I takes some time i think. Think as western Europe countries in the sixties or seventies. We didn't have a motorway connection to Germany until 1965. But some connections to Germany were finished not earlier than the nineties, and some still aren't finished.

Yes, that's a serious problem. And the sad thing is, you would also make a profit if you built continuous motorways from Ruse, Vidin all the way to Kulata, or from Varna towards Constanta, and set a toll system like Croatia - nowadays, many Romanians (especially from Bucharest) spend their vacations in Albena or Greece.

Yes Chris, but we look at Croatia and see that it's possible to build a complex motorway system, including tunnels, viaducts, and electronic signs in less than 5 years if there is enough political will. And that country suffered a lot of losses - in a horrible war! And then we look in our own back yard and realize that RO&BG, in certain places and domains, look like THEY fought a war instead!

Exactly my point of view, i was optimistic when i saw the new section of struma motorway and the new section of another road build this winter but after that it happened almost nothing!!!

I am sad that shit searchengine like google don´t get any results when searching for information about Bulgarian motorways at all, i can´t get any information and any pics of Bulgarian motorways in google, why is that? I am sure there is information and pics in the internet.

google sucks at that always. I finds loads of pics, but not the kind you are looking for. You might wanna search something like flickr, mostly good quality pics there.

the searchengine sucks big time, a good side is www.webshot.com, you can upload pics there and you find always better results as in google.

Update, i read in a magazine that the Struma motorway will e continued this month, i hope it´s ture because you never know and i guess there will be delay. I am looking forword for more kilometers of this futuristic looking shiny motorway with many bridges and hopefully a modern Tunnel.

^ Struma, Struma, Struma. Just kidding, hehe, it's great news! And very nice photos of blue79 on the previous page, I'm surprised that the motorway is 6-laned!

Yeah verso but it´s because this motorway looks very modern, it looks the most modern of all motorways i hav seen, i am not saying it becasue i am bulgarian but because i think so, i don´t know how the Macedonian company did it but i find it looks impressive.

Asphalt

There´s smooth and there´s rough asphalt as i´ve noticed, to drive on it is pretty much the same, but i noticed in Germany new aspahlt looks very smooth, in Bulgaria however new asphalt looks like it has little stones etc in it, i am wodering why. especially when it´s raining the asphalt looks a bit strange to me. On the motorways it´s the same, when the aspahlt is dry it looks smooth but when it is raining it looks like the asphalt is wet and like it´s not very firm

so looks the asphalt when it´s raining.

If I remember correctly, Italy also uses rough asphalt on its motorways.

I have the impression than in Spain they use a much rougher asphalt in autovia (non tolled freeways) than on autopistas (tolled freeways).
The rougher asphalt is not as smooth, but it probably lasts longer(less maintenance needed).

^Maybe because these "stones" inside the asphalt have flat tops but are not so close together.

In many parts of the Italian higways we are using that kind of rough asphalt, to let rain water flow out of the road faster.
This won't make the road dry while it is raining, you should drive with the usual care on wet roads, but it reduces the risk of aquaplaning

good to know, but is this kind of asphalt as stable as the smooth asphalt? than it is even better to sue this asphalt instead of smooth aqua planing asphalt.

There isn't such an evident difference between the two kinds of asphalt... it is stable and resists well to heavy traffic.

I think that the best way to have a stable and durable asphalt is using quality materials, making a solid concrete ground and most of all making a decent work building all this.

Too often we show a lack of quality only due to a bad way of working...

In my city they recently repaved 80% of all streets. They did it very fast and the new asphalt they put is so rough that it is just awful. Although it looks all new and shiny, it provides a much rougher ride than the old smooth asphalt that had a few cracks filled with tar. Here is a picture to show what I mean:

The bulgarian asphalt is smooth to drive on but it looks like it would be very rough when it rains, but maybe all asphalt looks so when it rains, all asphalt has some texture though. But the grid on the Bulgarian asphalt is good.
