Sofia’s Second Metrodiameter: On Time and Under Budget

04.09.2012 § 1 Comment

UPDATE: Sofia’s second metrodiameter was unveiled on August 31 in the presence of José Barroso, the current president of the European Commission. This is a monumental achievement for the Bulgarian capital, as it was not only completed on time, but the money saved means that the line could be extended to the airport far earlier than anticipated, possibly even before the 2014 programme cycle of the European Union.

The blue outline denotes the second metrodiameter. The named stations have already been built.

Along with relieving the huge amount of congestion in the valley-enclosed 1.4 million metropolis, the opening of the new line means Sofia’s metro no longer looks like this:

  • Todor Pandeliev says:
