ROBG 408

EF - ROAD (ROBG-408)

Targeted efforts for improving road infrastructure in the cross border area

What’s the goal?

To develop the road infrastructure in the cross-border area through improving the access between the secondary and tertiary nodes and TEN-T network in the region.

What’s the budget?

7,997,947.62 euro, out of which 6,798,255.46 euro ERDF

Who is doing it?

Lead Beneficiary (LB): Dolj County, represented by Dolj County Council (Romania)

Beneficiary 2 (B2): Road Infrastructure Agency (Bulgaria)

When is it happening?

Start date: 25.04.2018

End date: 31.12.2023

Duration: 68 months and 7 days

Where is it happening?

Dolj in Romania

Pleven in Bulgaria

How is it going to happen?

The project envisages modernization of two roads – Road 652A, DN 6 Carcea – DN 65 from km 0+000 to km 6+200, Dolj county, and Road III118 Gulianci - Dolna Mitropolia from km 14+786 to km 24+150, Pleven district on a total length of 15.564 km.

The project is developing 5 (five) joint measures, linked to the Programme output indicator:

1. Promote educational activities in the field of traffic safety in kindergartens and schools by providing materials for role-play scenarios, situations that children might encounter on the road;

2. Adult awareness campaign for speed management and human tolerance on the road – brochures, reflective materials, gadgets, etc.;

2. Adult awareness campaigns for speed management and human tolerance - road brochures, reflective materials, gadgets, etc.;

3. Speed indicator panels for drivers will be installed on the road, in this case specifically solar radar speed indicators. These are traffic calming devices, designed for those who drive at very high speeds, thus alerting them to their speed;

4. It is intended to use the resonator marking, sound warning for the marking lines of the road. They will improve rear-view visibility and reflectivity in wet conditions by creating a "relief" that will improve road safety, while offering the added benefit of a warning noise when overtaken;

5. A common approach for both roads regarding the installation of parapets with reflective devices closer together to be more visible at night.

What will be the results (what’s the contribution to the Programme)?

Programme outputs:5 joint mechanisms to facilitate the connection of secondary/tertiary nodes to TEN-T infrastructure (e.g. route guidance, incidents/emergencies detection and management, studies on traffic flows, feasibility studies addressing cross-border; 15.56 km of Total length of reconstructed or upgraded roads;

Programme results: 13,274.00 people of Cross border population served by modernized infrastructure leading to TEN-T.
