Let's make a comparison between Bulgaria and Romania:

Motorways:
Romania-372km
Bulgaria-463km

Person per 1km:
Romania-21 466 174/372=57705 p/km
Bulgaria-7 351 234 /463=15877 p/km.

Sq km per 1km:
Romania-238 391/372=640.83 sq.km/km
Bulgaria-110 000/463=237.58 sq.km/km

GDP per 1km:
Romania-$254.16B/372=0.68 billion USD/km
Bulgaria-$96.778B/463=0.2 billion USD/km

All data except the GDP figures is from wikipedia
I took the GDP figures from economywatch.com as I'm quite confident you did too

See, sometimes the glass could be half-full

But there is no need to say that the romanian motorways are much better that ours.

Well, they need to have incredible roads, in order to be better then the e-79 and the Struma motorway, and the Ljulin motorway probably, don#t know how it is, but on videos the camera doesn't shake. also the E-80 nationalroad is very good, especially the two laned part which is very smooth and even, the four laned part is very good aswell, now with new markings. if romania has better roads then these, big respect.

I have driven on new Romanian roads and they were pretty good, looked good and felt smooth, but they were not better as some Bulgarian roads, especially the 60 km towards Greece. Noone will even try to recreate them cause they are smooth masterpieces.

Yes, of course. At the moment I remember any, but I'm sure there are. Somewhere.

openstreetmap.org usually gets updated quickly after a new road is open for traffic. You can even see the future path of the northern speed tangent, trakia and maritsa highway at lower zoom levels.

Romania vs. Bulgaria: Who's better? In fact, who is the Radi of Romania?

Guys, are you f***ing serious about the RO vs BG thingy?! Come on, let's grow up and have a beer. Or soda.

Agreed. Both countries have a lot to look forward to with regard to better highways.

I want that in future years to go from Bucharest-Sofia- Thessaloniki only on the highway. I'm adepts highways, to just go with the car on the highway.
We made ​​a simulation on GPS Bucharest-London route. Of the 2,600 km of highway route was 2000 km.

I guess in the next 30 years or more that will be done. but maybe cars will be removed and only public transport be tolerated til then, cause cars need a lot of ressources, or cars wil finally use other energy to move.

Hi, the section of road 55 between Gurkovo and Nova Zagora is not rehabilitated yet. There are ca. 20-25 km wich are even still with pavement, but the rest of the 55 is OK. However I would recommend either the route V.Tarnovo-Gabrovo-St.Zagora or V.Tarnovo-Gurkovo-Maglizh-St.Zagora and from there - on the road 5!

It's not about Bulgaria vs Romania or Bulgaria vs Macedonia. Just trying to make a point that despite having hundreds of kilometers of highways with hundreds more under construction and for the first time ever having a leadership that plays by the rules with all new tenders, somehow there's that negative view that Bulgaria is worse off than everyone else. A lack of self esteem that's completely unjustified in my opinion.

In my opinion, having a government that plays by the rules with the new tenders (and is generally not corrupt) is more important than the present condition of the highways.
