The Moara Vlasiei - Ploiesti highway affair: http://www.zf.ro/companii/transportu...oiesti-8283885

Indeed, the minister of transport Boagiu said in April that the contract "is cancelled" due to many irregularities. I heard her on TV.
Now she comes with another declaration saying that "the contract WOULD have been cancelled if they would not comply to some conditions" blah, blah...

It is not the first time when the ministers come with contradictory declarations within 1 month.

The Romanian Transportation Ministry confirmed that the warning notice sent to contractors for Bucharest-Ploiesti motorway worked out, and the contractors restarted the works at full speed, as well as dropped their demand for an increase in price. Completion of the 43 km of A3 should be done by end year.

There is no contradiction, it's just the journalists who don't have a clue about motorway contracts.

The contract was never terminated, only a warning was sent as a preliminary for termination. As the conditions in the warning were fulfilled, the ministry will not terminate the contract anymore.

You are right:
some journalist understood "contract cancelled" some others "notification for cancellation was sent"

There was not even a termination notice, but a warning notice. Anyway, Romania has some chances this year to break the 400 km motorway lenght threshold, if this section opens as well as Constanta by-pass. Another 70 km will be added next year on a certain note.

The news in English. They had it right this time:

Quote:
Builders Pledge To Resume Work On S Romania Highway Sector

Romania's Transport Ministry will not terminate the contract with the constructor of the Moara Vlasiei-Ploiesti highway section, as the consortium has withdrawn its request for a 47% price increase, minister Anca Boagiu said Wednesday.

The ministry was planning to terminate the contract as the UMB Spedition-Pa&Co-Euroconstruct Trading '98 consortium asked for the contract value to be increased by 47% and had left the construction site 17 months ago, said Boagiu.

UMB Spedition and then the other companies withdrew their request for more money and committed to completing work on time. The deadline stands as provided by the contract - December 15.

National road authority CNADNR has so far paid the consortium 671 million lei (EUR162.5 million), VAT included. UMB Spedition has built 93% of its segment, Pa&Co - 65%, Euroconstruct - 25%.

The Moara Vlasiei-Ploiesti sector is 42.5 km long. The consortium was awarded the contract in 2006, with an initial price of RON702.58 million, net of VAT. In 2009, the price was increased by 25%, to RON883.7 million, net of VAT. The work is financed from the state budget. (EUR1=RON4.129)

The other remaining section of 13 km up to Bucharest ring is at 55% completion and needs also to be completed this year:












CNADNR

The major problem remains connection with the Bucharest ring, and it'll probably get an improvisation this year until works for a cloverleaf (hopefully) will start next year. In the background are the massive concrete walls separating the Bucharest road ring from the Bucharest rail ring.

Official motorway openings this year, as confirmed by the road company today:

1. Bucuresti-Ploiesti: 60 km

2. Medgidia - Constanta: 35 km (half profile only)

3. Constanta by-pass: 22 km

In total, there will be around 82 km of motorway (leaving aside the half profile).

Based on current expected and probable openings, Romania will brake the 400 km motorways threshold this year, and the 500 km next year on a very certain note, while in 2013-14 Romania should open another 200 km of motorway.

Romania to issue EUR 7 billion bonds for the financing of road construction:

Quote:
Romania To Start Road-show For International MTN Issue June 6

Romania will start on June 6 the road-show presentations for a first international issue of its planned EUR7 billion medium term notes (MTNs) program, market sources told MEDIAFAX Friday.

The Finance Ministry last year selected Austria's Erste Group Bank AG (EBS.RO) and French Societe Generale to handle the financing program.

The ministry said it plans to launch the first bond issue before July, followed by another issue in the second half of the year.

In 2010, Romania announced a three-year MTNs program worth up to EUR7 billion. However, the country didn't attract any funds via the program so far.

Early May, the ministry sold debt worth EUR939 million in three-year foreign currency bonds on the local market, at an average interest of 4.89% a year.

The latest international debt sale took place in March 2010, when the ministry attracted EUR1 billion in a five-year Eurobond, at an annual yield of 5.17%.

Tender for the terminated contract for Medgidia-Cernavoda to be launched next week:

Quote:
Transport Ministry To Launch Auction For Cernavoda-Medgidia Highway Section

The Romanian Transport Ministry will launch an auction next week to award a new contract for the design and construction of the Cernavoda-Medgidia highway section, in southeastern Romania.

The ministry estimates the contract will be signed in August.

Transport Minister Anca Boagiu said Friday the contract will run for 15 months (three months for design and 12 months for construction work).

The minister said the auction winner will have to present six intermediary construction deadlines.

"If they fail to observe deadlines, they will be forced to pay penalties amounting to EUR500,000, plus 0.1% of the total value of the contract per day for the entire period of delay," said Boagiu.

Initially, the construction contract for the Cernavoda-Medgidia highway section had been awarded to French constructor Colas. The Transport Ministry cancelled the contract in April as the constructor asked for extra EUR8 million to carry out works, after the highway's route had been changed.

According to the national roads authority CNADNR, construction work on the Cernavoda-Medgidia highway section will cost between 500 million lei (about EUR121 million) and RON700 million, VAT excluded. (EUR1=RON4.1315

Our transport ministry said during the visit she made on Saturday on the counstruction sites of Arad - Timisoara and Arad bypass motorways that Arad - Timisoara motorway will be opened in December this year (although there will be some minor works to be done after the opening) and that Arad bypass will be opened partialy at the same time (including the bridge over Mures), but the works on the bypass will be completed in May 2012 (in June 2012 we have elections ). Also, on July 22 the two parts of Mures bridge will join in the middle of the span. I got this info from 2 newspaper articles (1,2 - romanian only).

Here are some recent pictures from the construction site:



















And an aerial video of the construction site recorded few days ago:

So, to summarize, this year they plan to complete the following:

1. Bucharest - Moara Vlasiei, part of A3, (13 km at 2x3) -> more than 80% completed currently so feasible

2. Moara Vlasiei-Ploiesti , part of A3, (43 km) -> more than 60% completed - opening questionable (works accelerated though)

3. Constanta by-pass, A4, (22 km) -> don't know exactly but also more than 50% completed - opening questionable (reports the works were accelerated)

4. Timisoara-Arad (32 km), part of A1, -> more than 60% completed - opening questionable (reports the works were accelerated)

In total exactly 110 km TBO this year!



Next year's planned openings:

1. Cernavoda - Medgidia, part of A1, (19 km).

2. Medgidia - Constanta, part of A1, (32 km).

3. Inner Bucharest section of A3 (7 km at 2x3).

4. Arad by-pass, part of A1, (13 km).

In total: 71 km in 2012.

Those who will not open this year, will open for sure in 2012, and the 2012 completion projects are almost certain.

In 2013 and 2014 there should be again at least 100 km openings per year, according to the signed or to be signed agreements.
