can someone provide me an information, how it is looking on bulgarian- greek borders? Is that full of refugees? Is that even open? I've heard something about some measures (fences, etc.)

Thanks

Itīs open. A month ago we had a border blockade by Greek farmers and counter-blockade by Bulgarian freight drivers, but now the farmers are on the field, so everything's fine.

Finally financing is allocated for the second Kazichane bridge at the eastern arc of the Sofia ring road. Finishing it will allow bypassing Sofia on dual-carriage roads b/n A1 and A6 motorways.

In this video you can see that the old carriageway is demolished.

Okolovrasten pat Blvd b/n Alexandar Malinov Blvd & A1 i/c is already a dual-carriageway?

No, two segments of the south arc still are not upgraded: Mladost - A1 and Lyulin - Boyana.

The cloverleaf interchage at Sofia Ring Road and the Northern Bypass. The pic is taken by the SSC_BG drone at an altitude of 110 m. It's maybe the largest I/C in BG...

The underpass in the second video is located at the road to Trebich. It is causing some problems to the traffic. The Sofia municipaly has to build a new boulevard, but still no funds are allocated.

No collector roads unfortunately.

It may not seem urgent now, but when traffic volumes increase it becomes a safety issue and may prove very expensive to correct after it is built.

Are these sections planned to be upgraded to motorway standard?

Yes. Both have conceptual designs. Probably Mladost - A1 will be upgraded first, here's an article about this segment. Boyana - A6 is more expensive to build, as it will feature a tunnel and viaduct.

Yes it should, but regardless you'd be better off picking a route north of Sofia. The southern route goes through densely populated area and traffic jams are a regular event during peak hours.

Man, this has been taking quite some time. In September 2013 I drove on the bypass twice: first I took the South route (www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDDNBKYn9xo), which was not so bad, but then when I returned from Greece, I took the North route - bad, bad decision.
Won't be travelling this summer, but maybe next year I'll be there. Hopefully the whole "ring road" will be finished by then.

You're right though there's an even bigger issue with the project: the Sofia municipality isn't doing much to actually develop the connections with the local traffic, for instance there are no actions taken for the construction of "Iliantsi" and "Rozhen" boulevards that are supposed to be the access roads for traffic to/from this part of Sofia.
