  • Burgas will acquire a new road 4 km long, which will take part of the traffic from heavy trucks outside the city. The bypass road, which will have several traffic nodes type “clover” will allow traffic coming from Varna to go directly to the highway “Trakia” instead of crossing part of Burgas. The site will cost about BGN 63 million with VAT — this is the marginal price according to the public procurement for selection of a builder launched today by the Road Infrastructure Agency.
