A2 Hemus Motorway

Construction of Hemus Motorway Might Be Suspended

Bulgaria’s Road Infrastructure Agency (RIA) might have no other choice but to suspend the construction of Hemus Motorway meant to link Sofia and Varna, if the state fails to pay the contractor “Motorways – Black Sea” the overdue BGN 8 m (about EUR 4 m) for the work done on the major route. The company is yet to receive a total of BGN 12 m for “Hemus” and other infrastructure projects from the Bulgarian state, it emerged following a meeting of company and RIA representatives and syndicates on Monday.

If you plan to go towards Greece I recommend the Shipka instead, the detour is not very long and the road is quite ok.

Thanks both of you. I'll better take the Sofia route since my destination is close to Thessaloniki. As for Sofia beltway, should I go west or east to get to A3?

Cheers

if I were you I'll go east, road pavement not so good and construction is in the way ..but anyway you'll skip city traffic, which by my opinion uses much more the west part of the ring road.

It will probably reach a maximum in August when the holiday traffic reaches its peak.

I've been to Thessaloniki some three weeks ago, went trough Makza, some 10 hours of driving in much better conditions than on Kulata (less traffic, more motorway in Greece, the shortest distance in Bg). Let me know if you need any details
As far as Sofia beltway..... west also

But you should mention that it's more expensive considering the tolls in Greece.

On July 6th Vratsa bypass was opened. Maybe it will help as well. It certainly eliminated one very bad section of I-1.

No, it's not.

From Egnatia Odos website:
Quote:
Six (6) toll stations are currently operational on the Egnatia Motorway, at Tyria (Paramythia area of Thesprotia), at Malakasi (Metsovo area), Polymylos (Kozani), Analipsi (Langadas area), Moustheni(Kavala) and Iasmos (Komotini).
The last 3 are east of Thessaloniki.

A1 Trakia motorway


Road Insfrastructure Agency opened the price bids for the reconstructions of ~46 km of A1 motorway.
source (in BG): http://www.api.bg/index.php/bg/presc...ot-am-trakiya/

Also, about a week ago a new interchange opened to traffic at the village of Balgarovo, Burgas Province ( at 352 km).
