Traffic restrictions for vehicles weighing over 10 tonnes on the so-called Danube Bridge connecting Bulgaria and Romania have been lifted.
It had been initially announced that the restrictions would remain in place until April 13.
Danube Bridge was closed for heavy trucks on Sunday due to a large pothole in one of the lanes in the Bulgarian section of the bridge.
Bulgarian and Romanian authorities are jointly repairing the facility, which is currently the only bridge linking the two countries along their 500-km Danube border.
The 2.8 km Danube Bridge, linking Ruse in Bulgaria and Giurgiu in Romania, was completed in 1954.
A second facility, the so-called Danube Bridge 2, is expected to start operating between Vidin and Calafat in May.
