This is how the operarational programmes look like as of March 2014:


All funds for OP Transport 2007-2013 are contracted. The only question is for the section of western arc of Sofia ring road. The EC has recently said that the funds for the western arc are approved, but a contract cannot be signed due to the ongoing litigation.

The other thing you can see clearly in the last 2 posts is that there is a huge difference between what the EU promises nowadays and what you actually get. A real rate of 60% is a good performance for a normal EU country and Bulgaria came in at 10% below the EU average. I would expect at least average performance this time round.

Consequently the €9.3bn of funds seemingly promised to Bulgaria under those programs is unlikely to go much over €6bn (or €1bn a year at most) and that €1bn a year includes expensive rail projects and training and reskilling programs ( some in colleges) funded by the EU.

Compare that with the 2000-2006 program which actually delivered over 90% of the promised cash. Same with previous programs ...I think the first 7 year program was 1993 to 1999 and before that it was rolling 2 years or something.

The EU has turned into a another politician which promises far more than it can deliver.

Hello


i am driving with my SUV Car from Germany to Turkey ( in one week ).

I will test the A1 Trakia Motorway and some finished parts of the A4 Maritsa till Kapitan Andrevo. Travel Time should be reduced due the motorway.

Pity the A4 Maritsa Highway will finish at the end of 2014

I wish you a save driving through Bulgaria. Hopefully next year you would be able to enjoy a motorway from Sofia till Kapitan Andreevo/Kapikule

I have a question for you. Do you plan to enter Bulgaria from Serbia at Gradinje/Kalotina border checkpoint or from Romania at Calafat/Vidin border checkpoint?

Thank You. I hope the police will not catch me for bills

The shortest way is over Kalotina border.

Dude, please, respect the speed limits. They exist for mutual protection, you know The motorway is coming.

True, 50km less but two EU/non EU borders more if you are coming from Germany through Hungary.
Do you have friends that have tried or plan to try the new Danube bridge at Calafat/Vidin?

Dude,In Germany there aren´t speed limits. And 80 km / h speedlimit on highways is strange. The Police is waiting in many checkpoints only to catch the "rich" foreigners. No problem 20 € - 50 € is nothing for me.
Prostitutes along the road also wants my money.But i hope this changed with the new motorways. Normally i fly with Turkish Airlines from Frankfurt to Istanbul.This is my first driving after 5 years. I remember the old situation.

Three things:
1. In Germany only on motorways there are no speed limits. And there are sections on which you do have them.
2. Speed limit on highways(1x2 national roads) is 90kmh in Bulgaria and 140kmh on motorways. Your memory is misleading you
3. You do seem like a man with no problems.
