The Trakia Highway connecting Sofia and Burgas is in critical condition and should be closed for traffic because of violated safety requirements. This is what Bogdan Milchev of the Road Safety Institute (an independent non-governmental experts’ organization) said.
Mr. Milchev gave an example with the section Ihtiman - Plovdiv, where the guardrail is broken in more than 50 places. "The lack of maintenance makes the road deadly," the expert said.
More than 1,000 road accidents have occurred on the Trakia Motorway for 4 months but broken guardrails have not been restored and some guardrails "stand like spears pointing towards the passing cars," Bogdan Milchev added.
