The reconstruction of Tsar Ivan Shishman Street in the city center started on May 10. The section that will be renovated is between Gen. Parensov Street and Narodno Sabranie Square and new infrastructure is being built. Residents there will be without hot water for about 5 months due to major repairs of the roadway and the construction of a new main heating system. Teams of Sofiyska Voda and Toplofikacia will work there until September, and the reconstruction of the street itself will last one year.
Due to the repairs, the street will be closed for car traffic, but the reconstruction will not affect pedestrians.
The complete renovation of the road surface, sidewalks and lighting is expected to start in September. The road surface and the pavement will be made of concrete and granite blocks. The sidewalk will be separated from the roadway by granite slabs. In order to limit the speed of cars to a maximum of 20 km/h, the intersections will have speed bumps.
