Danube Bridge (Ruse-Giuriu) is also tolled

These are the only exceptions.

Roads are made of asphalt, right? Not diamonds.
So when we have contact between the tyre(s) and the asphalt, they both wear(of course with a quite different rate). So the bigger the load and the contact patch of the tyre(s), the bigger the wear of the asphalt. I am not saying that the difference is toooo much big, but there is a difference in wear of the asphalt.

In Greece, the toll prices for the bikes are much cheaper than the car's.
Just an example, if someone wants to cross Rio-Antirio bridge with a car, that will cost him/her 13,20 euros. The price for the bikes are 1.90 euros...
Anyway, sorry for the off-topic.

I believe he's not referring to surface wear caused by friction, but 'wear' in terms of deterioration of the structural integrity of the pavement, caused by higher axle load of heavy truck traffic.

Isn't the price in Lei floating due to the 'lea' not being pegged to the euro like the 'lev' is?


I've also read that on entering to Bulgaria you could pay only in lei or euro and on exiting - only in leva or euro.

Btw, I really love the discussion about different vehicle impact on roads.

From today statement of our transport minister we understand that:
- the big amount of traffic had been a big surprise(It is not a surprise for skyscrapercity forumers because all bulgarian traffic prognosis turn out to be hugely pesimistic no matter it is about road traffic or number of passengers that will use the underground)
- there was a day in which more than 2000 cars(or vehicles?) used the bridge
- in the end of this week, in which the bridge is no longer free, additional prognosis and estimates about the efficiency of the bridge would be made(and hopefully published)

Are not interested Bulgarian government and Romanian Government in a motorway linking Sofia and Bucarest? I think it could be good for the tourism and commerce, but I see in the map that motorway connection is not planned.

The "Hemus" motorway (A2) will effectively upgrade over half of the distance between the 2 cities up to a motorway standard. An expressway with no emergency lanes but with 120km/h speed limit is planned from A2 all the way up to Ruse. From that point on I'm not sure what the romanian plans are but it's a short distance to Bucharest anyway.

They should also focus on renovating existing motorways. Some of them are in shameful condition according to Street View.

Good news for A4 Maritsa motorway. Works have been resumed on lot 2. The same construction company - PST, that is about to complete Yambol-Karnobat on A1 Trakia motorway, has transferred machines and workers. Hope they will catch up, cause they are in a huge delay.

Hi guys, Zdrovejte

This year I'll spend my holidays in Sozopol again. My bulgarian trip starts in Rousse (Sunday, 14.07), then Shumen. And here's question.

A2 to Varna and along coast to Sozopol? I don't like it - huge coast traffic.

A few years ago some of you advised me A2 - Provadija - Aytos. Good alternative, but now is red on your map.

What do you think about Shumen - Karnobat or Shumen - Aytos (partly red)?

Regards from Poland

Bit respect to the builders of that motorway. It looks really like in a high standart country, very modern and clean. One thing is for sure, The mtorways in Bulgaria are some of the most picturesqueue motorways in europe.

Do you have some business in Shumen or you will just pass by?

If not, I recomend this route: http://goo.gl/maps/424kn - in two weeks time you will have a motorway also between Yambol and Karnobat.

Hi guys. I am going to drive tomorrow night towards Kulata from Sofia.
As I understand the new section of Struma will be open in a week or so.
Are there any sections/points of the Struma, from Sofia to Kulata, that I should really be careful? e.g. Are there any heavy machinery on the road or close by, or some deviations?
As you can understand, I have to be careful because of the darkness.
Thank you.

Deviations exist b/n Dolna Dikanya and Dupnitsa, because of the construction of lot 1. Also, there is a detour at Kulata, cause of the construction of lot 4. Map:
