Contract awarded for Lot 4 of the Cluj-Napoca to Episcopia Bihor railway in Romania

A contract has been awarded to build Lot 4 of the Cluj-Napoca to Episcopia Bihor railway in Romania. Webuild, an Italian contractor, and its consortium partners Pizzarotti and Salcef have won the €490 million (£425 million) contract.

It is estimated that around one thousand people will be hired for the implementation of the act. This is both directly and through third parties, with a significant induction on the entire supply chain of the territory. Lot 4 (Aleşd-Hungarian border section) calls for the design and execution of modernization. This is as well as electrification works on approximately 50 kilometers of the existing railway line. It will also include 5 stations in the country’s northwestern corner, near the border with Hungary.

Construction of the Lot 4 railway project in Romania

The Lot 4 project, commissioned by the national railway company, will be funded by the European Union. The funding is through the PNRR locale as part of a larger project to modernize and electrify the 166-kilometer-long Cluj-Napoca-Oradea-Episcopia Bihor line.

The planned interventions will ensure the technical conditions for trains. Passenger trains will move at speeds of 160 km/h and freight trains at 120 km/h. This will increase the level of comfort and safety and make rail traffic more competitive in comparison to road transport. Furthermore, it will result in reduced travel and freight times between the connected cities, as well as lower CO2 emissions.

The Webuild Group is currently involved in the construction of over 120 kilometers of railways and subways, as well as more than 90 kilometers of roads and highways in Romania. Among the iconic projects nearing completion is the bridge of Braila, the second longest suspension bridge in Continental Europe, with a total length of 1,975 meters and a central span of 1,120 meters.
