maybe the first one is a snellstrasse b/c it has too short radii...

the second one without emergency lane is only a substandard motorway...

The first one is better. But in Bulgaria that isn´t the case, it´s only expressway becase noone cares and replaces the sign. On the struma MOTORWAY are green motorway signs, so it is a motorway. Patrick, on your pic the expressway has yellow signs.

But the fact that all the signs situated ALONG the road are green, must mean that it is a motorway, mus`nt it? Green is after all the motorway colour in Bulgaria. Also I doubt that it would had those wide shoulders if it was only an expressway.

Radi, would you mind me very much if I'd say that Struma Motorway seems not to be designed in full respect of TEM standards...?

It's just a first impresssion based the picture below (the radius of the curve - to be more exact).

Seems no problem to me. The French A75 south of Millau has much tighter curves.

I edited the previous 3 posts as probably the DB has messed up somehow their order.

Hope you liked the photo report.

In the following days(weeks) i will post also the stretches of [E79] Vratsa-Mezdra(~18 km. of 2x2 Expressway) and Mezdra-Botevgrad.

Great road! So what's correct, Vratsa, Vratza or Vraca? Oh, kerbs are nicely painted, and I've never seen traffic lights turned around like that.

The road is nothing special somehow. They even didn´t replace the very old ugly communist crashbarriers. And somehow it seems the road ages fast. Is it still smooth? Unfortunately it can´t impress me.

correct is Враца Anyway I think that the final latin norm is Vratsa.

@radinho ... I never doubted that you would ever like E79. If it ain't Struma it ain't shit right ? Ain't no mountaian higher than Rila, Ain't no motorway better than Struma ... World wide!

Wrong! Actually the dark asphault is older than the one that looks paler I think that the colour of the asphault doesn't talk about its quality at all.
