Project briefing: Gabrovo bypass and Shipka mountain tunnel, Bulgaria
Briefing | 28 April 2012
If implemented as currently planned, the road bypass of the town of Gabrovo, and the tunnel under the Shipka mountain – a project supported by EU funding – will harm a Natura 2000 zone and national biodiversity protected area. This briefing paper gives details on the project and calls on the European Commission to remind Bulgarian authorities of the need to allow for public participation and conduct an environmental assessment that takes alternatives into consideration.
