All trains should have air conditioning by 2017

CFR Calatori is preparing an ample program to equip its trains with air conditioning, on the basis of a minister’s order that stipulates that all railway carriages should be fitted with air conditioning by 2017, including the carriages of Regio trains, CFR Calatori CEO Iosif Szentes stated.
“During the summer there were a lot of complaints concerning air conditioning (in trains), we have a great deal of problems… Let’s hope these deficiencies won’t appear. Now we also have funds allocated in order to organize tenders for air conditioning alone and we have to bear in mind something that presses us: starting in 2017 we have to have air conditioning in all railway carriages, including those of Regio trains,” the head of CFR Calatori pointed out.
According to him, equipping a railway carriage with air conditioning could cost up to RON 400,000.
He emphasized that most Regio trains have air conditioning but this becomes mandatory only in 2017. Currently around 230 railway carriages need air conditioning.
Iosif Szentes took part on Friday in a cultural-educational-social project whose goal was to mark 155 years since the inauguration of the Cernavoda-Constanta railway, the first railway in Dobrogea, and 120 years since the bridges spanning the Danube were built under the leadership of engineer Anghel Saligny.
