Maybe it's because the current E-79 road goes through places which don't have the proper view towards the Pirin mountain. We'll see!

I don't know where will the 13 km tunnel finish, to configure what will be the scenery there. It's important to notice that the highway is wider and gives you better prospective to watch. Now the current road has many curves and goes through the jungle-like forest and is tough to see Pirin's peaks.

Well, I guess I know that mountain better then most people here, i have been to many places and the only places were you have big height differences and see peaks or slopes from big height differences are the place between Predela and Razlog, a valley south of vihren, the Banderiza Valley with view to Vihren and Todorka and a place near Razloshki Suhodol, however Razloshki suhodol the peak can be seen from 2000 m close. At south Pirin there is a valley with Bjala reka, the slopes visible are not very high though, there are some nice valleys in middle Pirin close to the Greek border oh and indeet there is a place at the Sinanica peak, where you have a beautiful peak that goes quite low to the mountain.

Pirin mountain can be seen from E-79 from a distance about 15 - 20 km.

you will not see Pirin peaks at all, since they are too far away and the rocks at the kresna gorge are too close, they might be seen better though. When you look at the rila mountain, it is one valley after another, a lot of valleys have side valleys where even no one has been.

Come on, this is not mountains and nature thread, it's about highways...

So, today was published some upsetting information about Sofia's Northern Speed Tangent (Северна скоростна тангента) which is supposed to replace the rather narrow and longer northern section of the ring road. Previously, it was said that the tangent, which is about to connect 4 motorways (A5 Lyulin and the connection to Serbia from west to A2 Hemus and A1 Trakia in the east of Sofia) and also 4 euro-corridors is to be complete motorway with 3 lanes in direction and hard shoulders. Today the chairman of the National Agency for Road Infrastructure Lazar Lazarov said, that the Northern Speed Tangent will be an expressway with 2 lanes in direction (and most probably without hard shoulders). It will be tendered shortly and is supposed to be ready in 3 years.

We can have a bit offtopic about mountains for example, everywhere there is, Slovenia, Austria, each country with mountains has some discussions about them, so I wanted to add my two cents.

That is just different color, if you go through it, you do not feel it and it is at one place only.

It's not different color, it's 4-5 cm deep and the whole upper layer of asphalt is missing (that's why you see the color of the lower layer of different asphalt), people aren't blind, so stop pretending there isn't a problem.

Any motorway after 6 years of use has such things once in 10 km, the M5 in Hungary aswell, in other countries they get fixed, in Bulgaria it is not being fixed, that is why it is still there.

Struma is not perfect, but it's not bad. It's decent. And with the scenery goes to excellent.

it looks like this motorway will not survive winter, potholes must emerge with asphalt condition like this.

It endurred 5 winters without any problem you fool, you can see that most of the asphalt, except that place is incredible and it endurres winters with no problem, it is after the Hemus the motorway with highest altitude in Bulgaria and has a lot of snow, dust rain, fog, ice and for that it's condition is more then good.

No, it is not, that is one place where this happened many years ago and the Struma motorway does not get holes, I don't want if you understand that or not, but it is not a motorway which is getting holes, maybe in 5 years, but the asphalt is just not the type of asphalt that gets holes, the asphalt will endurre landing of ery heavy Antonov airplanes without getting holes and people who are inside will have a very smooth landing. The motorway has no tracklines from trucks, it is all the same, tracks could not deepen the right lane of the motorway at all, while on other motorways they appear after two years of use.

This is one fascinating thread about pothole in Struma motorway .
I didn't follow whole thread so quick questions to my Bulgarian friends: when is an opening day for bridge between Bulgaria and Romania? Is it going to be 2+2 ? How is it going to be connected to highway systems in both countries, as a motorway itself?

Yes, Danube bridge 2 Vidin-Calafat is going to be 2+2 and a single railway in the middle. It is going hopefully to be connected with an expressway 2+2 south to Botevgrad with A2.
Completion deadline fo the bridge is end of 2012. The expressway itself is going to be built in next period 2014-2020, except the very near part - the Vidin bypass (seen on pictures here), and also some existing parts between the towns of Mezdraa and Vratsa. No news for serious plans of expressway or motorway on the Romanian side for now.

Guys ! No need to be rude nor to get mad at each other ! radi6404 - please chill out ! Everyone has the right to have his/her own opinion ! Relax ! Go take a nice beer with Bad_Hafen & see your debate with him as something positive: people are actually interested in the Struma motorway !

Now I join rakcancer & ask the same question on other Bulgarian motorways !

EDIT: Chilio was faster
