That deviation close to Marikostinovo is it the same as it was 2 months ago? If I remember correctly it passes under a small bridge, right?
Thank you!

Is the A-4 motorway going to finish in 2014 or 2015? I think this motorway is one of the most important to Bulgaria and Europe. It is the connection with Istambul and Turkey! I'm happy that Bulgaria is constructing this important motorway.

In spring and summer 2014 all of the 78 missing kilometers should enter in service, the construction is finally progressing well since the companies transferred their equipment from A1 Trakiya.On the previous page you can see a video showing the construction of A4.

Thanks for Your answers,

I have 10 days to select the route. Unfortunately, this year I'll drive my own car (instead of business), so I have to find the best balance between distance, time and costs.

It's my brainstorm time!

Thank You again! Doskoro!

Any plans for Sofia-Serbian border highway, when it might be realized? It seems like Bulgarian infrastructure is progressing, great highways.

There is a tender procedure running for ~31km of Kalotina motorway (of total 50) from the Serbian border to the village of Herakovo, but it may lack funding. Also, we have a new government and it's not certain that Kalotina motorway is in their priorities.

I see in your map that A-2, A-5 and the Northern Sofia Ring Bypass is in planning stage.

- When do you think that motorways are finished? Before 2020 can be possible?

- What of this motorways is of first importance?

Until 2020 must be finished the last 64km of A3(Struma motorway - pink/purple) because it is part of an agreement with the EU.

IMO, it's possible to build lots 1,2,3 and 4(up to Pavlikeni) of A2(Hemus motorway-red) or 112km in total. This section has the highest AADT and wil greatly improve traveling times compared to current alternative roads I-3 and I-4. Build less and motorway would be almost empty. Everything else uo to 2020 would be a bonus.

I doubt A5(Cherno more/Black sea motorway) would become U/C up to 2020.

You forgot lot 2 of Struma between Dupnitsa and Blagoevgrad L=37,5 km. Although real construction on should start in August, the deadline is running, at least I think it is.

Has the bit of Struma that's meant to have opened (Dolna Dikyana - Dupnica) opened yet?

Looking at the schedule most recently posted in this thread, part of Hemus, and the competition of Trakiya should have happened yesterday.

The motorway looks impressive, the asphalt is black and it has the new relief markings that make a noise when you pass over them. The impressive exit at Dupnica north is really impressive, it is very long.
