SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 2 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's government said on Wednesday it decided to open a tender for a concession contract for the operation of an intermodal terminal in the country's second largest city of Plovdiv.
The concession will be granted for a period of 27 years, the government press office said in a statement.
The terminal should be fully operational by early December, the transport ministry said last week.
Its construction totalled 13.94 million levs ($7.9 million/7.12 million euro) and took about two and a half years, according to data published on the website of Trace Group Hold, the local company which carried out the construction works. The project was funded by the EU and the state budget.
