The 20 km Elin Pelin-Vakarel railway section in western Bulgaria is set to undergo a €255m upgrade. The National Railway Infrastructure Company signed a €255m contract with Turkish companies Duygu Muhendislik Insaat and Cengiz, which will oversee the modernization project. A new train station will be built in Elin Pelin. Construction will take six years. This is part of a wider railway project that will connect Sofia to Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city.
