Three major infrastructure investment projects have been signed at Victoria Palace on Sunday.
The first one is section one of the Pitesti-Sibiu highway. Those 13 km of highway (from Sibiu to Boita) will be concluded in the coming 4 years, with the value of contract mounting to RON 129 million without VAT, meaning EUR 10 million per kilometer. The construction company to build it is Porr Construct Ltd. The construction works are estimated to take 48 months, 12 months for designing and 36 months for the execution of works.
The second such project is section 3 of the Bucharest’s ring road, which will stretch on about 18 kilometers. The consortium that won the tender and will receive EUR 180 million consists of Greek company Aktor and Euroconstruct Trading 98 Ltd from Romania. The works are estimated to last 42 months.
The Bucharest South Ring road Highway will link A1 highway (Bucharest-Pitesti) to A2 (Bucharest-Constanta), on the Pan European Corridor 4.
PM Viorica Dancila said about this projects that „we managed to provide the needed European financing for it, despite the fact that some Romanian politicians tried in Brussels to block the EU funds for this extremely important project for Bucharest and Romania”.
The third project is to unblock the metro line 5 in Bucharest (Raul Doamnei-Eroilor in Drumul Taberei district), with the Transport minister Razvan Cuc announcing it will be operational as of next year. It comes after a contract Metrorex signed with Alstom Transport and it is worth almost RON 113 million. Period of completion-nine months.
