Bulgaria will continue building and finishing highways, with Trakiya to be ready in 2012 and Maritsa in 2013, promised Minister of Infrastructure Rosen Plevneliev.

Sunday Plevneliev, together with other high ranking officials will be present at the official launch of the Lyulin Highway, which will connect the Sofia ringroad to the E-79 international road to Greece.

The Infrastructure Minister commented that the construction of the Trakiya Highway, set to connect Sofia to Burgas on the Black Sea, is going completely as scheduled and it is certain to be finished by June 2012.

Maritsa, set to connect Trakiya to the Turkish border near Svilengrad, is set to be ready sometime in 2013.

"Bulgaria needs 7 highways. We now have the first of them ready," said Plevneliev, referring to Lyulin, a mere 19-km stretch of road.

Over the end of 2010, Bulgaria's center-right GERB cabinet led by PM Boyko Borisov turned the development of infrastructure into one of its very top priorities.
