Yes I do
somwhere around 1st september...

I used that route last year and realised that the completion of those two sections will greatly improve the jurney via bg

The Bulgarian part of the route is slightly turning into a nice motorway.......I can't say the same about the Greek part, though, as the motorway construction is really slow....as long as you know this route, don't you think that its really disappointing?

it is disappointing that a25(?) from sidrokastro to strimoniko is facing delays,
as I recall, frist the deadline was 2015 and now it is 2016...

but serbia is the champion of delays and sloppy works, so I am pretty much used to that kind of situation...

We are also in same situation....well, not so much in the A25 but in the rest of the Greek motorways....just imagine that most of the motorways currently U/C should have been finished a long time ago....I don't know if the situation is Serbia is better or worse, though....

There is a hard end 2015 deadline for some roads like the Sofia Ring Road and parts of A3 and A4 to get the Eurofunding that should theoretically have come by end 2013. After that you lose the eurofunding and in the case of the A4 I think you lose it entirely with reductions elsewhere under the new rules.

Really nice photos.

Looking forward to finally see this motorway open, because it is going to help the Bulgaria people living in the areas served (and not only them)

Here are some more pics, this time of the Dimitrovgrad/Haskovo I/C. Major road I-5 b/n Dimitrovgrad and Haskovo is dual carriageway (2x2+1), but the intersections at the same level. I hope that it will be upgraded one day to a motorway standard.

Сериозна мобилизация на изкопа на 36-и км. Поне 6 багера копаеха.

A4 Maritsa motorway. While lot 2 (Haskovo-Harmanli) is almost ready and probably will open to traffic withing a month, the situation at lot 1 (A1-Haskovo) doesn't seem that good, especially b/n the bridge over Maritsa river and the end of the lot nearby Haskovo.

the bridge


overpass @26 km


overpass @28 km


@31 km


@32 km Dobrich-Krum road


@33 km


@35 km


bridge over Banska river @36km


the border b/n lots 1 & 2

tnx to vui4o14 and harry_gg

So it seems that this year we should have 135 km of new highways (without the northern bypass of Sofia which wont be ready as well as Montana bypass which will be an express road 2x2).

IMHO, every project from Kakach river including to the end of the list might be delayed for 2016. The only exception is A2 section, which is progressing well.

A4 Maritsa motorway, lot 2 is almost ready to open.

@52 km






The main efforts are concentrated to finish Dimitrovgrad/Haskovo I/C (@I-5 road). It's one of the biggest interchanges in BG, with separate collector carriageways on both levels.




...and @the small stretch b/n the I/C and the beginning of the lot, which is not so important at this moment, because it will stay unused till the launching of lot 1.

Is the plan for a 15.5 km Kresna Tunnel completely cancelled?

Authorities are updating the cost-benefit analysis for it. They are looking into the possibility of scraping the project and building a 2x2 sub-substandard(100kmh max) expressway. But the new project might meet opposition from environmentalists.

A4 Maritsa motorway full length:






A2 Hemus motorway Panayot Volovo – Belokopitovo:


10x to REAKT0R.

Hi everyone, I am planning to travel through Bulgaria this summer with a few friends. We are driving to Transfagarasan in Romania and we are going to enter Bulgaria in Promachonas-Kulata and exiting either at Oryahovo or at Nikopol

I am following the detailed map at http://dev.ivanatora.info/roads/, I cannot decide which route would take less time or have nicer views? Road classification seems the same more or less. Thank you in advance!

Hi,
in terms of road quality both routes are the same. I personally would take the route to Oryahovo, as the ferry betwenn Oryahovo and Becket operates more often that the one at Nikopol - Turnu Marurele and works non stop /day and night/. Llast time a drove from Turni Magurele to Pleven /a couple of years ago/ I arrived at 21:00 at the harbour in Turnu Magurele and the next ship was to departure the nex day. More over the Romainian colleagues suggested you the Bechet - Craiova rout as beeter to Turnu Magurele - Slatina!
