“Builders have 200 days to complete the Sofia Largo and we have no reasons to worry that they will not do it.” This was stated during the inspection of the implementation of the final stage of the project for construction of Ancient cultural communication complex “Serdika” by Minister of Culture Vezhdi Rashidov. His department is contracting authority of the project, which is implemented with BGN 15.5 million under Operational Program “Regional Development 2007 – 2013“. The inspection was attended also by Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Lilyana Pavlova, her deputy Denitsa Nikolova,
Mayor of Sofia Municipality Yordanka Fandakova, Deputy Mayor
Dr. Todor Chobanov and others.
Last summer the unique excavations of ancient Serdika were buried in mud, now at the site builders are working hard, the inspectors said.
“There are all prerequisites the project to be implemented in time
and we are confident that this will happen,” confirmed Minister of Regional Development and Public Works Lilyana Pavlova and warned that the closing date of the operational program is the end of the year and the funds on it should be disbursed.
“There is really a lot of work. The deadline must be met; it cannot be extended in any form and by any argument. If the contractor fails to do it, the activities will remain on his behalf or on that of the contracting authority,” she said and added she relied on full mobilization.
