Investment in the long-distance road network
Roads connect people, markets and countries. At the same time, they are a key factor in economic success. In Romania, these are important reasons to invest in expanding the motorway network - not least also to promote economic growth and in some cases, make it possible in the first place. An important pan-European goods route with the corresponding heavy traffic passes through this south-east European country, but these long-distance roads are in need of rehabilitation, even though at just 750 kilometres, the network is comparatively small.
Romania has set itself the goal of catching up Europe – and also of launching an infrastructure programme. Overall, the aim is to extend the country’s motorways to a total length of 2,710 kilometres. An impressive 223 kilometres are currently under construction.
