When it's so short, why not completing it ASAP? :P

I prefer to see 60-70 km. of 2x2 brand new expressway between Vidin and Montana than this one in the near future. It would be a lot more important for our economy and development.

Vidin-Botevgrad and Russe-Stara Zagora are planned for express ways 2x2. Fairly enough , regarding the fact that the Danube lays between the two countries and currently only the bridge Giurgiu-Russe is operational and it is only with 2 lanes for the both directions. Hopefully the bridge Vidin-Kalafat will be ready in 2-3 years with a capacity of 2x2 so an expressway between Vidin and Botevgrad will serve perfectly the trafic needs.

A5 is the so called Lyulin Motorway

from wiki:

Quote:
Lyulin motorway is intended to provide a link between Sofia Ring Road and South-West Bulgaria as well as Greece and Macedonia. It is named after Liylin mountain that the road is crossing through. The constructing work began in January 2007, and according to the schedule will be completed in 3 years period. It will provide link between Sofia and Struma motorway. The latter one is going to be the main transportation corridor in South-East Bulgaria. Despite it's only 19 km long, Liylin is the most expensive road ever build in Bulgaria. Total estimated price will be 148,5 Million Euros, or 7.8 Million per kilometer. There will be 3 tunnels as well as 26 bridges and viaducts with total length of 6km.
Struma's start point is this Daskalovo junction near Pernik. Probably some time in the future from Daskalovo will be starting another motorway in direction towards Macedonia, so that is why A5 and A6 are marked as different on the map

It is good to see finally an accurate looking map. What is the combined lenght of the current motorways? (That are operational now.)

They are currently upgrading the Sofia ring road and adding extra lanes (3 in each direction as far as I know). So far only about 10% of the construction is completed. It's quite expensive and I'm sure it will take quite a while before it's completed. I read somewhere that they spent 20 million EUR for 4km.

That's not very expensive... There are roads that cost 100 million per kilometer.

2007 was quite good for the motorway construction in Bulgaria. Does anyone know if any new sections are scheduled to be opened for traffic in 2008?

It is quite expensive compared to other projects in Bulgaria. The reconstruction of the Dan Ryan highway in Chicago came up to almost a billion dollars for 11.2 miles (18km) but it would be hard to compare to the Sofia ringroad since Dan Ryan was made with concrete which more expensive than asphalt and has no less than 14 lanes

It should be done by 2012 but I would expect some delays.

Verso, how did the highway construction in Slovenia go? Were there any major delays or cost overruns? The infrastructure projects in Slovenia and Croatia are often shown as an example of efficiency in Bulgaria.

There have been lately (very strong Slovenian construction lobby) and no motorway has been opened in almost two years (and just a few in the last three years), so if the long-expected boom doesn't happen this (and the next) year, I'll piss off.
