2016-21 - Moldova, M3 Chisinau-Giurgiulesti motorway (Cimislia)
Road project. Road construction. The project is located on M3 national, an important connection with Romania and Ukraine. The Moldovan M3 road provides the most important and shortest link between Chisinau and Giurgiulesti and provides access to the Danube and Black Sea. In addition, the M3 corridor is an integral part of the European Road E584 Poltava-Kirovograd-Chisinau-Giurgiulesti-Galati-Slobozia. It provides a link between PanEuropean corridors IV and IX. Currently, the corridor has, in parts, a high level of deterioration and reduced bearing capacity, resulting in axle load restrictions, the diversion of freight traffic, high transportation costs and subsequently reduced local business opportunities and transit traffic.
