Trucks over 12 Tonnes Banned from Highways in Bulgaria During Rush Hours on 3 and 6 May
Trucks over 12 tonnes will be banned from motorways in the rush hours of 3 and 6 May, said the press office of the Road Infrastructure Agency.
To ease the traffic, there will be two lanes in the sections under repair on Trakia Motorway and Hemus Motorway to Burgas and Varna, and one to Sofia. On 3 May, from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm, the last working day before the three-day weekend for St. George's Day, the movement of lorries over 12 tonnes will be restricted on motorways and busiest roads. The aim is to improve safety and increase the capacity of the infrastructure. In view of the expected heavy traffic, the Road Infrastructure Agency is urging drivers to drive carefully and at an appropriate speed, observe traffic rules, and not use the motorway emergency lane as a passing lane.
