Revenues from vignettes currently stand at BGN 300 million a year, according to data for 2016. New tolls are expected to increase revenues by at least BGN 500 million already in the first year, Regional Development Minister Nikolay Nankov told journalists, quoted by FOCUS News Agency
. The road sector will thus generate enough funds for itself and won’t need state financing, or loans, even from the EU fund. There will be money for new roads, rehabilitation and quality maintenance. However, tolls won’t affect the citizens. Those who spoil the road infrastructure will pay more, the minister said.
Asked about ongoing public procurement for the toll system, Nankov said the government will again extend the period for submission of offers if there are none until 17:00 local time today.
