The length of the motorways in Bulgaria is as folowing:

The first 3 km. of Maritsa are common with Trakiya motorway.

It seems Radi's infatuation with crash-barriers is shared by the Bulgarian prime-minister:

"The Prime Minister called motorists who are going to use the motorway not to break the crash-barriers. “I would like to ask you not to break the crash-barriers, because there is no undamaged crash-barrier left in Sofia”, he said."

LOL, that's where crash barriers are for. Or does the prime minister think his fellow Bulgarians like to damage their cars for fun?

No, they damage their cars, because they just can drive cars. Just look at this picture and the crash barriers of the motorway:



And here as well:



Is that normal?

@ChrisZwolle,
I guess you don't know well the culture of the countries like Romania (I speak for my country) after falling of comunism:
- there are a lot of Romanians who, during comunism, were not able to by an old fashion Dacia 1300 (a derivation from Renault 12 in the 70's)
- in 1990 - 2000 the former socialist economies collapsed and people bought old Dacia and old second hand cars from West.
- between 2004 - 2008 there was a strong economic growth in the region which allowed people to by modern car, the cheapest.
Now, with an old Dacia you were obliged by the car to drive less than 100km/h because of the fuel consumption, engine power and reparations.
With the new cars and the few km of highways that Romania has, there is a sentiment of
parvenitism of many Romanians in driving at high speeds (150 - 170 km/h) and using the flashing lights in order to get other drivers out from their lane.

really awesome video there. The motorway overall seems very nice, the camera is not shaking at all, except some place, i guess it is very smooth. i am just wondering why the markings are a bit faded at the emergency lanes at the beginning. The best thing is, that at the end the good old Struma motorway starts. The music playing is nice, but unfortunately fades away at the end. i wish they had recorded the first kilometers of the struma motorway aswell.

You mean the small bends in the zoom photos? That's quite normal. Not every crash barrier encounter requires a repair, only if it loses it structural integrity or function.

Here you can see it on a 20-year old motorway in the Netherlands.

but i don't understand why the speedlimit so often is 70. What is going on with them. At a few places it is 100, but more of the motroway is with speedlimit 70. I hope there is something wrong with it and they will add a proprer speedlimit of 120. people want to use the 40 km long motorway as a racing track and not drive slowly there. They should really remove it.

Those are 70 km/h speed limits in winter conditions on bridges. Probably because they can get icy and the motorway is basically one long grade.

How you know they are in winter only? there must be an indication for that they are only in winter.

Otherwise it must be a great experience. first the long Ljulin motorway. Then the Struma motorway, then the E-79 nationalroad. It is not possible for cars and buses to break their vehicles anymore on the whole lengh sofia Kulata.
