New Transylvania highway segment to open next spring

Romania’s National Company for Road Infrastructure (CNAIR) has attributed the contract for building the bridge that will connect the Gilau-Nadaselu highway segment to the other segment of the Transylvania highway in Central Romania, the company announced yesterday.

Italian company Tirrena Scavi won the contract with a net value of RON 25.6 million (EUR 5.5 million). The Italian company has 10 months to build the bridge.

From next spring, drivers will be able to use the Gilau-Nadaselu highway segment, which has a length of 8.7 km. This is almost completed but is not linked to the rest of the highway. The bridge crossing the Somesul Mic river will be 320 meters long and will connect the Gilau-Nadaselu and Gilau-Campia Turzii highway segments.

The US group Bechtel built the currently operational Gilau-Campia Turzii highway segment, before the termination of its contract for the Transylvania highway.
