It depends on the point of view. I'm in a way glad it did before entering Sofia, 'cause looking to the right just before the ring road, it's not a real pretty sight right now.

Tell me about it. One of the ugliest views in the whole Sofia valley They promote their "chalga" music pretty loud btw, with huge woofers right next to the road. So, the music in this video is a kind of response

Because ground is too floppy and too thin?

I think it has something to do with nature and welfare protection etc.
They just wanted to build it the cheapest possible way, while still observing the environmental rules.

Finally Trakia's case seem to be closing to a happy end


Quote:
Bulgaria Gives Go-Ahead to Trakiya Motorway Last Section

Bulgaria's prime minister will launch the construction works of the last section of Trakiya highway, linking the city of Yambol and the town of Karnobat, with a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday.

The Bulgarian Road Infrastructure picked "Holding Roads" as winner in the tender for building of the 49km section of Trakiya Highway, also known as Lot 4.

The offer of the Bulgarian company is BGN 174,705,600 M, VAT excluded.

Bulgaria's tie-in "Unified Highway Trace" won the tender for the construction of the 32-kilometer-long section of the Trakiya, linking the city of Stara Zagora and the town ofNova Zagora, at the end of February and a month later signed a contract with the Bulgarian Road Infrastructure Agency.

The Bulgarian consortium submitted the lowest bid - BGN 137,86 M – in competition with three other approved applicants. 4 000 jobs will be created by the project in the Stara Zagora region.

Construction works are scheduled to be completed in 25 months. The price of the construction is estimated at about BGN 138 M, 30-35 % of the funds will be made available by the end of the year.

Greece's Aktor placed the lowest price offer of EUR 111.6 M in a tender for the construction of 35.7 kilometres of Bulgaria's Trakiya motorway, that would link the towns of Nova Zagora and Yambol, in southern Bulgaria.

Though still under construction Trakiya is the Bulgarian highway project which is closest to completion. It will connect the capital Sofia with the Black Sea city of Burgas. A total of 328 km of the 443-km highway have already been built.

So, atm we had 31.8 km (LOT 2) + 35.7 km (LOT 3) + 47.7 km (LOT 4) = 115.2 km U/C on Trakia Motorway and 19 km on Lulin Motorway. Thats 134 km in total.

And there will be officially opened 31 km of Mariza Motorway after 12 days.

I think its gr8.

i saw different figures about Trakiya motorway:

443 total lenght (planned)/ 328 in use; 115 u/c

but Sofia- stara zagora section has 208 km lenght
karnobat- burgas is 35.2 km
among them is this missing section of 115 km actually u/c (lot 1-3)
looking on the map i can see an extension of this motorway to the serbian border (forecasted) which can not be longer than 40 km

so if add we reach 358km total lenght (plus maybe 40 to the serbian border) from which 243 km are in use and 115 u/c.

So where is the difference to 443km total lenght planned; 328 km in use?

******* chalga music should not be allowed, European people are arriving there and are not interestred in ******* chalga music. New roads are being built to please Europeans and Bulgarians ofcourse, that feel awesome when driving and look great and Chalga does not fit at all. If I had a very loud soundsystem I would play my goa trance as loud as possible and show signs to the Chalga losers, who should not be tollerated.

Could you please tell me if you have any idea about a future plan for a motorway linking your cities Botevgrad and Vidin? I know that section is part of the fourth pan European transportation corridor-its southern branch. I'm asking you guys, because I took a glimpse on your map showing the actual and planed/future motorways of Bulgaria and saw all but none project of such kind in the foreseeable future. I think it is a natural question since our Bulgarian neighbors fought a long battle for the Vidin-Calafat bridge and managed in the end to convince the Romanian side to place the bridge there as it is a major link to Europe for our neighbors.
As I notice, it is easier for you to link Sofia with the Serbia -A1.
anticipated thanx

Yesterday I went to the uber futuristic looking Mc'Donalds with speakers inside and outside the building and many many other very modern looking things. You can look and touch the quality Struma Motorway, it's crashbarriers and kiss it's beautiful asphalt. I have a few pics of the construction of the Ljulin Motorway aswell.


The beautiful Struma Motorway asphalt, here you can see that it has a lot of stones which is very good because it shows that the asphalt is very stable. We went there with a Fiat Coupe with hard suspension and could still feel nothing, altough driving with high speed, and that after 4 years!!!







Unfortunately I don't have a lot of pics of the Struma motorway, the great Mc'Donalds and the new E-79 nationalroad because I did not take the camera with me, but soon I will go there again and will take pics of it.

I would not kiss any asphalt except the asphalt of the Struma motorway and E-79 nationalroad Dupnica - Dolna Dykania, because these roads are the smoothest and most even roads in Bulgaria, people with the worst suspension can speed on these roads without feeling anythng.
