Significant infrastructure plans unveiled by Moldova government

The construction of a new terminal at Chisinau International Airport is one of the most important components of the infrastructure project

An infrastructure reconstruction plan has been unveiled by the Moldovan government, a report has revealed. It includes the construction of a new terminal at Chisinau International Airport, the development of a critical highway, and the reconstruction of the Giurgiulesti state port.

The most significant element of the plan is the proposed terminal at Chisinau International Airport. The urgent expansion of the airport is required as forecasts predict an increase in air traffic of up to five million passengers in the coming years, stated Moldova’s Minister of Infrastructure and Regional Development, Andrei Spînu.

He also revealed that the project will have an estimated investment of at least $213mn. “The construction of a new terminal, built to European standards, needs to commence as soon as possible,” he remarked.

The report also noted that the Ungheni – Chisinau – Odessa highway is the next most crucial part of the infrastructure project. The project will take shape in two phases: Ungheni – Chisinau, covering a distance of 110km, and Chisinau – Odessa, spanning 190km, with 145km of the work being undertaken within Moldovan territory.

The highway project aims to improve transportation links, boost trade, and facilitate greater connectivity between Moldova and neighboring countries, including Ukraine and the European Union, the report outlined.

Spînu stated: “It is a strategic project that will develop our country and will integrate us into the European Union.”

He also emphasised the importance of initiating and completing these projects, from both an economic and geopolitical perspective, irrespective of their timeline.
