Still no, I guess that a number will be assigned after the inauguration. I´ve asked RIA about the numbering and they´ve answered that they have to analyse the traffic. Let´s hope that SST will receive a common number with the eastern and western arcs of the ring road.

Reports in Bulgarian media now that 13 km of Northern Speed Tangent will open Monday, December 28th.

Montana bypass also expected to be fully open by the end of the year with finishing works ongoing, although not much concrete info there.

13km? The entire length is 15km and the recently announced partial opening from would have a length of 10km. Generally, length specifications are often inaccurate in media. Sometimes access roads are included. Is there any info about beginning and end of the section to be opened? I guess it's still the 10km section.......

Actually in this case the media reported correctly, a larger part of the SNST Sofia east (A2) - Lazar Mihailov blvd (13km) has been finished.

According to OSM, there will be no interchange at Lazar Mihailov blvd
and Rozhen blvd. That means, there must be temporary accesses to the SNST!?

In what state is the highway/motorway from Sofia to SRB border? The last time I drove it was in 2012, and significant changes since then? When will it be upgraded to full motorway status?

As of this time I have not seen any information about an official opening of the SNST. There has been severe fog in the region today which may have postponed the opening.

No, today in the morning the entrances of its Eastern part at Botevgradsko shosse were still closed. I think it's a good thing not to open it yet. Such a partial oppening would have coused either troubles in these foggy days in Sofia.
