Subway to reach Studentski grad?
The municipality of Sofia is thinking over the possibility for a subway connection of the district “Studentski grad” to the center of Sofia. The idea involves a change in the general urbanization plans and the construction of another branch of tunnels beneath the “Nikola Vaptsarov” blvd.
“Over 25 000 young people live in “Studentski grad”, and this wil be very convenient transport for them to the central parts of the city and several main universities. We were informed of a very serious discussion on the subject of connecting “Studentski grad” with an already existing metro branch”, explained the minister of transport Petar Mutafchiev.
He and the mayor of Sofia Boiko Borisov personally oversaw the construction of the subway section between the Central station in Sofia and “Cherni vrah” blvd.
The chief of “Metropliten” Stoyan Bratoev however, was not very optimistic when asked if this subway extension will be a fact soon.
