Bulgaria's Road Infrastructure Agency said it will sign a 1.5 million levs ($848,200/767,000 euro) deal, VAT excluded, with local company GBS Infrastrukturno Stroitelstvo for an emergency repair of a viaduct on the Struma motorway damaged by fire. The viaduct near the town of Dupnitsa south of Sofia was damaged earlier this month when trash unlawfully piled under the viaduct by a waste collection company caught fire.RIA said in a notice on Thursday that it will assign the works to GBS Infrastrukturno Stroitelstvo without calling a public procurement tender because of the urgent need of repair of the viaduct in view of traffic safety requirements and the importance of the Struma motorway for the national economy. The viaduct on the Struma motorway connecting Sofia to Kulata checkpoint on the border with Greece was closed for traffic after the fire for safety reasons.GBS Infrastrukturno Stroitelstvo is the company that had built the viaduct and is responsible for fixing any defects on the structure during the warranty period. Works on the project should be completed within 4 months.
