According to those from the Pro Infrastructure Association (API), who visited the construction site of the ring road that connects DN5 Bucharest – Giurgiu to the border crossing point and the Friendship Bridge, the chances of completing this investment in advance are small, but there are. The mobilization of the Austrian builder PORR is very good, but the site encountered obstacles, such as the landfill on the route that did not exist in the initial plans.

One year after the start of the works, on October 21, 2020, the construction stage reached 70%, but the continuation of the works at a sustained pace depends largely on the weather conditions.

“The general contractor, PORR, and CNAIR officials make efforts to open the traffic until the end of the year, before the contractual term (April 2022), but we are very reserved, given the unfavorable weather and the volume of work remaining to be executed. The road also has a novelty: the rigid road system made of concrete, poured with special finishes that can be seen in the filming, it can be ready in about 30 days, with an execution speed of about 350 linear meters per day, on average. The finishes, the connections with the structures, the landfill area and the road safety elements could be finished only in the last days of the year, with great efforts and good weather, ”API wrote on Facebook page.

Completion of the ring road from Giurgiu to the Friendship Bridge: Special technology

In August, the builder announced that a landfill was discovered on the route of the future artery that no one knew about. A solution is still being sought to overcome this impasse, after the excavation works have been extended, without results.

“Initially, the solution was to extra-excavate a meter and a half. At another half a meter of extra excavation is still garbage. The location is, from what I found out, on a former landfill that no one knew about ”complained the foreman from PORR.

The connection road between DN 5 (Oinacu area) and Giurgiu Ruse Customs will solve the traffic problems on the route to the main customs between Romania and Bulgaria. The construction uses a new technology, which involves replacing the asphalt with a special concrete. Its pouring will be done in the last phase of the construction of the taxiway. Concrete is considered superior for heavy traffic, being more resistant and non-deformable.
