Comarnic-Brasov highway route is changed

The route of the Comarnic-Brasov highway was changed almost one month before the winner of the concession agreement. Thus, the highway will no longer “almost cut through the middle of Busteni”, after it was decided that approximately 10 km of tunnel will be built on the approximately 58 km long highway, according to the General Manager of CNADNR, Narcis Neaga, as cited by gandul.info. “If we had followed the route indicate din the feasibility study, the highway would have cut right through the middle of Busteni locality”, Narcis Neaga stated for Gandul. “Practically three tunnels will be built: at Sinaia, Busteni and Predeal, amounting to 10 km”, he added.
Both the new highway route and the maximum price threshold at which the negotiation for the final price will start will not be made public during the negotiations. “The offers will start on October 15 and the agreement will be signed after. I expect the work will be completed in 2016,” Neaga optimistically forecasted. The CNADNR Manager also explained that during the competitive dialogue it was decided to increase the designing speed from 80 km/h, as specified in the feasibility study for a large stretch of the Comarnic-Brasov highway, to 100-120 km/h. “The initial speed was more for a national road, but we agreed it would be a highway,” the CNADNR Manager said further. In turn, the Prahova County Council chief, Mircea Cosma, said the highway would be “much more picturesque” than the route specified in the feasibility study.
