Also a word of advise for those of you who label the maps. Before using a literal translation of a given word, look it up on google image search. That way you'll know that "speedway" means something completely different
These "speedways" lets call them expressways without emergency lines are crap. There are a lot of accident.

Обозначенията на края





Бяха паднали два знака, единият се вижда на долната снимка, а другият беше на края на завоя. Отгоре на надлеза имаше чакаща патрулка, но явно на униформените им беше много трудно да слязат и да вдигнат опасните знаци



А тук табелата би трябвало да е синя

Is Trakia highway open from Plovdiv to Burgas? Can you go to the Black sea only using the highway now?

So it ends at II/53 west of Yambol, not I/7.

It does for now. The section of II/53 to I/7 is part of LOT4 but should be opened to traffic by the beginning of the next month, ahead of the final stretch.

That's right. It was supposed to be opened on September 1st based on the contract. We're getting another section ahead of time and on budget.

excellent news guys, I really like how motorway network grows fast in Bulgaria!

Will they ever, in some mid-future, start connecting Sofia with the rest of E80 to the west? Right now the road between Sofia and Kalotina is in excellent condition, but what I can't get so far is why Bulgaria doesn't start constructing a motorway there. It wouldn't be more than 50 kilometers, and motorway from Serbian side will be fully finished quite soon (in a scope of 2 years, depending which section). Wouldn't be interest of Bulgaria to connect there, as in that case one could have full motorway profile road to all western/central European areas, also being the shortest link compared with alternative no-motorways routes through Romania? Are any news/plans about that in Bulgaria right now?
