Bulgaria, Croatia need to fully implement EU's tunnel safety measures - EC EU Commission headquarters in Brussels; Author: Radomir Ralev

SOFIA (Bulgaria), October 11 (SeeNews) - The European Commission said that it has sent letters of formal notice to Bulgaria and Croatia for not complying in full with the safety measures for tunnels set by the European Union.

The bloc sets out minimum safety measures relating to the infrastructure and operation of all tunnels in the trans-European road network, with lengths of over 500 metres, the Commission said in a monthly infringement decisions package published on Thursday. 

"The Member States concerned have not implemented the full set of required infrastructural measures to ensure the highest safety standards in certain tunnels falling within this scope," the EU institution also said. 

Bulgaria and Croatia now have two months to notify the Commission of measures taken to remedy the situation.
