- 640 m long cable-stayed bridge across the river Someș in Satu Mare
- Contract value: RON 142 million (approx. € 30 million)
- Contract signing in early April in compliance with strict hygiene regulations
The European-based construction company Strabag has been commissioned to build a 640 m cable-stayed bridge across the river Someș in the western Romanian city of Satu Mare. The contract, worth RON 142 million (approx. € 30 million), was signed in early April with representatives of the municipality and of Strabag in compliance with the currently strict hygiene regulations. Construction is scheduled to start in May 2020.
“Despite the restrictions on public life currently in place in many of our European countries of operation, it is important not to lose sight of the long-term perspective and to continue to pursue important infrastructure projects such as this in Romania,” emphasises Thomas Birtel, CEO of Strabag SE.
Connecting the north and south of the city
With the construction of the bridge, Satu Mare is pursuing the goal of better linking the north and the south of the city and of relieving the volume of traffic on the existing Decebal Bridge. The contract also includes two viaducts and the two adjacent roundabouts. Existing utility lines such as gas, telecommunications, water and sewage must be taken into account or partly relaid during the construction.
