Lines of waiting cars hinder traffic to Bulgaria's Black Sea coast and Greece

A few days before the official start of the seaside holiday season, kilometers of queues of cars clogged the bypass of the Trakia highway through Stara Zagora, Nova TV reported. The columns of cars at the exit of the Trakia highway near Chirpan to the village of Rakitnitsa reached 15 km before noon.

Hundreds of cars waited for at least an hour to cross the Makaza border crossing between Bulgaria and Greece around noon today. Then the traffic decreased, but in the early afternoon a kilometer-long column formed, mostly of Romanian cars. Traffic to the Makaza border checkpoint was further hampered by a protest in Kardzhali, due to the forthcoming permission for high-rise construction at the entrance to the town.

The traffic jams on the border with Bulgaria's southern neighbor were formed due to random tests for Covid-19, as well as the closed checkpoint at Ilinden-Exohi.
