People from Kardam village organized a protest over the critical condition of the road section from the town of General Toshevo to the border with Romania at Kardam border checkpoint. The road was supposed to have been repaired by October, but the deadline has been extended until May 2022.

Traffic along the secondary road is extremely heavy, with more than 8,000 vehicles a day, 1,000 of them – trucks. At the beginning of the winter, before the first snow, the top layer of the road surface has been removed for future asphalting. The crash barriers have been removed. The road section is very dangerous, locals say.

“Everyone has to zigzag to avoid the potholes, and that causes traffic accidents in winter,” municipality mayor Valentin Dimitrov said.
