Bucharest- Constanta railway to be modernized by July

The modernization works on the Bucharest-Constanta railway will be completed by July, and, from that time onwards, trains will cover the respective distance in two and a half hours, the minister of Transports, Anca Boagiu, claimed, quoted by Mediafax. The passengers’ trains will be running at a speed of 160 km/ hour, and freight trains at 120 km/ hour. Rehabilitation works on the Bucharest-Constanta railway started in 2006, under the direction of Gheorghe Dobre, the then-minister of Transports, Constructions and Tourism, and were initially expected to be completed by 2009, but works were delayed by about two years. The cost of works to modernize the 228 kilometre-long railway section amount to a little over EUR 913 M, according to calculations based on the figures supplied, at the end of the preceding year, by the Minister of Transports and Infrastructure.
