Overall, the Brăila bridge project provides for about 23 kilometers of connecting roads.
“On one hand, we have the bridge itself, whose construction is advancing according to the schedule, and, on the other hand, the connecting roads on the banks of Brăila and Jijila, completely unblocked this year, along their entire length.

According to the minister, the money invested so far proves that the project is a really complex one. “Since the beginning of the year until now, European funds worth RON 466 million have been absorbed for the Brăila Bridge ”, Drula added.
