If that's not shiny, then I'm the pope:

And those on the picture shine only, because sun and photocamera were on right angle. Then many things shine that way.

This crashbarrier is new, it doesn't shine so "intensely", but looks better than those on Struma M. I'm sure you agree, but you don't admit.


And sorry, but to me, good taken pics give more impression of the motorway than some homemade handheld video. And pics dind'nt impress me. Struma is just an average new European motorway, nothing more.

Okay Keber, how are the bridges like on your motorways, i will show you how proper bridge must look:



These are small but there are longer ones on that motorway, it has four of them and they look kickass IMO. And Keber, it might be an average motorway for you but it is the best one in Bulgaria.

In your face, radi!



Got a heart attack yet?

And to answer your question - no, it is not an Albanian landstraße
Honestly, you're obsessed with I-80 in the Sierras, which passes through the harshest climates in America. What's the deal with that?

You can't tell because of the lighting, but see those shiny guardrails? They're SOOOOOOO reflective, you can see yourself in them like a mirror!
In the past I've seen people stop and comb their hair while looking into those shiny, shiny crash-barriers.
Also:
Does Bulgaria have any motorways this wide?
By the way- that's not even an Interstate highway- just a state route in American suburbia.
I'm sure they must be building something twice as big and twice as shiny...but hey....what're ya gonna do?

In Spain they have extremely black asphalt, sometimes a bit too much.

Not that I care, but that's what I call shiny motorways.

Oh Verso, i am sorry i can´t deliver you the shiniest motorways of the world, still the Struma motorway is shiny, the rainpic does it show properly, especially when it rains the crashbarriers get cleaned and lighten up again.

and did you forget this pic, here you can see it better how the motorway looks like as bgrs has a good canon camera and not an bad Kodak.

It's even quite narrow. No place to park your car safely in times of breakdown.
