The Highway Ruse – Veliko Tarnovo – between Fiction and Necessity

Martin Doykov


The article discusses the construction of a highway between the towns of Ruse on the Danube River and Veliko Tarnovo, in Bulgaria. It follows the chronology of the project development from the time when it wasn’t even mentioned as a part of the highway system of Bulgaria, through the idea for its upgrade to a speedway, and to nowadays when the work on the project for highway started. A lot of statistical facts are given about the problems of traveling on the existing road E85 between the two towns, supporting the necessity of the construction of a highway. Also the connections with the other infrastructural projects are described and the importance of the project for the regional development is discussed.
