Burgas will have a new harbour station
Burgas will have its harbour station. It will be part of the so called unified transport centre, which will be built in this seaside town. A new harbour station is proposed in each of the three architectural designs submitted for public discussion.
According to the initiative, a zone for public access to the transport centre, combining the three types of transport - rail, coach and sea, will be created in Burgas. The idea is based on the experience of big European port towns. “The realisation of the project will result in a unified transport centre providing a quality service to the public and will offer an opportunity for the development of a yachting port in Burgas”, announced Petar Mutafchiev, Minister of Transport, in June, immediately before the discussion.
He emphasised that this will be the first inter-modal transport complex in Bulgaria. The next one will be built in Varna. “The construction of the transport centre will contribute greatly to the development of tourism and stimulation of business”, added the Minister.
There are two possibilities for financing the project - from structural funds of the European Union or through public-private partnership.
The three architectural designs plan to relocate the existing coach station in order to open the central pedestrian street "Alexandrovska" to the sea; a harbour station; a yachting port; commercial zone and entertainment and attractions areas. The key characteristics of the new transport centre are the sea elements and a unique character, and the ambition is to make this new zone the emblem of the town.
