The markings are not very good on the new macedonian motorway. It seems macedonian motorways manage to create better motorways in Bulgaria, then in their own country.

I wonder how that looks at times of maximum traffic?
OK I actually know, a bit chaotic, but for a new road (opened few years ago) it should be done much better. As designers/maintainers wouldn't see any other appropriate example in the world.

why aren't the roads looking that great, how came the new asphalt and markings do not look like really new, markings are faded out and new asphalt has fixed areas with potholes.

Because roads don't look new forever, I'm sorry to burst this dream for you, but the Struma expressway will look like that in the future as well.

The C2 came really slow (i think he wanted to turn left too) but he practicly came to a stop. That's enough for passing, at least where I come from. The red light: we thought it was our turn but realised it wasn't. It was my brother driving on the whole of this trip by the way, not me. I realise of course he should have carried on turning and not go straight, but he didn't so that's that.

Oh, Bulgarian asphalt stays black until it breaks. The E-79 nationalraod looks like new after 10 years or more, the asphalt as as dark as new asphalt still and it will not get brighter until it gets holes I guess. But I am more consermed with the markings. The motorway video shows faded markings and according to the people the motorway is new, why are they faded?

The roads you saw in these last three vids are not new. They were exactly the same four years ago when i first drove there. The only new section in these videos is the section near the serbian border at the beginning of the first macedonian video.

Because markings fade in one year considerably except if they are thick (which according to the video they aren't). So you need to renew thin markings every year. Here they obviously did not do that.

Thermoplast markings are a must.

But these must be also done in high quality. I have seen some in lower quality, they get broken in few weeks.

Well as long as we are in a transition which indeed road infrastructure at some points has never been upgraded for 50+ years in the communist time things are quite good. But for those highway projects like the Corridor 8 from Ohrid to Bulgarian border concession is the best that we can get...
