Bulgaria’s Minister of Transport Nikolay Sabev met with Romania’s Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Sorin Grindeanu, as part of the initiative for facilitating traffic between the two countries. During their meeting, Ministers Sabev and Grindeanu agreed to reopen the Ruse-Giurgiu ferry by June, at the latest, to ease border traffic.

The two ministers expressed the hope that the renovation of Danube Bridge at Ruse can begin as early as this year and end in the spring of next year. Intensive surveys of the bridges will also begin, and a regulation will be signed in March between the ministries of transport of Romania and Bulgaria on how the cross-border procedure will be arranged for all transport vehicles and passengers.
