3720 meters of beltway and new streets are going to be built in the area of the southern Bulgarian border town of Svilengrad in order to reduce heavy traffic and congestion in the region.

The new construction is estimated to cost BGN 7,5 M and the funds are going to be provided by the Ministries' Council.

1220 meters are going to be new streets for one of the Svilengrad's newest neighborhoods, located behind the stadium "Kolodruma" where the entire infrastructure and the sewerage system are also going to be built.

The new Svilengrad beltway is going to be 518 meters long and will begin from the new bridge over the "Maritsa" River. The beltway will connect the "Gerban" quarter with the rest of the town and will reduce automobile traffic on the other bridge, which is 500-years old.

After the construction works are finished there will be a public discussion to declare the old bridge a pedestrian zone and historical monument.

The road construction is going to be executed by a company from the Bulgarian city of Haskovo.
