Recently entered in the Egis portfolio of projects, the bridge over Danube at Brăila was officially opened in the presence of national and local Romanian authorities.
On 6th of July, Brăila Bridge was officially opened after a 5-year design & build period. With an impressive length of 1,974 meters, the Brăila Bridge is the largest bridge in Romania and third-largest suspended bridge in Europe. As a major achievement in the development of the Romanian road infrastructure, Brăila Bridge is also an impressive monumental construction and stands as one of the country’s most ambitious projects of the last decades.
Brăila Bridge is an important crossing point of the Danube and connects the city of Brăila, in the eastern part of Romania, with the region of Tulcea, on the opposite bank of the old river. Promoted by the National Company for Administration of Road Infrastructure as the client, the construction was done through a design & build contract conducted by an Italian – Japanese Association comprising Webuild (former Astaldi) and IHI Infrastructure Systems.
Italrom Inginerie Internationala, recently acquired by Egis, contributed to the supervision of the design & build of the bridge under an association led by Metroul along with Sistema and Arex forming a team of Romanian and Italian engineers. The supervision services will continue during a 10-year maintenance period commencing after the acceptance of the works.
