Spanish construction company FCC which has been selected to build the second bridge to link Bulgaria to Romania over the Danube river requested an expansion of the deadline and another 100 million euro, novinite.com informs.
The announcement was made on Sunday by the Bulgarian news television quoting Simeon Evtimov, a member of the governmental unit that supervises the project.
The construction of the bridge due to link the Bulgarian city Vidin with Calafat was delayed by three to four months due to some land expropriation issues in the area. FCC representatives demanded another 100 million euro to the rest of 225.6 million euro for the 1,971 meter bridge.
The bridge should be built by the end of 2010 and the Bulgarian Transports minister declared that the company would finish works as planned.
