The road rehabilitated under the Operational Program "Environment" from the Beklemeto area to the Dermenka hut was officially opened

11 August 2023
On August 10, a ceremony was held for the official opening of the road that connects the high mountain pass "Beklemeto" with the "Dermenka" hut in the "Central Balkan" National Park.
Activities on the site continued from 2019 to 2023 with the implementation of the technical project "Repair and restoration of the Beklemeto - Dermenka road", with a total length of the site of 10 km.
Due to the poor condition of the road in the past, the movement of motor vehicles outside the main route led to damage to neighboring territories. With the rehabilitation of the main road route and the installation of facilities limiting the unregulated movement of motor vehicles, the restoration of the eroded terrain adjacent to the road is favored.
Guests at the event were representatives of the project management team, contractors, designers, authors and construction supervisors, employees of the Operational Program "Environment" and of the two municipalities within the territorial scope of the site - Troyan and Karlovo, journalists.
The road was rehabilitated within the framework of the Contract "Protection of treeless natural habitats through repair and restoration of the road "Beklemeto" - "Dermenka" hut under Project BG16M1OP002-3.007-0006 "Restoration and protection of natural habitats and species in the Central Balkan National Park" , approved for financing by Order of the Minister of Environment and Water No. RD-OP-96/26.09.2018, according to a procedure through the direct provision of a grant under the Operational Program "Environment" 2014 - 2020, with the financial support of the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund.
