The modernization works of DJ 102 I Valea Doftanei (Prahova county) – Brădet (Braşov county), a road that would decongest traffic on DN 1 until the completion of the highway, could start in September, but their start is conditional on the fulfillment of obligations which fall to the final beneficiaries, respectively the Braşov and Prahova county councils, regarding the expropriation of the lands affected by the investment, according to a press release issued by the Braşov County Council (CJ).
It is one of the conclusions of the discussions that took place on Tuesday, at the CNI headquarters, during which the status of the implementation of the contract was analyzed.
“Currently, work is being done on the technical project of execution, so that, according to the management of the CNI, the Order to Start the Execution of the Works can be issued during September 2023. The start of the works is conditioned by the fulfillment of the obligations of the final beneficiaries, respectively the councils Brasov and Prahova counties, regarding the expropriation of the lands affected by the investment. In this context, it was agreed on the need to complete the expropriation corridor at the level of the technical project, so that the documents completely correspond to the reality on the ground, and then proceed to the realization of the expropriations for the purpose of public utility of the lands necessary for the construction of the inter-county road”. it is stated in the press release of the CJ Braşov, according to Agerpres.
At the same time, according to the cited source, the Brasov officials proposed that the design services for technological bridges and bypass routes, which were initially the responsibility of the two county administrations, be contracted and implemented by the CNI, with the financing remaining the responsibility of the Brasov and Prahova county councils, and this the idea was approved at the level of the CNI management.
Also, the responsibilities of the parties regarding the relocation of utility networks were discussed, in case this will be necessary during the implementation of the project, the cited source mentioned.
“The rehabilitation and modernization of DJ 102 I represents an objective of strategic importance for the counties of Brasov and Prahova, a project that I initiated three years ago, together with the Minister of Transport at the time, Lucian Bode, with his colleague Mihail Veștea and the representatives the county and local authorities in Prahova. We all agreed that an alternative solution is needed to decongest the traffic on National Road 1, until the construction of the Comarnic – Braşov highway, and this road section proved to be the most suitable.
It is essential that the central authorities, namely the Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration and CNI SA have given us all their support on the implementation side, considering that we are talking about a works contract that exceeds 405.4 million lei”, he emphasized , in the quoted statement, the president of the Braşov County Council, Adrian-Ioan Veştea.
The financing of the project is ensured by the Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration, through the National Program for constructions of public or social interest carried out by CNI SA, and the counties of Prahova and Braşov are responsible for financing from their own revenues the works ineligible under the program.
According to the quoted source, the list of investments of the Braşov County Council this year includes the expropriation of buildings located on the site of the road, for which the amount of 6,315,320 lei was provided, as well as a financing of 1,095,550 lei intended for the start of ineligible works.
The road to be designed, rehabilitated and modernized runs between km 37+620 and km 63+256.08, for a total length of 25.63 km and is divided into two sections, one in each of Brasov and Prahova counties .
