well, I cannot see from this distance if it is in good or bad condition. and 10 years isn't that much.
anyway, I hope somebody will make good photos of all bulgarian motorways because everybody are interested into it! perhaps you could when you'll travel first somewhere

Haha man, you're obsessed with the Struma Motorway but we're also interested in the old Bulgarian motorways, some people perhaps even more, since they've been open for a long time, but we still don't know much about them.

also, any kind of information about viaducts are welcome as well, too!

where is this and what are the names and lenghts of this tunnel and viaduct?

Wikipedia:

(виадукт „Бебреш“) is a girder bridge part of the Bulgarian Hemus (or A2) motorway, located in Vitinya Pass in Stara Planina 60 km east of Sofia, at 1,050 m above sea level. It was opened in 1985 and was designed by the team of D. Dragoev, P. Minchev and Y. Todorov of Moststroy AD.

The viaduct is 720 m long and has 12 spans 60 m each. Rising 120 m above the floor, it is also regarded as the highest bridge in the Balkans and Bulgaria, with the precast post-tensioned girders being produced at the place and special equipment being used for the assembly. The Bebresh Viaduct weighs 220 tons and is a favoured place for bungee jumping due to its height.

Yes, because it has many bridges and generally is higher as the surrounded earth so you always think you travel high, i like this quite a lot. On pictures it can´t be seen but they built the middlecrashbarriers very interesting so that they are really interesting to look at while driving there and finally i like it because it looks extremly modern because it is so shiny, i am glad they use metal for crashbarriers and bridge balustrade instead of ugly concrete which gets quite common the last time i have noticed. To travel on that motorway reminds me of a game doom3 where it is also very modern and with lots of shiny metal.

Yeah, it's massive. And Bulgaria is beautiful. The Balkans and The former Yugoslavia is really a hidden treasure.

Many of the people in my country don't look further than France or Spain. But there is so much more to the southeast...

Are you refering to the Balkan mountain or to Balkans in General, in bulgaria the balkan mountain is not the most impressive but the rila mountain which is very high and very steep at some places, it has deep valleys and an apline charakter, the balkan mountain does not have much of an alpine charakter.

i mean the entire Balkan peninsula. But gentle slopes can be beautiful too. (like that picture of that bridge).

Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Montenegro etc. All very beautiful countries, but some are a bit underdeveloped, which scares the luxury minded lazy Western European holiday go-er i think.

^ Nah, those times are over I think; loads of "Westerners" go to crazy places on Earth, much more than the Balkans. I myself used to desire travelling to places like Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Libya, Myanmar, ... Slovenes are pretty crazy when it comes to things like this; now two Slovenians are trying to become the first people to criss-cross Greenland on foot. Not to mention the successful Amazon-swimmer Martin Strel...

The problem is that i (still) live in Germany because of my parents, but if everything will go well i will return to buglaria soon, anyway i am a native bulgarian and go to holiday ther very often, i lived in bulgaria for several years but than my parents moved to germany, now we are thinking of returning all, but if not i will try to return there and study in a university there. I´ve taken pics of the struma motorway but we have enough of them but if you want i can post my pics of taht motorway aswell.
