The contract with Salini Impregilo to build segment no.3 of the Orastie – Sibiu Motorway has been cancelled, and a process to select a new company to remedy the deficiencies in that area will be started, with works to be completed in August, said Transport Minister Dan Costescu (photo).
Under these circumstances, the traffic on the said motorway could be resumed in September this year.
‘I have received a communication from CNADNR [the National Company of Motorways and National Roads] for the cancellation of the contract with the current constructor [for segment no. 3 of the Orastie-Sibiu Motorway]. At the same time, a new call for tenders for selecting the new constructor to fix the deficiencies will be launched. The deadline for these works, if no dispute arises, is August. That means in early or in mid-September, motorway traffic may be resumed,’ the transport minister told a Wednesday’s conference at the ministry’s headquarters.
A document of the Ministry of European Funds shows that the motorway in question has Q3 2018 as completion deadline and the remaining investment amounts to 92.4 million euros.
