    Bulgarian PM Vows Sofia Airport Metro Connection by 2014

    January 26, 2012



    By mid-2014, with all new expansions, it is expected that Sofia's subway will be used by nearly half million passengers each day.

    The Sofia subway will reach the airport in 2014, according to the promise of Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov.

    The new deadline is ahead of the previous schedule, after it became clear at the end of 2011 that the segment between the main Sofia thoroughfare "Tsarigradsko Shosse" boulevard and the airport will be included in the current program period of the EU operational program "Transport" and a public procurement tender for a construction contractor was announced.

    Other lines of the capital's metro will also be finished several months ahead of schedule, according to Borisov, who spoke during a tour and inspection of construction works.

    The segment between the "Mladost" district and "Tsarigradsko Shosse" will open at the end of May - beginning of June this year, while by August 1, the subway line will reach the "Hemus" hotel.

    The PM had proposed to the City Hall to bind parking fees with metro fares – which will be lower than parking prices in Sofia – as a measure to encourage residents and visitors to use the subway and ease traffic in the congested capital.

    "Using the subway will take you there in 3-4 minutes, while if you drive, it will take 40 minutes," Borisov explained, adding that parking lots, adjacent to the subway, will be 4 with 2 800 parking spaces.
