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.
