The Transport Ministry will start the auction for the Eroilor-Universitate metro line in Bucharest in the next few days, said transport minister Sorin Buse. This is about auctions for 500 km of highways, 300 km of express roads, eight bypasses. The line could be completed by 2020, when Bucharest will host four football matches of the European Championship. The projects are aimed at easing traffic in Bucharest, by providing viable alternatives.

The project for the metro line connecting Bucharest to the Otopeni airport will also be presented to the Government in the next weeks. The authorities are currently working on two main metro lines, namely the Drumul Taberei-Eroilor metro line, and well as the 1 Mai- Straulesti line. Both projects are facing big delays.
