Btw this is a very unused and for now unimportant road though part of the second class highway network. It's interesting about it that a tunnel was built but never finished and put into operation - tunnel Kashana:

I'm quite appalled by the sorry state of the Sofia Ring Road. It looks more like a country road than a beltway of a major city. Only the southeastern part is okay.

The western part of the ringroad is marked to be under construction, but I don't know whether it really is or it isn't, since one of the pictures shows the western part with no construction.

Also, looking around, certainly the worst signage in the EU - even on the newer motorways. Road numbers may or may not appear, may or may not be right, signs for junctions are often tiny and too late, etc, etc.

Pictures on Google Street View are about one year old (shot generally March-May 2012), so the actual state and places under construction and reconstruction can't be seen.

Chris, there are actually quite a lot of projects for the ring road:
- Western part is under construction
- Northern part will be replaced by a new route - the Northern Tangent, which is being tendered
- Link between western part in construction and the already widened south part is being projected and will be constructed/reconstructed in next EU-funding period after 2014 with large portion of tunnel and bridges for the transit traffic.
- Only part with no actual plans in the near future is the link from the south to the eastern part (between Mladost district and the start of A1).

*The section which was u/c (in yellow) is now completed.
*The section with technical project (brown) is now u/c.
*Northern tangent and another section of the ring road are in tender procedures, but it's not sure that construction works will start this year. EU funds could be insufficient for these projects.


*red - tender

Romania will lower the crossing tax over danube bridge , rousse - giourgiu from 6 to 2 eur (for cars), it seems that will happen next week, good job Romania!

There's quite a lot of traffic there. The south side gets more traffic as it acts more like a city street, but the international traffic goes north. I've never understood why that road is in such horrific condition.

I think the sory state of Sofia ring road is due to the fact that it's planned for expansion. So funds for repairs are diverted to toher roads(IMO good desicion). Though it would be good if markings were renewed regularly.

A very goo and extensive map done by a member:
[IMG]http://i47.************/168fqkm.png[/IMG]

Legend:
Greeen - built motorway
Red - U/C motorway
Yellow - planned motorway
Light blue - 2x2 road
Purple - U/C 2x2 road

4 bids opened in the tender for Northern tangent. Seems that Italian consortium is about to win with an offer of ~96.63 M euro.

Was II/17 Botevgrad bypass designed as an airstrip? It's mega wide with no raised median.
