The vitosha mountain is surely one of the more impressive mountains in Bulgaria, it is steep and rocky and has steep slopes and peaks. The slopes in Sofia are pretty high and steep and for example the slope where the high tv tower is build looks really tiny in comparison to the alpine slope the tv tower stands. Vitosha is a great mountain.

I like a lot that the old E-79 can be seen from the motorway. The people passing there, seeing the shiny blue sings, pass over the brilliant looking E-79 on the Struma motorway and see the great mountains will think they are passing in an extremly modern country. Not a lot of countries have a modern and smooth nationalroad that can be seen from the motorway, foreign people will love it and talk about it in the pubs, they will be amazed.

A 3km section of Sofia ring road's west arc b/n A6 Lyulin motorway and Slivnitsa blvd (and the road to Kalotina border crossing to Serbia) is in a process of expansion.

The section includes 2 important interchanges - one with highly populated Lyulin neighbourhood, and another with Slivnitsa blvd./currect road to Serbia.

you can see how the Struma motorway has darker asphalt than the Ljulin motorway. I can tell the Ljulin will have some defects four years from now, even now it has a few waves and bumps, but it is not the worst, it is average but not as good as the Struma which has only one tiny defect after 7 years. Let's see how the new Struma motorway will be, I have big trust in Glavbulgarstroi, since they built the road to Bansko very very well and smooth.



The small tower on the top of the Vitosha mountain slope is about 160 m high and look how tiny it looks, so you can iagine how big the mountain slope aktually is.

From 4 lines of 6 are going to Turkey ( Kapitan Andreewo - Kapikule ). I think a direct highway ( Svilengrad-Ruse ) between Romania and Turkey will come in future.

Interesting article http://ruse.dir.bg/news.php?id=13670299

The state thinks about building new bridge between Rousse/Giurgiu.
The current bridge has not been repaired in years and is having difficulties taking the increased traffic.
That paired with the project of building Rousse-Svilengrad highway results the need of a new bridge ...

As you can see on the map the Kalotina motorway is not under construction yet, also noone has talked about it for now, so it is not under construction yet.

You can see the path on the maps, but I don't know specific plans for it yet, I am especially wondering where it will pass at the mountains, the motorway could fit in the narrow valley if the current road is removed and used as a motorway, otherwise the motorway would probably pass elsewhere, which will raise the cost for it a lot, if it has to be build around the mountain probably to the north of the valley.

Sofia northern bypass is tendered atm. Construction is expected to begin probably in autumn 2013.
Kalotina motorway is at stage projects. Financing however has not yet been secured.

Does anyone know where it will pass? I hope it will fit in the current valley so the costs will be much less than building it to the north or south of the mountain, also the distance will be much more if it will be build around the valley. I only see difficulty at the train bridge near the border.

It will be replace the current road. Unfortuantely it would not be a complete motrway-A29(2x3.75+3.5e). The first 15km till the border will be something like an micro-motorway(2x3.5+2e). The rest will be something like an mini-motrway(2x3.75+2e).

BTW, Hemus motorway[A2] new junction near Sofia Ring Road that is U/C is now visible on GoogleEarth. Here's an aerial of the same section that is U/C:

Not all of it originates from Turkey. There is also a lot of traffic to/from Middle East.

Really? Syria, Iraq an Iran don't seem to be likely sources of much traffic at this time...

You'd be surprised. Plus, that's only international traffic, local still counts for the majority
