“For the fifth line we have the base structure finished on 91-92 percent, the completion works on 32-35 percent, but there are stations were we have finished works of 70-80 percent, such as Orizont station, Favorit and Drumul Taberei 34. We aim for the end of the first quarter of 2018, for the fifth line to be operational,” said Aldea.

„The sixth line to airport will be finished within 48 months since the works start, as it’s written in the feasibility study. The term is established by specialists and consultants,” added Aldea.
