Bulgaria Shortlists Eight Candidate Builders for 37 km Section of Struma Motorway

Bulgaria has shortlisted eight candidates in a tender for the construction of a 37 kilometre (km) section of the Greece-bound Struma motorway, the country's Road Infrastructure Agency.

The shortlisted bidders are Greece's Aktor, Austria's Strabag and Greece's JPN-Avax alongside five local and foreign tie-ups, the agency said in a statement said on Thursday.

The construction of the road stretch between the towns of Dupnitsa and Blagoevgrad is co-financed by the EU-funded operational programme Transport.

The agency said in May that the indicative value of the contract was 200 million levs ($126.4 million/102.3 million euro), excluding Value Added Tax.

The Struma motorway, with a total length of 173.28 km, links Sofia with the Greek border and is part of pan-European transport Corridor IV.
