Description

A stretch of the Timișoara to Lugoj section of Romania’s A1 motorway and a motorway bypass around the city of Timișoara have been built with European Union financial support. The roads are located in Timiș County, within the West development region, part of the country’s Macroregion four. The Timișoara to Lugoj section of motorway is a component of the Trans-European Transport Network, while the bypass around Timișoara is connected to it. By furthering the development of the network, the project will contribute to improving mobility in western Romania and making road transport faster and safer.
