  • Balti Trolleybus Company

    Stronger connectivity
    1.600.000 Euro
    Austrian Development Agency
    2012 - 2012
    Finalised
    With a population of approximately 150,000 inhabitants, Balti is the second largest city in the Republic of Moldova. Since the 1970s, the City was equipped with a fleet of trolleybuses which, by 2012 were in bad condition. Two thirds of the trolleybuses had been in use for over 20 years and required extensive maintenance efforts and resources in order to continue running. Around 1 in 7 trips (i.e. 15%) were cancelled due to the lack of suitable maintenance equipment, whilst functioning trolleybuses were regularly overloaded. The EU and EBRD joined efforts to renew the fleet of trolleybuses in Balti. Between March 2014 and June 2015, the EU provided 1.6 million Euros of support through a grant for this project, whilst EBRD provided a 3 million Euro loan.  The Project was successfully implemented.
  • Chisinau Public Transport project

    The aim of the project is to improve public transport services and ensure the sustainability of an energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly transport system by upgrading Chisinau's trolleybus fleet. The backbone of Chisinau's public transport system is the trolleybus service, which ensures the mobility of citizens along all major corridors in the city. Due to insufficient financing, the average age of the fleet is now 17 years and service levels are declining. This operation will have a significant environmental and social impact on the capital of Moldova.

    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.
