407 million euro from Cohesion policy funds are currently invested in three road infrastructure projects in Romania. These projects aim to improve connectivity and, ultimately, growth and employment in the western part of the country.

Over 336 million euro has been invested in the construction of the section between the cities of Dumbrava and Deva on the Lugoj-Deva highway (part of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T)) and related infrastructure.

Approximately 62 million euro will help to refurbish part of the national road between the cities of Alexandria and Craiova in the southwest of the country. This will improve road safety and reduce journey time.

Finally, nearly 9 million euros will finance the construction of the section between the cities of Timişoara and Lugoj and a ring road on the outskirts of Timişoara.
