PM Tariceanu anticipates annual building of 200 km of motorway, in the years to come

PM Calin Popescu-Tariceanu said on September 22, on public television station, that in the coming period, Romania could have 200 km of motorways built annually.
He admitted Romania can have more than five km of motorways built annually, but he added that a programme of motorway building has been implemented in no European country during the term in office of one government only.
Tariceanu accused again President Traian Basescu, who said, in the period when he was Transport minister, that motorways are no priority for Romania. Tariceanu accused also the Social Democratic Party (PSD) (2001-2004, e.n.) that it did very little, so the Tariceanu government had, in 2005, to start working from 0.
The prime minister said that from the moment of the launch of a political decision regarding the building of a new motorway, up to the start of the works proper, a period of three years has to elapse, normally, for pre-feasibility, feasibility studies, for design works, for holding tenders, procedures which have to be observed, notably when European money is at stake.
Tariceanu said that until the year’s end, commissioned will be a few km of the Transylvania Motorway, between Brasov, center of Romania, and Oradea, west, “where the pace of works is good enough.” Works on the motorway on pan-European corridor 4 started after tenders have been held recently, Tariceanu also said.
He reiterated that in a country with an economic growth standing at 9-10%, the construction of infrastructure cannot be in step with the economic development. Taking into account the explosive manner in which the car fleet in Romania goes up, growth in this respect reached even 70%, while forecasts put it at 10-20% annually, and the average in the EU stands at 1-3%, said the prime minister.
Tariceanu, who is head of the National Liberal Party (PNL, at rule), also said that in the electoral programme of this party, infrastructure is a first priority, 6% of a GDP estimated 140 billion euros for 2009, or eight billion euros, will be allocated annually to the sector, in a future Liberal term in office, he said.
