The Bulgarian state will provide 32.5 million leva for the completion of the easternmost part of the Maritsa motorway, the section spanning from Orizovo to the Captain Andreevo border checkpoint with Turkey, Bulgarian media reported on March 18 2010.

On March 18, Prime Minister Boiko Borissov, Minister of Regional Development Rossen Plevneliev and the head of the executive council of the road agency Bozhidar Yotov will go on site and assess construction process on the motorway.

Construction on the adjacent part of the motorway, spanning from Orizovo west to Harmanli, a section encompassing a total of 67km, will be executed under the operative transport programme, Dnevnik daily said. That section, which is divided into four different lots, is worth 209 million euro. Public tenders for those four lots will be launched towards the end of 2010.

Maritsa motorway, or A3, which is part of the European corridor IV, has a total length of 117km, of which 38km have been completed to date.
