You probably don't want to hear my opinion.
Last time I complained about safety deficiencies of tunnels I was considered a racistic villageboy ...

What happened to shiny white thermoplastic markings on Struma (after min 14:00)? They don't look very strumatic ...

Otherwise very nice surroundings.

Yes, they need to be renwed, but only at some places and that is cause the motorway is enduring a lot of winters and at the other time a lot of sand. The other markings are very white indeet, also all markings of the new E-79.

The markings will be renewed next year when all of the construction papers are put in order.

I thought markings are painted new every year. That would be normal.

Not on Struma because this highway lacks the needed construction papers. They will change some things on it to be legalized and that's why they don't repaint it now.

The motorway has not be repainted since it is built. But you don't realzie that on the motorway there are thick thermoplastic markings and they only got viped out cause of heavy winters and a lot of dust on the motorway. Do you know how the motorway looked one winter when it wa not cleaned, when the careless government was ruling the country? It was frozen and there was ice and snow on the motorway, a thick layer of snow that forced people to drive 40 km only, it was a very heavy winter though. Do you think such things do not harm the motorway markings? And most of the markings are there still.

I hope very much tough that the markings will be repainted at that one place vey soon, since it is very dangerous to drive at that place.

E-79 nationalroad til Sandanski. The new part is still high quality looking, the rest is normal road.
Just look at this Video at 30:05, just look what happens, 10 years old asphalt and how it looks, I guess except the new part til Dupnica that is a masterpeace for Bulgaria aswell, the asphalt there.



AND LOOK AT 34 27, THE DEEP BLACK ASPHALT TURNS TO A FINAL BLACK ASPHALT, THAT IS PROBABLY THE DARKEST ASPHALT IN BULGARIA AND DARKER THEN NEW ASPHALT THAT IS BEING LAID RIGHT NOW, IT IS JUST INCREDIBLE, ONLY HUNGARY AND SLOVENIA HAVE ASPHALT THAT LOOKS AS NICE, ALTOUGH NOT AS BLACK THOUGH; THE SHADOWS CAN HARDLY BE SEEN, THAT BLACK IS THE ASPHALT, THE CONTRAST OF GLOWING THERMOPLAST MARKINGS AND THE ASPHALT ARE EVEN EYETIERING; THAT BIG IS THE CONTRAST

On this pic it can clearly be seen that Bulgaria uses thermoplast markings, you can see that a small peace is broken just like a thermoplast marking would break, not just dissapeared as color does.

Maritsa (A3)
There are two parts:
Plodovitovo intersection - Road II-66 5,000km.
Harmanli - Svilengrad (from km.72+940 till km 99+820 & from km. 108+510 till km 111+980) 30,350km.
Total: 35,130 km.

The first 3 km. of Maritsa are common with Trakiya motorway.
The section between km. 89+600 till km. 108+510 has one carriageway only, so it is not a motorway.
1 km.

The Motorway sections under construction in Bulgaria are:

Maritsa motorway (A3):
Three sections:
LOT 1 from Chirpan to Dimitrovgrad 31.4km. (from km5+000 till km36+400)
LOT 2 from Dimitrovgrad to Harmanli 34.22km. (from km36+400 till km 70+620)
From Generalovo till Turkish border 5,365km. (from km111+980 till km117+345,10).
both LOTs have to be completed by August 2013
All under construction at Maritsa 70,985km
2 sections are unclear for me, so to sum up:
0,000-5,000 In operation
5,000-36,400 Construction
36,400-70,620 Construction
70,620-72,940 ????
72,940-89,600 In operation
89,600-99,820 In operation, but single or dual carrigeway???
99,820-108,510 Single carrigeway
108,510-111,980 In operation
111,980-117,345 Construction

108,510-111,980 In operation
111,980-117,345 Construction
It's a mess really...
As far as I know:

70,620-72,940 - no information
72,940-89,600 + 89,600-99,820 - OPENED last year at once so it is in operation -> source
99,820-108,510 - They are building the other carrigeway

So functional at this time are two parts of the highway: first part from km 72,940 until km 99,820 (then you have only left carrigeway from km 99,820 until km 108,510, which is being built) and second part from km 108,510 until km 111,980.
From km 111,980 until km 117,345 you have construction but this part is devided into two parts - the one from 111,980 until km ~114 is almost done but the other part is in the beginning of the construction which is the border actually (Kapitan Andreevo).

As for the beginning of the highway, only km 0,000 to km 1,500 are actually build as part of Trakia and I don't know about km 1,500 to km 5,000. Then you have the two Lots (Lot 1 and 2) that are being build (no drama here). And then follows km 70,620 to km 72,940 - about this part absolutely NO information.

EDIT: 70,620-72,940 - It's a connection road, it's gonna be finished with LOT 2.

SECOND EDIT: 1,500-5,000 - This part is ready, but it hasn't been used until now. It must be layed a new layer of asphalt which will be done by the opening in the mid 2013.

The asphalt is so dark... and the road markings are very clear and visible. It can only be an interchange in Bulgaria!
