Is it likely that works will begin soon (October/November 2015) or have works already been started?

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

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

It`s started officially. Groundbreaking ceremony was last Thursday. The deadline is 10 months from now.

Sofia ring road II-18: Kakach river – SNST: Trebich (II18) 5.5km (22 October 2015 to August 2016) – project – map

I think concerning this new pictures of the A4 before the opening, that this part of the Highway is not ready to be openend on Tuesday on the 27.October.

This cannot be ready until Tuesday or?

I am certain that LOT 1 will open on tuesday even if there are missing signs, guardrail, surface markings, incomplete drainage in some areas. This has been a trend in Bulgaria lately and it allows the motorway to be opened faster.

Now that elections have passed, it has been decided to wait and open A4 Lot1 later this week.

Nice, there seem to be no interchanges between A1 and Dimitrovgrad? A distance of 31 kilometers between interchanges are more akin to toll roads.

There is no access to A4 for more than 30km.

If _AT refers to Austria, the German word is Anschlussstelle

Ooookay Now i understand
Correct, the Austrian / German word for it is Anschlussstelle


I think for this geographic stiuation in this place it is normal that their is now interchange.

Between Dimitrovgrand and Harmanli is also now interchange, because maybe there is no geographic need for an interchange.
I would say the same for the Lot 1 from Orizovo to Dimitrovgrad.

From where exactly starts the Lot 1 now?
I wonder why there will not be an interchange for the street "66" from Popovitsa to Chirpan. hmmm

Yes that`s strange. In Bulgarian sub forum we are wondering why there is no interchange on the road between Chirpan and Parvomai near Zetiovo. However, there are rumours that they gonna add one near Zlatna livada and the monastery over there but it`s very questionable.
