EU’s TEN-T program will co-finance, with almost EUR 1 M, studies for the development of better freight and passenger transport links between Bucharest’s airport and the country’s main railway lines and highways.
The project includes feasibility, juridical and environment studies for a new link between Bucharest’s Henri Coanda Airport, the Brasov-Bucharest-Slobozia-Constanta railway line and the Romanian network of highways.
The studies are part of a larger project that includes the construction of a multimodal terminal for freight and passenger transport in the Bucharest-Ilfov region, close to Otopeni city, at the intersection between the highway that links Constanta (Romania) to Budapest (Hungary) and the railway line that runs from Constanta to Nuremberg/Dresden (Germany).
The project has been selected for financing from the EU, with the help of foreign experts, as part of the TEN-T 2013 annual call for proposals. Its implementation will be monitored by the European Commission’s Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA).
The project has to be completed by December 2015.
The TEN-T program was created by the European Commission in order to support the construction and improvement of transport infrastructure in the European Union.
