Bulgaria and Romania to manage jointly Danube Bridge II

Date: 01.10.2008

A joint Bulgarian Romanian company is to be created to manage the so called Danube Bridge II, according to the Bulgarian Transportation Minister Petar Mutafchiev.

Mutafchiev is in the northwest Bulgarian city of Vidin along with the Deputy Prime Minister Meglena Plugchieva and the Interior Minister Mihail Mikov to inspect the bridge construction works. According to Mutafchiev, it has now become unacceptable to waste anymore time since the construction works have been already delayed by six months.

Representatives of the European Commission are also visiting Vidin on Friday and Saturday in order to inspect the construction of the bridge, which will connect Bulgaria to the Romanian town of Calafat across the river.

The Minister further stated that the delay was due to the delay in the project design, but real construction activity has already begun. Mutafchiev further said that some increase of the project's price was expected due to the fuels' price hike, but the Cabinet was conducting negotiations and would resist pressure on the part of the company about any other rises.

The bridge is scheduled to be completed in 2010 and if the company does not adhere to this deadline, new negations would take place. This scenario was qualified by the Minister as a crisis situation, which would require that the State takes part in the project's financing.
