Sure man, it´s Strumatic. Btw, the river the motorway is called after originates from that mountain on the pic.

This is the typical Bulgarian pavement they use lately, not very dark, Usually it is smooth, but Ilike darker pavements more, the Struma and E-79 pavements, which are built by Mavrovo Skopie are very similar and if there is no dust they are darker

That exit looks very bad designed, total lack of a decent deceleration lane

It looks just like an ordinary highway, nothing special about it. Very good perhaps for Bulgarian standards, but just normal for Western-European standards.

Aktually when I see this car pics the motorway still looks extrodinarily good and I am sure if they would clean the crashbarriers they will shine again, it´s still THE motorway. Not to forget it´s smoothness which is really extrodinary.

Yes radi, it has a smooth surface. But there are much more other roads in Europe who have a smooth road surface. Still, it looks nice.

I really start to think the Struma is not a motorway, but an expressway (there is little difference between them though). The exits, low speed limit, pavement, spatial environment doesn't really looks like the other motorways in Bulgaria.
