Hey, Radi, did you know that your beloved Boyko Borisov plans to build a 2x2 national road in the Struma gorge instead of a motorway?

At least he will build anything and it is not very important to me whether it will be nationalraod or not. It is important that the motorway Dolna Dikanya Dupnica will pass several times above the current E-79 nationalroad with interesting junctions and pass over the road that goes to radmoir with a shiny bridge and they make a great looking junction where the current motorway ends. It is also important to me that the motorway will be good til Blagoevgrad and Simitli, but as long as the road is divided at the Kresna Gorge it is fine for me.

But the road through the Kresna gorge is the busiest road in Bulgaria apart from city streets. Don't you think it would be dangerous? Yes it would be grade separated and with two-level junctions, but the speed limit will be low and tight curves would remain.
Won't you go sometime to Greece on it?
Don't you think it would hinder Blagoevgrad's economical development?

No, not really, two lane road with grade seperated junctions is ok for the Kresna gorge. The rest of it will have wide emergency lanes with extremly shiny markings and shiny crashbarriers and blue reflective signs that allow for incredible visibility. so I don't care that part will not be with emergency lanes.

This is the website of the ministry of transport.

Is there also a website of the road authority where you can see planned projects, construction, etc? Much like CNADNR of Romania or NIF of Hungary.

Another question; are two-digit road numbers automatically 2nd class roads? So it's always II/11 and not I/11? Same for three-digit road numbers?

Yes, that is the meaning! A two-digit number means that the road is 2nd class. There is no numbering like I/11. Same for three-digit numbers!

The roads owned by the state are 4 classes from first to 4-th. The number of any road grades from West to East an from North to South. So does the kilometre count. The first class roads are from 1-9. All the second class roads start from first class roads. No road from any class start from motorway.

At the other side the motorway numbering in Bulgaria is pretty chaotic. There isn't any logical numbering such as in the other road - at geographic principle. Roughly the motorway numbers are historical - A1 is the oldest started and A6 is the newest one.

There are no 4-th class roads since 01.01.2005! Now they are owned by the municipalities. On the same date the vignette-payment in Bulgaria started.

My parents are now in Bulgaria and they were very happy about the roads. They said, with high speed the car would shake all the time going through Serbia and as soon as they entered Bulgaria they felt nothing except very soft and even roads were he could speed up to 180 with ease( while feeling no bumps at all til Sofia on the E-80 nationalroad. Then they entered the ringroad which was bad for a few km, but after that they entered the motorway and said it was a great driving experience since they felt nothing til Dupnica.

sorry to ask possibly inappropriate question here, but can anyone give me link with photo report or tell me in a sentence or two, about the road between Sofia and Vidin? I am planing to drive it possibly this weekend, but on a chopper bike, so it would be nice if the road is more or less decent for a hardtail motorbike as this.

I presume that the road is decent enough and nature beautiful as well, but is there anything I should know more? I see on google maps that there are two possible roads from Sofia up there, one via Svoge and another via Berkovitza, which one would be nicer in terms of tarmac, and nature/traffic frequency?

How does this Svoge - Buchin Prohod - Godech - Kalotina road look like? Anyone went there recently? Cos I might cut it there without detouring to Sofia (I'm departuring/arriving in Nish, Serbia).

many thanks!!!!!

You can check out this topic for information on road quality.
As much as i remember, the road leading to Svoge is in good condition. For rest I don't know (Buchin prohod, Godech). On both roads (through Svoge and through Berkovica) there are beautifull landscapes: the one through Svoge passes along with the gorge of the Iskar river and the other one through the "Petrohan" mountain pass.
The road leading to Kalotina is in very good condition.
