Svilengrad - Turkish border railroad unveiled

Bulgaria is a gate of Europe. That was what PM Marin Raikov said at the unveiling of the first closed railway project under the Transport OP – the Svilengrad – Turkish border railroad.

In the words of the premier a modern part of a much bigger project has been executed, no matter that these are only 18 km. Mr. Raikov pointed out that the presence of Turkish guests was a sign for joint work. We came here with up to 120 km/h, Transport Minister Kristian Krastev said, voicing his hope that over the next programme period trains, speeding up to 160 km/h will be bought with EU money.
