National Agency for Roads? Should be (N)ARI - (National) Agency for Road Infrastructure...
Where is NAR written? I haven't watched the whole video...

At rest area exits. I assume it's some kind of abbreviation for a rest area?

The motorway looks very good. The noise protection walls, the crashbarriers, the asphalt. However it is a big eyesore to see the emergency lanes having a different colour, that is a very big dissapointment and the Slovenians are faulty, they started that crap.

These are not noise protection walls, but rather bird protection walls. If you look closely, you'll see birds drawn on the walls, in order to "scare" birds away from the motorway lanes.

I don't know about Slovenian colouring of emergency lanes, but it has been a intermittently used feature of Danish motorways for many decades to have a different colour. I guess it is partly to differentiate the lane from the normal driving lanes, and partly because the surface can have a different texture, more rough, more noisy, with better friction and so providing better stopping distances.

If you thinkthey do that on porpuse and for savety reasons, you are very wrong. they do it only for one reason, and it is to save money, whether the motorway would look worse or not is not important to them, nor is it important to them that in case of an accident or repairs people could use the emergency lande and have the same driving confort as on the driving lanes. Because of the same superior quality asphalt of the Struma motorway tracks sometimes drive on the emergenlcy lanes when it goes up, so they allow other traffic to overtake them easily.

You are probably right that saving money is another important reason.

Actually Trakiya motorway is signed just at Nova Zagora junction as A4, at all the rest junctions (Stara Zagora, Yambol-West and Yambol-East, Karnobat) is signed as A1.

Well, there're two real noise protection walls and you can see them in the last video at 07:02 on the left and 13:40 on the right.

It's true, if the weather till the end of the year it's not snowy. If the winter is hard, they'll leave it for April-May next year.
A6 is Struma, Sofia-Blagoevgrad and Sandanski-Kulata in 2015, the other part maybe 2018, noone knows.
A3 - Maritsa - October 2013.

there is a regulation that the upper asphalt layers should be laid when the temperature is above +5 C. Who knows... maybe the weather will be grateful and the last lot of Trakia could be finished before the end of 2012 ...
