Even the names of the roads in that particular direction are very inspiring and may be written on signs: Lyulin and (of course) Struma.

That's 2X3, not 2X2.

Yes, sorry, 2x3. How much of the ring does it cover percentagewise?

The Bucharest ring is 1x1 mostly and the traffic is awful because of that!

Only now there are extension works for 2x2 which will be completed this fall for about only 1/4 of the ring.

Less than 5 km (with one interruption) from the southern part and about 6-7 km (with 1 interruption) from the north-eastern part.

OK. Thank you.

So, the plan is to complete the Sofia ring (about 60 km long I understand) with such expressway at 2x3? Are they working on it now?

Northern arc will be part of the transite motorways system - connection between Sofia-Kulata (Greek border - Motorways Lulin/Struma), Sofia-Kalotina (Serbian border), Sofia-Varna (Motorway Hemus) and Sofia-Plovdiv-Burgas/Svilengrad (Motorways Thrakia/Maritsa). It will be completed after 2013.

Southern arc will be urban expressway. At the moment they are working only on the intersection point with Sofia-Dragalevtsi-Mt Vitosha.



ORANGE = Northern transite arc
WHITE = Southern urban expressway
GREEN = 2*3 lanes in use

Blue is the new green, it's all about fashion around this region. The pics are cool but someone gotta clean up this jungle growing around the crashbarriers, it hides their awesome shininess.
