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.
The meetings for discussing the environmental impact assessment of the Ruse-Veliko Tarnovo highway start at 28th of November in Pavlikeni, Gorna Oryahovitsa, Veliko Tarnovo and Polski Trambesh. The road will include four protected areas and will be close to industrial, residential buildings and agricultural land that is used for cereal, fruits and vegetables growing.
