All problems between Bulgaria and Romania, concerning the construction, which were put off for years, are already solved, said the Minister Aleksandar Tsvetkov

The first sod was turned by Sergei Stanishev on 13 May 2007.

The Minister of Transport, Information Technologies and Communications Aleksandar Tsvetkov promised in the programme “ The week of Darik radio” that in two years Danube Bridge 2 will be ready for exploitation.

He explained that the delay of the construction is about one year and two months, compared to what was stated. And the funds that are given by the European Commission for the construction of this bridge are valid up to the end of 2010.

"We submitted our request for extension of time of the term for financing with one year. So great is the delay that whatever organization is done now, it is theoretically impossible to finish in the due term, said Minister Tsvetkov.

 But in his opinion the organization now is very good and all the problems between Bulgaria and Romania, concerning the construction of the bridge, which for long years were put off, are now already solved.
