 Bulgaria will start building on Wednesday a 37-kilometre section of a motorway linking the capital Sofia with the Greek border, the national road infrastructure agency said.
The construction of the Dupnitsa - Blagoevgrad section will be co-funded by the state budget and the EU's Cohesion Fund under operational programme Transport 2007-2013, the agency added in a press release.
The 358.7 million lev ($243.4 million/183.4 million euro) construction contract has been awarded to a consortium consisting of Italy’s Impresa and local companies GBS Infrastructure Construction and Patstroy-92.
The construction works should be completed in 22 months.
The Struma motorway, with a total length of 173.28 km, is part of pan-European transport Corridor IV.
