I believe there are plans to introduce an electronic tolling system for trucks (and maybe cars in the future too).

These are for traffic counting. More than 100 are being placed in the country on major roads and motorways.

Is it true that according to the plan the whole road from A2 to Vidin will look exactly like the Montana bypass? (i mean 2X2 with-or wthout-emergency lane)

Yes, that's the plan. Eventually it will end as a 2x2 expressway (without emergency lane).

Maritsa motorway (A4), lot 1 (Chirpan-Dimitrovgrad). Pics by harry_gg










Some unofficial info: in the end of Oct the lot will enter in service, but in the stretch b/n 28 and 36 km only of the carriageways will function and the other one probably will be completed in Nov. IMO if that happens, it will good enough, as lot 1 will finally make the link b/n Trakia motorway (A1) and the already completed segment of A4.

Its not an expressway, its 3-lane single carriageway.

Hmm, thank you for the information.

What do you mean with "carriageway" ?

Is the acutal situation of the 3-line road the finished situation?
Will it always stay until now in that way?

That means no median separation between the lanes going in different directions; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carriageway

Thanks. I think it's the section b/n the railway bridge west of Krum and road 506 at the end of lot 1 / beginning of lot 2?

The length of lot 1 is 31.4km and the length of lot 2 is 34.2km. If I'm right, the Dimitrovgrad interchange is not exactly at the beginning of lot 2 but about 2km east of it. That's what I measured on OSM and that's what's specified on wikipedia. It means, the length of section 1 is 33.8km and the length of section 2 is 31.5km. Correct?

That said, I think I should correct my list as follows:

A4: Dimitrovgrad Harmanli 31.5km (July 2011 to 28th May 2015) project map
A4: Chirpan Dimitrovgrad 33.8km (October 2011 to Late October 2015) [~8km 1st c/w only] project map
A4: Krum west of Dimitrovgrad ~8km (October 2011 to November 2015) [2nd c/w] project map

It's already mostly 2+1 and it will remain like this for the time being! It's not planned to upgrade the road.

Its just a speculation right now, as we don't have anything official and my guess is that we'll get more info not earlier than mid of Oct.

Lot 1 is from km 5+000 до km 36+400, Lot 2 - from km 36+400 to km 70+620.

If i might lead the common interest back from construction of new sections to those in service (for long time):

When i drove parts of eastern A2 and almost complete A1 in August, i found that correlating with the age some parts had a real rough surface. Especially older "Tries" to repair seemed to lower the standard very much.

We had a lot of discussion about the german illness of building motorways but giving not enough money to keep them in good shape. How does this work in Bulgaria? Its more easy to build with EU funding than to keep with state budget right

I went to Sipka monument (and the rotting budzludzha also). Werent there plans to improve the north-south road 5 in these mountains? I know these road 5 should be upgraded in general, but where would works start? The romanian way ist to beginn where its easy and leave the mountain passage for later. In Poland at some places its the other way around, where works started at most dangerous and difficult sections

What about the "coastal" road wich is flat north of varna but time-taking between burgas and varna? (and south of burgas of course but less important there)

Connection to Serbia seems to improve in comparison to connection to poor macedonia. Is there a favoured route for upgrades? I took 62 Dupnitsa-Kjustendil and 6 until the border, which seems to be flatter then 6 north of Kjustendil.

What about Dobritsch, the biggest city far away from any main road?

No deadline because there is no contract for the entire expressway b/n A2 and Vidin. In addition, there's no building permit and no funding. Only Montana bypass is u/c atm, deadline is October 2015.
