Makaza Pass Connecting Bulgaria and Greece to Be Opened in 2009
This was announced by the Mayor of the Greek town of Komotini Dimitrios Kotsakis before a Bulgarian delegation led by the Mayor of the city of Kurdzhali Hasan Azis.
The uncompleted road on the Greek side is long 18 km. It is being built by an Italian consortium under supervision by a Greek state-owned company.
The road through the Makaza Pass is going to connect the Bulgarian city of Kurdzhali and the Greek town of Komotini, and will provide a shorter route for many Bulgarians to the Aegean Sea coast.
The road on the Bulgarian side between Kurdzali and Makaza was completed two years ago, but has not been used because of the incomplete road on the Greek side.
The Makaza Pass road is also part of the Pan-European Transport Corridor No. 9 starting at Helsinski, Finland, and ending on the Aegean coast in northern Greece.
