Timisoara, the second Romanian city likely to have subway line

The city of Timisoara is a benchmark for investors at Romanian level, and soon, at European level, considering that in 2015 the local authorities plan to build here metro line. The subway line will have a length of 8 km and will connect downtown to the airport. The project will enter into 2014-2020 budget plan, the funding source being unknown for the moment, according to Timis Online.

The underground line might have five stations: North Railway Station (Gara de Nord), Iulius Mall, East Railway Station (Gara de Est), Zoo, International Airport, said Nicolae Robu, Mayor of Timisoara city.

The International Airport of the biggest city in western Romania reported in 2013 about 750,000 passengers traffic, half a million less than the level of two years ago.

Timisoara City Hall made an analysis from technical, economic, aesthetic, functional perspective, but also in terms of urban development and the conclusion is that an underground line is the “best solution” for Timisoara’s transport system.

Thus, Timisoara will be the second Romanian city after the capital of Bucharest which will have a subway line.
