CMS has advised China Communications Construction Company Ltd. on structuring and winning a public procurement contract for the Bulgarian railways.

The China Communications Construction Company (CCCC) is a publicly-traded engineering and construction company engaged in the design, construction, and operation of infrastructure assets, including highways, bridges, tunnels, railways, subways, airports, and marine ports.

According to CMS, the Modernization of the Elin Pelin-Kostenets Railroad Section project is financed by the EU Transport and Transport Infrastructure Program 2014-2020 and is worth BGN 1.024 billion. The 51 kilometer route is divided into three sections and the design speed is up to 160 kilometers per hour for conventional trains. More than 20 kilometers of tunnels and 23 bridges and viaducts with a total length of about three kilometers will be built within the project. The modernization of five railway stations is planned, as is the elimination of all intersections among rail transport, traffic, and pedestrians. The contract is expected to be concluded by the end of February 2019.

The CMS team was led by the Partner Kostadin Sirleshtov and Senior Associate Angel Bangachev, supported by Associate Borislava Piperkova and Trainee Diyan Georgiev.
