The Renovation of over 33 km of the Aytos Pass Began
On Friday, July 31, the rehabilitation of over 33 km of the Aytos pass – road III-208 Provadia-Daskotna – began. It is the most convenient and shortest connection for drivers from Varna district to the Trakia motorway. The investment is worth over BGN 24.3 million. The project is financed under Operational Programme “Regions in Growth” 2014-2020 through the European Regional Development Fund and the national budget. For its faster implementation, the route is divided into two lots – 29 and 30. The period for execution of the construction and installation works is 15 months.
Part of lot 29 is the section from km 49+184 to km 65+933 in the districts of Burgas and Varna. The beginning of the section to be renovated is the bridge over the Tsonevo dam at 49th km, and the end is at the 65th km, not far from the village of Vishna in Burgas district.
The construction and installation works foresee the development of new construction in the places with insufficient load-bearing capacity and laying of new asphalt concrete covering throughout the section, a junction of asphalt streets and agricultural roads, and restoration of the road hard shoulders and slopes. For optimal drainage, new lined trenches and concrete curbs will be built on the pavement. The existing culverts will be cleaned and new ones will be built. The section will have updated restraint systems, vertical signalling and horizontal marking.
Six bridge facilities, including the bridge over the Tsonevo dam, and the ones over the Kamchiya river and the Germeto river will be renovated. The project foresees the expansion and strengthening of the rock tunnel at 56 km, near the village of Bilka. The reinforcement walls will be rebuilt or upgraded in some sections of the road.
The implementation of the site will significantly improve the transportation and performance qualities of the road. It will increase the safety and comfort during travel. The third class road provides the transport connections of the town of Provadia, Devnya and Varna, Novi Pazar and Shumen with Aytos, Karnobat and Burgas, and passes through the villages of Dobromir and Bilka.
