Bulgaria Regional Minister Proposes Euro Funds to Fill Potholes

Bulgaria Minister for Regional Development Rosen Plevneliev has proposed to ask for more than EUR 1 B of European operational funding to be diverted to repairing roads.

The Minister has discussed the measure with colleagues from other EU member states, asking for their support for this initiative.

Pointing out that this was an unprecedented step, Plevneliev announced it would be an effective anti-crisis measure, providing work for contractors, and benefiting the tourist industry in the longer term.

He stated that he would ask for the estimated EUR 1 B in operational funds already allocated to Bulgaria, but that are unlikely to be used before their 2013 deadline, to be transferred to the roads project.

Plevneliev explained that, if Brussels agreed with his proposal, the initiative could begin as early as autumn 2010. Otherwise, it could start in the following year, he claimed.

He concluded that, if Bulgaria received the support of other member states for relocation of the funds, it would be "
an incredible sign of solidarity"
.

Bulgaria Drivers Shout No to Potholes

Bulgaria's disgruntled drivers have staged rallies across the country in protest against the country's potholed streets.

Unlike the mass protests in the central town of Veliko Tarnovo and the Black Sea City of Varna, hardly twenty people gathered in front of the building of the parliament in the capital Sofia, shouting "
No to the potholes!"
.

The protesters said low-quality and partial road repairs were just a way to syphon off money as they did not seem to do a lasting job.

In a declaration, which they plan to submit to the Sofia municipality, the protesters demand that the civil society wields more power in monitoring the road repair works and call on the municipality to present a year-long plan.

The protests are organized by the administrators of independent website [url=http:

Why Canadians Are Brilliant People

[align=center:29a1iwvo][size=150:29a1iwvo]Speed controls being used in Eastern Canada

How'
s this for excellent speed control?




[size=150:29a1iwvo]I don'
t know about you, but this would slow me down! People slow down and try to "
straddle"
the hole ......



[size=150:29a1iwvo]This is actually a speed control device that is in use. It is much cheaper than speed cameras.



[size=150:29a1iwvo]Pretty clever - especially when moved around each day. Isn'
t art wonderful?
