Bechtel Lowers Price For Transylvania Hwy, After "Tough" Negotiations

The price of the Brasov-Bors highway section has been reduced from EUR20 million per km to less than half, following negotiations between Romanian authorities and constructor Bechtel, which will resume work this fall, after the state will pay part of its debts, according to ProTV.

The TV station cites sources in the Transport Ministry, who said "tough negotiations" have resulted in Bechtel renouncing some of its demands, in exchange for the payment of a part of the state's debts. The new deal will be signed and approved by the Government.

The Brasov-Bors section's price per kilometer is still very high, ProTV points out - in some areas as much as EUR30 million per km. The TV station compares this to the Deva-Orastie highway, which is being built for EUR7 million per km, and the Arad-Timisoara highway, which costs EUR5.5 million per km.

The Brasov-Bors section is just one part of the Transylvania Highway, which is designed to be 415 km long. Only 52 km have been built so far, seven years since the project began. Work was halted early this year, because of the lack of funds.

Romanian public road authority CNADNR's debts to Bechtel amounted to EUR90.4 million in May, plus 90.3 million lei (EUR21.27 million) in VAT payments.

(EUR1=RON4.2445)

The news has been confirmed today by the Min of Transportation.

Wow! Isn't that price too high? Does this include VAT and expropriаtion costs? As I see on the map the trace of this highway passes through а level country! It's true that there is a big bridge over the Mures river, but it still appears to be too high!
The highest price of a highway section under construction now in Bulgaria is 2,2 million euro/km (St. Zagora - N. Zagora), and the lowest is 1,75 million EUR/km without VAT and expropriаtion costs!

No, it's actualy a very good price. Ussually, prices are higher than that.

I know in Bulgaria some bids are very low, but I also think those prices cannot be found anywhere else in EU, and I frankly cannot explain them.

PS: Timisoara-Arad is not quite flat actually. There were a lot of ground moving works there due to hills.

Another 21-km Sun Highway segment in Romania to be inaugurated this Friday
JULY 28, 2011 AT 5:07 PM

A 21-km section of the Sun Highway (Autostrada Soarelui- A2) to Mangalia, which will bypass the city of Constanta in Romania, will be inaugurated this Friday by the Romanian Prime Minister, Emil Boc, and the Minister of Transport, Anca Boagiu.

The section to be inaugurated includes a bridge over the Danube – Black Sea canal. To reach the entrance to the new section, you have to either go through downtown Medgidia to reach the Dacilor Valley and then Ciocarlia, either go on the usual route to Murfatlar, then on the bridge over the Canal, Ciocarlia, and then on the highway.

Soarelui Highway is expected to be fully completed in 2013, according to the Minister of Transport. So far, 152 km of the 225 km plannced have been finalized.

Not half lane, but half-profile.

half-lane would have been interesting...

There's a 4-lane road near me with 7 foot (2.1m) lanes. It's a squeeze even in fairly small cars (as it's an urban road, it's about stacking space for junctions, not being able to overtake, so it's not a great problem that you cannot overtake a truck). Given motorway lanes are 12 foot (3.6m), half-lane would be motorcycles only.

Unless half-lane means half-the-lanes. In which case, Super-2s have a long history and are good.

Half-profile. One carriageway of a motorway. It's not exactly the same as a super-two in my opinion. In the European motorway construction history, the completion of a motorway in two phases (first one carriageway, then the other) was and still is very common.

I was wondering what half-lane was, rather than half-profile, which I agree isn't Super 2

OK, for once in almost a decade someone puts the foot in the door to Bechtel! I liked the new minister from the beginning but now she is really something! And it's about a Lady, the first Lady at the helm of the ministry, who actually has moved things along and, on top of that, managed to close the never-ending negotiations with the likes of Bechtel or Colas etc. Well done to her!


For the record, part of the agreement with Bechtel is that they finish 64 km of TM from the border with Hungary and 10 km of TM west of Cluj by end next year. Both sections are completed over 60%.

They open 21 km in total, of which actually 14 km are full-profile and 7 km are half-profile.
