The derailment of ammonia tankers near Pirot in Serbia continues to affect international rail traffic in Bulgaria.
Traffic between Pirot and Tsaribrod at the Bulgarian border has come to a 100% halt. There are also restrictions on train movement between Bulgaria and Turkey. Speaking to Bulgarian national television BNT, Director of Bulgarian Railways Atanas Atanasov said that 14 transit trains have been waiting in the country since the beginning of the accident.
Stating that Serbia is working to restore traffic, and that everything possible is being done, Atanasov said: “I think this will happen in a few days.”
The director of the Bulgarian Railways warned that after the reopening of traffic, there will be delays in traffic due to the repairs that will be carried out on the Serbian Railways.
