Finalizing the Bucharest – Ploiesti highway on time – December 31, 2011 – seems mission impossible said President Traian Basescu on Tuesday after visiting the site, according to Mediafax newswire.

The president said that it is hard to say whether the deadline will be met or not. “Right now it seems mission impossible, but we shall see,” said Basescu according to Mediafax. He explained that there are some sections of the highway that are in an advanced stage while others are behind schedule.

The president also said that he will not discuss the issue with the constructors as he believes that this is the minister of transports’ job.

He stated however, that the constructors have a moral duty towards him to complete works on time as he has promoted the idea that Romanian companies too take part in the construction process and not simply work as subcontractors of foreign ones.
