sofia - Bulgaria is accelerating the renovation of 211 rickety bridges as a result of the disaster in Genoa. Viaducts of 35 years and older have never been thoroughly taken care of, some even not at all. The Minister of Regional Development Nikolaj Nankov said this on Wednesday during the cabinet meeting in Sofia.

Nankov said that it involves, among other things, 34 highway bridges, half of which are 'in poor condition'. Prime Minister Boiko Borisov instructed the responsible minister to come up with a plan of action and immediately include the renewal of worn bridges from the communist era.

The poorest EU country, which is enjoying a growing interest from tourists, has refurbished seven bridges on major routes in 2017. This year, recovery work is underway at five locations.
