Basic  project  data 

Project ID: PA1A056

Need  and  added  value  for  the  Danube  Region  Strategy

The development of railways in the river–maritime area of Constanta Port increased the accessibility of the port, decreased travel time for cargo and sustained the development of efficient multimodal terminals.


The project aimed at building a complex railways system (railroad yard) in the river-maritime sector to supply optimal and uniform services for current and future port operators.                                                              

Conducted  project  activities

The railroad yard station has 3 tracks for the reception of trains from the Romanian railways network, 12 tracks for the handling of carriages, their separation for the port operators and 2 tracks for the review and repair of the carriages.
