State puts 182 kms of motorway up for tender

The National Company of Motorways and National Roads (CNADNR) has put up for tender the construction of 182 kilometres of motorway, namely the stretches Nadlac-Arad, Timisoara-Lugoj, Lugoj-Deva and Orastie-Sibiu, “Romania Libera” reports. The offers will be opened in mid February. Works are stipulated to be performed over a period of 30 months, of which the first six will be allotted to the drafting of technical projects. If the contracts are signed by this coming summer, then works will only be completed at the end of 2013. The segments Arad-Timisoara and Deva-Orastie have already been assigned to the companies FCC-Alpine and Strabag-Straco respectively. The tender participations criteria are quite tough to meet, at least for Romanian constructors. In order to qualify to the tender for construction of the first 22 km of the Nadlac-Arad motorway, participants must make proof of an average turnover in excess of EUR 100 M during 2007-2009, a demand that could only be met by three to four Romanian companies, most likely Spedition, UMB, Romstrade, Technologica Radion and Delta ACM.

Although the Transport Ministry issued the standard costs for the motorway construction, they will nonetheless count all too little at auctions with a total value in excess of EUR 1 bln.
