Bulgaria's PM Boyko Borisov and the Minister on Regional Development, Rosen Plevneliev, will inspect the construction of the Trakiya Highway on Tuesday.

The check will include the whole trace from the city of Stara Zagora to the town of Karnobat.

Borisov and Pevneliev will also inspect the work of the three companies, Greece's Aktor and the Bulgarian tie-in Unified Highway Trace and Trakiya IV, which are constructing different parts of the Trakiya Highway.

The inspection comes a week after Mostrstroy AD, one of the winning bidders to build Lot 4 of the Trakiya Highway, filed for insolvency. According to Plevneliev, this would not affect the construction works.

The construction of Trakiya Highway began in May with the trace from the city of Stara Zagora to the town of Nova Zagora, built by Unified Highway Trace.

At the beginning of August, the Greek Aktor started building the trace from Nova Zagora to the city of Yambol.

The construction of the longest trace from Yambol to Karnobat began in September when Moststroy had experienced financial difficulties. Then, Trakiya IV promises to finish ahead of schedule the trace and make it ready for use in 2012, even though the deadline in the contract is 2013.
