So, why you don't keep your hater comments for yourself? It is obvious on that picture, that this is because of the emergency teams.
Yes, he probably is a villageboy, living somewhere in the deepest Slovenian valley with highest surroundings and therefore is that nationalsocialistic to post hater coments on all Bulgariam motorways or on any motorway that is not Slovenian and probably Austrain. He might be a patriot of Austrai sswell, since it is the neighbouring country and a lot of slovenian towns have austrain names aswell.

[envirowhacko-mode]that's because all the traffic, everything dies near a high-capacity road[/envirowhacko-mode]

Lack of rain I suppose, especially coined with the recent construction, which leaves little water.

Hi,
I will have some Romanian friends visiting me and they will travel with car to Plovdiv and they are asking for directions. From what I've been told the fastest road is from Ruse to Gurkovo through Pass of the Republic. Then from Gurkovo you drive to Kazanluk and detour to Tulovo from Maglizh. Then from Tulovo you enter the main road from Kazanluk to Stara Zagora and from Stara Zagora you go on the highway to Plovdiv. If this is the correct and fastest route can you also tell me if it would be hard for a foreigner to follow (road signs etc.).

Yes, that is the best route! About the question if a foreigner could follow it - well it depends on him/her! It's true that BG roads/motorways aren't very well signed, but that route is not so bad!

I am also from Romania and have followed the above route several times. I confirm it is the best one, roads are ok, and there shouldn't be any problem with signs. The only confusing place is at Maglizh, there you have only Tulovo signed, not also Stara Zagora. But even if they miss the shortcut, they still can go to Stara Zagora on the main road.

Today construction works start at a 8.5 km long section of A2 Hemus motorway!

Quote:
The length of the motorways in Bulgaria is as folowing:

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

Did construction on A6 Dolna Dikanya - Dupnica already commence? I thought it was to start in September 2011.

A3 motorway

A3 near Kapitan Andreevo through time. As you probably know, it was opened to traffic in 2007, and subsequently shut down again due to inferior quality. It's now been repaved.

2003: no motorway


2008: completed motorway


2010: motorway repaving:


Thanks for Google Earth for making these comparisons possible, they released some new imagery of Bulgaria on September 21st.

@ChrisZwolle, that section must be between Harmanli and Lyubimetz, which had been opened without its final surface course. The "repaving" was actually "finishing" of that section 4 years after its first oppening!

Here the result posted by @mediar:

No, the imagery I posted is east of Svilengrad, literally 1 kilometer before it terminates at I/8.

OK you are right about the location I've just checked it up in GE. But it seems like the terms of the construction works are similar like Harmanli-Lyubimetz section! Hope the same won't happen there near Svilengrad!

Tehre msut be a special color for raods with incredible road quality, only few sections must own it. For example the Struma motorway, Ljulin motorway, E-79 nationalroad til Dupnica, E-79 nationalraod Dupnica - Dzherman, E79 nationalroad Kucherinovo Blagoevgrad, E-79 nationalroad Kresna Sansdanski, E-80 nationalroad Kalotina Dragoman (the part til Sofia is green IMO cause it is 2 X 2 without divider) Kyustendil Nevestino. Simitli - Bansko Yeah that are the roads IMo that deserve a special forth color for Astral road quality. There might be others aswell.

Oh, I see your point! All the roads around Blagoevgrad are with extraordinary quality!

btw: E80 between Slivnitza and Sofia is in format 2x2 (instead 2x4 or 4x4)
