Romania begins repair of broad gauge railroad to Reni port

Romania began repairing a broad gauge railroad of 1520 mm, which reaches the port and industrial city of Galati on the banks of the Danube from the Ukrainian port of Reni through Giurgiulesti (Moldova).

This is reported by ProAgro Group with reference to Passenger Transport.

According to the minister, Romanian authorities are holding a tender until May 19 to repair the broad gauge railway line Giurgiulesti – Galati. According to the Romanian Ministry of Transport, repair of this segment should take 60 days after signing the contract. The Romanian authorities estimate the cost of the work at 1.28 million lei. The money will be allocated from the infrastructure budget of the Romanian Railways.

“This railway line will allow the transportation of goods to and from Ukraine through Moldova and the port of Galati. This Danube port will become on a par with the port in Constanta, one of the key points of transportation of raw materials and goods in the region”, – stressed the minister.
