That is correct! Now we just have to wait and see how many years/decades it will take for all the road signs to be changed.

Why designation A3 ends at Pernik, and change to A6 towards Sofia?

Did someone promised two motorways in Pernik?

If I´m not mistaken, the future motorway between Varna/Burgas will be signed A5. My question is, why a totally new number? Why can´t it be signed as A1(full length of the section) and the section A4 would probably be signed as A15 in Hungary, I think? What is the reason for that?

The motorway between Varna and Burgas is numbered as A5 since 30 years. The initial plan made from the government in 1960's and 1970's was to make Bulgarian motorway ring, made by Trakiya, Cherno more and Hemus motorways. Plus that there were Maritsa motorway from Chirpan toward Turkish border.

If that motorway would run towards the Romanian border, it would make sense to give the north-south part another number than A1.

I guess by then there was no plan to built the struma motorway at all. Luckily it is being built now.

The different number probably came from the fact, that Varna-Burgas road is generaly not a simple continuation of Trakiya, and most of the traffic there is not comming from it.
Sure there were and there are still plans for a highway from Varna toward Durankulak at Romanian border back in 70's and now. But I belive it's not the reason for numbering of Cherno more.

The white line is the new railway (rehabilitated old but it is practically new) from (Plovdiv) Krumovo to the Turkish/Greek borders. The section between Krumovo and Dimitrovgrad was opened this summer.

Sleeping cars speed test on the new railway

I found this video in Romania thread> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HJvHYujXlM
Is A2 still closed as one can see at the end of video?

Btw, I drove new stretches of A1 on Sept. 1st. Quality is very good, a far as I could detect from driving in complete darkness. At least asphalt is not so noisy as on older stretches. I hope it will last long. Last lot will connect Bourgas to Sofia and holiday drives will be shorter both in terms of distance and time. Too bad fuel prices are not going to drop.

Impressive new nationalraod opened towards Kiustendil from Dupnica. Kiustendil is an important and very beautiful and modern town in western Bulgaria, it has a lot of clothe and shoe stores and shoe factories and has beautiful historical architecture. The new nationalraod looks very good with some great asphalt and great markings, where they are applied allready. The black nationalroad together with the modern gasstation in that one pic looks really like you are in a welathy country.

the Struma motorway. here we see that it aktually will become truth. I have been waiting for these pictures for 5 years now. Finally we see them. new asphlat fro the Struma motorway towards Dupnica, it will be truth, the old one is still as good as it always was according to what people say. The Ljulin is also very good, so alltogether with this Bulgaria should have 60 km of very high standart motorway.

Just look what a thick layer of asphalt they added, I think the motorway will be very smooth and driving on it will feel as gliding on a hoovercraft, the very thikc asphalt will provide extremly confortable drives for cars and buses and their passengers.

Will there be a space-age McDonald's and gas station too?

I must think of it´s best definition first. -Radi Click
