This is also valid for whatever enlargement wave might be next. It will be postponed indefinitely, especially for other Balkan countries, which are even in worst shape in what means rule of law than Romania, Bulgaria or Croatia.

Rule of law? Like when Merkel invited half of Africa to invade Europe via Eastern and Southern Europe, then blamed every country that refused to have its laws broken and allow illegal migrants to cross? Or when companies are allowed to sell second rate, inferior quality products in the East? Or when we are turned into low wage neo-colonies for western companies to "outsource" their operations, while actively working to draw in the best minds out of our countries? All the bullshit about european solidarity, equality, etc is just that. Too bad we dont have politicians that see it as it is.

This is very much off-topic, so maybe we move this discussion to the DLM?

Super off-topic, but also really super-rare that I'd agree with Le Clerk - but here I do.. So, "thanks" for bringing up all these polemics against the EU.

What Le Clerk referred to is rather the changes of laws and regulations in Romania (and similar in Poland and others) that cut the powers of supreme courts, that cut the independence of the state attorneys and anti-corruption enforcement units; and that grants basically impunity for corruption cases, clearly aimed at the leader of the government party who can't be prime minister but de-facto has the power, who has been convicted of election fraud.
And yes, because of these, Schengen expansion to Romania seems unlikely; it's one of the last aces other countries have to try to bring reason to Romania in this case, so they won't give up on that to easily..

But yeah, also possible to divert the topic to Merkel and refuges, sure

Interesting project. It is visible on Google Earth (5 April 2019 imagery!)

The southern end appears to be some time away from completion, there is partially only a cleared path in the forest.

The Gabrovo bypass is a bit delayed. It was to be completed in 2015, but the government lost the EU financing and now has to finish it with budget money.

The next stage of the project is the Shipka tunnel, but still it's not announced when it will be built.

Here's some update of the A2 construction. Ground works have started on ~1 km stretch close to the village of Toros.

It seems to be right but the section is paritally u/c now, see aerials. It seems that construction works were visible from February 2019. I also spot some works when I drove I1 in late May

I think that the 5.8km Zheleznitsa – Krupnik section should be opened by early 2022 according to the contract deadlines. Correct?

Any news about the 5.1km Blagoevgrad-South – Zheleznitsa section?

This is a huge mess.

Agromah is building 3.1 from 359+000 to km 366+000 (This was almost completely opened already, less ~500 meters) and 370+400 to km 376+000, As far as I'm aware they're currently building between KM's 370 and 373, and the last 3 are being redesigned due to changes in the section to the south.

Then, the 366.0-370.4km is split between 3 other companies. The first 700m are built by GBS, then the tunnel itself, from 366.7 to 369.0 is built by GP Group, then the last 1.4km on the south side, between km 369.0 and 370.4 are built by PST. But I don't think there's anything happening just yet on those 5kms between kms 366.0 and 370.4

Are you talking about the recently opened section? Or about the gap between the current motorway end and Zheleznitsa where you can see earthworks on aerials?

The recently opened one, in late May. What they opened is almost completely the north part of their split contract.You can see on the satellite that earthworks continue just a bit further than the IC where the opened part ends.That's KM 366.000, right at the river.

Anyway, to simplify it, all these short sections will open to traffic only when the Zheleznitsa tunnel is built.
