The Bulgarian company “Holding Roads” will sign Tuesday a contract with the Road Infrastructure agency for the construction of the last section of Trakiya Highway, which will link the towns of Yambol and Karnobat.
The Road Infrastructure agency has announced that the construction is scheduled to begin September 3.
On July 23, “Holding Roads” was announced winner in the tender for building the 49km so-called Lot 4 section of the Trakiya Highway. The offer of the company was BGN 174,705,600 VAT excluded.
In comparison to the other two lots of Trakiya Highway that are being constructed at the moment, the price for Lot 4 is the highest because of the more difficult area.
Bulgaria's tie-in “Unified Highway Trace” won the tender for the construction of the 32km Lot 2 section of the Trakiya Highway, linking the city of Stara Zagora and the town of Nova Zagora. The consortium submitted the lowest bid – BGN 137.86 M.
Greece's Aktor placed the lowest price offer of EUR 111,6 M in a tender for the construction of 35.7km Lot 3 of the Trakiya Highway that would connect the towns of Nova Zagora and Yambol.
