Actually, you are not right. The south section in Bulgaria of C-IV Sofia-Thessaloniki is well established. It would become the busiest motorway in Bulgaria when build.

Does anyone know the status of the A1 between Stara Zagora and Karnobat?

As far as I know it will be constructed in 3 sections. Are all already under construction? Which interchanges are planned? When will each section be completed?

Is there any government website which has up-to-date information about new road construction (in Bulgarian)?

Since last summer all three sections are under construction. The first section (Stara Zagora-Nova Zagora) is completed at more than 30%, the two others (Nova Zagora-Yambol and Yambol-Karnobat) are at ~20-25%(march 2011). They will all be completed until july-august 2012.
You can see the plans of intersections with main roads at wikimapia:
http://wikimapia.org/#lat=42.3960797...7&z=10&l=2&m=b
you can check out the road agency website http://api.government.bg and http://stroitelstvo.info/infrastructure/ for news about bulgarian infrastructure.

Thanks! Do you know if exits are numbered in Bulgaria, and if they are, if they are distance-based or sequentially numbered?

I haven't seen numbered exits in Europe. They don't exist in Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy and Spain. I haven't seen any in those countries. Are there any?

Spain, Slovenia and Croatia have exit numbers, though Slovenia hasn't rolled them out fully yet AFAIK.

I was there last summer. In Croatia there was only the sign Izlaz and no number. In Italy there was only the name of the city. I even drove in Spain and didn't see any numbers. It doesn't say exit 179 for example like here in the US

None, but 19km ( Ljulin motorway ) are going to be opened on 15th May. Another 100+ km are going to be completed in the next summer ( 2012 ). I'm talking only about projects, build with EU money.

no thanks. That's why I haven't noticed them. They don't look like exit numbers. I thought they were like road numbers or something. I am used to the US system. Those are the US exits


Can anyone move this and the post above (with the pictures unrelated to Bulgarian Highways) to the thread highways EU vs USA.
