Bulgaria, Romania to sign memorandum on two new bridges across the Danube

Bulgaria and Romania are to sign a memorandum on beginning preparations for two new bridges over the Danube River, which forms the border between the two countries, Bulgaria’s caretaker Transport Minister Nikolina Angelkova said on October 21 2014.

The bridges will connect Bulgaria’s Nikopol with Turnu Măgurele and Silistra with Călărași in south-eastern Romania.

Angelkova, speaking during a visit to Rousse, site of the first of two bridges connecting Bulgaria with Romania across the Danube, said that the memorandum would be signed next week.

Funding would come from the Bulgaria-Romania cross-border co-operation programme 2014-2020.
