Background info

The two sections composing Metro Line 5  are expected to be finalized in 2016 and 2018. Works on the first section started in 2011, when Spanish company FCC Construcción has been awarded a EUR 267 million design and construction  contract.  The company entered its bid in consortium with Italian company Astaldi and two Romanian companies, AB Construct and ACM Delta.

The contract, awarded by Romania’s national metro company Metrorex, includes civil engineering work to build the 6.1 kilometres of line. Nine stations will be built along this section of line, and the project also involves work on the surface to restore the roads affected by the construction project. Work is scheduled to begin in the second half of this year and will take at most 25 months.

The route includes two parallel 5.7 metre diameter tunnels measuring 4.85 km. each, and a third tunnel measuring 260 metres linking lines 1 and 5 at Eroilor station. A total of 240,000 m3 of earth and rock will need to be excavated. The nine stations will be located between 15 and 20 metres below ground level.

Other bidders included a Turkish-Russian-Italian consortium (Dogus, Gulermak, Moskovsky Metrostroy and Salini) and an Austrian-Romanian group (Strabag and Straco Grup).
