Building of Kresna – Sandanski stretch of Struma motorway to begin in September

Construction of the Kresna-Sandanski stretch of Bulgaria’s Struma Motorway, that will run to the Greek border, is to begin in September 2016, Regional Development and Public Works Minister Lilyana Pavlova said.

The stretch will be 24km long and is officially designated as Lot 3.3 of the Struma Motorway, which when completed will be 156km long.

The contract to build the Kresna-Sandanski stretch was signed in September 2015 and is worth close to 281 million leva, including value-added tax (about 144 million euro).

Pavlova said that in the new building season, work would also start on the Blagoevgrad – Krupnik section, a length of 13km.
