Prime Minister Victor Ponta announced yesterday that he would present the 2014-2018 highway network development strategy today, together with Ramona Manescu, Minister of Transport, and Dan Sova, Minister for Major Projects, Mediafax notes.
On the other hand, Dan Sova, Minister Delegate for Infrastructure Projects, stated Sunday in Iasi that Moldova will be linked both to Transylvania, via Iasi-Targu Mures highway, and central Romania, via Bacau-Brasov highway. Both construction projects will probably be initiated in 2015 and work for the stretch of highway between Iasi and Targu Neamt could be concluded by mid-2017, he added.
“Our objective is to connect Moldova both to Transylvania through the Iasi-Targu Mures highway, and to central Romania through Bacau-Brasov highway. The latter will be carried out with regional development funds and the project will be awarded sometime in mid-2015. No feasibility studies have been conducted for that project, so there will be a bid. The project will be awarded in 2015,” Dan Sova stated. The Brasov-Bacau highway will be extended to Iasi, he concluded.
