Veliko Tarnovo – Elena Road is now open again

elena

The new road is looking good.

The road connecting Veliko Tarnovo and Elena is officially open from today. The lot was closed for the last six months following the landslides in December which split it in two. The reconstruction of the road was completed within the set time limit and only the horizontal road markings need to be painted. Due to the recent precipitations it was not done but once the weather allows it the process will be finished.

During the rehabilitation of the road more than 90 reinforced concrete beams were placed along the trace to provide further protection; each of them is 8 m long. Surface and ground waters which were the main reason for triggering the landslides are now drained through newly-built ditches.
