Burgas, Varna to Get New Traffic Towers
Thursday, 01 January 1970
Bulgarian state-owned company Port Infrastructure said it will launch a 3.7 million levs ($2.5 million/1.9 million euro) project for the construction of two traffic-towers at the two biggest Black Sea ports, Burgas and Varna.
The contract, signed on June 24, is part of a project for Vessel Traffic Management Information Systems (VTMIS) and is financed under the EU operational program Transport 2007-2013, a statement published on Port Infrastructure’s website showed.
The construction of the new traffic towers aims to provide an integrated system that will facilitate monitoring, management, research and data exchange on Bulgaria's maritime territory.
Local consortium Midia-Diana Commerce will perform the construction works, which are expected to be completed by June 2014.
The public consultations on the architecture of the traffic-tower at the port of Burgas took place last week, weekly Stroitelsvo Gradat reported on Monday.
