SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 23 (SeeNews) – Bulgaria's regional development minister Nikolay Nankov said the construction of 59.3 km of the Hemus motorway is planned for 2018, local news daily Monitor reported on Thursday.
An additional 85 million levs ($51.5 million/43.4 million euro) have been earmarked for this purpose in next year’s central government budget, Monitor quoted Nankov as saying in an interview.
The country has already signed a contract for the construction of a 9.3 km section of Hemus and works will start next year, Nankov added.
He also said that three sections of Hemus with a combined length of 50 km are currently being designed and if tendering proceeds without formal complaints, their construction can also begin next year.
Together with the stretch between the villages of Belokopitovo and Buhovtsi, a total of 75 km of Hemus motorway will be under construction in 2018.
In July, Bulgaria awarded a 119.8 million levs contract for the design and construction of the 16-km Belokopitovo – Buhovtsi stretch to a tie-up comprising local companies Infra Expert, Patengineeringstroy-T, Avtomagistrali-Tcherno more and Transconsult 22.
Hemus motorway is designed to connect the capital Sofia with the Black Sea city of Varna. The planned length of the whole motorway, parts of which are already operational, is 433 km.
