The camera is shaking a lot more than on my videos, which means the Trakya motorway is way more uneven than the great roads to Sofia. That's my comment on the video, and don't expect a lot more comments, because the selfish people here only care of what they like and are absolutely closeminded patriots and oldfashioned. That's why most videos and pictures do not get commented, because noone cares but only cares how the road in his country is and noone likes to see when people like their roads here. Always bad responses.

Thanks for the comments. Note that this part of this highway was last repaired 10-15 years ago. So, yes it is more bumpy than the 4-year old Struma on your videos.

The music volume is really too low. I didn't realize this until I played the video at home. Anyway, you can always play other music while watching.

Exactly what I did. I used Monochronic - We Love Deep, a nice progressive set.

PS: the music, used by radi in his video is nice, I like listening to Trance and Ambient.

Well, let's say 8-10 years ago. But it's still descent section to drive.

Just to precise for non Bulgarian users that the film was taken between Sofia and Ihtiman at A1 - Trakiya.

Very cool pictures! I see there is some work on the viaduct on the Romanian side of the Danube. This is a good update. We don't get too many pics from the yard on the Romanian side.

As you can see, there is a "FCC Construction S.A." watermark at the bottom left edge of each photo, and that's the company that does the construction of the bridge. And these are the official photos from the company's site of this project - http://www.danubebridge2.com/

Poor ferries there when its finished, I remember paying around 40 euro for a normal passenger vehicle year ago. Are they going to make the bridge tolled?

Hello,
I plan to travel from Russe to Veliko Tarnovo via E85. Do you have any ideea if that detour near Byala is still used, due some road works?

Yeah, we know, thanks to Turnovec. On the Romanian side we don't have the chance of an official website for the adjoining infrastructure. The Spaniard joint-venture Azvi-Vimac is as secretive as the former Romanian secret police, Securitate.

The bridge will be tolled. You can see on the map the toll station on the Romanian side.

If you look closely, there are two overpasses: one is for DN56 (the existing National Route Craiova-Calafat), which will overpass the motorway coming from the bridge - first blue arrow on the map, and the second is an overpass over the Calafat-Craiova railway - the other blue arrow on the map:

According to data on the National road agency the road near Byala is closed. The detour is by roads 5402 trough Obretenik to Tsenovo. From Tsenovo to Byala by road 54. Here is a map of that roads:

You should not have problems cus this detour will be well marked and you should simply follow the main traffic stream.

Bulgarian Construction Co Wins Bid for Sofia Beltway

Bulgarian Construction Co Wins Bid for Sofia Beltway: Bulgarian Construction Co Wins Bid for Sofia Beltway

Bulgaria's top construction company "Glavbolgarstroy" will continue to build the southern loop of Sofia's beltway.

The company's bid for the 2.14-km section between the "Simeonovsko Shosse" boulevard and the "Mladost 4" district was the lowest among a total of 11 offers.

"Glavbolgarstroy" is prepared to build the road for BGN 37 000 B without Value Added Tax (VAT), which is 35% less than the estimated price of BGN 56 M without VAT of the State Road Agency.

Out of the 11 bidders, 5 made it to the final round. The Austrian "Alpine Bau" was the only foreign finalist.

The second lowest bid belongs to the consortium between "Trace Holding," SK 13, "Balknastroy," and "Stanilov" – BGN 40.5 M.

The project is financed by the EU operational program Regional Development.

Nice project. It seems like a missing link between the multilane sections. However, I wonder how and when they will widen the southwestern part of the ring road. It runs through a densely populated area, and shifting the ring road outside the city is not possible due to the Vitosha Mountains.
