A large pothole gapped in the middle of the bridge, which was paved only 4 months ago, in the traffic lane from Romania to Bulgaria, will be repaired.

Other defects in the pavement, such as cracks due to poor drainage of the bridge, causing water to leak under the asphalt that were identified during a check commissioned by Bulgaria’s Ministry of Transport in October, will be removed.

This is a brand new bridge that is being "repaired". Obviously it was poorly built and defective from the start and it probably shouldn't even be open to traffic at all. Anyone that values their life should avoid using this deathtrap.
