New Underground Section Sofia

This weekend, Sofia Mayor, Boyko Borisov, made a fresh announcement regarding the new underground section in Sofia. Stating that the underground will become the mainstay of the transport system in the capital, Borisov attended the inauguration of the start of the new section between Mladost and Tsarigradsko Shosse, due to be completed by summer 2009.

The project will be financed to the tune of 20 million BGN from the national budget this year.

By 2020, the plan is for the subway to comprise 63km of tracks with a total of 65 stations but is hoped to complete earlier provided sufficient funding is in place.
