The European Union will invested EUR 293.4 million under the Cohesion Fund in more modern, faster and safer rail links between the cities of Plovdiv and Burgas, the European Commission said in Bulgaria. This will improve the connection of some of the biggest cities in Bulgaria with one of the most important Black Sea ports.

In this way, the investment will contribute to the construction of the high-speed rail route along the Orient/Eastern Mediterranean corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) linking Central with Southeast Europe.
 
"Thanks to this project, funded by the EU, Bulgarian citizens will be able to travel for shorter time and with increased safety. They will also feel the benefits of better air quality as the project promotes green mobility in the country, "said Regional Policy Commissioner Korina Kretzu.

The project will reduce travel time by 40 minutes for both passengers and freight, as trains will reach a top speed of between 130 and 160 km/h on the 293 km stretch. This will make train travel competitive with road transport and encourage greener mobility in the country. At the same time, a number of measures will lead to increased line safety thanks to the new signaling and telecommunication systems and the replacement of existing railway crossings with 29 overpasses, pedestrian overpasses and subways.
