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: 24.04.2023

Duration: 60 months

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. Facilitation the traffic safety education activities in kindergarten and schools by delivering materials for role-play scenarios that the children might encounter on the road;

2. Awareness adult campaign for speed managing and human tolerance on road – brochures, reflective materials, gadgets, etc.;

3. Driver’s feedback signs will be mounted on the road, in that particular case solar radar speed signs. They are traffic calming devices designed to slow speeders down by alerting them of their speed;

4. Noisy markings for the horizontal edge lines are planned to be used on the road. They will improve the visibility and retro-reflectivity in wet conditions by creating a “stamp” that will improve the road safety while providing the added benefit of a rumble noise when driven over;

5. A common approach on both roads for installing the guardrails reflectors at a smaller distance between them in order to provide much more night time reflectivity.

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.

Project status

The following main achievements were reported so far:

- The contract for the modernization of the Road 652A, DN 6 Carcea – DN 65 from km 0+000 to km 6+200, Dolj County was awarded on 19.12.2018. The works are ongoing;

- The contracts for the supply of educational traffic games for children, the supply of gadgets to improve road safety and the provision of services for the implementation of road safety activities and advertising, were awarded by B2 on 08.08.2019 and 08.13.2019. The contracts will be fulfilled after the completion of the works within the project;

- The Implementation of construction works within project ROBG-408 for upgrading of Road III-118 Gulyantsi - Dolna Mitropolia from km 14+786 to km 24+150, Pleven district, are finalized.

Considering the amounts certified by FLC, the financial progress at project level is 57.42% from the total budget (4,592,322.73 euro of 7,997,947.62 euro).
