renovating Moldavian national road M2

11.06.2012 | STRABAG Moldova

€ 35 million contract for the rehabilitation of 48 km between Ghindesti and Drochia
operating in Moldova since the beginning of 2012

Chisinau/Vienna, 11 June 2012 Austrian STRABAG SE, Central and Eastern Europe’s largest construction company, has been awarded the contract to renew a 48 km section of National Road M2 between Ghindesti and Drochia by the Republic of Moldova and the Millennium Challenge Account (MCA) Moldova.

The project, worth USD 43.2 million (~ € 35 million), includes the rehabilitation of the roadway as well as the improvement of junctions within a construction period of 24 months. STRABAG will also provide all street lights and will rearrange bus stops and pedestrian bridges.

“The new order is a good sign that we have gained a foothold in Moldova. This will allow us to use synergies through our presence in Romania,” comments Hans Peter Haselsteiner, CEO of SE. reported of the market entry in Moldova at the beginning of 2012. In Moldova, the company is active in the fields of transportation infrastructures and environmental technology.
More information is available at www.strabag.com

There is also a 110 km/h limit for expressways, and none for motorways, as they just doesn't exist in reality there (just in laws).

Moldovan road system, with shields in both Romanian and Russian style, as they use them:

For similar Romanian shields, you can see http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=5933



Translation was done with Google Trans., hope it is not too bad.

For metallic signs, they use Russian-style boxes or no identificator at all, while in kilometre markers they use Romanian-style shields (sometimes in color and sometimes in black and white).

The first steps for a motorway linking Chisinau to Romania, to be financed from EU funds:

Romania, R. of Moldova – joint group for EU funds-related investments
DECEMBER 16TH, 2013 AT 9:00 PM


Romanian Minister of Transports Ramona Manescu and her Moldovan counterpart Vasile Botnari decided in Chisinau to speed up the two countries’ bilateral cooperation in order to increase the EU funds absorption rate in the field of transport infrastructure. The two ministers also agreed to set up expert groups on all types of transports to identify priority investment projects. The projects will be subsequently promoted in order to get EU funds, according to a release of the Ministry of Transports and Road Infrastructure in Chisinau.

EU will finance the construction of a new road bridge over the Prut river, to ensure connections between Chisinau and Iasi:

The European Commission to support financing for the construction of a bridge over the Prut river
December 17, 2013

The European Commission will support finance costs for the construction of the road bridge to interconnect Ungheni to the trans-European transport network, said Prime Minister Chisinau Leanca, during a meeting with the Minister of Transport of Romania, Ramona Mănescu.

Leancă said he was informed of this by a letter signed by European Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for Transport, said in a statement the government in Chisinau.

Makes sense.

I also forgot that Moldova is the poorest country in Europe (either that or Greece).

I reckon that the most they can afford is a maximum toll of 1 Euro (or 20 bucks in Moldovan Leu currency)

GDP pro capita
Greece $21,617
Moldova $4,182
There are many other (Eastern) European countries in between.
Greece was badly affected by the 2008-present crisis but before it was not so bad, poorer than West European countries but richer than East European countries. The difference between Greece and East European countries is that the first experienced a major economical shrink in a couple of years (and this make big news), while the latters had always been poor (but are improving in the last 20 years).

If you see Molovan pics it looks like that the car fleet is better than what you may expect in such a country. It's probably because only the middle-uper class minority can afford cars, while the majority of the population can't.

Most Eastern European countries have similar or even bigger GDP per capita as Greece. There are some non-EU exceptions (Belarus, Ukraine come to mind).

All 2004 EU members in eastern Europe have a GDP per capita in the $ 21,000 - 30,000 range, which is similar to Greece or Portugal. Romania and Bulgaria are lagging in that aspect though. I know it's a pretty popular opinion to divide Europe in a wealthy west and a poor east, but the per capita GDP in the Czech Republic is twice that of Bulgaria and even exceeds that of Italy.

I continue in the roadside rest area, because it doesn't belong here at all.
