Building of second Sofia metro line put on hold

 Sofia city hall will ask for annulment of the tender for the building of the second line of Sofia's metro network because of the high prices offered by the bidders, Sofia's deputy mayor for transport Velizar Stoilov said, as quoted by Dnevnik daily on March 11.
The determination lies with an ad hoc commission, which includes representatives of the city hall, finance and transport ministries representatives, and could decide to either negotiate down the price with the bidders or to start a new tender.
“The best thing to do and what we'll probably do is to set up a new tender,” Stoilov told The Sofia Echo.
The second line of Sofia's metro will link the Lozenets region with downtown and from there to the Ilientsi district, with a total length of 18km and 15 stations. The stretch for which the tender was called is 6.4km-long and has seven stations, linking Nadezhda district with Cherni Vruh Boulevard in Lozenets region.
