Presentationof the project  The project envisages the construction of a logistics complex for industrial goods and services and communal services and sports zone over a terrain in the northern industrial zone. The complex surface area will be about 270 decares with the status of zoned industrial land (ZIL) and private municipal property. Plans also include the construction of parks, parking lots, shops >and social infrastructure for the benefit of those working in the area. The logistic advantages of the terrain will be further improved by the building of an overpass over the cargo station railway tracks, securing access to the business zone situated 2 kilometres away at the entry-exit point of Burgas-Sofia, which is also the beginning of Trakia Motorway, and will thus further facilitate the access to Burgas Airport and the big sea resorts to the north of the city. The building of a modern industrial zone on the territory of Burgas Municipality is among the priorities of the municipal administration. Therefore Burgas Municipality applied and was among the selected municipalities for funding from PHARE projects BG2005/017-586.04.01 and BG2006/018-343.10.03 Industrial Zones Development. Under the latter were prepared technical and investment designs for the construction of the leading infrastructure and local lane to the planed construction of the industrial terrain.
Further information By virtue of Decision N8 of 15.12.2006 the Municipal Council approved the street regulation plan (SRP) while the detailed site development plan (DSDP) is currently under preparation.Construction and installation works under the project are planned towards the building of a local lane to Kraiezerna street along the southern border of the terrain. Plans further envisage: water supply and sewerage (WSS) tracing and pipe laying, cable line tracing and pole installation, street lightening and electric boards, canal network tracing, pipe laying and shaft installation, road track tracing, pavement laying and construction of parking lots and sidewalks. The project plans the installation of street lightening, including the lying of the necessary number of lead cables and cassettes. Burgas Municipality has signed a preliminary contract with EVN Bulgaria for the incorporation of consumer sites within the electricity distribution network of EVN Bulgaria Elektrorazpredelenie AD and provision of street lightening for the local lane to Kraiezerna street. For the assurance of the required supply of the future production sites with drinking and industrial water and their proposed activities, the laying of street
water conduits, linked to the urban water supply network and quota secured, is planned along the track of local lane. That is also where the street sewerage, linked to the urban water supply network and the town's waste water treatment plant (WWTP), will be laid. In accordance with the northern industrial zone gasification schedule, the construction of a street gas conduit in accordance with the legislation has been designed.
Investment opportunities The terrain is municipal property. Burgas Municipality is searching for partners in order to develop engineering infrastructure of the industrial zone and further management.
Indicative value  The determination of accurate project value requires the conduction of feasibility study and investment project. The expected project value is around 20 millions leva.

Presentationof the project 

The municipality intends to review the current local parking regulations and amend them significantly in order to introduce parking payment machines and facilitate control reinforcement at entry. The introduction of SMS- and ticket-payable parking in specified zones is also in the municipality’s interest. The use of wheel clamps, to be removed upon the payment of a fine, as well as the expansion of the activity of tow-away trucks and designation of parking violators compound around the stadium have further been planned as tools against parking violation. Parking areas, assigned specifically for heavy-goods trucks in the vicinity of the seaport and the industrial zone, are also envisaged.

Burgas will benefit from the introduction of information boards about the realtime parking conditions, situated at main entrance roads to the city centre. Such a parking information system will inform those going to work about free parking places on or away from streets. The system will be introduced after the launch of “blue zone” parking.

Further information

There are intentions to set up a call centre, including a parking control centre, which will enable the municipality to provide better service to parking users and exercise more effective control over the observation of regulations.
