Actually that wasn't that far away in the past, because the latest cases date back to summer 2009, as far as I remember.

EDIT: I just found one more page with a lot of information about the robberies - http://www.focus-news.net/?id=h2776 ( especially the titles - "Мъж е убит при престрелка с полицията в района на Вакарел", "Агенция „Фокус” припомня:", "Магистралните грабежи, справка Агенция "Фокус" " ). A short history of the latest robberies till November 2009, without the one after that - http://dnes.dir.bg/news.php?id=5544117. Another article for the curious - http://www.24chasa.bg/Article.asp?ArticleId=315041 .

And an article from March 2011, saying that the group, accused for the robberies is acquited, because of lack of evidences - http://www.24chasa.bg/Article.asp?ArticleId=835585

All the articles are in bulgarian, but you can use Google Translator.

---------------------------

If you're not interested in reading them, this is the summary:

6 or 7 robberies in 2009;
3 robberies in 2008;
1 robbery in 2006;
1 robbery in 2005;
30 ( yes, thirty ) robberies in 2004;
more than 5 outrageous before 2004.

The targets are mainly foreigners. In late 2004 the group "The Crocodiles / Крокодилите" was caught and kept in prison ( and the number of the crimes decreased signifficantly ), but set free after a while because of lack of evidences. In April 2011 the group was acquited.

I wanted to ask if the Ljulin motorway is finished and open yet, or not yet? it would be a shame if it is still not opened, really a shame.

Does there exist a map showing average daily traffic for all roads in Bulgaria?

Croatia is in every aspect ahead of BG and RO.

The EU gives a lot of money for roads. If Croatia is ahead of BG and RO in every aspect why isn't Croatia in the EU yet? I know that your government wants to join the EU, but you can't qualify yet. There are a lot of requirements to join the EU

You've probably never been to Central & Northern Norway. You would be surprised.

Overall you are definitely right: money make good roads. Me & Botev1912 were just intrigued how is it that our two countries can't build better roads faster although we are using EU funding. I've been in your country and I admire Croatia. But friendly exposures of the facts would be always preferable to blunt and sometimes rude sentences. At least for me

I have been to central Norway and yes Norway has some crappy roads, but generally they are good if we considered how big is the country and how sparely it is populated. They don't need motorways connecting all parts of the country it is not feasible and not needed.
And i am not Croat. I am just stating obvious facts.

I know that EU gives lot of money, but it doesn't mean that non EU countries don't invest in roads.

Croatia is not in EU because of the political problems, when BG and RO considered questions like joining EU, Croatia had war on its territory simple as that.

I guess the new motorway will be very crappy, judging on the pics I have seen and I am really sorry about it. I wanted one ******* more thing to be proud off about bulgaria, but even that seems to be ******* crap. when we entered the overpasses and the roundabout, that were build new, the asphalt was very soft and not very even and was way crappier then any struma motorway or E 79 asphalt, even the new motorway part, that I was on, that replaced the old part near the struma motorway end at daskalovo felt very shitty and like awful quality. I guess I will not come to bulgaria soon, because when I come there, I want to relax and see something nice and new, and not to get in a bad mood and see, how the very very only good thing that ever has been made in Bulgaria slowly begins to age but is still in top shape. The E-79 nationalraod and the Struma motorway have such an amazing asphalt that you can drive with whatever speed you want and the car will never shake, the motorway and the nationalroad til Dupnica have the best grip I have ever felt on any motorway except very new Slovenian motorways maybe, but all other roads feel awful and look shite. but that is so typical for bulgaria. And big respect to the macedonian company Mavrovo, who helped realising 40 km of masterpiece road that the country will probably never ever see til roads will ever exist, I am extremly angry.

Markings are not yet put, Radi.

I think that the only problem of Lyulin Motorway is that it is just too far from Blagoevgrad-the spring of wellness and crashbarrier-shininess, isn't it?

emm no. And ofcourse the markings are put, should I show you a picture? Blagoevgrad is not the spring of shininess and wellness, it is probably Dupnica, with the view of the Rila mountains. It suits very well when someone sees them while drving on roads with grey brown asphalt and glowing markings and nice shiny crashbarriers.

So Radi, when does the next phaser of the Struma open? And for old times sake, can you please use the term whoreson?

I must think of it´s best definition first. -Radi Click

No, that is not possible. I have grown to a point where I stop using very nasty words, where they are not appropiate. I rethought what I aid yesterday and I think the motorway could be pretty good. It does look pretty good, has shiny crashbarriers and the green balustrade at the bridges with glass looks very well aswell. It looks a lot Slovenian, which I like as design. I just hope the asphalt will be good aswell. What annoyed me was that the roundabout has very bad markings



And that is not appriopiate for a main motorway junction at all.

For example: Burgas - Karnobat was opened a few years ago. Look at it now:



--------------------------------------

The entire reportages of the two newest motorway sections in Bulgaria are as follows:

Chirpan - Stara Zagora - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...9#post63425589
Tinypic slightly decreased the quality of the photos, so better one can be found in my site - http://mediar.hybridfire.net/photos/...8-09-2010.html

Karnobat - Burgas - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...3#post75583693

In comparison, you can visit the threads of the other countries and compare their newest motorways with ours.
The other pics of this section look pretty good though, the asphalt looks still clean and the markings and crash barriers are clean also. But for example the Struma motorway, which is new aswell does not have damaged asphalt yet. Altough it suffers extrem winters every year and is probably the motorway with the toughest conditions the materials have to endure in bulgaria. I am pretty sure about that. But it is top quality and probably as good as a croatian or Slovenian motorway, if not better.
