Verso, itīs simply not true, I praise some things of my counry but donīt put down things of other countries whenever I have the possibility. Just read and youīll see that whenever he has the possibility he puts down something in Bulgaria.

I don't see anything nationalistic in his post. We are talking about the Netherlands and Bulgaria. I disagree with his post and that's it. It's a simple matter of information and nothing nationalistic.

And btw, your post about the Netherlands not caring for the wildlife is plain wrong too, so don't come after my post pretending like it's keber who's the wrong here. Both countries have too much of a different history and geography to even try comparing them.

Oh yeah, and btw Slovenian highways are by the saying indeed very good. I don't see how you could attack him with this, let alone WHY you would do it? Critics are a good thing and you have to learn accepting them when they are reasonable.

dia, the nationalistic thing is that he starts being negative towards Bulgaria with no reason, I said that in the Netherlands they obviously donīt care about wildlife and he of a sudden said whatīs in Bulgaria, was the Netherlands the topic or bulgaria?

No, signalization and numbering of roads is very bad and we only use E numbers, but we donīt have so many roads that people donīt get familar with them fast. Instead of numbers we say the road/motorway to Sofia or Plovdiv for example.

a far as i know, Bulgaria has it's numbering scheme, but they don't use it at signs. and i'm not sure for motorways if they have numbers. E79 (Pernik - Blagoevgrad - BC Kulata) is road number 1.

Yes, picture would be nice. In whole thread there was no mention about that, more or less Struma-talk only. Then you get idea, that other motorways in Bulgaria are nothing compared to Struma, if you listen to Radi only.

I saw few pictures of other motorways in Bulgaria and I was impressed (Hemus especially). But Struma left me cold.

Yes, there are numbers for the roads but hardly anyone uses them. The European numbering is widely used though.

I have no pictures unfortunately. And I've rarely seen highway maniacs in Bulgaria going through the roads taking pictures. It's yet to come I believe

I've never traveled through Struma, but Trakia is nothing special on it's older part. I guess the new is much better, at least from the shorts videos I saw, it looks like it's the case. Hemus is nice indeed.

I am sorry you are searching for viacuts? Hm I guess I can only offer the usual pictures..





This on Hemus motorway. Latter this evening I can make a little search for more picture. I hope someone made..

This is Plovdiv and not a highway (not sure though, it looks "different from above )

Well, this is "nadlez Rodopi" and it's VERY useful. Its construction lasted SO long, people thought it won't get finished any time soon. But after the big crisis, things got better and better and here it is. This is a picture when it was brand new, now I guess it lost a bit of it's cool effect

keber, I will! Latter this evening

Why, how old is it, the E79 asphalt has the same color and that after 7 years, we had a conversation about that today with a women, she said that the quality Italian Asphalt Dupnica - Kulata is like brandnew after 7 years and thatīs a very good job of the Italians, I am wondering how the roads there are.

I can't. I dont think anyone would find this very awesome. It's just a 2 level interchange between a motorway and surface road. And the motorway is built on a viaduct. But it looks well constructed.

Maybe it was built to a high standard in the first place, with a well prepared road base, good drainage and pavement. Since then, perhaps traffic volumes have not been really high and the climate benign, with few frosts or little snowfall, which tend to be hard on road surfaces.

Just my guess...

Probably. Traffic volumes have been pretty high, though; that's the main route between Dallas and Houston. Rain would be the main climate issue, with the temperature in that area rarely getting below 25 F (-5 C).

Here, there are highways with trees in the median.

This is a pic of I-84 in a rural setting probably 40km east of Hartford. In some highways, there are whole small forests in the median too...this is common all over the US.
