You said, that you noticed bumps over bridges. As there are no long bridges, I wonder, how on new perfect motorway you can feel bumps on short bridges?

Also, bumps don't have any connection to surrounding terrain. Hills or plains, it doesn't matter.

Not bumps but just not 100 percent even road, bumps are nowhere, and what do you want I don´t get, the roads are extremly smooth, you don´t feel anything even on old buses so what do you want.

Ofcourse there are no bumps, it would be rather weird on a brand new motorway.

However, a 2x2 road in my city (not a motorway) has been repaved lately, but it has been done terrible, very uneven, if you drive the speed limit (70km/h) it feels like you have a flat tire. It isn't bumpy, but it's just not smooth.

Cheap is not always the best...

and guys, I don´t think crappy motorways have great markings, great signs, great asphalt and reflective things between the middlecrashbarriers, I aktually thing no motorway has reflective things in the middle of the motorway, I don´t mean the red things sticked to the crashbarriers but other extra things which reflect in red, similar to airport runways.

Please replace the word "Great" with the word "Regular". The stuff you showed us is nothing different from other new motorways around the globe.

what's so special about reflectors? They may not be used much where you've been but in many countries reflectors (cats eyes) are very widely used. Far more than anything you've shown. I don't see anything remarkable about the Struma. And that exit does not look like something on a new motorway. It looks like a typical, cheapo, 1950's job.

I might go to Sofia again in a week so be careful, I will take my camera and focus on the exits, I will take pics of the best exits with two exitlanes leaving the motorway, than you´ll see.

New pictures, great! More Struma pics are always welcome!

BTW, most Italian roads (not only motorways, but regular national roads - at least in the northern part of the country ) also have markings and reflectors that resemble an airport runway.

Maybe but italy is a rich coutry and for Bulgaria it´s something innovative because look, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and so on don´t have them.

you're talking about ''cats eyes'' on the road right?
If that's the case then you're right that most european countries don't have them
Generally in countries/ regions where they need to plough snow the winter they don't use them.

Yes, but neither has them Struma motorway. He talks about reflective things on crashbarriers. Those are cat eyes on them. And they are present everywhere in Europe and beyond.

If radi talks about cat eyes on road markings, then I'm mistaken. But cat eyes were not seen yet on any of photos of that gorgeous motorway.

No, I´m talking about stuff similar to what x-type showed, just that they are between the two middlecrashbarriers.



They look somehow like this and reflect in red, the reflective things on crashbarriers have the smallest countryroads, even.

Yeah. I did'nt see any catseyes on the road either. Gets a bit confusing with all these amazing features on the Struma. Can you follow it? I can't

what would actually be the right purpose of cat eyes between crash barriers and why are they more advanced than those integrated to crashbarriers?
