The time for this lot is not much and it will be a small feat to finish it on time.

There are a lot of speculations in the media about Yambol-Karnobat section these days.

Soon we'll know better what's the situation there - our fellow forumer Galin Gradev took a lot of pictures and will upload them. Also he states that if there are no further problems, the section can open for traffic in July 2013.

There was a short tv reportage on the news today. The section is at ~80% finished. Upper layers of asphalt are not being laid down atm. There are some delays but construction company has assured that motorway could open at the end of June. Maritsa motorway by the end of this year.

Lets hope for the best.

Danube bridge Vidin-Calafat nears completion, works are at some final details:

4. Монтиране на скари за високотоковите и слаботоковите кабели в кутията на връхната конструкция на моста

6. Направа на ограничителни бордюри на моста


7. Подготовка на бетонната основа на моста за полагане на хидроизолация


8. Монтаж на защитен елемент при стълб РВ12
The international Bulgarian-Romanian company that will operate the bridge will start working on 12th March, discussion issues about opening date and taxes. Media speculations are that the bridge will be inaugurated on 9th of May, the Day of Europe. In some coincidence the parliamentary elections after the political crysis these weeks have now been set for 12th of May.

And A2 section from Sofia Ring Road to current km 0 of the motorway near Yana village also nears completion, as seen in another nice report from user 7588 in this thread (from post 3198). Some selected pics:

Обнових таблицата за текущото строителство в Уикипедия, за да рефлектира лот 2 на Струма. Три неща ми направиха впечатление.

1. Лот 2 като стойност е 1/3 от цялото магистрално строителство в момента.
2. Общата стойност на всички отсечки в строеж вече е над 1 млрд. лева.
3. Отново се строят над 200 км. магистрали

http://bg.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%90%...82.D0.B2.D0.BE

edit: Почти 200 км, тъй като таблицата не рефлектира петнайсетината км. на лот 4.1 на Тракия.

A3 Struma motorway reaches Blagoevgrad by the end of 2014

Few days ago construction started on the longest and most expensive section of Bulgarian highways of all that were constructed in the last years. The contract for the 37 km long motorway between Dupnitsa-north and Blagoevgrad was signed with one of Bulgaria’s best construction companies GBS (GlavBolgarStroy) for about 185 million Euros. It is due to finish in 22 mounts, so we expect this section to enter service around the end of 2014/beginning of 2015.

Some details of DUPNITSA-BLAGOEVGRAD section:

Length: 37 km
Cost: 185 mil. Euros (360 mil. Leva)
Due to: end of 2014 (or 22 mounts of construction)
Number of interchanges: 4
Number and length of tunnels: 3, total length of app. 1000 meters
Number and length of bridges: 9, total length of app. 4370 meters

The motorway section in Dupnitsa region (marked with orange):



The motorway section in Blagoevgrad region (marked with orange):



INTERCHANGES
Dupnitsa-south interchange:



Boboshevo interchange:



Kocherinovo interchange:



Blagoevgrad-north interchange:

Beacause motorways have higher requirements for road slopes and curves.
