Abstract

The Bulgarian General Road Administration has been investigating the possibility of introducing private capital into the construction, maintenance and operation of the motorways in Bulgaria. A feasibility study, supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, was commissioned in April 1995 to study the feasibility of implementing a toll collection system on the Trans European Motorway section between Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria and Plovdiv, the second city. The study examined the legal, technical and financial aspects of implementing a toll collection system.
