The Chairman of the Regional Committee of the European Parliament, Yunus Omarji, called on our country to complete the infrastructure projects started as soon as possible, before the funds allocated for them are lost, and in this case Bulgaria could lose 2 billion leva.

According to bourgas.ru, Chairman of the Regional Committee of the European Parliament Yunus Omarji called on our country to complete the infrastructure projects started as soon as possible before the funds allocated for them are lost, and in this case Bulgaria could lose 2 billion leva.

The Struma highway, the Gabrovo bypass and the tunnel under Shipka are most at risk. If the projects are not completed by 2024, Bulgaria could lose more than 2 billion leva, commented MEP Andrey Novakov.

Within two days, the Chairman of the Regional Committee of the European Parliament, Youth Omarji, visited the most problematic facilities in our country to check how the funds allocated for the program period 2014-2020 are being spent.

“I was there, on the spot, and saw roads funded by the European Union, which are not completed and lead to nowhere. This creates a bad image for EU cohesion policy. We feel like everything is dead. Where construction has stopped, it must continue,” Yunos Omarji said, pointing out that the Struma highway is a priority not only for Bulgaria, but also for the European Commission.

“The motorway’s only chance is to complete the project,” Andrey Novakov said.

“New moves to build a tunnel in the soil, which is radioactive there, means that we will practically forget about it by 2030. Many countries are studying projects and they have not been stopped anywhere,” Andrey Novakov summed up.
