Sibiu-Pitesti expressway could become highway… after 2020

During the debate on the Transport Master Plan, a debate that took place yesterday, Transport Minister Ioan Rus pointed out that the modernization of the Sibiu – Pitesti expressway (as foreseen in the Master Plan) to highway level is possible after 2020.
The official pointed out that the issue of this highway will be discussed again with the representatives of AECOM, the state’s consultant in drafting the Master Plan, and that when the document becomes operational “some corrections” are possible.
He pointed out that bearing in mind that the construction of an expressway would be 25-30 per cent cheaper the difference could be used for other projects and in the second stage, after 2020, the Sibiu-Pitesti expressway could be transformed into a highway. In the current form of the Master Plan, the Sibiu-Pitesti expressway has an estimated cost of EUR 1.97 bln.
