Motorways in use:

Trakia - planned total length 443, in use 280 km.
Hemus - planned total length 433, in use 151 km.
Maritsa - planned total length 117, in use 38 km.
Cherno More - planned total length 103, in use 10 km.
Struma - planned total length 156, in use 23 km.

So in use there is a total of 502 km. of Motorways.

Can't tell exact numbers about the expressways though...


And here is the plan for the route of the Northern Speed tangent, that will link the traffic from the southern part of Sofia(both Trakia and Hemus exits) with the future motorway towards Kalotina and the Serbian border.

The starting point of the drawing is here

It seems that the planned distance for Trakia includes Sofia-Kalotina. So it will be Trakia-Sofia Nortnern Speed tangent-Trakia?

Administratively there isn't such type of road as "expressway" in Bulgaria. We have some 2x2 section that are part of the major roads and the speed limit there are the same as they are at every major road - 90km/h.

Very roughly the length of 2x2 roads in Bulgaria is about 250km. The longest sections are Burgas - Sozopol - 25,8km. and Sofia - Slivnitsa 22,5km.

This sections (2x2) are build in order to release heavy traffic problem and not to be an alternative to a motorway at the same direction.
Now for the first time the Bulgarian government is thinking about some specific "speedways" instead of motorways. We are talking about Veliko Turnovo - Ruse, Ruse - Shumen, Botevgrad - Vidin etc. I hope they will think over and will build a normal motorway instead of some type of expressway!

But some of the pieces of concrete are broken (you can see those in the next to last picture and in the previous one)... they don't seem very safe

they willl replace it then
the safety and quality of this particular motorway are a top priority.
Lulin is beeing watched very closely by the national agency,the media and even by the mighty BB who inspected it a few days ago and was very dissapointed of the progress.
now they're working 24/7 on this one and I hope they meet the deadline.

A full motorway(2x2,130kmh) is planned next to this road(Slivnitsa-Sofia 2x2, SRB-Slivnitsa 2x1, both 90). It will be part of Trakia Motorway A1 that currently starts from Tsarigradsko shose boulevard in the EASTERN part of the city going east to Plovdiv. It will be extensively used by gasterbaiters. It will be part of a branch of corridor X towards Istanbul and Asia.
