Sofia Mayor Fandakova: Statements on construction projects, security and pollution
Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova made some interesting announcements on several big construction projects in the Bulgarian capital. She also commented on the alarming air pollution in Sofia. The Mayor was interviewed on the show “The Day Begins with George Lyubenov” on Bulgarian National Television (BNT).

This summer, a huge chaos can be expected in Sofia, since so many boulevards are supposed to be refurbished. On top of that, the construction of the third Metro line will go into its next phase. According to Yordanka Fandakova, some bottlenecks on boulevards, which are connected to the Metro construction, will disappear rather soon. On Boulevard Bulgaria, the process of restoring all lanes next to the Metro construction site had already started, the mayor said.

Boulevard Patriarch Ephtimi, in the very center, will partially reopen for traffic as early as this coming week. Two very deep cavities had been dug here. When the construction started many months ago, all traffic was moved to Boulevard Vassil Levski. The Metro construction is scheduled to be completed in 2019./IBNA
