Romania’s updated Transport Master Plan: railway sector investments totalling EUR 19bn

The latest version of the Transport Master Plan foresees investments totalling EUR 19 billion until 2030. The projects will focus on rehabilitation of 3.219 km of railway lines and 1.131 km of railways with economic potential, for the electrification of all sectors of the TEN-T core network (425 km), the development of high-speed railway sections (over 1.000 km) and the the acquisition of 90 rolling stock units.

Romanian Transport Minister Ioan Rus presented to the members of the Transport Committees of the Chamber of Deputies and Senate the final draft of the General Transport Master Plan. The document will be approved next week by the government and by March 15 we will present it before the European Commission, after which it will be implemented.
