I guess you can start a thread in the skybar section. Just post a link in your signature or sent the ppl you want to invite a personal message.

(Using Google translate in the bulgarian section is not going to work)

Allright, good luck and let's start disscussing the Bulgarian motorways andere roads again

Would you object to this route: Varna, A2 (Shumen) onto 4 (Targoviste), south to Omyrtag, Kotel, down to Gorno Aleksandrovo, turn west on 6 towards Sliven, turn south for the A4 and travel until Plovdiv.

Is this ok planning or I am travelling in circles;
Having returned home and enjoyed the trip to Bulgaria very much, I'll give you some updates on the roads. The information is 4 days old.

Going out of Varna on the A2 there's a deviation, you have to get off the highway and drive around 10km on the side road (surface ok) before you join A2 again.

The surface of the A4 just before Plovdiv (last 20km maybe) is older tarmac, which makes a lot of noise inside the car, so speed much come down to 90-100kph.

Other than that, the roads I used where exactly as your project has them. Many thanks and keep up the good work!

It is supposed to open August 24th half-profile, September 10th - full profile.

Exactly the noise of travelling on stone. Almost white in colour!

And speaking of the mess with motorway numbering, it's again A1 there:

A1 makes most sense for this motorway, connecting the capital Sofia with the port of Burgas. National road numbering should reflect domestic traffic patterns, not that small proportion of overall traffic that drives all the way from Serbia to Turkey.

That's also the logic we implemented when naming the threads for the motorways in the Bulgarian infrastructure subforum. And also it continues uninterrupted from Sofia to Burgas, and from Sofia to Svilengrad it is a TOTSO near Chirpan

Well, it is A6, the higher, the better. The highest motorway number aktually has the Struma motorway and that is for a good reason, because it's quality of road surface and technical enginerring is worth of the mark 6, where the highest marks are the best. the motorway is really stable, it has endurred all kinds of extremes without any damage at all. Earth quakes, extreme heat, extreme cold, extreme rain, extreme snowfalls, ince for many months on the surface, sand and dust for many years on the surface, and yet it does not even have any waves, I hope the next stretch of the struma motorway will be as good.

Higher numbers indicate less important motorways generally

The main reason being that the Struma doesn't connect to other large Bulgarian cities.

That was a joke Chris, and besides that I do not think that the road numbering in Bulgaria is based on the importance of motorways since aktually the Struma motorway is being built and is very important to Bulgaria, also connecting many bigger towns in the southwest of Bulgaria and connecting some major roads like the nationalraod to Bansko. Which is why the Struma motorway is being constructed at the moment and two of the stretches are being build while another one is being prepared for construction. now when you look at the Hemus motorway you see that the road number says A2, yet it does not connect many large cities and only very short stretches are being constructed.

The reason why A6 is being constructed at the moment is not it connecting it to big towns in south-west or Bansko, but connecting it to Greece, Thessaloniki and it's major port, and Athens.

hi all,

it came to my attention today that the road junction "petolachkata" (the star), which is the main route towards the south black sea side resorts and de tour from A1 Thrakia motorway (well at least until the last LOT from A1 is finished), is going to be reconstructed into roundabout as from today. The vehicles coming from/to Burgas on I-6 will no longer drive with priority over the others .... instead standart rules for roundabouts are going to be applied
