The General Council of Bucharest approved the start of the program ‘No street left unpaved and without public utilities.’ The investments are subject to the approval of a commission and will be made using public funds.
In Bucharest there are about 270 streets without asphalt and utilities, said Bucharest mayor Gabriela Firea.
The municipal investment program ‘No streets unpaved and without public utilities’ has as a general objective the completion of the process of endowment with public utilities and modernization of the road system for the streets in Bucharest, the draft decision reads. The specific objectives of the program are the endowment of the non-modernized streets in Bucharest with public water supply, sewerage and pluvial sewage networks where possible, public lighting and the modernization of the road system. The funds needed to finance the multiannual program are provided by the local budget of the Municipality of Bucharest’ the document said.
“In Bucharest there are about 270 streets without asphalt and utilities: 94 streets are in Sector 1, 11 streets in Sector 2, 33 in Sector 2, 40 streets in Sector 4, 11 streets in Sector 5 and 77 in Sector 6. I know it is hard to believe that there are 270 streets without asphalt and utilities in the capital. This program will begin immediately, we will prioritize these streets. If the list to be published, you may have missed a street, the program is open, you can add any other street. This program will be finalized when there will be no other street in Bucharest without asphalt and utilities. The works will be executed by municipal companies and private companies that will participate in the auction. Our goal is to work on as many streets as possible,” said Mayor Gabriela Firea at the beginning of the General Council meeting.
