Project status

The project was finalized on 07.12.2022.

LB -Giurgiu Municipality finished the works execution according to the Technical design. 6.75 km of roads in Giurgiu town were modernized. Thus, on 22.06.2021, the reception was made at the end of the works for modernization of six road sections and for completion of the restoration works of the passage at the intersection of 1 Decembrie 1918 street with the Giurgiu Nord-Ruse railway, at km c.f. 66 + 533.00.

The specific equipment for the traffic management system was installed both in Giurgiu and in Ruse. The existing system created in the project (MIS ETC 115, financed under the Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Romania-Bulgaria 2007-2013), was expanded by 4 Ultra High Sensitivity 4K cameras. Gathering data from the mounted cameras and processing traffic information from the traffic monitoring system is a critical aspect of modern traffic management and analysis. This process involves the collection of visual data from the cameras placed at strategic locations and the subsequent analysis of this data to extract valuable traffic-related information. The traffic cameras mounted through this project are strategically placed at key locations, such as intersections and main roads. These cameras have different types of lenses and capabilities, including pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) functionality for focusing on specific areas of interest.

B2 - Ruse Municipality finalized the works execution related to modernization of "Lipnik" Blvd. from the roundabout at Boulevard "Tsar Osvoboditel" to the roundabout next to the building of the traffic police.Thus, a total length of 4.61 km of roads in Ruse were modernized. Protocol no. 16 of the findings of the commission was signed on 04.08.2022. As a result, a Permit for using the road was issued on August 5th 2022. All necessary protocols and documentation were submitted to the competent bodies and the construction was registered via Technical passport on August 8th 2022.

The joint strategy for optimizing transport conditions in the cross-border area Romania-Bulgaria 2020 – 2027 was developed by the Municipality of Ruse in Bulgarian, Romanian and English languages. The strategy was posted on the following link:
