The deadline assumed unforced by entrepreneurs, consultants and beneficiaries for the commissioning of the Drumul Taberei metro with passengers - namely 30 June, 2020 - cannot be met, the specialists being the ones who will decide when the M5 metro line will be put into operation, said on Monday Minister of Transport Lucian Bode.
After a trip by a Bombardier metro train between the Raul Doamnei - Eroilor 2 stations, the transport minister appreciated the works on the M5 metro line as spectacular, both from an architectural and technological point of view, but he did not advance any deadline for the commissioning of the M5 line with passengers and he said that it would be established by specialists.
At the same time, Bode recalled that this project was deprived of financial support in the period 2013-2015, given that, for example, in 2013 it was allocated only about 20 million euros, although the works cost almost 700 million euros.
The Raul Doamnei - Eroilor section, including the Valea Ialomitei station and depot, is financed entirely from non-reimbursable foreign funds within SOP-T 2007 - 2013, POIM 2014 - 2020 (85%) and from the state budget (15%). The value of the project approved by Government's Decision no. 374/2019 is almost 3.224 billion lei.
