I am also waiting for nice pictures, don't forget to take pics of direction signs on the Struma! I hope you will have a pleasant trip!
I hope it wont need any maintenance soon, if only other roads in bulgaria had such quality and beautiful look the country would look a lot friendlier and not so eastern european like.

What's wrong with the Eastern-European like? Okay, it doesn't have very much welfare yet, but i like you guys to keep your own identity.

The identity happens because the workers donīt work well, on buildings they donīt work well at all, you see bad painted walls, uneven pipelines where the water flows of etc, thatīs all about the eastern european look, I just hate it, a new building which looks nice in the distance but when you look properly you see the bad quality. there are few buldings which donīt have that, on roads they work better but in General they donīt work as good as they did on this motorway.

Not really no. Like I said before, they look exactly like the crash barriers that are present on every duel carriageway (A road) in the UK.

Is this the struma highway it must be a joke?

They're just standard barriers. Just like the ones we have here all over the Netherlands and in so many other countries. I'm afraid that the Dutch ones are somewhat more crash resistant though as the Dutch ones are all double sided regardless of the possition (ie: a barrier on the side of the road is also double sided making it extra thick and heavy). I do agree with you that they are bigger than German ones but most countries don't use the German style barrier. They use the ones pictured

Excuse my ignorance - how are the German ones different?

The German ones are a boxy form instead of the curvey form found in most countries

Oh okay, I thought they used the same sort as every photo I've seen has the same form on it. I've not travelled on the German Autobahns much and when I have, I've not really paid attention to the barriers. Perhaps they were not shiny enough...

Shiny guardrail about to be not so shiny


Whoa, I'm blinded with brilliance


OK, It's starting to hurt now

Shiny guardrails/crash barriers are everywhere. And now to get the thread back on topic.



Old school.
