The construction of the Northern Sofia Bypass (16.5 km, 5 interchanges + many bridges, 2x(3+1) lanes) is about to start. However, many issues remain, such as expropriation, archaeology and a short deadline for utilizing the EU funds.

Are these to be completed soon? It's not that much of a distance.

Off-topic: can't help noticing Sofia looks (much) better in terms of ring-road implementation than Bucharest; the Romanian capital has only 1/3 of the north ring modernized.....

Bulgaria Plans Construction of Ruse-Veliko Tarnovo Motorway

Bulgarian Regional Minister Lilyana Pavlova said that the government plans to construct a motorway rather than a high-speed road between Ruse and Veliko Tarnovo.

The motorway, which is estimated to cost BGN 870 M, will have a length of 110 kilometres.

The project was submitted and applied for funding under the Investment Plan of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
Full report: http://www.novinite.com/articles/166...rnovo+Motorway

Any speculation on a road number for this motorway? So far they appear to be applied chronologically. The next one would be A7 but I also read that number would be used for some kind of motorway near the Rila Mountains (Dupnitsa - Mirovo). But I haven't heard anything about this project for years.

It's not an official designation yet.

As for Ruse-Tarnovo, the only thing sure at this stage is that conceptual design will be drawn. Financing is not secured (the Juncker plan is some form of PPP). The good news is that Ruse-Tarnovo will be designed as a motorway. The previous statements were for an expressway.

The A3 will be ready when the longest road tunnel in Europe is completed at Kresna Gorge down near Greece. That will take at least 3 years and has not even started yet.

In addition to the answer above - This section (Dupnitsa - Blagoevgrad) along with the section Sandanski - Kulata (BG-GR border) will be ready summer-autumn 2015.

2/3 of LOT 3 (the remaining part of the motorway) are tendered and soon the contractor will be chosen.

The other 1/3 - the 15 km tunnel has not been tendered yet and there are heavy discussions in Bulgaria about it and ways for it to be replaced with a combination of viadicuts and tunnels because of its high price (around 400 - 500 mln EUR)

Yes, I know that the Kresna tunnel (almost 15 km) in length will be the longest in Europe.
And I believe that both Bulgaria and Greece will me benefited from the A3.
By the way, how long are the sections to be completed in the summer???

Actually that will be the longest TWIN road tunnel in Europe ...there are longer single bore tunnels already.

The total Kresna section will be over 20km long including the tunnel and approaches but otherwise there will be a continual high quality road from Kalamata in Greece to Budapest/Vienna and beyond by 2017 I think.

That said part of the A25 in Greece is only low/medium quality dual carriageway rather than proper motorway but at least it is 2+2 and a cheap upgrade to motorway some time in future.
