The repair works in Bulgaria’s Varna Asparuhovo district continue after the devastating floods that hit the Black Sea city in June.

The district mayor Yordan Nikolov has told Focus news agency that over 90% of the damages in the area have already been recovered.

The reconstruction and rehabilitation of the main boulevards used by the city public transport has been completed on Friday. The small streets will also be repaired soon, BTV reports.

The cleaning, removal of mud and garbage disposal is underway, and more than 90% of the streets have been washed.

Currently the slopes in the area are being reinforced and retaining walls are constructed near landslides. The local landslips in private property have already been stabilized, the district mayor assured.

Active landslides on both sides of drainage gullies have been more and more dangerous to flood-stricken district, experts have warned. Landslides have been active after flash floods took twelve lives in Asparuhovo in June, with poor drainage having significantly contributed to the death toll.
