A centralized dispatch system will control in real time the run of trains on the 138-kilometer section from Svetovrachane to Sopot. The Minister of Transport, Information Technology and Communications Georgi Todorov inspected the system implementation process. It is located in the Unified Center for Train Traffic Management at Sofia Railway Station. BGN 9,855,361 without VAT have been allocated for its implementation, and the deadline for implementation is July 2022.

There are 16 stations along the controlled route: Svetovrachane, Kremikovtsi, Yana, Stolnik, Sarantsi, Makotsevo, Dolno Kamartsi, Mirkovo, Zlatitsa, Pirdop, Anton, Koprivshtitsa, Stryama, Klisura, Hristo Danovo and Sopot.

"Dispatch centralization is essential for increasing security, improving train run and reducing the human factor in management", Minister Todorov commented at the inspection.

Remote control will be performed by entering centralized commands. In this way, the dispatch center will determine routes for train and shunting movements. At the same time, real-time information on the condition of the signaling equipment and all elements of the security equipment will be received.

The system will report the train position and run of all trains in the controlled area. One of the important functions is the automatic ordering of train routes without the intervention of the operational staff.
