Danish citizens in Sofia and Bulgaria on 25 and 28 June should anticipate road travel disruption during planned protests by unionised bus drivers over new legislation creating a Bulgaria Automobile Chamber (BAC). Local media reports say that 750 buses on 25 June will congregate on Boulevard Tsarigradsko shose in the capital. Earlier, around 1,800 bus drivers on 14 June observed a 90-minute work stoppage throughout the country. The organisers have warned that further strikes and related protests will take place every Thursday from 28 June unless the BAC bill is withdrawn.

Advice
• Anticipate traffic congestion in central Sofia during the protests and allow additional time for overland travel on the day.
• Liaise with local contacts to plan routes bypassing known and likely protest locations as a routine precaution.
• Expect an increased demand for alternative modes of transport such as taxis or rental cars. Book these well in advance to minimise inconvenience on protest days.
• Travellers using buses should anticipate disruption to services while the current industrial dispute continues.
