Wow! Nice report and progress as well at the bridge. It looks like completion is possible this year.

BTW: asphalt is on in some pics.

Just a question, the border controls will be done on wich side? I guess that as Romania and Bulgaria are going to join Schengen, there will be just some removable booths, right?

I assume border checks will be executed at the toll plaza, considering the traffic volumes are likely not too high and border checks are rather lax anyway.

Video update from the construction of the South section of Sofia from a forumer from another Sofia infrastructure forum. Visible are the Bistritsa roundabout junction and the transit viaduct above, in the distance to the right the intersection to Mladost district, to the left - the viaduct for future new Kliment Ohridski blvd.

In the end of the above video the prime minister Boyko Borisov appears at the construction site with a Bayern Munich t-shirt. Earlier today he went to to see the advance of construction of A1's LOT4 near Yambol... with a t-shirt of Real Madrid...

So now people, who are travelling on one of the highest quality motorways in all of europe now see, how it continues. Judging on the out of universe high quality asphalt, they think, the motorway was finished just one year ago and they allready continue it. Let's just prey to god, that the new section will be just as high quality, as the old section. Since the LJulin motorway is not as good as the Struma motorway looking at the asphalt. The Struma motorway asphalt is not as soft and feels much more solid than the soft Ljulin motorway asphalt, but I think the Ljulin motorway is good enough to use. But ofcourse the Struma motorway is Bulgarias baby when it comes tomotorways since it is the motorway who has to endure the heaviest weather conditions in Bulgaria and it mostly isn't even cleaned properly. Ice and snow are on the motorway for months and it does not get even one hole of it, I am wondering what the Macedonians have done there so the motorway is so solid. But this motorway is the motorway that is built for fun, it is a motorway where people can speed up as much as they want, blasting loud msuic on their great audio systems, getting great skinny girls inside their cars from abroad or from Bulgaria which will say, omg, your motorway is so great, it errects me, so we can do it later, if you want. That is how good the Struma motorway is.

It is better than all Slovenian and Croatian roads I have seen, comparing and beating the Hungarian M5 motorway, which is another high quality motorway.

Cheers and keep the motorway clean and new.

OMFFFFFFFFFFFG!!! That's poetry. From what you say I can conclude that Struma motorway is like crops the more snow in winter the better preserved

BTW it is Lyulin motorway not Ljulin.

When are you planning a motorway, or an expressway, from Vidin to Sofia? Is it a far future plan?

For the next euro-funding period - 2014-2020. It will be an expressway between Botevgrad and Vidin 2x2 without hardshoulders, but with lots for emergency stopping, protective fences and only multylevel intersections. Project max speed is supposed to be 120 km/h. Small part of it is supposed to be in construction even before 2014 (from Botevgrad to Mezdra). Some parts between Mezdra and Vratsa are already 2x2 but need improvement. From Sofia to Botevgrad it is the A2 Hemus.

Here's a map of existing motorways&expressways+such in construction+such in project. It's not completely up to date, but still gives quite a good view about what is planned.
