Bulgaria will launch the construction of a 24-kilometer section of Struma motorway in September, Regional Development Lilyana Pavlova has said.

The ministry awarded a BGN 281 M contract for the construction of the motorway stretch between Kresna and Sandanski to local consortium Struma-Lot 3.3 in September 2015.

Another consortium, Struma Motorway 3.1, will start building a 13km section linking the city of Blagoevgrad and Krupnik next year, Pavlova told bTV on Wednesday. The construction contract worth BGN 186 M was awarded at the end of last year.

Seventeen companies have submitted bids in a tender for the construction of Zheleznitsa tunnel, which will become part of the motorway linking Bulgaria and Greece, Pavlova added.

The tunnel will feature two pipes with a combined length of five kilometers. The estimated cost of the project is BGN 250 M.
