Quick orders for winter road maintenance with old participants at triple prices


Three times higher prices for winter road maintenance compared to previous prices did not cause serious competition. The companies that now take care of road maintenance participate in the tenders, and in a number of places there is only one candidate.

This was revealed after the opening of bids on Friday for five of the country’s six planning areas plus highways. Only bids for the North Central region will open on September 7.

Public procurement was announced under an accelerated procedure to ensure the upcoming winter season. The current contracts of the road maintenance companies expire on September 30.

The deadline for the execution of the contracts under the announced accelerated procedures will be no more than 7 months. Their indicative value in total is about BGN 300 million for maintaining 20,000 km of the republican road network in the winter of 2022/2023. Last year’s budget was BGN 100 million, but there is no public information on how much was actually paid to the companies.

The contracts with the selected contractors are expected to be signed by the end of September, when the current ones expire.

The quick tenders for winter maintenance are held in parallel with previously announced public procurements for current road repair for the next 3 years, which also include winter maintenance. The offers for them will be opened in the period September 13 – 15, and their total indicative value is over BGN 2.3 billion.
