Landslide mitigation adds more than £1M to Bulgaria’s Struma motorway costs

Bulgaria’s road infrastructure agency has said that landslide protection for the new Struma motorway will add more than £1M to the cost of the project.

Ground movement earlier this year led to potential risk from reactivated landslides being identified on two sections of the new route after construction had started.

The agency is reported to have awarded contracts to the contractors working on the motorway - GBS Infrastructure Construction and Patstroy 92 – without a tender process in a bid to open the route on schedule next month.

The contractors are believed to have started work on constructing retaining walls to protect the motorway from further ground movements.
