Bulgaria's Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, and the Minister of Regional Development, Lilyana Pavlova are inspecting Sunday the progress of construction works on the Hemus highway in northern Bulgaria.

When completed, the highway, whose construction began in the distant 1975, during the Communist regime of Todor Zhivkov, will connect the capital Sofia with the Black Sea city of Varna.

The PM and the Minister are visiting Sunday the segment near Shumen, before the village of Panayot Volovo and the junction with the road to the Danube city of Ruse.

Borisov and Pavlova will further examine the archeological finds in the area, located along and on the road, and will meet with local archeologists.

On Wednesday, during a similar inspection, the PM shocked many, when he treated local archaeologists in a surprisingly offensive fashion with respect to an archaeological site found during the construction of the southwestern highway "Struma."
