Background & Policy context

This action is part of the construction of intermodal terminal in Central North Planning Development Region in Bulgaria - Ruse" global project that aims to improve intermodality in the south-eastern region of the EU. It plans to create the conditions for the optimal combination and integration of various transport modes and a higher quality of freight transport services. This can pave the way for low-cost, high-volume freight transport from the Black Sea area to Central Europe and the EUN "poles" of trade. It will also allow new demands to be met, as the latest forecasts show a significant increase in traffic in regards to Turkey-Ukraine/Russia.


These studies aim to provide technical assistance for the preparation of the global project, and thus contribute to its timely and efficient implementation.

The project includes the preparation of a feasibility study together with all the necessary technical, economic and environmental evaluations; preparation of the conceptual design; development of procurement strategy and preparation of tender documentation for the construction works. Special attention shall be given to the development of logistic transport chain for multi-modal transport from the Black Sea to the Danube river, passing through the railway (Varna-Ruse).
