Also, if the price is dubiously low, the authorities ask for clarifications and if these are not enough, they refuse the winning bid and reorganise the tender.

This time the tender conditions are very tough. It was announced before the offers submission that the price offered and contarcted will be the final one, no matter what obsticles appear during construction. Also any possible changes in the construction plan are due to be paid by the contractor, not the state. The timeframe is strict too, any delays are due to be paid by the contractor as well. This is the reason why there were such big gaps between the different offers i guess. The other companies secured themselves by calculating a lot bigger risk than Trace Group.

Yes, but at the other hand, Trace Group is located in Stara Zagora, so they know very well the terrain and maybe that's why they have calculated less risk (the realistic one) ...

It was announced today that the offer clarifications produced by Trace Group were deemed to be sufficient and the company was chosen as the contractor for the this stretch. It seems the decision is not final yet, but it's a step.

I hope construction will start wy earlier and Struma motorway tender will start this or next month aswell and the construction in a few months, because the Struma motorway is very needed, since the condition of the E-79 nationalroad is not that great anymore, since it is aging and this winter is cold and snowy.

Bulgaria Road Agency Confirms Trakiya Highway Tender Winner

The Bulgarian Agency 'Road Infrastructure’ has confirmed that the Bulgarian consortium 'Unified Highway Trace' has won the contract for construction of a new section of the Trakiya Highway

The tender on offer was for construction of a 32 km stretch of highway to link the towns of Stara Zagora and Nova Zagora and Bulgarian media reports had already suggested on Wednesday that "Unified Highway Trace" had won it.

The Bulgarian alliance submitted the lowest bid - BGN 137,86 M - in competition with three other approved applicants. Cost had been declared as one of the most important criteria.

The low price of the winning bid - approximately one third of the highest figure, and at a lower cost per kilometre than the consortium had received for a similar contract in 2005-2007, has been explained by the consortium’s management as reflecting local transport and material costs - the consortium's operation is based near Stara Zagora.

Four other hopeful bidders had their submissions disallowed, for undisclosed reasons. One of the excluded groups, Austrian "Strabag", later filed an official complaint with the Commission for Protection of Competition (CPC), seeking to have the tender award annulled.
So the construction of 32 km. of Trakia motorway [A1] mu st kick off in early May

Also the tender for lot 3 of Trakia Motorway [A1] was officially opened today. it will be with slightly relieved conditions, comapred with the one for lot 2, in order to avoid the big gap between the price offers that was encountered at the end of the tender for lot2. Hopefully in a couple of months we'll have a contractor for that 36 km. as well so the works could kick off some when in the summer

Right, the construction of all three lots must begin till August2010.The constructors have 25 months to finish the job.And the contract says very clearly that there cannot be any delay or change in the price.Which means that in summer of 2012 there will be motorway link between Sofia and Burgas.

So yesterday I went from Blagoevgrad to Sofia, to accompany my mother, because she had to return to Germany and it was again a great trip. We took the bus at the morning at 6:30 pm, so the sun was just rising. I was very surprised how awesome the road Dupnica Sofia and the Struma motorway still are. When the bus entered the new asphalt on the road after Dupnica, nothing could be felt anymore, the raod was as smooth and as even as glass. It was just really incredible, because really nothing could be felt. After 4 years there was no ******* unevenness on the whole road. After that we entered the motorway with a bit rougher asphalt but so even, that I thought, the bus is going with 20 km, altough the bus was going with 100 km per hour and that on the whole motorway. Just incredible masterpeace, that are the smoothest roads I've ever seen, and I've seen thausands of kilometers of roads in europe.

I must have rode it on my way to Sunny Beach a few years ago (I remember going through such a viaduct) but don't tell anyone cause it's embarrassing. However, one doesn't get to see it when riding it unfortunately.
