According to Ivanov, a large part of the inner streets have also been treated. “From the control, I personally exercised, I saw that most of the transport stops are being cleared. After the approaches to the subways are processed, the sidewalks will be cleared as well,” he stressed.

“Currently, the road to Vitosha Nature Park is being closed to be cleared from snow. There the snow cover is about 40 centimeters. It is not allowed to use reagents in the area, so when the snow is pushed - the road will be open,” Ivanov added.
