Sofia was another Bulgarian town where the rainy storm triggered a drama. Metro, malls, office buildings, shops, subways have been underwater this afternoon. Boulevards turned into rivers, the water at junctions was almost a meter in height, cars and buses from public transport flooded. The electricity was cut off in several neighborhoods.
"By the end of the year the first 20 electric buses would have arrived in Sofia and we need specialists to support them because currently we do not have any." This is what Sofia mayor Yordanka Fandakova said at the opening of the new Center for Diagnostics of Electric and Conventional Vehicles at the Henry Ford Vocational School of Transport and Energy, BGNES reported.
On May 8, Sofia Municipality undertook the long-awaited reconstruction of Graf Ignatiev Street, Mayor Yordanka Fandakova said. The repair will start from "Alabin" street with the replacement of the plumbing pipes. Tram traffic will be stopped. Buses will carry passengers through Gurko Street. Fandakova warned that there would be dismantling activities related to noise.
