A funny sight on Hemus motorway[A2] near Devnya:




The transportation line carries limestone to the nearby cement and soda ash plants.

Yes you are right, g-maps already routes the traffic through it.

Although it is already mentioned, if you are coming from A1 and your destination is A3 likewise, you need to drive to the I/C (cloverleaf) where A2 meets the Eastern arc (you are actually moving on). Make sure you turn on that cloverleaf as if you are entering Sofia and after 700-800m you will deflect right on a ramp which leads you to the Northern speed tangent. This is how Sofia is bypassed most quickly and conveniently.

the northern speed tangent should have had the direct connection with the eastern arc (and not through the fukin cloverleaf)...don't now why did they give up on that

Indeed, the initial plan was modified afterwards. After all, three of the four interchanges of the highways (including future A7) with Sofia ring road are implemented with cloverleafs.

So, why does Google Maps still dont show the new openend west section of the sofia ring road as a highway? :/
Does anybody know if google maps will do it?

I heard that the government will also open the last part of the sofia ring road from the highway junction with the A2 until the highway-junction with the A1 also in the end of this year.
Is this true? Is there a fixed date for it?

Because Sofia bypass is a separate unit from the highways orinating from the city. The only exception so far is the northern speed tangent so you can see it on the map as a highway. In order for the western as well as the eastern arc to be also visible, they have to be assigned A0 together with the northern tangent. It makes sense but when this will happen I cannot say. Until then you would probably not see them as highways unless google decides to refer to them as such.

The stretch between the junctions you are talking about is the eastern arc. It is opened for a long time and needs to be resurfaced which won't take place this year. It is a bridge on the 2c/w of the arc which was missing and is going to be completed by the end of the year. All in all, Sofia bypass is almost done with the condition of the mentioned surface renewal.

A0 is not existing, I mentioned it to explain the idea how western and eastern arcs could eventually appear on the maps as highways, in response to BG_AT question. As a matter of fact, all the streches below, which are part of Sofia ring road and take the transit out of the city, are designed as city highways of different grades, thus the speed is less than that of typical highways.

* northern speed tangent: 2x3 active lanes + emergency (speed limit is set to 120kph)

* eastern arc: 2x3 active lanes + emergency (speed limit should be at least 100kph after resurface)

* western arc: 2x3 active lanes only, it partly serves local lanes (speed limit to be decided as there are some discrepancies; should be 100kph)

Hope this helps.

In order for the remaining part of the ring road to be visible in orange, on google maps, Google have to just do it.It doesn't have to do with designating it as A0 or whatever.

Can we force Google maps to do it a bit earlier?
Or help like giving a confirmation for google maps that it has already openend?

I think we need to hold off with the reporting, until the bridge to the east is finished.Once this is done, the whole clockwise stretch from the end of A6(A3), to A1 can be marked as expyway.

I disagree! There is a lack of crash barriers on the eastern arc, as well as not grade separated pedestrian crossings!
