* The pedestrian underpass in Romana Square and the widening of the Fabrica de Glucoza Street are the most important projects that will start in 2015
Construction sites already opened or set to open in 2015 and located all over Bucharest are welcome for the renewal of Bucharest’s look. Whether we are talking about investments in commercial platforms in Titan or Pantelimon neighborhoods, or about the construction of the pedestrian underpasses in Presei Square or Sudului Square, tower cranes are a sign that Bucharest is changing.
In 2015 the Bucharest City Hall will start two new great infrastructure projects – the pedestrian underpass in Romana Square and the widening of the Fabrica de Glucoza Street which will receive traffic from the Bucharest-Ploiesti Highway.
According to Ion Dedu, head of the Bucharest City Hall’s infrastructure directorate, the budget earmarked for infrastructure projects in 2015 – approximately RON 400 M – will be used to complete the works started in previous years, such as the Sudului Square underpass, the modernization of the Pantelimon-Iancului Street, the expressway toward the A1 Highway and the Ciurel Bridge, but also to finance new projects.
The pedestrian underpass in Romana Square and the widening of the Fabrica de Glucoza Street are the most important projects that will star in 2015.
The Romana Square pedestrian underpass will cost approximately RON 65 M, and the works will last around one year and a half. The goal of the underpass is to ease traffic in the area and to improve pedestrian traffic. The underpass will have five entrances and will be connected to the Romana Square subway station. 40 trees will be planted and a green area of approximately 500 square meters will be arranged above ground.
