Lantania to modernise two railway lines in Bulgaria

Lantania will carry out in consortium with Geostroy, one of the main construction companies in Bulgaria, the modernization of the railway lines of Plovdiv-Krumovo, Plovdiv-Skutare and the Plovdiv railway junction. This project amounts to EUR 67.7 million and has been awarded by the National Railway Infrastructure Company of Bulgaria (NRIC).

The actions of the consortium of which Lantania is a member will last three years and will involve the modernisation of 25 km of track to adapt the speed of trains to 160 km/h, which will require the construction of new routes with platform and structural civil engineering, the renovation of the railway track and the traction and catenary system. In addition, the entire signalling and communications system will be renewed to adapt it to the European ERTMS standard.
