Bulgarian Road Carriers to Block Sofia's Exits at 3pm on Friday
Bulgarian road carriers have threatened to block Sofia's exits at 3pm on Friday in a protest against new restrictions.
Krasimir Lalov, Deputy Chair of the National Association of Bulgarian Road Carriers (NABRC) explained in an interview for the Bulgarian National Radio on Wednesday that TIR trucks would block Sofia's exit points unless a July 22 ordinance of the Road Infrastructure Agency was revoked by then.
Lalov noted that the ordinance imposed further restrictions on the movement of TIR trucks of over 12 tonnes.
He specified that the new ordinance increased the number of roads on which the movement of heavy trucks and specialized equipment was restricted on Friday 6-9pm and on Sunday 2-8pm from 5 first-class roads and 1 second-class road to 12 first-class roads and 5 second-class roads plus all highways.
Lalov underscored that RIA had adopted the decision unilaterally, without discussing it with industry representatives.
The NABRC Chair suggested that the ordinance had been adopted to satisfy lobbyists' interests.
He urged Stefan Chaikov, RIA Chair, to revoke the ordinance by July 31 or the Association would disclose whose interests RIA had bowed to.
