AFAIK there is a memorandum that the next bridge will be financed by Romania. That was agreed when the decision for Vidin-Calafat was made, because Bulgaria financed it and urged to build it on that specific location. My guess is that the present tender for pre-FS in Romania is related to this memorandum.

There is no such east/west devision.

I also think it's now Romania's turn to build the bridge. Hence this pre-fesability study. We'll keep you posted.

Thanks for clarification and how about ferries? Which state manages them or they are commercial venues?

There's no agreement between the countries, it's just that Bucharest is on the east side of the Danube, while Sofia is on the west, so each country has different priorities, which it tries to push forward. That's why the Vidin-Calafat brige took so long to finally get built, because the romanian goverment wouldn't agree to the position of a second Danube bridge.

Even if it does not requires immediate replacement today, it will likely do within 20 years, so it's more economical to construct one 2x2 bridge at once, rather than two two-lane spans some time apart.
Moreover, sections before border checkpoints must be at least 2x2 to accommodate queues.

They are privately owned and it's rumored both in BG and RO that they are economically tied with political parties. Thus, BG and RO govs are not really pushing forward bridges.

I didn't watch the whole thing, but some notes;

* speed limit on the bridge is only 60 km/h. That seems low, but on the other hand if there is a line of queuing trucks it's not safe to drive much faster.
* lack of shoulders and roadside protection. There is a steep ditch on the Romanian side with no barrier. Also, a bridge pier right next to the roadway is unprotected by a barrier. Usually road designs incorporate an "obstacle-free zone". Everything in that zone that is not crash-friendly needs to be protected by guardrails.

And if I may add a note: on a traffic sign in BG only Calafat and Craiova are marked, nothing like Drobeta Turnu Severin or Lugoj that would have been good to be added also, being on the European TEN-T Core corridor.

Can somebody clarify how the vignette situation was solved in Vidin? Because after leaving bridge we land on beltway road outside city. Where is point in which road becomes tolled and where vignettes can be bought? Is there any map of tolled road sections in BG?

Satelite progress on A4 Chirpan - Aleksandrovo. Therefore you can see whole lot 1 Chirpan - Dimitrovgrad with Maritsa bridge and the begining of lot 2 Dimitrovgrad - Aleksandrovo with Dimitrovgrad junction.

A2 near Shumen is now visible on Google Earth. It was recently extended west a few kilometers to I/7. Makes you wonder why they didn't extend it another 3 km to I/2, which would be faster / more convenient for Ruse - Varna traffic.
