The agreements for winter cleaning and roads maintenance will be concluded not for one, but for four or five years, the Bulgarian Branch Chamber Roads, the management of the Road Infrastructure Agency, and representatives of the Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works (MRDPW) have agreed. Extending the terms is for companies to be sure they would be on the activities for longer periods so that they could invest in new equipment, Chair of the branch chamber Roumen Yovchev explained for Bulgaria News. The current practice is to organize tenders for each season, as the most often companies credit winters cleaning and maintenance and receive the money for works completed with a delay. The regional ministry intends to change this and from now on the funds for maintenance and repair works on the republican roads to be paid out to the companies in the agreed time periods. Money for the start of the season is secured. The Roads Agency has allotted to the regional units money for the initial activities on securing the roads in winter conditions, Roumen Yovchev said. It amounts to some BGN 50 million to 100 million for each region. But for a lot of some 130-150 km about BGN 300,000 to 400,000 is needed for the entire season, eng. Yovchev explained.
