The construction of the subway section connecting Bulgarian capital Sofia's Tsarigradsko Shose Blvd and the city's airport is to start on Wednesday.

The section is about 5 km long and includes 4 subway stations. It is expected to become functional in 2015.

Some 1500 workers will be engaged in the construction.

As the Bulgarian National Television has noted, the new subway section will allow passenger to travel the distance between Sofia Airport and downtown Sofia in just 15 minutes.

Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova and Transport Minister Ivaylo Moskovki will be present at the official launch of the construction.

In end-August, 11 new stations of the second metro diameter were opened, connecting Sofia's Nadezhda residential district to the Cherni Vrah Blvd.
