The port of Constanta, Romania, has started repairs of 35 railway lines with a total length of 13.4 km, the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure of Romania Sorin Grindeanu wrote on his Facebook.
“Yesterday, orders for the start of work and documents for repair of 35 lines (13.39 km long) were signed; also 75 road devices were allocated,” he wrote.
The works are being carried out at the stations of port zone A, port zone B and Port Mol V.

Earlier GMK Center reported that the Romanian government approved technical and economic indicators for the expansion of the road to four lanes and the construction of a crossing to the northern part of the port of Constanta, investing $39 million in the project.
Freight forwarding agents are looking for new routes for Ukrainian cargo as logistics costs increase in Romania. In addition, congestions in the port of Constanta caused by Ukrainian imports are blocking critical grain exports. Ukrainian freight forwarders say that Romanian container yards are operating at their maximum as much of Ukraine’s trade now flows through Constanta.
GMK Center also reported that Ukraine’s Metinvest Group is looking for a new supply chain and the development of new products, as the county’s sea trade routes are blocked by the Russian army. Some attempts to build logistics through the ports of Baltic sea and Romania have already been made.
