SOFIA (Bulgaria), June 11 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's Road Infrastructure Agency (RIA) said on Tuesday that five consortiums are competing in the tender for providing supervision services in the project for construction of two lots of Hemus motorway.

Three of the candidates, among which a Bulgarian-Austrian consortium, have filed their offers for Lot 1, while two bidders will compete for Lot 2, the government agency said in a press release.

The estimated value of the contract for supervision services for the first lot is 9.2 million levs ($5.3 million/4.7 million euro) and 13.1 million levs for the second.

The two lots form part of the 134-km long stretch of Hemus motorway that would link Boaza road junction some 100 km east of Sofia to the city of Veliko Tarnovo, in central northern Bulgaria.
