CFR SA launches new project using European funds

Romanian rail infrastructure manager CFR SA has launched the tender for the contracting of a feasibility study for repair and modernisation works to Bucharest-Brasov, Timisoara-Arad, Bucharest-Buzau, Bucharest-Craiova, Pascani-Iasi and Bucharest-Pitesti. The contract is worth RON 4.54 million (EUR 960,000) and offers can be submitted by 16 April 2019. These offers have to be valid until 16 August 2019. The contract will not be divided on lots. The feasibility study will be financed using non-reimbursable European funds through the Operational Programme Large Infrastructure 2014-2020. The attribution criterion is the price-performance ratio. Therefore, the financial component will have a share of 40%, while the technical component will have a share of 60%. The project will be carried out to ensure increased speed and improved quality for rail transport services and is included in Romania’s General Transport Master Plan (MPGT). This set of projects and investments refers to both railway infrastructure and railway services and aims to harness the social and economic potential of some developing regions in Romania. The proposed package of projects seeks to increase the attractiveness of railway passenger transport (with immediate favourable effects for freight transport as well) by reducing the travel time and increase safety and comfort. The consultant will have to elaborate the Design Topic and Feasibility Study in order to present a “mature” project, in conformity with the most efficient technical and economic solutions for which to approve the financing source for the implementation of the investment objective, as specified in CFR SA’s requirements.
