The works on construction of the bypass road of the southern Comrat city – a new highway, which includes six bridges, will be soon finished. This means that the transport of goods will no longer cross the city and the vehicles will be able to move with a higher speed on the road to south Moldova. In August, the last works of putting the road marking took place on those 18.3 km of road, which represents the belt road of the Comrat city, the government’s communication and protocol department has reported.
“This is the final phase. Metal parapets were set, the street illumination would be connected in intersections,” said an adviser at the State Administration of Roads, Victor Ungureanu, who came to visit the construction site.
The construction started in 2019 and had a value of 29.4 million euros – money borrowed by the government from the European Investment Bank. The works are carried out by the Turkish company Onur Construction.
The road has five circle junctions, five bridges and a railway crossing.
“We build roads according to European standards, so these are the highest-quality standards. The guarantee we give is of two years, but we expect that no repair or maintenance works will be needed here at least ten years,” a project manager at the Onur Construction Company, Bulent Tatar, said.
For the Comrat city, the bypass road means more silence and a considerable reduction of the road traffic. So far, trucks have been moving on the Comrat roads, close to houses, triggering the degradation of the roadway and dwellings.
The belt road of the Comrat city is part of a big project on rehabilitation of the M3 road, which leads to Giurgiulesti. The road will make the movement to southern Moldova quicker and safer.
“Our goal is that all roads’ infrastructure projects are carried out on term and at a higher level of quality,” Deputy Prime Minister, Infrastructure and Regional Development Ministry Andrei Spinu said.
The ministry presently works on a plan on rehabilitation of national and regional roads for the next seven years, which it will approve in autumn.
“We want all national roads to be in a quite good state. We understand that the country’s budget is not enough for these works and we will attract financial resources from the development partners,” Andrei Spinu added. (Moldpres/Business World Magazine)
