SOFIA | Metro

Turkish, Bulgarian companies to build Sofia metro

SOFIA, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Bulgaria has contracted Turkish Dogus Construction Group and Bulgarian consortium Metrotrace to build Sofia's second metro line for a combined 471 million levs ($354.4 million), the transport ministry said on Wednesday.

The companies won a tender for the 6.5 kilometre stretch, aimed to relieve the traffic in Sofia and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 35,000 tonnes per year, the ministry said.

Turkey's Dogus will build the first sector of the stretch, which is 3.8 kilometres, for 329.1 million levs ($247.6 million). Bulgaria's Metrotrace will finish the last 2.6 kilometres in a 141.9 million levs ($106.8 million) deal.

The European Union-backed project will be cofinanced by the Sofia Municipality. The line should be completed by 2012.

The Balkan country launched a small section of the Sofia subway in early 1998. It plans to build three railway lines across the capital, where more than 2 million people, or roughly a quarter of Bulgaria's population, live.

Yeah the first line will get 6 new stations by December this year and will have 14 stations. About the second line, two stations and the tunnels between them are already build in the 80s.

I personally doubt that by 2012 we'll have 30 km ot metro... look what's happening : they build some 5 km for more than 4 years, another 10 km were opened after 30 years of contsruction Welcome to Bulgaria !

The scheme of MD2 taken from the presentation of OPT.

Only the stations at NDK and Hemus will be with a central platform.

It is pleasing to see that we Turks are building metro lines to Sofia. After all, Sofia and the rest of Bulgaria used to belong to Turks.
