Due to the snowfall, the planned closing of “Vitinya” Tunnel on “Hemus” Highway leading from Sofia to Varna today is delayed. The tunnel had to be closed today between 11:00 a.m. and 15:00 p.m. but it will stay open, according to Dnevnik. 

Meanwhile an official survey on the installation in the tunnel had to be conducted, where cables and daub fell over a passing bus a couple of days ago. 

Because of the weather condition the two-way road is accessible, announced Road Infrastructure Agency. 

Road Infrastructure Agency is reminding that citizens and transport companies could receive current travel- and transport information on this site:, on non-stop line 0700 130 20, as well as on the mobile application LIMA.
