Bulgaria-Greece rail link could benefit from EU funding

EU funding will be provided for the construction of the railway link between Bulgaria and Greece, emerged after a meeting between Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, EC President Jean-Claude Juncker and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. The three held discussions in Brussels, within the framework of the European Council.
According to Prime Minister Borisov, the project Thessaloniki-Kavala-Alexandroupolis-Bourgas-Varna-Rousse, signed in Kavala, is of strategic importance not only for the two countries but also for the development of the region as a whole. Bulgaria’s prime minister also noted the progress of interconnector work with Greece.
It is expected to attract large investors from the Middle East, China, Russia and other major markets.
The project involves the construction of a double-track electrified railway, including the implementation of ERTMS.
