Is the estimated completion date still realistic? Any update? Any idea about numbering?

What's about Mariza motorway? Recent info was about Chirpan-Harmanli only. What's about the completion of the 2nd carriageway Svilengrad bypass?

The tempo of construction is slow. We'll have to wait for a new deadline to be announced.

According to some forumers it's almost ready, but I cannot be specific about the opening date.

RIA announced tender for construction of 2x2 bypass of Pomorie, at major road I-9 (b/n Burgas and the Sunny Beach resort). The bypass is about 6 km long. Also 5 km of the existing road will be upgraded to 2x2. However, the intersections will be at-grade, so it cannot be classified as an expressway according to Bulgarian legislation.

RIA has announced tender for drawing conceptual design.

From April 1, the speed on certain sections of Trakia and Hemus motorways will be limited to 90 km / h. The aim is to improve the traffic safety in older sections of motorways that due to insufficient financial resources have not been refurbished since their construction and flooring are badly worn.

The restriction will be introduced to the following sections:

Trakia motorway from km 63 + 000 to km 90 + 197 and km 119 + 760 to km 133 + 112 - on the territory of Pazardzhik and Plovdiv;
Hemus motorway from km 349 + 820 to km 369 + 320 / right carriageway / and from km 349 + 820 to km 376 + 119 / left carriageway / - on the territory of Shumen and Varna.

The PM said that 50 million euro will be allocated for reconstruction of old segments of Trakia and Hemus motorways, which are in a really bad shape.

We hope so and an extension to A4 looks natural (though expensive, because of the Balkan mountain), but let's first build VT-Ruse. Financing still is not secured.

Are you planning to visit Greece via BG?

The last deadlines given by the officials say "yes" to your question, but I wouldn't rely much on this. Still a lot needs to be done at both stretches.
