Work on Transylvania Highway continues

Construction works on the Transylvania Highway will continue in Bihor County after the Transportation Ministry earmarks RON 98 M for Bechtel, the highway’s constructor, Transport Minister Ovidiu Silaghi announced on Friday, Mediafax informs. He added that it is in Transylvania’s interest for construction works to continue. “We had talks with the representatives of Bechtel and we should give them another RON 240 M by the end of the month. We already have RON 98 M and they said they’re content with this money too. We didn’t find a wealth at the Transportation Ministry. They will continue to work and we will find solutions for the difference,” Silaghi explained. At the same time he criticized the “slyness” of constructing a highway leading “from nowhere to nowhere,” referring to the Campia Turzii – Gilau section located in Cluj County. Bechtel will continue to work on the Campia Turzii – Gilau and Suplacu de Barcau – Bors sectors, representing 118 kilometers of the highway’s total 415 kilometers. The highway’s route includes another six sections totaling 297 kilometers, namely Brasov – Fagaras (53 km), Fagaras – Sighisoara (52 km), Sighisoara – Ogra (56 km), Ogra – Campia Turzii (36 km), Cluj Vest – Mihailesti (24 km) and Mihailesti – Suplacu de Barcau (76 km).
