November 23 (SeeNews) - Consortium Danube Bridge, led by Bulgarian civil engineering company GBS-Infrastructure Construction, was awarded a 37.4 million levs ($20.9 million/19.1 million euro) contract for the overhaul of a bridge across the Danube linking the cities of Ruse in Bulgaria and Giurgiu in Romania, the Road Infrastructure Agency said.
The consortium, which also includes local company Patengineering, will reconstruct a 1.06-kilometre road section on the Bulgarian side of the bridge, the government agency said in a decision published in the public procurement register last week. The project also includes replacing the asphalt and panels, along with waterproofing and adding new safety fences, restriction systems and markings.
The Danube bridge has not undergone any major repairs, with its joints reinforced over 22 years ago and waterproofing and asphalt replaced in 2011, the RIA previously said.
The overhaul should take up to 730 days.
Bulgaria and Romania are connected by two bridges - between Ruse and Giurgiu, and between Vidin and Calafat.
GBS-Infrastructure Construction is a subsidiary of Bulgarian civil engineering contractor Glavbolgarstroy Holding.
