There were 8 partially completed existing bridges in the Bucharest-Fundulea section of the Bucharest to Constanta Motorway Project. Construction of these bridges was abandoned when the previous construction contract for this section was terminated in the mid-nineties. The European Union financed the Government of Romania for taking the abandoned project to completion. The work included completion of the existing bridge structures as part of the total works outlined in the Contract.
These bridges in the scope of work featured different configurations including pre-tensioned, post-tensioned and steel girders with concrete pre-cast slabs and cast-in-situ, reinforced and pre-stressed. All bridge substructures were done in concrete. Bridge bearings were either elastomeric or steel type.
