Bulgaria's Lyulin highway to be ready in 2010

Date: 26.06.2008

Representatives of the Turkish company MAPA-CENGIZ, which is building the Lyulin Highway, announced that the project would be completed in 2010.

The Deputy Director of the construction company Dzhomhur Barush met Tuesday with the Governor of the Pernik District Ivan Dimitrov and the head of the regional road agency Tano Georgiev.

Barush announced that 100 more workers would arrive from Turkey soon in order to accelerate the construction works on the Lyulin Highway. He also said that all the necessary equipment for the completion of the project is already in place.

450 workers are already working on the construction site. They have laid the foundations of four bridges.

The Lyulin Highway will connect Bulgaria's capital Sofia to the Daskalovo Road Junction outside of the city of Pernik. It will be long 19 km, including 6 km of bridges and 2 km of tunnels because of the mountainous terrain.

The highway will cost a total of EUR 148,5 M. EUR 111,4 M of these are provided by the EU through the ISPA program.

The Lyulin Highway is part of the E 79 international road and of the European Transport Corridors IV and VIII.
