I'm not quite sure I understand your question... This section (LOT1) runs along the old road and ends 3-4 kilometers before reaching Dupnitsa. So the Dupnitsa bypass is not part of this construction. It is part of LOT2 which is tendered with the project-making together, so when the tender finishes, then will be known which trace for a bypass is chosen.

It's been said several times by different officials, incl the Prime minister too. But yesterday there was some rather strange statement, that the bridge will be constructively completed till the end of November, but maybe there wont be time to put the asphalt layers on it untill then!?!

And few more pictures:

Yesterday the contracts were signed.
so the quality of that part of the Struma motorway will be just "as good" as the motorway on the other side of the border, a nice selection of construction company, really.

Thank you. I feel the works have picked up pace though I couldn't estimate the completion this year.

The works are getting some awesomeness from now on!

the road looks like it is very new and those markings are not even the final markings, the asphalt looks as if it has been paved yesterday. when you dismiss the old almost faded markings.



Where will this road lead, is it the road that will connect the E-79 with the new Struma motorway? I hope not, they should make a grade seperated change for it.

Dupnica will be bypassed on the west.
In order noone to be confused the contract is "design and build" contract.

pffff calm down. This is just a temporary detour to build the motorway overpass over your existing "masterpiece with fading markings".

Well the section from Stara Zagora till Yambol East will be opened ot 30th of June! Perhaps on your drive back to Plovdiv you will be driving on the new motorway and in that way you will be one of its first users!

Some pictures of the worst condition motorway section in Bulgaria - the A2 eastern part between Shumen and Varna, Source - news article at www.dnes.bg:

















Last pictures show how advertisement business has declined with the finance crysis.

This may be the worst-quality motorway in Europe, or at least in the European Union. Romania and Poland gave up their "contestants" about 5 years ago.

Two years ago I drove in Macedonia on the motorway connecting Veles to Skopje which was quite worse than that... Actually A2 Hemus is not that bad, it's quite bumpy and not very pleasant to drive, but there aren't real dangerous potholes (almost all of them are filled)...
