EU Gives Green Light to Bulgaria-Greece Railway Project

The European Union has given the green light to a railway project which will link the ports of Kavala and Alexandroupolis in Greece with Varna and Burgas in Bulgaria.

The railway section will be a part of the Trans-European railway network, state-run Bulgarian National Radio reported on Monday.

Bulgarian and Greek experts have been working on a project for a transport corridor linking the Aegean and the Black Sea for over two years, local news portal Mediapool quoted Alexandroupolis port officials as saying.

The EU is financing the project's feasibility study which will absorb 2.5 million euro ($3.0 million) and will be launched in September.
