It's highly doubtful even in the next 2 decades. They were bought a long time ago, but have been in use for a very short time.

I tried to upload it earlier, but something happened and i couldn't... The metro railway and the boulevard are across the place where i spent most of my childhood. There was a very big meadow, where we used to play football, to play with kites and everything that any kid used to do before hte computer "revolution".

Metropoliten orders 18 new trains for the Sofia metro system

The municipal company Metropoliten has requested the supply of 18 new trains for the Sofia metro system, which need to be delivered and put into service in 2012, Bulgarian media reported on November 2 2010.

The trains will service the second metro line which is currently under construction, running from Obelya to St Naum, and eventually to Hladilnika (projected) as well as the final segment of the old line spanning from Tsarigradsko Chaussee to the southeastern borough of Mladost.

The total investment has not been specified. The only parameters made available are that Metropoliten must be able to secure a train for no more than 10.8 million leva (5.5 mln euro) each, excluding VAT. Accordingly, Metropoliten will have a total of about 194.4 million leva (100 mln. euro) made available to spend on trains, money provided under the operative programme Transport.

Companies willing to bid for the order may apply by December 20 2010. In order to have their applications considered, the firms concerned must have executed at least two such orders with similar technical parameters in the past three years. They should also be able to supply recommendations from previous clients and have had no fewer than 300 metro carriages manufactured for the period 2007-2009, Dnevnik daily reported.

But why does it need to be covered in a tube anyway It seems somewhat pointless to me. There are several cities in Europe where the trains run, unhindered, overground as well as they do underground. What's the point in covering up those several sections of track?

Sofia Metro to Have 400 000 Passengers Daily in 2012

December 29, 2010



The giant metro tunnel digger employed in Sofia is advancing with 20 meters per day on the route of the second metro line.

The opening of the second line of the Sofia Metro in 2012 will double its load to 400 000 passengers daily, from the current 180 000, according to Sofia Mayor Fandakova.

Fandakova said upon inspecting the subway construction, that the completion of the second line should relieve the traffic in Sofia by 25%.

At present, the Sofia Metro has only one operational line from the Obelya and Lyulin quarters in the northwest to the Mladost 1 quarter in the southeast. The second line will run from the Nadezhda quarter in the north to the downtown quarter of Lozenets, with the two lines crossing in the downtown.

Fandakova inspected the future metro station at the Central Railway Station and the Central Bus State in Sofia. The metro station will have two levels and a parking lot with 160 spots.

The mayor pointed out that the underpasses at the railway station, which at present are in a horrific condition, will be reconstructed and modernized.

The same goes for the underpass of the National Palace of Culture, whose reconstruction will start in 2011.

Fandakova expressed her satisfaction with the work of the special machine for tunnel digging which advances by 20 meters a day.

She said that 51% of all work on the sections of the second metro have already been completed.
