Construction works at Brasov city belt to be resumed. OCTAGON has built bored piles for section I

Brasov City Belt

Construction works at Brasov city belt, a project that started in 2003 and which was temporarily stopped, will be resumed soon.  Brasov city belt is also one of the road infrastructure projects of OCTAGON CONTRACTING & ENGINEERING. In 2011 the company was geotechnical works subcontractor and built bored piles for section I.

The National Highways and Roads Company (CNADNR) announced in a press release that the bid procedure for section I, streching between DN1 and DN11 and for section II, which connects DN 11 with DN 13, ended. Brasov city belt will have four sections, a total length of 24.3 km and two lanes on each traffic way. The road, built especially for the transport of merchandise and transit is open to traffic on two of the four sections.

So far only 56% of the works necessary for the completion of section one has been delivered. The section has a length of  7.2 km and starts from Dârstea area (from the current bypass, on which a bridge over Timisul Sec stream will be built), bypasses the landfill,  crosses the road to Tărlungeni, bypasses CET, crosses Timiş-Triaj area, and then reaches DN 11 (towards Sfântu Gheorghe) in the roundabout from Stabilus area.

Besides the two lane traffic road, the project also includes the construction of a passage, crossing DN 11 and the railway that leads to Târgu Secuiesc.

OCTAGON   performed the following works for section I of the city belt: bored piles D 1,080, cage ram in, bored pile concreting and bored pile injection.

Doubling section II which connects DN 11, the exit from Braşov to Hărman, to DN 13, the exit from Braşov to Târgu-Mureş is absolutely necessary in order to allow highway regime traffic. At the same time, an important issue faced by drivers crossing the city belt will be solved, the construction of a road passage over the city belt, at the intersection with the county road to, where many accidents have occurred.
