Road maintenance companies are still waiting for suspended state payments

The suspended state payments for the completion of road maintenance works are putting the national road network on the verge of collapse. This is the warning of the Bulgarian Branch Chamber “Roads”. The chamber points out that the construction companies are still waiting to receive payments of more than 400 million euros for the repairs and works, due in 2021.

Last year, the caretaker Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Violeta Komitova said that the state had no money for payments and that the Road Agency had illegally made a commitment for 750 million euro.

The new government has announced that it will budget for the cost of the repairs in 2022, but the Chamber is concerned that it does see neither budgeted funds for the suspended payments, nor funds for the planned repairs of another 3,000 km of roads in the draft budget.
