Sova looks for solutions to save Transilvania Motorway

The Minister Delegate for Major Projects, Dan Sova, said yesterday that, in his opinion, the only solution for the Transylvania Motorway was to finalise the agreement with Bechtel and then find a viable financing solution. ‘We will also talk to Bechtel – is that we should terminate this agreement once and for all and each of us take responsibility for our mistakes,’ Sova said, Mediafax reports. He also mentioned the Bors-Brasov motorway should be 415 km long and only 86 km had been completed since 2003, of which 53 km were usable and EUR 1,300,000,000 had been paid from the budget. The official noted the Bechtel agreement had been signed by the PSD Government  during the 2001-2004 term, when EUR 50 M was spent, but the EUR 1.3 bn was spent because of ‘Minister Dobre’s wisdom’, from the PDL Government. In other topic, the Minister-Delegate said he had asked the prime minister’s Control Corps to initiate ‘a comprehensive thematic inspection’ at CNADNR, looking into all public spendings in the previous five years. ‘I have asked to see data on absolutely all expenditures with consultancy, to see if contractual terms have been met, why extra disbursements have been made and whether tendering procedures have been correct,’ Dan Sova told the MPs members of the Budget and Finance Committees. Sova added the comprehensive checks would be completed by August, because they would also include the seven regional departments in charge of roads and bridges.
