Railway Upgrade Project Worth 33.7 Mln Euro Takes Off

A 66 million lev ($45.7 million/33.7 million euro) project for the reconstruction of a railway section connecting the towns of Pazardzhik and Stamboliyski will be officially launched on Tuesday, the transport ministry said. 
Following the upgrade, which is co-financed by the EU under operational programme Transport 2007-2013, trains will be able to run at a speed of 160 kilometres per hour in this section.
The project is part of a 257 million lev programme for the rehabilitation of the railway section connecting Septemvri, near Pazardzhik, with Plovdiv, the second largest city in Bulgaria. Works under the programme are scheduled for completion by the end of 2015, the ministry said earlier.
