The Directorate for National Construction Control (DNCC) has issued a total of 11 penal decrees for illegal construction in two sections of Hemus motorway. Construction was carried out without approved investment projects and without a construction permit.


During the inspections it was found that construction works were being carried out on state, municipal and private property for which expropriation proceedings had not been completed as of the date of the inspection. 

The criminal proceedings for Hemus Motorway started at the end of last year when acts of administrative violation were served on the contractor Avtomagistrali EAD and the construction companies with which it had concluded contracts for the two sections of the highway.
