A very good modern motorway! I have to agree good scenery in the background in some of the pics. Is there any major viaducts or cut and cover tunnels designed on any part of it?

Did I hear right that its length is only just over 20km?

Nice pics.

There don't seem to be reflectors on the sections without barriers?

It's Struma, it doesn't need any viaducts or tunnels to add more value.

Anyway, the stretch is just 19 km long. In fact, part of the planned route passes trough a very mountainous and picturesque terrain where there will be tunnels. No construction kick off date though.

EC to release funding for Bulgaria’s Lyulin motorway





The European Commission is expected to announce on May 12 a decision to unfreeze 115 million euro under the Ispa pre-accession aid programme, allocated for the construction of Lyulin motorway near Sofia and technical support for the preparation of road projects, the Government’s press office said.

EC blocked the money on July 23 2008, following revelations about a conflict of interest and fraud at the National Road Infrastructure Fund (NRIF), which was later on restructured into an agency controlled directly by the Cabinet.

Moreover, the EC forced Bulgaria to pass a conflict of interest law and amend its public procurement legislation.

Sofia imposed a financial sanction of 652 000 euro and carried out several audits at the roads agency, giving the EC grounds to renew the financing.

Meanwhile, the Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister in charge of EU Funds, Meglena Plugchieva, and experts of the roads agency checked the ongoing renovation of the Sokolovtsi – Smolyan – Srednogortsi road, which is financed with 10.6 million euro under the Phare pre-accession programme of the European Union.

An audit by KPMG identified a possible conflict of interest at the contractor, Entechnos, which comprises Greek companies Entechnos and Actis as well as Bulgarian firm Avtomagistrali-Cherno More. One of the managers of Entechnos is the father of former NRIF head Atanas Dimov.

There's also a village called Bosna in North-eastern Bulgaria. Kosovo exists too.

"Srbija" should be near; Kosovo can't be independent.

No Srbija in Bulgaria

But we've got a town and a village called Trstenik just like on Peljesac peninsula in Croatia

You know the city of Lille in France? The Belgians say "Rijsel" in Dutch. However, they have a town called "Lille" themselves too... Why translate it if you already have such a town in your own language?

Similar to Aachen, the Dutch call it "Aken". Funnily enough, there's also an "Aken" elsewhere in Germany.

Dangerous at night, especially if the road markings are not reflective or insufficient either.
