The feasibility study for a new bridge connecting Giurgiu (Romania) and Ruse (Bulgaria) has been approved, European Commissioner for Transport Adina Valean told Agerpres in Brussels on Wednesday. In December 2023, the project was submitted by Romania under military mobility funds and was presented as a road bridge with the possibility to also have a railway section.

Valean noted that, according to the latest European infrastructure maps, the bridge must be road-rail.

"Besides, the Commission has invested hundreds of millions in the restoration of the Bucharest-Giurgiu railway. It is absolutely natural for this corridor to continue to the south, especially in the context of the new connectivity possibilities coming to the Aegean Sea from Greece, Bulgaria, so on the Corridor North-South, on which Romania is now. A new corridor that we have brought to Romania, the North-South Corridor - from the Baltic Sea, to the Aegean Sea, connecting to the Black Sea. So it is very important that this bridge be up to standards and the Commission is perfectly willing to invest in it," Valean told Agerpres.

The EU transport commissioner appreciates that Romania and Bulgaria will submit a joint project on the Fast Danube 2 programme by end-January.
