Ofcourse it is that strumatic, would you experience this motorway and the future sections of it, you would say the same about it. I kow that I am a bit extreme about motorways, but I tell you, anyone who has really experienced the Struma motorway has lost words about it's smoothness and quality, anyone was amazed, it is magical and would you experience it, you would mention it somewhere aswell

Updated highway map of Bulgaria, with the expected dates of opening of the new sections, as well as expected dates of starting the construction of the new sections, priorities for this year:





A2 E83 HEMUS Highway (Sofia-Varna) route.



Currently all tenders have started for updating and completing the old technical plans, so construction of the rest app. 270 kilometres can start as soon as possible with the new programme period (2014-2020).

Struma is salvation, it is hypnotic, it is Strumatic.

It is the 5-6 km long Western part of the ring of Sofia, which will link the end of Sofia-Pernik-Thessaloniki motorway, with the motorway Sofia - Nish - Belgrade via the new 3 level crossing, and the new Northern ring of Sofia which is due to start in spring this year. It will have several interchanges and a bridge over river Kakach. It is also going to have a direct link to Lyulin district (additional to the one at blvd. Slivnitsa).

If I get it right , Struma motorway is this short completed section going from Sofia down next to Pernik and then shall continue to Dupnica (U/C) and on south planned to end at Kulata on the Greek border?

I don't know if I missed something while passing there. I drove it twice this summer on a motorbike. Nothing so spectacular to notice for it's design, or maybe I missed something. I know that when you go from south towards intersection near Pernik, on your right there is one local turning that isn't de-levelized from the motorway, which is a scandal, if we talk about motorway standards. However, it's maybe there to wait for some petrol station construction or so, no idea. Also, quality of road is criminal at some points, please be real, if you go towards south, that auxilary lane had two or three huge dents measuring few meters or close to ten meters in their length, it was obvious that motorway surface wasn't prepared well before putting surface layers. If you're on a bike, you can die if you ride over them at some higher speed.
Also, didn't notice any SOS phones, roadside infrastructure was kind of weird, having more than enough technical stops for guys who maintain the road, but not enough petrol stations and almost none roadside rest points with shades (I passed in August on +35 on a bike, so couldn't miss this).
Correct me if I'm wrong or things got improved, but this is what I noticed there. In my opinion, it's just a regular motorway with few serious failures (dents, for example).

edit:
to prevent misunderstanding, I refered to Struma portion when saying about dents, cracked asphalt and non de-levelized side road. Didn't refer to Lyulin motorway part in this post.

But what about the gas station with the McDonalds that looks like it is from Mars in the next century?

Btw, we should probably soon sign a contract for E80 SRB/BG border Sofia and Sofia bypass and thus connect SRB to the three motorways around Sofia - Lyulin[A6]->Struma[A3], Hemus[A2] and Trakia[A1].

Good news indeed ... IMHO , E80 (A7) & Sofia bypasses are vital infrastructures which need to be prioritized ... All motorways going through Sofia need to be interconnected , atm they just end nowhere...

In other news ... Danube bridge 2 could be officially opened on 9th of May (The day of Europe) ... depends only on weather ... till now it has been gracious and the name of the bridge will not be "Danube bridge 2" but possibly Dunonia bridge (Vidin emerged at the place of an old Celtic settlement known as Dunonia)
