daily, that's according to the latest traffic researches and that's between 1/2 and 2/3 of your M5... pretty strange.

We will see if M5 is superior to the Struma motorway, I think the first peaces of the laid asphalt back in 2005 or 2006 are already faded out are allready covered with new asphalt at some places, I´ve seen this at the Horgosh border with Serbia.

It depends on the location. There are places with 6500 vehicles, but there are also with 56000. Actually the "low" number doesnt mean anything,because if we look at "unit" vehicles,its always above 20000(except after M43 diversion,after that,barely 3-4000 unit),even 70000 near Bp. So it includes a lot of trucks. But lets cut OT,this is not about our roads.

alternative highway

It is my strong opinion tha BG should seriously concider planning a new highway
Kyustendil-Dupnitsa-Samokov-Trayanovi Vrata.

Concidering soon start of the building of h/w Kumanovo BG border, as well as soon endind of Durres - Morina h/w and its rumored connection Prizren - Tetovo, than this highway shall be more than feasible, it shall connect more than 8 mil people wuth Bulgarian Black Sea and Istanbul.
