Archaeological site. AFAIK it's probably a neolithic village.

I watched the other videos, and I founded that, there aren't one or two, or even three (at least to me), but FOUR!

EIA for Friendship bridge/Ruse - Veliko Tarnovo motorway[A8] is ready. The purple route was chosen:

One more map. Here it is the orange route:

Hmm actually from looking the published EIA documents on the website of our road agency, it seems that they plan the motorway to start between Ruse and Marten, where it seems a new bridge over the Danube between BG and RO ends.

Does "Ready" mean "done"/"finished"?

What's the next step expected, tender procedure?

Is there any info about the length of the motorway or if it is planned to be built in sections?

In addition, I think "A8" is not (yet) official like "A7" for Kalotina motorway, is it?

The experts in our Ministry of Environment and Water have finished their assesment of the project. 3 options were submited, changes have been made and the "combined" option has been recommended. Now the EIA is going to be presented in the affected towns and villages along the route.
In that sense the whole procedure is not technically "finished". However, delays and objections are not expected for this project.

Expropriation. Then tendering as design&build.

The EIA is for 132km.
It would certainly be split into several lots.

Hmm...I can't remeber if we had an official document where the motorway is called A8. I tried finding one but I wasn't successful.
A7 is official:

We should assign A3 to Lyulin motorway. It's only extending Struma with less than 20 km. And the Sofia Northern Bypass has to be designated.

A video from the new proposed route(blue on map) of Struma motorway[A3] lot 3.2(the old project included a 15km tunnel):




This is the "ecology friendly" option.

Great news! Glad to see our neighbours making progress in planning this vital link between our countries. I'm somewhat confused by the large and curvy detour the motorway takes north of Byala. Is the terrain really that bad there that makes a straighter road impossible? Ok, I can understand there is a wide valley there on the river Yantra and the road is sticking to the hills (situation similar to our A3 west of Cluj, at Gilau, only yours is worse). But in that case the road shouldn't have made a detour that close to Byala, it should have been more to the west and straighter, I reckon. Oh well, I hope the speed limitations there won't be too severe...

Also, I'm guessing the motorway crosses Rusensky Lom at it's narrowest and shallowest point, is that correct?
And lastly, since a new bridge near Ruse is still a long way away (and maybe secondary to other non-existant Danube crossing, IMO), I suppose there will be an interchange with the local road there, 21. Do you think it will have enough capacity for all the car and truck traffic going to the existing bridge (via the -hopefully- former border check-point)?


PS: on our side, there is no Giurgiu high-speed road being planned yet, since our DN5 still has capacity, but I'm happy that a new road is being planned that will bypass Giurgiu and Remus all the way to the borderpoint. Also, the tender for A0 south is underway, so the current awfull bypass of Bucharest will no longer be an issue. And neither will be Jilava, as the interchange will be south of it, so one less 5km long village to go through. Sadly, there are no solutions for 1 Decembrie and Calugareni

They really should have chosen the blue route as it is the most direct.

The chosen route follows the railway which takes a rather circuitous route from Byala to Borovo due to the severe terrain in the area.

Regarding the route of the future motorway Ruse-V.Turnovo, it is not decided yet. The "recommended" one looks weird, there is certain interest to push the route towards municipalities which lie aside. Definitely the blue trace is the most efficient. Probably next February the route will be known.
As for the new bridge near Ruse/Giurgiu, it is a natural continuation of the motorway on Romanian ground. It is high time to move forward with the bridges along Danube. Below are the studies carried out by Transproject with the red variant being the first choice. The new bridge at Ruse is not visible here, its exact location is planned to be 3 km eastward from the current narrow bridge. It will approximately pass above the width of Mocanu island.

The contract for the toll system is to be signed tomorrow. Source

The contract for a new toll system in Bulgaria was signed today. It will be build by Kapsch for circa 150 million BGN (circa 75 million EUR). There will be an electronic toll system for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes and an electronic vignette system for cars. For now, the idea is to keep the prices for cars low, while increasing the tolls for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes. The estimations are that this will result in about 1 billion BGN (circa 500 million EUR) revenue compared to about 350 million BGN (circa 175 million EUR) revenue from the current old-fashioned vignette system with stickers. The current plan is for the system to operate from early 2019.

This should allow for greater investment in much-needed infrastructure, such as completing the Hemus motorway, a new motorway between Ruse and Veliko Tarnovo, an expressway between Botevgrad and Vidin, a tunnel between Northern and Southern Bulgaria below the Shipka Pass (between Gabrovo and Kazanlak) etc.

I would not say that vignette price is that low for passenger cars
7 day is 8 eur when in Romania it's 3 eur

The vignette prices would not be changed, according to the Bulgarian Ministry of Regional Development. I'm not really sure why on API's English language website they show the prices in EUR. Those are in fact the prices in BGN. A weekly vignette for passenger cars currently costs 8 BGN or about 4 EUR. See here in Bulgarian: http://www.api.bg/index.php/bg/vinetni-stikeri It is, of course, contrary to EU law to have different prices for vehicles registered in other EU member states. I guess they've just made a mistake... I sent them an email to fix their error
