Sofia Opened Metro Line M2 Extension

Sofia metro is the rapid transit network servicing the Bulgarian capital city Sofia. As of July 2016, the Sofia Metro consists of two interconnected lines, serving 35 stations, with a total route length of 40.0 kilometers being among the top 30 of the most extensive European metro systems. The Metro links the densely populated districts of Lyulin – Mladost (Line 1 – Red) and Nadezhda – Lozenets (Line 2 – Blue). Also, since 2 April 2015, Line 1 has been servicing the Sofia Airport.

On July 20, 2016, an extension of Sofia metro Line M2 was opened by Prime Minister Boyko Borissov. The 1.3 km underground alignment south from James Bourchier to Vitosha took two years to build. Construction cost €26.4m, of which €22m came from EU funds for the 2014-20 budget period. Metro operator Sofia Metropoliten estimates that the extension will increase ridership on the two-line metro network from 335 000 passengers/day to 350 000. A third line is under construction and due to open in 2019.

Sinorock self drilling anchor bolts have been devoting themselves to a large number of famous metro tunnels at home and abroad, such as Beijing Metro line 10, Harbin Metro and Santiago Metro Line 6, etc.. Self drilling anchor bolt system has a significant advantage of reducing construction cost and shorten construction period due to the feature of simultaneous drilling, installation and grouting. It’s safe, reliable and efficient.
