According to the official quoted by Le Clerk:

But no, not HST project here, not even 200-220 km/h. The railway is already double & electrified. The purpose of the current rehabilitation is to increase the speed from 120 km/h today to 160 km/h (although the tracks will allow 200 km/h on some sections) and of course, to increase the safety. The railway is designed for both passengers & freight transport.
Thanks.

Romania speed record, 200 km/h

203 km/h reached by a class 42 loco in the 70s and last year, and the same speed by a Softronic Phoenix this year. THey were all done on the Făurei test track.

I NUOVI TRENI ARENAWAYS SONO AD ARQUATA

Per l’annuncio ufficiale della partenza del servizio
è solo questione di giorni

Alessandria, 24/09/10 – L’avvio del servizio Arenaways è ormai imminente. I nuovi
treni sono regolarmente arrivati a destinazione e attualmente sono nei depositi di
Arquata (AL) per le ultime messe a punto.

A partire dalla prossima settimana dunque, si potranno finalmente vedere i tanto attesi
treni Arenaways percorrere la tratta Torino-Milano. Saranno viaggi cosiddetti “di prova”,
ovvero senza passeggeri, che la compagnia effettuerà per verificare e sistemare quelle
piccole imperfezioni che potrebbero presentarsi in un’operazione così complessa come il
lancio di un nuovo servizio ferroviario.

Con il gestore della rete ferroviaria, RFI, si è ormai giunti alla definizione delle tracce
orarie, ragion per cui anche l’annuncio ufficiale di quando e come si potrà salire sui
treni Arenaways è ormai prossimo.

L’Amministratore Delegato Giuseppe Arena ha dichiarato «La grandissima attesa
esistente e le numerosissime richieste di aggiornamenti che ci sono pervenute in queste
settimane sono state un ulteriore stimolo per accelerare ogni operazione. Abbiamo fatto e
continuiamo a fare quasi l’impossibile per trasformare in realtà il nostro sogno, quello di un
servizio di trasporto pubblico su rotaia che non abbia eguali né in Italia né in Europa. Si è
trattato di un percorso lungo, tortuoso, complicato, con insidie dietro ogni angolo: essere
finalmente arrivati a un passo dall’inaugurazione è un’emozione che difficilmente riesco a
trattenere».

A tal proposito si ricorda che la particolarità della compagnia alessandrina va al di là
dell’essere il primo concorrente di Trenitalia ad entrare sul mercato. I treni
Arenaways, infatti, non sono ascrivibili a nessuna delle categorie usuali poiché sono stati
progettati secondo criteri assolutamente innovativi, al punto da risultare unici in Europa.
Per l’assemblaggio delle componenti dei vagoni, realizzate per lo più da aziende italiane,
Arenaways si è rivolta ad una società che ha sede in Romania, l’unica che è stata in grado
di rispondere pienamente all’elevato livello di personalizzazione richiesta.

Private real estate developer to build railway terminal in Ploiesti with EUR 7 mln
Business News | romania-insider.com | October 20, 2010 at 1:38 pm



Real estate developer Alinso Group will build an inter-modal railway terminal in Ploiesti, connecting the Eastern and Western areas of Romania, a private investment of EUR 7 million. The terminal, called Euro Gate Terminal Ploiesti, will be ready in 2011. It will be built on 10 hectares of land and it will include three railway lines with a total length of 2,200 meters.

“Euro Gate Terminal will stimulate the economic development of the Prahova region as well as the increase in the national economic competitiveness, which currently deals with the lack of adequate infrastructure,” said Ivan Lokere, CEO Alinso Group (in picture).

Alinso Group is the developer of Ploiesti West Park warehouse project, with a total value of buildings and infrastructure in the project reaching EUR 750 million.
