“We will not allow to welcome the winter season and the tourists in Bansko with dug out mud streets. By the end of November, the repair works will be completed. Ikonomov admits that implementation of the water cycle delayed with 2 years. The contractor had no capacity to complete it in time and the contract can’t be terminated. Currently, the municipality is considering a solution” said the mayor of the town of Georgi Ikonomov.
Ikonomov commented also that renewed lift from Shiligarnika to Todorka will go the same route but with improved capacity and speed. So far the distance of 2350 meters was covered for 20 minutes with the three-chair lift. Now the six-chair lift, with a capacity of 2400 people per hour and will reach the top in just 6 minutes. The modernized lift will serve several runs.
