A major repair of the Danube Bridge near Ruse will begin at the end of June. It will be difficult. Traffic will be limited to one lane, but the facility requires urgent renovation that will last for two years, caretaker Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Violeta Koritarova told BNT. 

The renovation will cost BGN 23 million and the money will be provided by the state. The entire 1.1 km section will be renovated, Minister Koritarova explained. A ferry line between Giurgiu and Ruse will be opened, which will ease traffic. Violeta Koritarova assessed the condition of the roads in the country as unsatisfactory. They have not been repaired in the last three years. Only emergency repairs have been carried out. The Trakia Motorway needs repairs near Sliven and Yambol, but this will happen after the peak tourist season, the minister explained.
