Winter cleaning in the country will be more expensive this year. This can be seen after the opening of tenders in public procurement for the selection of contractors for winter maintenance and restoration works in emergency situations on the republican roads for winter 2022/2023. It concerns the Hemus, Trakia, Struma and Maritsa highways, as well as the republican network in the planning regions – North-West, North-East, South-East, South-Central and South-West regions. The deadline for submitting bids for the North Central region is until September 5, and the bids will be opened on September 7, the Road Infrastructure Agency recalls.
