Construction of Bulgaria Trakiya Highway to Restart May 3, 2010
The construction of the final part of Bulgaria’s Trakiya Highway is expected to start May 3, 2009.
This was announced Tuesday by Regional Development Minister Rosen Plevneliev during a conference on the development of small and medium-sized enterprises in Southeast Europe.
The GERB government is going to announce the tender for the construction of the Trakiya Highway on November 12, 2009. The sale of tender documentation will start on November 18, 2009, and the potential investors will have two months to submit their applications.
The construction permit should be ready by April 2009, and the actual work can begin at the beginning of May.
Plevneliev also announced that the schedule for the construction of the Lyulin Highway connecting Sofia to the Serbian border would be clear in one week. After that, the Bulgarian government, the Turkish consortium Mapa Cengiz, and the EU Commissioner for Regional Development Pavel Samecki are going to sign an agreement for the completion of the project.
The Minister pointed out the former government had failed to construct the planned tunnels and bridges, and to complete the expropriation procedures.
