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.
Veliko Tarnovo road
The Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo has announced the start of the procedures for the selection of a contractor for the complete renovation of the main Bulgaria Street. New traffic organization, new traffic lights with special systems for bus priority and new bus stops with information boards powered by solar energy are envisioned. Besides these renovations, the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo is also planning the construction of two roundabouts. The renovations and constructions should start in early 2020 and are expected to be completed by summer.
According to “Borba” newspaper, a high-speed road, and not a highway will connect Veliko Tarnovo to Ruse and it will pass just 3 km west from the old capital. This was made clear by the investment project, which has already been submitted to Veliko Tarnovo Municipality. The documentation shows the project route on the territory of the municipality. However, the difference in status is not significant for the comfort of travellers.
