Works on Sibiu-Pitesti Highway to start in mid-2016

Transport Minister Iulian Matache states that the works could effectively start in mid-2016. “Until then there will be local debates in each county transited by this highway, in order to identify possible problems. There are five sections; at the end of the year we will have the tender books ready and we will start the tenders for the first and final sections, so that works will effectively start halfway through the year,” Transport Minister Iulian Matache stated for Adevarul Live.
The Sibiu-Pitesti Highway, one of the most highly-awaited in Romania, was included in the first version of the Transport Master Plan as an expressway, being later included, at the end of public debates, as a highway that calls for an estimated investment of EUR 1.67 bln.
The Sibiu-Pitesti Highway will have a length of approximately 120 kilometres.
The National Highway Company and the association formed by Spea Ingegneria Europea (Italy) and Tecnic Consulting Engineering Romania signed, in mid-June, the contract for the updating of the feasibility study for the Sibiu-Pitesti Highway. The contract has a value of RON 29 M, VAT not included.
