The Dancila government on Sunday signed three important infrastructure projects: the first part of the Sibiu-Pitesti motorway, a segment of the Bucharest ring road as well as moving forward on the new subway line in Drumul Taberei, Bucharest.
The first segment of the long-awaited Sibiu-Pitesti motorway (Sibiu-Boita) will be 13 km long and take 4 years to complete, with an investment of EUR 10 million per kilometre. The company that will build the segment will be Porr Construct.
Segment 3 of the Bucharest ring road, located to the south of the city, will be built by companies Aktor from Greece and Euro Construct Trading 98 from Romania for EUR 180 million excluding VAT. The segment will be about 18 km long and the works are expected to take a total of 42 months, of which 12 will be for planning. The segment will connect the A1 and A2 motorways.
The third contract signed by the government on Sunday was for the traffic safety and automation system for the Drumul Taberei subway line. The contract is worth RON 113 million excluding VAT and the execution period is 9 months, although the Transport minister has stated that signing the contract at this time will mean that the line will be operational by the end of the year.
