Repair works at the Bucharest-Constanta railway route, which started in 2006, and whose completion is two years late already, are responsible for train trips linking the two destinations taking a minimum of four hours. The Cernavoda-Constanta motorway construction works too are behind schedule and are still to have urbanism certificates approved. Adding to all this is the shuting down of car traffic across the Cernavoda Bridge for at least a year, lest funding from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) goes to waist. According to ‘Romania Libera’, the shutdown would pose drivers no problem provided the Romanian National Company of Motorways and National Roads (CNADNR) opens in June of this year vehicle traffic on the stretches Cernavoda-Medgidia and Medgidia-Constanta of the “Sun” Motorway, as it pledged along with motorway constructors Colas and Max Bogl, according to a constructor familiar with the project. The two road stretches, the former mostly, holds no chance to be ready this year, which means the CNADNR will have to pay damage compensations to constructors for being behind schedule, on grounds it has not even secured the urbanism certificate for 13 kms of the 20km-long first stretch and its failure to make the expropriations required for the project to be completed.
