|2013-18 - Moldova, Roads project III|
|Road project. Upgrade. This Project is part of a more comprehensive rehabilitation programme including also Projects "Moldova Roads II" and "Moldova European Roads". The project consists in rehabilitating and upgrading several sections, as well as constructing city bypasses or missing links on main road corridors. |
The main parameters consist in construction of two lane roads, enlargements, strengthening the pavement and enhancing traffic safety. Initially three road sections have been selected: one adjacent to Chisinau, the capital city, and two on the M3 North-South axis linking Chisinau to the Port of Giurgiulesti. Three components have been identified as a first phase. Further investments will be selected at a later stage from the Government's Transport and Logistics Strategy 2013-2022, as results of the studies become available.
