I saw that the Greek also use rough asphalt even rougher than Bulgarian one on their motorways, it looks rough when it´s dry, i don´t know how ti looks when it rains.

In Sacramento?

No, Sacramento is too large to repave that many streets at once. It is Folsom - one of the many Sacramento satellites (60,000 residents).

I am not sure if its the same thing, but in Ontario, the 'rough asphalt' is a surface treatment called microsufacing which is applied to worn asphalt to extend its life a few years. It offers a much noiser ride, as it is a much coarser driving surface

sonysnob, I think we have exactly that - microsurfacing. They just paved over the old asphalt without any initial preparations.

I believe that the rougher ashfalt is much more durable and also helps to reduce aquaplaning. In the dry though, I think it reduces grip.

I noticed that new german asphalt also looks like wet and easy to remove, only the stones etc inside are bigger in Bulgaria.

The plans are there but i don´t know when they will start working on sofia - Serbian border motorway. They are fixing the current for lamed road with no divider and even extending bridges but i don´t know whether they started and if not when they will start.

But isn't that the main connection between Europe and Asia (Turkey)? How come it's not a priority, what is the traffic there?

Yes, people who are going to turkey are travelling through serbia and ravel on the road to Sofia but there are only 50 km from Sofia to the border. the most improtant priorities for Bulgaria are building the trakya motorway to the sea, the marica motorway to Turkish border and the Struma motorway to greek border.

khm, wrongly set priorities. 50 km is not that less, especially when it's at such important coridor

I am really looking forword, i read in two newspapers that the Struma motorway will be continued in august, two new sections will be built, i read how a Minister said that so it will aktually take place. I thought nothing will happen this year on that motorway but they aktually will continue even this motorway, they are improving roads in the whole country and i was sad because i thought they will do nothing on the Struma, but it´s wrong

i would use the line € 600 mln. And you might wanna place those pictures on the right side of the page, makes the article more readable.

Maybe it's a good idea if you highlight the motorway in the map. You can use programs like the free paint.net for that, works much better than ordinary paint.
