Niš - Dimitrovgrad

Two days ago I drove from Beograd to Sofia. The Bela Palanka bypass is now open to traffic at a length of maybe 20km (I didn't pay attention to the odometer). I was very surprised with the very bad quality of the pavement which was full with potholes, partially really deep, like the road has been used for decades. Also it was raining and at least in six locations there were dangerous lakes of water on the pavement. I hope there will be final works and they will be better than the current ones. I can't imagine that the road will be delivered as it is now.

The last layer of asphalt is missing there.Hence the potholes and the speed limit...

It's missing? It went missing? Nope! It was never put there in the first place! Good for nothing populist crooks were trying to open the motorway section in time for their elections campaign this year, so screw the final asphalt layer! No wonder people are dying on this stretch these days.

'Yello
Did they open part of Pirot-Dimitrovgrad today?I saw info somewhere that this was the plan?
Also, on A1 after BG, direction Nis, do we still check-in at the old toll station or already at the new one?I know they diverted traffic around Vrcin, but not sure about tickets/ENP.

Oh and yeah, during today's events that marked the anniversary of Novi Sad's liberation from Nazi Germany, it was announced that some form for funding has been set aside for long delayed Subotica bypass road. Works are expected to commence immediately.

By the end of October because the new contract deadline is 31st October. I found a news article reporting that the autoput is announced to be opened on 31st October.

as per the latest info from the construction sites (and not the government-controlled media nor the propaganda-website of "krodiori srbije"), the section pirot-dimitrovgrad will have to wait for the dimitrovgrad bypass section to be partially opened as a "semi-motorway" and the plan for that to happen is the very end of the year.
the contractor in charge of dimitrovgrad bypass (aktor) is working hard now (after practically doing nothing for months), especially in those hills above the village of Gradine (close to the border) which need to be dynamited,
but it will depend on the weather as well...

How is the condition of the road at the Bulgarian side? It is really weird that 2 big and significant European capitals which are located in relatively close distance one another, are not connected via a good highway.

From the borders to Slivnica (a 26 km section) it is 1+1 with a few curves, most of them immediately after the borders. From Slivnica to Sofia it is another 22 km of a 2+2 regular road (not grade separated), almost straight to the Sofia ring road. Altogether 30 min driving from the borders to the ring road.

Thanks. So if I understood correctly the biggest issue is the part between the borders and Nis. According to goggle maps it must be around 1h 30 min driving on a bad road.

The road is absolutely fine I would say, just seems narrow after x00km's of motorways, when you come from the West.After you pass the fist 20km in the gorge, it's no strain at all to drive on it..And it takes much less than 90mins between the end of the motorway at Nis and the border crossing.

So the story about the deep potholes is it true or not? Even if it takes less than 90 minutes, for a distance of around 100km between Nis and the border, even an hour of driving is too long for the road to be justified as highway.

There are some uneven stretches, here and there, especially on the motorway stretch around Bela Palanka. But I wouldn't say the road generally is in bad shape.

Couldn't help but chuckle a bit ...

I guess most of you know what Serbs are like

Food is one of life's priorities. Portions are important. The more meat, the better.

Hence, while motorways are yet to be completed, people are already discussing where good grub can be had along them...

So, it turns out "Kod Miće" is good pit-stop:

Cough cough, it's "Kod Mića", since the guy is Mićo, instead of Mića.
