My pleasure! Now this thread can go back to sleep for another year or so, before the opening of M5.

Or the municipality may decide to keep it alive by opening M5 this year, or by buying some new buses, or by opening new dedicated bus lines, or buying new trams ...

It won't happen. There are no trains to run on M5, anyway, so I don't expect anybody to hurry up w. the opening of M5. As you probably know, the tender on train aquisition for M5 was suspended in 2015 following the Anti-Corruption Directorate's intervention in investigating an alleged tender fix, with several Metrorex and Spanish CAF officials getting arrested at that time. The court has now finally ruled that the respective tender can be cancelled, so a new one can be launched, but it will take some before the winner of the new tender can be selected and the trains delivered.

If anything, we could have some news regarding M6, as the contract for design&build for this line should be awarded by the end of the year. But of course, w. PSD in charge, nothing is certain.

Yeah. It's official. M5 opening is for next year.



Drumul Taberei metro line, ready in April 2018

Quote:
The works on the subway line 5 that will link Drumul Taberei District to the Bucharest’s center will be over at the end of April next year, the Romanian Transport minister announced in Parliament on Thursday, as quoted by Digi24.
However, Bucharesters will be able to actually use the metro on that line at the end of June 2018.

The line being extended, Metro Line 5, has a length of 6.7 km, and includes 10 metro stations as well as a depot at its western end. Each train will have six cars and are expected to travel at speeds of up to 80 km/h.

Metro line 5 represents the fifth metro corridor in Bucharest, and is increasing the total length of the network from 69 km to about 76 km.

The project created an estimated 48 jobs during the implementation process, and 1, 200 new jobs upon completion.

The total project value is over EUR 480 million.

In July last year, the European Commission (EC) approved a financial contribution of EUR 170 million grant funds for major changes in “Bucharest subway line 5 line 5 project, Raul Doamnei – Eroilor (PS Opera) section, including Valea Ialomitei.

Bucharest buys electric buses, installs sockets for electric vehicles

Quote:
Bucharest City Hall will buy 100 electric buses and the necessary charging infrastructure for them.

Bucharest’s General Council has agreed, in principle, with this purchase, which will be prepared by the public transport company RATB.

The municipality may also set up 30 charging stations for electric vehicles in public parking. This project needs to be approved by the General Council.

The investment in such a station ranges between EUR 5,000 and EUR 30,000 based on functions. The municipality currently doesn’t have such charging stations but several private ones exist at Kaufland hypermarkets and OMV gas stations.

Both projects are part of Bucharest’s strategy to reduce pollution caused by traffic.

Another project approved by the General Council provides a RON 500 bonus for Bucharesters who buy bikes and other ecological transport means. The project will first distribute 5,000 such vouchers to Bucharest citizens over 18 who decide to buy bikes and other electric transport means.

EUR 34 mln for metro line extension in Northern Bucharest
21 Aug 2017

Quote:
The project extending the metro line 4 between the Bazilescu park and the Straulesti neighborhood in Northern Bucharest will receive a EUR 34.2 million financing for its second stage.

The money comes from EU’s Cohesion Fund. Corina Cretu, the EU Commissioner for regional policy, approved the financing last week.

The metro line connecting Bazilescu to Straulesti could be operational after March 2018, Cretu said. The money will be used to build 2 kilometers of metro line and two new metro stations, namely Laminorului and Straulesti.

I seriously doubt that blue line from Gara de Nord to Otopeni airport will be built by 2020

It shouldnt be so hard... the stretch from Gara de Nord would probably be shared with M4, right? Then it might be mostly overground, not in tunnel, since the way to the airport isnt well populated and urbanised much.

The map is old, those were the plans a few years back when perhaps having M6 to the Airport would have been feasible by 2020. Now, I would think more of 2030.
