Chisinau-Ungheni-Sculeni-Romanian border connects the Capital of Moldova, Chisinau with the localities of Straseni, Calarasi, Ungheni (administrative centres for regions) and the Moldova / Romanian border station at Sculeni. The work contract No. RSPSP/W4/03 comprised the new construction of the Ungheni bypass including an interchange at its eastern end to connect with the existing R1 road. The length of this section is about 8.30 km of a 2-lane, single carriageway road and about 0.6 km of slip roads for the new interchange. Shortly behind the beginning of the Ungheni bypass a new T-Junction was built to provide access to and from Ungheni via the existing R1 road.


The Ungheni Bypass has been put into operation in 2018. The works included construction of new embankments including placement of geotextile membrane, the construction of new road pavement, construction of culverts, construction of drainage facilities, and construction of a new overpass over the railway line Chisinau – Ungheni, relocation of a section of existing R1 parallel to the railway line and relocation of utility lines. 

The new bridge with two equal spans is 76.7 m long and 13 m wide. The bridge was built using cast-in-situ bored piles for abutments and-precast pre-stressed concrete T-beams for superstructure.
