Sofia's metro will not reach Mladost until end next year

Date: 17.12.2007

It would be at least another year before Sofia's metro was to reach the Mladost neighbourhood.

On December 13, Transport Minister Petar Moutafchiev and deputy mayor for transport of the Sofia municipality Velizar Stoilov inspected progress on the construction of the metro between Sofia university and Yunak stadium. Construction of the metro to the Mladost neighbourhood on Sofia's outskirts, was expected to be ready by late 2008, but would not be put into service until early 2009, Stoilov said.

Japanese company Taisei Corporation, which had constructed the section, would be fined for not meeting deadlines, Stoilov said.

Fines were expected to amount to $4 million (2.75 million euro).

The section from Yunak stadium to Mladost would be financed from the state budget, for which for 2007 an additional 27 million leva had been earmarked, Moutafchiev said.

One of the first projects to receive money from the operative programme transport, would be the metro line between Sofia Airport and the central station and bus station, Moutafchiev said.

The total value of the section was almost 185 million euro.
