Bulgaria Capital Sofia to Launch New Metro Line

Date: 08.05.2009

The Bulgarian capital Sofia's opening officially today part of the extension of the first Sofia Metro line.

The line connecting the Mladost 1 residential quarter and the main building of the Sofia University "St. Kliment of Ohrid" in dowtown Sofia is 6 km long.

It has five subway stations. The distance will be covered in 10 minutes. The line will initially be served by four trains traveling at seven-minute intervals.

The constructing of the extension to be opened Friday started in 2006. Part of the line between Interpred and the Darvenitza Quarter does not run underground.

The Metropolitan company, which is in charge of constructing and running the Sofia subway has promised that the final part of the first metro line, which is located in the downtown between the Serdica Metro Station and the Sofia University Metro Station, would be completed by the end of September 2009.

Until then, the two parts of the first metro line - the currently existing part from the Obelya Quarter to Serdica, and the new part opened today - from the Mladost Quarter to Sofia University - will be functioning independently of one another.

With the completion of the connection between Serdica and Sofia University, the first line of the Sofia Metro will be completed, thus connecting directly Sofia's two largest residential quarters - Lyulin and Mladost.

Two more metro lines are planned to be built in Sofia by 2014.
