So they really started the M5? That's great! I thought they would never build it in the near future, but looks like i was wrong.

Me too. But it's U/C now and they say It'll be done by 2015. I think they'll do it since everything is on track and on budget, the funding is assured. Nothing can go wrong.

Drumul Taberei – Eroilor metro line proposed for completion in Q1 2015
NOVEMBER 6TH, 2011 AT 9:00 PM

The minister of Transport, Anca Boagiu said Friday, while inspecting the works on the Razoare construction site, that she wants the metropolitan line between Drumul Taberei and Eroilor to be ready in the first quarter of 2015, even earlier if possible. Moreover, the minister expects the feasibility study for the Bragadiru-Voluntari subway line to be completed next year, Realitatea.net reports. “By the middle of 2012, all metro stations will have elevators, as part of this programme worth EUR 27.3 M. We already installed elevators in 12 stations and will install 11 more in 11 stations,” the Transport minister added. According to Anca Boagiu, elevators will be installed in all the remaining 25 stations by the middle of next year.

Work started on new Bucharest subway line - M5

Construction work worth 245 million Euros for a new subway line were started today (Fri), in Bucharest.

The new metro line will link Drumul Taberei to Pantelimon and it is estimated to be complete by 2015.

Transport Minister Anca Boagiu said two new lines would be built, to link Eroilor to Pantelimon, and Bragadiru to Voluntari.

The work on the new metro line Drumul Taberei to Pantelimon will influence traffic in the Razoare area in Bucharest, which will be restricted until 2015.

Bucharest’s entire subway network will have elevators for people with disabilities by mid-2012, Transport Minister Anca Boagiu also announced today.

Only 12 stations currently have elevators. Bucharest's underground network has 49 stations.

Bucharest metro operator buys EUR 97 mln worth of trains from Spanish CAF
NOVEMBER 29, 2011 AT 2:43 PM




The Bucharest metro network operator Metrorex has recently signed a contract to buy 16 trains from Spanish company Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) for around EUR 97 million. This contract will be financed by the European Investment Bank (EIB) as part of the financing contract for the planned Drumul Taberei – Universitate metro line.

The new trains will be assembled in Romania and will allow passengers to take bicycles on the metro.

The first CAF train supplied under this contract will start running on the existing metro lines in Bucharest sometime in the next year to year and a half. Metrorex plans to buy eight more trains so that the Bucharest metro can run a single type of train on the line.

The EIB loan, worth some EUR 460 million, will be signed next year.

Yes, the loan agreement with Japan was signed by President Basescu last year on the occasion of a visit to Japan. Bucharest will see heavy infrastructure works in the years to come: besides 2 (or even 3 metro mainlines U/C), an urban motorway will also become U/C next year.

Consulting contract worth EUR 66 M for expanding the metro line to Otopeni signed

DECEMBER 15TH, 2011 AT 9:00 PM
Metrorex, the operator of the Bucharest metro network, signed with the consortium of Padeco (Japan)/Oriental Consultants (Japan)/Metroul SA Romania/Seneca Group International/Systra (France) a contract worth EUR 66.6 M for consultancy in view of building a new metro line to service the Otopeni Airport, which will become operational in 2017-2018, Mediafax informs. “The construction will probably begin in 2013 and will spread on maximum 7 years,” general manager of Metrorex, Gheorghe Udriste announced. In a first phase, the consultant will revise for two months the feasibility study made in 2008, rethinking the route and the number of stations, in order to make the project cost efficient. The new line will be 14 km long and, depending on the results of the feasibility study, will have between 10 and 14 stations, serviced by 10 trains. The connection with the Otopeni Airport will be the sixth metro main line and will come at an estimated cost of EUR 800 M, VAT exclusive. The investment will be financed with a credit of EUR 320 M provided by Japan, via the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), plus money from the state budget and other financing sources that will be identified in the future. A check-in area will be arranged in the Gara de Nord 2 metro station for the passengers of the two airports, Baneasa and Otopeni.

New project for Bucharest's M5 - wine cellars in the stations

Quote:
Centuries old wine cellar found while digging for new metro line in Bucharest
March 13, 2012 11:00 am




Workers at the future metro line connecting downtown Bucharest to the Drumul Taberei neighborhood discovered a lost wine cellar, which the most conservative estimates put at over a hundred years old, in the Razoare area of Bucharest. The wine cellar, which, according to the first archeological research, could date back to the time of ruler Tudor Vladimirescu (1780-1821), was found in the area where the Academia Militara metro station is planned. Work on the metro line has already been halted, while researchers hunt for more archaeological evidence.

The metro line project will most likely be rerouted due to the discovery. Authorities are thinking of including the wine cellar in the project, so that travelers can see the cellar walls while waiting for the metro. Similar cellars were previously discovered in the area. The owner of the land turned the cellars into a restaurant.

The metro operator Metrorex has just changed the projected the metro line from Universitate area, after similar archeological discoveries.

Work on the Universitate – Drumul Taberei metro line started in November last year and should be finished in 2015, after investments of over EUR 215 million.

Actually, not a bad idea at all!

The access to the wine cellars will probably be blocked by glass walls.

Romanian firm provides electrical system for Athens metro expansion
April 4, 2012 4:05 pm

Romanian company Emon Electric, based in Campina, recently finalized work on the electric traction system for the expansion of a metro line in Greek capital Athens, under a EUR 3.2 million contract.

The local company, which is owned by the Solomon family, started to work on the contract in 2008, when it signed an agreement with Terna Energy, the company which is building the metro line.

Emon Electric has also worked at Petrom’s gas-fired electrical station Petrom Brazi, as well as on the Tariverde transformer station.
