The E-79 between Blagoevgrad and Simitli has broken, because of temperatures til -25 degrees at night the final layer of the 8 year old E-79 asphalt ha got potholes here and there. I will probably go to check the new asphalt Dupnica - Sofia, whether it has gotten potholes or not, but I am sure it hasn´t because it´s different asphalt, the italian Todini asphalt was old and probably that´s why it got potholes. On the other hand there is 20 year old asphalt here and there on the E-79 made by Bulgarians which doesn´t have potholes, it just got rough but doesn´t have potholes, that means that the Italian asphalt was crap.

Do you realise that asphalt is not transported through the entire continent? Italians used bulgarian asphalt just as every other company that operates or builds in Bulgaria. To be precise, usually asphalt factories are built next to u/c motorways,so that it wont cost a lot to transport the material,and later decommissioned when not needed any longer in the area.

I did NOT mess up the Struma article, as you can see in the history of that article.

Now .... I know radi won't be very happy to see this but ...

Some photos and video footage from Hemus Motorway from Bebresh viaduct to east entrance of Sofia taken by me in September

Sorry for the bad quality but it was afternoon and the sun was "shining" directly against the direction i traveled:













































Have a little set of photos from a week ago in winter conditions and will post them here if someone is interested

Looks pretty okay, except that stretch before the tunnel. The scenery is wunderbar.

I will post in a few days(when i have time to upload images) some more recent photos covering almost the whole lenght + the 4 tunnels.

The asphault between Bebresh viaduct and the last tunnel that is seen on the first photos is really old and grey. Currently one of the lanes and the tunnel in that stretch are closed for reconstruction so hopefully they will look better soon.

The tarmak in some other stretches is not so good too - some rifts have appeared due to the long usage of the highway and the lack of care in the wild transition years and they covered them with resin. It is visable on the photos too.

The Sceneray is really amazing - It is the most difficult part of the projected highway from Sofia to Varna. Here it crosses the mountain. The remaining 250 km. would be a lot easier to built as they go mainly through plain field.

The last pic looks awesome, is that in the distance vitosha mountain, the motorway has shiny crashbarriers there. And what bothers me more is that some parts of the E-79 are broken now as I told you yesterday, the 8 year old itanial asphalt obviously was crap, how could it break I´ve no idea, Italians shouldn´t be allowed to build roads in Bulgaria again.

If there are cracks after 8 years, then this is normal.

Depends on budget.

Since we cannot get any road widening or construction done in NL, we usually repave the section because otherwise the budget is not spend
