A3: Sandanski – Kulata 15.0km (April 2012 to >= 2015) [contract canceled] – projectmap

I have made calculations we could have up to 134.4 kilometres of newly-built motorways

...
These sections could be opened in 2015, except A3 Dupnitsa – Blagoevgrad, which in fact shows pretty good progress, but it has many interchanges, viaducts and etc. In order to have these sections opened, all we need is a good tempo of construction and no obstacles of any kind such as expropriation, archeology and other issues.

Also, the minister said the Northern Sofia Bypass will be completed in 9 months.

Apart from that, the good news are that the European Council decided that the 2007-2013 EU funds can be utilized in one more year. In Brussels language:

c) underlines that the EFSI will complement and be additional to ongoing EU programmes and traditional EIB activities. In this context the full use of all existing and allocated EU resources needs to be encouraged. The Commission will work closely with the Member States concerned to find solutions to maximise the use of commitments under the 2007-2013 MFF period and recognises the desirability of delivering long-term projects in the years ahead using the flexibility of the existing rules;

Are you sure about that last one? The "Brussels language" it's tricky.

RO version: http://data.consilium.europa.eu/doc/...14-INIT/ro/pdf (It's on the 2nd page - page no. 1 )
BG version: http://www.consilium.europa.eu/uedoc.../ec/146418.pdf

I prefer DE version: http://data.consilium.europa.eu/doc/...14-INIT/de/pdf. But I still don't get it... "desirability"

I don't see the approval for one more year neither in the roumanian version. There was hopes for that here in Roumania, but it was said that the decision was not to extend N+3 rule for 2013 funds, so we'll have to close up in 2015 all the paper work.

The costs are estimated at 222 million euro. 3 tunnels are included with a total length of 2.8 km, many viaducts (~8 km), 4 interchanges, many overpasses and underpasses, 4 rest areas.

60km for €220m would be verrry cheap for a mountain motorway....less than €4m a km.

Yes. For our standards it's just hilly, but for British mountainous is maybe more appropriate. However, the Veliko Tarnovo-Popovo section is a bit hilly as well, although not a much.

There is a chance the bidders may not manage to squeeze into ~3.6mln, e.g. the section Dupnitsa-Blagoevgrad of Struma motorway costs EUR 4.1mln per km.
~4mln is a good price for a hilly terrain is Bulgaria. Our motorway standard is cheaper than most european motorway standards(e. g. Polish, Hungarian), construction materials in Bulgaria are generally cheaper(e. g. rock, soil, bitumen because of Burgas refinery) and our workforce is cheaper as well.

And fuel prices have improved a lot in the last 3 months too....for all that machinery.

There is nothing 'cheap' about Bulgarian motorways...'cheap' implies something is not done correctly and the build standard appears to be very high in Bulgaria. Good value might be the best way to describe them.

The 70km Variante di Valico in Italy will have cost over €50m a km when it eventually finishes. I know it is 2 x 3 and more mountainous overall....but still.

I stand corrected. It is true. Our standards are good and if motorways are built according to them, they are long lasting pieces of infra and safe for decent speeds. However, they miss some small details most of their european counterparts have like protection against lights of incoming traffic and more informative signs.

There is only one viaduct(near Tserovo?) that is under rehabilitation. There are plans for rehabilitation of Pazardhzik - Plovdiv and a small section near Sofia(part of the strange pavement).

These are cheap to add later.

I am somewhat sceptical about the value of a lot of signage in the Universal Smartphone/GPS era we all live in since 2010.

Most motorway network signage schemes were designed pre Smartphone/GPS in Western Europe and a lot of these signs are frankly bordering on being redundant clutter nowadays in Western Europe. You could probably remove half of them and nobody would complain.

Now that free 'offline' maps exist that you download to the phone and which do not require a data connection ( OSMAnd, Here Maps and Garmin Navigon) all you need is around 2Gb of space on your smartphone and you can have the whole road network of Europe downloaded to your phone.

The instructions are given in your own language which is rather handy too.

@MichiH

New deadline for A3 Sandanski-Kulata: 31 July 2015.

We have an unofficial info that Agromah, a Bulgarian company, will complete the remaining works as a subcontractor of Aktor.
