Railways to facilitate traffic at Bulgaria-Turkey border

As of today, between 60 and 80 TIR trailers will be transported to and from Turkey each day onboard a train. The Bulgarian Ministry of Transport is negotiating with the railway haulers to buy more wagons. Thus, trailers of more than 100 cargo vehicles will be transported to and from Turkey on a daily basis within two weeks. As a result, the long lines of trucks on the Bulgaria-Turkey border will be avoided.
