In the report are considered and analyzed the technical condition of the track (its main elements), the most important factor of which depends on the operating speed of the rolling stock. The main parameters of the railway network of the Republic of Bulgaria are outlined. The total length of the railway infrastructure in the country, the average and the density per square meter are stated. territory and analyzed strategies for development and improvement of the state of the network in order to successfully integrate into the Trans-European Transport Network.

The production capacity of NRIC, as the only infrastructure manager of railway infra structure in the Republic of Bulgaria, is 28000 thousand train-kilometers for freight transport and 35000 thousand train-kilometer for passenger transport. The average capacity utilization in the last few years is about 66%. Only in certain railway sections and lines, increased saturation of capacity is achieved due to repairs of the railway and facilities in recent years.

Bulgaria”s railway network is still considered ”closed” mainly due to the insufficient number of established connections with the railway networks of our neighboring countries: Turkey, Greece, Serbia and Romania. Still, Bulgaria does not have a railway connection with the Republic of Macedonia, which severely limits the opportunities for the development of trade relations between neighboring countries and especially our border regions.
