the design speed is intended to be 160 km/h , it's curently lower because they still have unfinished segments + they don't have the capable locomotives for the speed

I read on newpaper than romanian authorities didn't made railway connection between Ford factory in Craiova and national railway network, Constanta port (cars destination for exportation).

How far is it ? Just a few kilometers ?
