New subway station opens in Bucharest’s District 4
The new Tudor Arghezi subway station on Berceni Road, in Bucharest’s District 4, was inaugurated on Wednesday, November 15. At the same time, the park & ride facility built close to the new station was also opened, offering drivers 350 parking spaces.
The City Hall of District 4 built the station in partnership with Metrorex.
The trains started running just before noon on Wednesday. In the first phase, the subway trains are scheduled to use a single line and stop at the Tudor Arghezi station every 8 minutes. The waiting time is estimated to drop to 4 minutes once the automation system is completed, according to the City Hall.
“Today we mark a very important moment in the development of Bucharest,” District 4 mayor Daniel Baluta said at the inauguration, quoted by Euronews Romania.
According to a previous announcement from the District 4 City Hall, the project was developed with an investment of EUR 50 million, covered with non-refundable funds.
