Transylvanian Motorway, Romania
The project, the contract for which was signed in 2004, consists of the construction of a four-lane, 415 km highway, stretching northwest from Brasov in central Romania to Oradea on the country's border with Hungary. The motorway will go through the cities of Brasov, Fagaras, Sighisoara, Targu Mures, Cluj and Oradea skirting the Carpathian Mountains on a high plateau, some 1,000 m above sea level. The motorway which is currently the largest road infrastructure project in Europe is sponsored and owned by the Government of Romania and is to be constructed by Bechtel and ENKA.

Upon completion, which is scheduled to take place in December, 2013, it will constitute the most important section of the Romanian national highway system, providing the essential connection with the rest of Europe. The construction of the motorway is particularly important for Romania's integration into the European economy and will link the markets of Europe and Central Asia. 

The construction works includes 90 million cubic meters of excavation, 64 million cubic meters of backfill, 1.9 million cubic meters of concrete, 7.3 million cubic meters of subbase and 3.8 million tonnes of asphalt and over 32 km of bridges and viaducts will be constructed.
