How is the road on the north side of Sofia ringroad. The best way is practicable?

Thanks!
The road is 2x1, medium quality surface with 3-4 traffic lights. There are a lot of cars but you might not get stuck into traffic jams(depending on your time of usage, of course).

What route is best to go around Sofia on the ring road (coming from Plevna/Pleven)?
By north or by south?
Definitely north. It carries less traffic. Moreover, the south is currently U/C at some parts so there are even bigger traffic jams.

and here are some pics my parents took with their cellphone, when returning to Germany. They are pretty good. There are pics from the Ljulin motorway and the E 80 nationalroad. The Ljulin motorway is quet nice and in fact it looks similar to the struma motorway. One difference is, that the Ljulin motorway does not have the same asphalt at the emergency lanes, shame on it.

you see the pictures in reverse order unfortunately, so the last picutre should be the first and the first one should be the last. The first pictures are from the nationalroad with new markings towards the Bulgarian- Serbian border. The other pictures are from the Ljulin motorway.

Now get off the acceleration, the motorway ends. The high buildings at the right are some buildings of Sofia.

Struma motorway[A6]/E-79 will pass through the Struma river gorge between Blagoevgrad and Kresna with a tunel 13km in length and another one 2,5km in length. This would be the longest tunnel in Bulgaria. This is necessary because the Struma river gorge is part of a protected area:


and is part of the most seismic regions in Bulgaria

Additional information:the tunnel would have two tubes 15m in diameter.

Serbia Rushes with Bulgarian Highway to Compete with Bulgarian-Romanian Bridge

June 2, 2011



Serbia is rushing with the route of Transport Corridor 10 (in orange) to compete with Corridor 4 (in dark blue).

Map by industrial-zones.com


Serbia is hurrying to build a highway to the Bulgarian border before the completion of the second Bulgarian bridge on the Danube, according to Serbian Transport Minister Milutin Mrkonjic.

In 2010-2011, Bulgaria and Serbia have stressed the need to complete the construction of the Sofia-Nis Highway, with Bulgaria taking steps to construct the 70-km section from Sofia to Kalotina on the Serbian border. The route is part of the so called Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 10 from Istanbul to Central Europe via Sofia and Belgrade.

Meanwhile, Bulgaria is also working on the vastly-delayed construction of a second bridge linking it to Romania, the so called Danube Bridge 2 at Vidin-Calafat, which is expected to finally be completed in mid 2012. The bridge is expected to boost traffic along the route of Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 4, which starts from Greece's Thessaloniki (another arm starts from Turkey's Istanbul), and via Sofia and Vidin in Bulgaria goes off to Central Europe.

Speaking on Thursday, Serbia's Transport Minister Mrkonjic has declared that the construction of the highway along Corridor 10 is extremely crucial for both Bulgaria and Serbia, the BNR reported.

Serbia hopes to complete the second between Nis and Tsaribrod (Dimitrovgrad) by the end of 2012.

The so called "railway highway" between Nis and Sofia is still in the making as well, as the Serbian section between Nis and Tsaribrod is the only part of Corridor 10 that has not been electrified; this is expected to be done with a loan from the Czech government.

"Of course, the Danube bridge at Vidin-Calafat is a competitive project, that is why we are rushing with our work," Mrkonjic is quoted as saying.

There is already important traffic from the Balkans and Turkey going through C IV in Romania, especially its north route, where one can meet more truck convoys rather than cars. Aside from the Romanian trucks, there are many Turkish, Iranian, Bulgarian trucks and the reality is that route is quite dangerous because of that. I hope once the Calafat-Vidin bridge is over, most of the Balkan truck traffic in Romania will be moved by ministry decision to Calafat-Timisoara, which has been totally upgraded and redone in the past 3-4 years for heavy traffic, including full by-passes, in expectation of the bridge. The road looks very good and traffic is still rare.


Something similar needs to be done for C IX traffic coming from Russia/Ukraine/Moldova, but that's more distant.

Right now the Romanian focus isn't exactly to build a motorway from Timişoara to Vidin. I doubt if the new bridge will really be that much competition for the Serbian corridor. The Bulgarians need to start up a project to build a Kalotina - Sofia motorway and build that northern tangent in Sofia to connect it with A1 towards Plovdiv.

Who knows?

Seriously now, we are trying to build motorways to connect eastern and western Romania through the middle of the country (Bulgaria is doing the same, as far as I know), not to build a side and expensive motorway (crossing the mountains) for the Turkish truck drivers. But in the distant future, again, who knows?

Those two project will start until 2014 at most and if they do, they have to finish until 31 May 2015 at most.

Магистрала "Хемус" ще струва 1,3 млрд. лева

http://www.standartnews.com/news/det...B5%D0%B2%D0%B0

Събота, 04 Юни 2011
Варна

1,3 млрд. лева ще струва строителството на магистрала "Хемус". Още този юни се очаква решението на Европейската комисия за включването на автомагистралата в разширената актуализирана трансевропейска пътна мрежа да влезе в Европейския парламент и Европейския съвет и да стартира процедурата за съвместно вземане на решение. Това съобщи във Варна евродепутатът Андрей Ковачев.

В момента се дискутира подготовката за отчуждаване на трасето. След 2012 г. се очаква да започне и строителството. Ковачев припомни, че решението на Европейската комисия се отнася и до 4 скоростни пътя Русе-Шумен, Варна-Дуранкулак, Пловдив-Асеновград-Рудозем и Рила, които да бъдат изградени с европейски средства.

По време на дните на Европейския парламент във Варна Асоциацията на морските капитани поиска от евродепутатите да внесат петиция в Комисията по петиции в Европейския парламент в защита на капитан Светлозар Собаджиев, който беше арестуван на 28 март в Панама. На контейнеровоза, който той управлява, чуждите власти откриха 169 килограма кока. Асоциацията на морските капитани във Варна иска промяна в статута за морските капитани - да имат имунитет срещу инкриминизиране при изпълнение на служебните задължения, а отговорност да бъде търсена на корабособствениците. В конкретния случай те настояват да бъдат защитени правата на капитан Собаджиев, който гние втори месец в панамския затвор, и ако е виновен, да бъде съден в България.

Welcome! From now on try to stick to English since this is an international thread and foreigners don't understand bulgarian.
Добре дошъл! Занапред ползвай само английски език в тази тема, тъй като е муждународна и чужденците не разбират български.

All in all guys this article says that Hemus Motorway will cost 1.3mlrd leva(650mln euro) and incorrectly states that construction will begin in 2012(it will start 2014 or later). Four other expressways Ruse-Shumen, Varna-RO border, Plovdiv-Asenovgrad-Rudozem and Rila expressway have been approved for co-financing by the EU.

Bulgaria's Struma Highway to Feature Bear Bridges, Rabbit Fences

June 8, 2011




There will bear bridges and hare fences along the Struma Highway (in black), a crucial section of Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 4.

Map by web.hit.bg

The future Struma Highway connecting Sofia to the border with Greece will be the first one in Bulgaria to feature special facilities for wild animals such as bears and hares.

Regional Development Minister Rosen Plevneliev told journalists Wednesday that Bulgaria will take after developed Western European countries such as the Netherlands in building highway facilities that protect wild animals.

He spoke at the Road Agency where he opened the bids in the tender for the construction of Lot 1 of the Struma Highway.

Plevneliev criticized a highly controversial project, a tunnel build for brown bears between Bulgaria and Greece near the Ilinden border crossing point, which was supposed to help bears cross the border freely, and was demanded especially strongly by Greek environmentalists.

The minister declared that there will be no tunnels for bears at the Struma Highway because bears did not feel comfortable in them, and that they will be replaced with bridges.

"I just found out that the bears never entered the tunnel near the Ilinden border crossing point, which we took years to build and spend BGN 50-60 M on it," Plevneliev said.

In addition to having a bear bridge over the Struma Highway, which will run through the gorge of the Struma River, the project also provides for a special "rabbit fence" with concrete foundations to keep away rabbits from the road, while also preventing them digging holes at the foundation of the fence.

A record number of bidders – 19 – have applied with offers to build Lot 1 of the Struma Highway – including companies from Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Germany, and Greece.(My note-Hungary also)

Plevneliev said the builder of Lot 1 will be selected by August, and the construction will start by September 2011. He expects an average price of EUR 3.2 M per km from the bidders.

The Lot 1 section between Dolna Dikanya and Dupnitsa is 17 km; EUR 68 M are slated for its construction from EU and state funds.

The Struma Highway starts at the Daskalovo road junction to the west of Sofia, where it will be connected with the short Lyulin Highway, and will run to the Kulata border crossing on the Bulgarian border with Greece. Some of the sections of the 156-km road are promised to be completed by the end of the Borisov Cabinet's term in 2013. A total of 19 km have been completed so far.

Lot 2 (from Dupnitsa to Simitli, 45 km) and Lot 3 (from Simitli to Sandanski, 60 km) will be harder to build because of the rough terrain, and the Borisov Cabinet has made it clear it plans to complete Lots 1 and 4 by the end of its term in 2013, and to have made progress on the other two.

The Struma Highway will be a priority for the Bulgarian government in 2011 because of the importance of the traffic and economic ties with Greece, and because it is a part of Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 4 (from Central Europe to Thessaloniki and Athens via Vidin and Sofia).

Which of the two countries has the more developed highway system? In my opinion, Singapore.
Although I don't like dick measuring, it might be motivational to know how do we rate in the region:
Motorways:
Macedonia-221km
Bulgaria-463km
Person per 1km:
Macedonia-2 114 550/221=9568 p/km
Bulgaria-7 351 234 /463=15877 p/km
Sq km per 1km:
Macedonia-25 713/221=116.34 sq.km/km
Bulgaria-110 000/463=237.58 sq.km/km
GDP per 1km:
Macedonia-19.996mlrd/221=0.09mlrd/km
Bulgaria-96.778mlrd/463=0.2mlrd/km

So we need more than ~1075km to surpass Macedonia in statistics. Good for Macedonia
