Thursday, 01 January 1970
Bulgaria will start building the Blagoevgrad-Sandanski section of a motorway linking the capital Sofia with the Greek border in the summer of 2015, the regional development ministry said.
The construction of the 65-kilometre section will be the most complex infrastructure project implemented in Bulgaria, regional development minister Desislava Terzieva said upon the launch of construction works on another section of the motorway - between Dupnitsa and Blagoevgrad.
The Struma motorway, with a total length of 173.28 km, is part of pan-European transport Corridor IV. Its construction is divided into four sections: Dolna Dikanya – Dupnitsa, Dupnitsa – Blagoevgrad, Blagoevgrad-Sandanski, and Sandanski-Kulata.
