In the afternoon of November 11, the traffic on the repaired nearly 22 km from the Pass of the Republic – road II-55, in the section Kilifarevo – Predela is restored. With the completion of the construction works the traffic safety during the forthcoming winter season should be highly increased.
Hainboaz is an extremely tense road artery in our country, with between 8,000 and 12,000 vehicles pass daily through it. The route is the main road connection for the intensive heavy traffic between Northern and Southern Bulgaria, as well as for the passengers from the Danube Bridge 1 border crossing through Stara Planina to the Kapitan Andreevo and Makaza border checkpoint. The condition of the pass on the territory of Veliko Tarnovo region was highly compromised. There were broken safety nets and guardrails, the slopes needed to be torn down and stabilized.
The Ministry of Regional Development and Public Works has given the green light to the project for construction of the route of the Hemus Highway which will pass through the region.
Some of the streets in the centre and the wide centre of Veliko Tarnovo will become one-way and the speed limit will be 30 km. This reduction of traffic aims to both increase the safety on the streets and to create new parking spots. This is indicated by the new plan for the organisation of the traffic in the old capital, which is being introduced by order of Mayor Daniel Panov this year.
