At least 10 years will be required for the construction of a major highway linking Moldova with Ukraine, Romania and major EU countries

At least 10 years will be required for the construction of a major highway linking Moldova with Ukraine, Romania and major EU countries

The project on the construction of a highway that will connect Moldova with the European road infrastructure and will provide access to the European economic corridor, as well as plans and prospects for this project implementation were discussed at the regular meeting of the Economic Press Club on Tuesday. The project “Moldova wants a highway” involves the inclusion of national highways in the road corridor Munich - Vienna - Bucharest - Tirgu Mures - Iasi - Chisinau - Odessa. It was initiated by the Institute for Development and Expertise of Projects (IDEP), and 8 non-governmental organizations are directly involved in the promotion. The civil society represented by these organizations, in particular, proposes that Moldova, Ukraine and Romania build a modern highway that will provide access to European routes. Along with the interconnection of gas and electricity networks, this will give impetus to the development of trade and economic relations in the region and with the EU countries as well. The first discussions on this project began last year. IDEP Director Iurie Calestru believes that it is necessary to conduct a study on the impact of such a project, as well as enlist the support of citizens and local authorities. A study on the impact of the project will allow the development of a framework document that would serve as a solid basis for the preliminary feasibility studies of this project. Discussions with the government, the EU delegation and international financial institutions are also needed on this project; they are planned for 2020. Iurie Calestru noted that external partners, as well as some members of the European Parliament expressed interest in supporting this project. IDEP project infrastructure expert Andrei Cuculescu said that in Moldova, the highway will be a continuation of the highway, which is currently being built in Romania. Experts spoke about the settlements through which the highway in Moldova can pass (E58 or M14), and also reported that the new highway can be connected to Ukraine, both through Causeni and Stefan-Voda districts (access to the Palanca checkpoint) and through Transnistria. Experts noted that a lot of time will be required for the design and resolution of institutional issues related to the new highway, and government initiative is needed. As the president of the Association for the Development of Tourism Viorel Miron noted, it is necessary to assess the environmental impact of such a project, its socio-economic impact, cost, but it is obvious that with the improvement of the quality of road infrastructure, new opportunities are opening up for tourism and other areas of the economy. In general, the design and construction of highway sections in Moldova, Ukraine and Romania can take up to 10 years. According to preliminary estimates, the cost of the feasibility study for this project is 10 million euros for the Ungheni-Chisinau section and 22 million euros for the Chisinau-Odessa section. At the same time, the direct costs of the project are estimated at several billion euros: at least 1 billion euros will cost the construction of the Ungheni-Chisinau section and 1.8 billion euros - Chisinau-Odessa section. // 11.09. 2019 - InfoMarket.
