McDonald's unlikely, since there is a Mars like Mcdonald's station there allready, but I think there will be a shining futuristic gas station there, which will provide luxiries like touchscreen tv for each table for using tv channels or internet and with a computer, that has telepathic scanning abilities, so the weighters will be able to serve drink and foot to the visitors without them ordering it orally in first place.

Now this looks impressive. People who see this think they are in the future. The old Struma motorway still looks good and the crashbarriers on this picture are still shiny, yet the new motorway has progressed a lot and is expected to be incredible aswell. It looks like on doom3 outdoor maps in this picture.

With the impressive bridge over the motorway with Radomir road and the blue plant in the distance, the many untouched looking motorways this will be a nice place for taking some interesting adds or movies for new cars and so on. The terrain where the Struma motorway passes is thevery good for it, since the motorway descents and goes down to Dpunica so people can see the whole motorway, all the bridges and the futuristic E-79 nationalraod, together with the Rila mountain, the space like plants in the distance and the rough landscape this will be much better than aly place on the Hemus or Trakia motorway, because the landscape and the many new roads + the motorway just make it look like a place in future.

the struma motorway on the quoted picture looks like it has opened yesterday.

Today the president of the National Agancy for Road Infrastructure Lazar Lazarov stated, that there has been taken final decision the road between Sofia and the Serbian border to be full-scale motorway, not just expressway.
The tender for it will be this October.

Turkey Quits Key Bulgarian Motorway Project

Turkey has decided to exit the project for the construction of a major highway running from Romania to Turkey and Greece via Bulgaria (aka the Ruse-Svilengrad Road).

Bulgaria and Qatar are to continue negotiating for the establishment of a project company for the construction of the road, Bulgarian Regional Development Minster Lilyana Pavlova has told reporters.

Pavlova has clarified that Turkey's decision to quit the project is yet to be made official.

Turkey and Qatar committed themselves to constructing the projected Ruse-Svilengrad motorway at the end of May.

In early May, Lilyana Pavlova announced that Bulgaria would seek public-private partnership for the construction of the Ruse-Veliko Tarnovo-Svilengrad-Istanbul toll road.

The Ruse-Svilengrad road is expected to allow a faster connection of the Bosphorus Strait with the Danube Bridge through Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 9.

The two countries left in the project, Bulgaria and Qatar, are currently preparing a memorandum on its fulfillment.

There is not much official info. This project started only with Qatar and Turkey joined in later. Now Turkey is out w/o the partners to point reason, so it will continue with Qatar only.

We will see what will happen, but IMO it will be better if we build it with own money (including from the state budget, EU funds or a loan). We just don't have enough expirience with PPP or worse, we have bad expirience with the cancelled Trakia highway concession.

This motorway IMHO was a big balloon (Russe-Svilengrad). Just something for the cameras to flash about our prime minister...Lol. There were many uncertainties about it from the start. E.g. the project was for a toll way? How could it be toll way when BG has a vignette system ?

And also, it cannot be EU funded because it is not part of a corridor ...
just like hemus motorway

+1. And traffic doesn't warrant a return of investment there, as there are also other better routes from Turkey to Western Europe and this motorway doesn't pass near big bulgarian cities, that would generate big ammount of local traffic. It is also an expensive project having to pass over the Balkans. The current road through Republika is a pleasure to drive, not congested and with many 2+1 sections. It is enough for many years from now on.

On the other hand how do the works on A2 Shumen-Belokopitovo develop? Haven't seen any news from there for a few months. That's indeed an important stretch of motorway.

A more direct route (Ruse-Shumen) is in the works. Here are the priorities for the next programming period:

It's important for Bulgaria also because A2 links the capital Sofia with the 3rd biggest city in Bulgaria, Varna, which is a port at the Black Sea. That small part of motorway also links Russe and Varna so I guess is quite important for Bulgaria, not only for Romanian tourists going to bulgarian Black Sea resorts. There was lot of traffic on the national road there every time I passed. A2 seems to me much important for Bulgaria than Russe-Svilengrad.

Thanks. I have some hopes for a PPP on the Romanian side for Bucharest-Giurgiu. I hope Qatar will go ahead with the financing though.

Well, part of corridor 9 is - Bucharest - Dimitrovgrad - Alexandroupolis.
And the project is for Rousse - Svilengrad ... So it depends ... depends on how the EU clerks are seeing this route actually

The original news for the project was co-financing Bulgaria-Turkey-Qatar (without EU funding) So I don't think it is part of any corridors,but what do I know In the end maybe it could be granted EU funding ... the other option is to be paid (toll?) faster alternative. As I said before, this project is not even on the drawing board, rather in the sphere of rumors and media and has very unknowns ...

Fact is that an expressway Ruse-V.Tarnovo had been planed for the next progrmme periode 2013-2020, as it can be seen on the map above. After that it was said that due to lack of money in the cohesion fund for BG, because another expensive projects such as Kresna tunnel, Shipka tunnel, A2 Hemus motorway, 3. metroline in Sofia and a dozen of railway's projects, the road can be funded by PPP. And now this is how things look like!

According to BG news agency "Capital daily" the state of Qatar has put on deposit 50 mil USD in the Bulgarian development bank. This deposit is part of promised 200 mil USD in may this year, as a gesture of their real intentions to invest in various spheres in Bulgaria.

Who knows maybe this motorway shall be constructed after all....
