Enjoy your vacation. Most of A1 is good all the way from Sofia to Burgas. Take the north "tangent" to bypass Sofia.

A1 is completed.

Be careful at Ihtiman, a landfill site nearby is burning and combined with fog may cause low visibility on the motorway. Chain-reaction crash occurred there several weeks ago.

A2 motorway. API signed the design and build contract for the 9.3 km Yablantsa-Boaza stretch. The term for implementation is 910 days (of those 180 are for design).

API published the traffic data for 2016. Our fellow nyordanov has done a great job to put all in a map, as the data was published in hundreds of unreadable pdf files:

2.5 years is actually a pretty good construction time. Not many motorways are built in less time without deficiencies.

The officially circulating info is to expect tenders for km 1-15 (kms are counted from the border towards Sofia) and then 32-48(where the short stub already built ends now at the ring road). I think I saw somewhere they would try to build a few more kms borderside, to connect with the already 1x4 part around Slivnitsa.


If they manage that, it would mean we'll have a continuous 4 lane grade-separated route all the way from Km1 to Sofia Ring Road, about 10km of which will not be divided and will be sub-standard.

A week or so ago started the reconstruction of Plovdiv-Asenovgrad road. It will be upgraded to 2x2+e, but the intersections will remain at-grade. The traffic numbers show that this road is one of the busiest in the country.

API signed contract for Pomorie bypass. The stretch is about 6 km long and will be 2x2. However, the intersections will remain at-grade.

Also mentioned in the news on the first national channel tonight, the first 6kms are to start next week.
Along with that, the tender for the Zheleznitsa tunnel will be relaunched and another tender for a part of the road between Kalotina and Sofia is to be launched.

Actually, itīs been relaunched for a second time. There's are pretty good chance that everything about these tenders will go well this time.

--

Here's some road related news in this article:
* API hopes to select contractor for the toll system;
* the environmental decision for the Kresna Gorge still is not ready. The government and the construction chamber both favour this option:

but some NGOs are against and want both carriageways out of the gorge. It's been a long lasting battle, which takes place also at EU-level;
* the minister says the government will build 100 km of A2 motorway in 3.5 years, which won't happen IMHO;
* a 3rd bridge over Danube is needed and in October there will be a meeting with the Romanian government.
