Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Corina Crețu
 Subject: Progress made on Sibiu-Piteşti motorway project

Transport is a cornerstone for the achievement of internal market consolidation and European cohesion. As an integral part of this process, Romania is currently seeking to open up trade and economic relations with its neighbours and with other EU Member States and is making use of two core network corridors across the country to achieve this: the Orient/East-Med Corridor and Rhine-Danube Corridor.

The Romanian Government has now submitted to the Commission for approval and funding the projected Sibiu-Piteşti motorway (stage 1), which is part of the TEN-T Rhine-Danube corridor and essential for the completion thereof in Romania, being the only missing link of the Nădlac - Arad - Timişoara - Lugoj - Deva - Sibiu - Pitești - Bucharest - Constanța section of the Rhine - Danube corridor. Once the Sibiu-Piteşti motorway is completed, it will greatly improve traffic flows along this corridor, providing a continuous motorway connection from the EU western border to the Black Sea ports.

Can the Commission say what stage has been reached by the project? Where are the sticking points in the negotiations between the Commission and the Romanian Government and when is it anticipated that this motorway section, which is of great importance for Romania, will be completed?
