The Transylvanian Motorway Project is a modern, high speed motorway extending 415 kilometres from the city of Brasov in central Romania through the major cities of Targu Mures, Cluj- Napoca, Zalau and Oradea and ending at Bors in the north eastern part of the country on the Romanian- Hungarian Border. ENKA and Bechtel GP’s scope comprised of design and construction of two sections of 112 km of
The Transylvanian Motorway has a critical significance in connecting Romania to Western Europe and constitutes one of the fundamental parts of the country’s motorway system. The motorway plays an important role in the integration of the Romanian economy to the European economic system serving as a major link between the European and Central Asian markets.
The motorway project yields substantial economical returns for Romania. The new national highway brings the country’s infrastructure in line with that of its new economic partners in the EU zone. The road eased traffic jams, improved safety, and opened up the country to new possibilities for tourism and trade.

LocationBrasov – Bors, Romania
- ENKA’s scope comprised of design and construction of two sections of 112 kilometres of Autostrada Transylvania. These Sections of the motorway are passing through varying terrain including plains, hills, mountains and valleys requiring the design and construction of more than 60 structures such as bridges and viaducts with a total length of 9,000 meters to facilitate the passage of the motorway
- Muddy and weather sensitive soil conditions were the specific construction challenge which required adopting specific construction and execution methods in order to achieve quality and schedule planned
- Quick construction of piles is another significant feature of the project. The monthly peak value of pile construction was 17,345 piles.
ENKA SCOPE OF SERVICES
In this 112 kilometres motorway project, scope of works consisted the construction of 63 over and underpasses, 8,140 meters long bridges, and 16 million cubic meters of excavation, 13 million cubic meters of fill, 891 thousand cubic meters of concrete, 176 thousand meters of pile, 129 thousand meters of drainage pipe, 2.5 million tons of subbase & CTB and 883 thousand tons of asphalt.
As a result of teamwork, the project reached 1.67 million person-hours and with providing more than 3,700 hours of work safety & health training for workers, all sections of the project became safe areas in 2012.
