It is quite good, but it could have been much much better. If Marica motorway (A4 Plovdiv - TR border) had been finished this summer as planned, we could have added some 75 kilometers more. But all of the A4 sections are being postponed for next year.

2014 - app. 95 km of new motorways (A4 - 75 km, A3 - 15 km, A0 - 5 km) and they are talking of full reconstruction of some 70 kilometers of the old part of A1 Trakiya between Pazardzhik and Plovdiv.

2015 - app. 60 to 90 kilometers of new motorways (A3 - 37 km, A0 - 21 km and hopefully 31 kilometers of A7 towards the Serbian border).

The one and only Struma motorway[A3] lot 1 Dolna Dikanya - Dupnitsa:

Табели и километрични знаци все още няма никъде. Виадуктът не е свързан със "сушата" .















This section would be opened on 30th June according to official sources. However, bulgarian forumers doubt that beacause the construction company is repaving a small stretch for some reason.

The section that will enter in service is Dolna Dikania interchange - Dupnitsa-north interchange. This viaduct on the pic is also part of lot 1, but at present it leads to nothing, since lot 2 is not built yet, so they decided to leave its completion for the next months. The deadline for the whole lot 1 is in September, and the section that will enter in service (Dolna Dikania interchange - Dupnitsa-north interchange) will do that ahead of schedule (quite extraordinary for the region).

Ah that explains it. The rest looks nearly finished. Maybe they did some pavement test boring and found out some pavement quality wasn't up to standards, so they are repaving that. Usually the constructor has to cover any repairs in the warranty period, and it's cheaper to repair it now than after the first winter.

Bulgaria is going to have its first entirely finished motorway.
Two short but very important sections of A2 Hemus will be opened.
And the first EU financed LOT of A3 Struma between Dolna Dikanya and Dupnica will be completed.

So this is the opening schedule:
-June 30-th 17km. of A3 Struma between Dolna Dikanya and Dupnitsa North
-July 5-th 35km. of A1 Trakiya between Yambol East and Karnobat
-July 5-th 8km. of A2 between Shumen East na Panayot Volov
-July 30-th 8,5km. of A2 between Sofia Ringroad and Yana
We have a slight correction. A1 Trakia will be opened at july 12 The Minister of regional development anounced yesterday.
Also A2 section between Shumen East and Panayot Volovo is not supose to be opened at 05.07, but more likely at the end of july.

Any lot of new motorway looks better than the previous one, if I compare to the earlier lots with differently coloured shoulder those lots really look like sciense fiction. The new Trakya, Hemus and Struma really look impressive and beyond this planet. Bulgaria for sure knows how to build well looking roads.

Beyond this planet - compared with what Bulgarian roads looked like before.
Seriously, I am very impressed by quick development of motorways in Bulgaria, well done. Yet, lets try to be real, new motorways there are fair and overall nice, but certainly not the latest fashion or the most advanced, even speaking for the Balkans. I.e. "Dalmatina" is still a sci-fi motorway to these. Also, can anyone give precise measures of right schoulder track on these new bulgarian motorways, as I'm constantly having an impression that its a little bit more narrow than for example Serbian and Croatian ones? There was a good comparison table somewhere on this board, maybe Andrej posted it?
and by the way, has anyone checked recently if Struma motorway got repaired on those few hundred meters somewhere after Pernik, track towards south? As I could notice there (august 2012) a big stretch of surface got depressed as it was caused by some kind of slight landslide.

No. Bulgarian emergency lanes are 3.5m. I think there are no countries in EU with wider emeregency lanes.

Only Maritsa motorway[A4] will have 3m wide emergency lanes.
