Tender for highway Maritsa to be announced next month

Date: 31.01.2006

"Before the end of the next month Bulgaria will invite a tender for the concession of the Maritsa highway," said Vesselin Georgiev head of the Roads Executive Agency. He added that if the concession for the section between Orizovo (central Bulgaria) and Kapitan Andreevo (southern Bulgaria) is granted, the construction and repairs of the other roads of the Bulgarian Republican Network could be financed. The budget of the Roads Executive Agency is not sufficient to fund the construction of big infrastructure projects.

The interest to the tender will for sure be high, as the road is one of the busiest in Bulgaria and therefore it will be a good investment. The construction of the highway is also a European priority because it is part of the trans-border corridor No 10.

"In five years' time we can construct a highway ring in Bulgaria," Georgiev said further.

The construction of the Trakia and Lyulin highways is expected to start off by the end of 2006. The court hearing on the scandalous concession for the Trakia highway will start tomorrow at the Bulgarian Supreme Administrative Court.
