I'm planning to go to Rila next year or in 2009, I've never seen it and the road to my favorite Romanian resort Busteni has become clogged with trucks. Also, from my location, it is the nearest mountain nearing 3000 m.

And now I can take a shortcut through Serbia, on the nice and quite comfortable Autoput Beograd - Nis, they eliminated the visas for us!

But even though I'm sure Rila is very beautiful, I still think Mont Blanc is unique for Europe. I was really impressed by the scale of the mountains near the Chamonix valley, my neck was starting to hurt from looking upwards - from some viewpoints you really have to stretch it in order to see the summits ! The camera can't fully capture the beauty and scale, you have to go there to experience it!

I doubt I will go and visit it soon since I don´t have much money to go in this expensive region. Anyway I don´t want compare Rila with the Alps but I can tell ya that if you go close to the slopes and are more inside the mountain where the valleys got deep already you always have to look upwords always on every slope, not to talk if you go close to the rockwalls, why don´t you check out my thread in the eastern europe section?

Really a curious HDR. You can see cars twice or even three times (yes, I know, bracketing).

Talking about the BP, there are many problems due to the lack of emergency lanes?
Not real probleme

The Peripherique is one of most populated expressway in Europe around 800 homeless live here.

Great, the A40. Very nice scenery. Sadly I've only driven in direction Chamonix.

The A51, because it looks very shiny and modern.

Yes may be in 2020 or 2030 when the A51 will be extended...

Why didn't they build extra lane? It doesn't seem that it would cost so much more.


What is the difference between those two center markings?

And what happened here, that this difference does not exist anymore?

Because we are 30km far from Grenoble (Monestier de Clermont) just after the beginning of the highway and before the 2 lanes brigde and tunnel. This part of the highway has been opened this spring.





EDIT: Oups, I didn't well read your question...

I don't know this 'autoroute': but I suppose this is provisional, waiting the end of some infrastructure as that tunnel they were building in another pic here

In France the 'more dense' marking on motorways means you're not allow to change lane in the run
It's normally used close to the exits for the lane on the right: probably there is an exit ramp just on

And this is a mistery according what I just said

Wait... they use that marking even for stepped stretches on reduction (always not to allow lane changing)

Probably this is the case: in the first pic reduction is quite stepped, and in the second one it is not, so they thought to delete the marking they previously traced

In France the close dashes mean "beware if you change of lane", usually after/before a ramp, or on a dangerous stretch of road...

The second tunnel has already been built, for the moment it is used as a security tunnel.

The picture has been taken on the "roof" of a tunnel. As juanico says it indicates a possible danger.
