EC’s Valean is not aware of existence of road maintenance works affected by Ukrainian trucks in Romania

AGERPRES special correspondent Ionut Mares reports: The European Commissioner for Transport, Adina Valean, says that she is not aware of the existence of road maintenance works affected by Ukrainian trucks in Romania, but she admitted that the infrastructure is „very stressed by this heavy traffic on roads that are not necessarily prepared or optimal for this type of transport” and that a solution would be for a large part of this traffic to move to the railway.

„It is probably a fact that our infrastructure is very stressed by this heavy traffic on roads that are not necessarily prepared or optimal for this type of transport, that are not necessarily in the transport corridors, to have certain technical specifications. It is a reality. It’s the same situation in Moldova, Poland and the whole region,” Valean declared during a meeting with Romanian journalists on Tuesday in the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

„If there are projects that can be financed by the European Commission or partners to improve the infrastructure needed now, they will be well received”, said Valean, stating that „infrastructure needs have an open door in Brussels and international partners”.

„The European Commission does not settle invoices. There must have been a project, a description, a technical explanation, etc. There is flexibility, which was communicated as such, because if it was necessary for a member state to some investments, it was said: make the investments and after that the money can come from cohesion or from something else, but in any case there are some strict rules based on which the money is granted. I don’t know of such a project in particular” from Romania, Adina Valean said.

„Romania is also the European Union, it is also the European Commission, there is no need for someone else to settle them, it is part of everything (…) We are not necessarily doing a favor to anyone in particular. Because, if you think about it, the passage of goods through Romania, in whatever context it may be, be it on the Danube, be it through the ports, that it uses Romania’s infrastructure, it is done against taxes, as it is done everywhere. Nothing is free, so to speak. After all, there are operators who use a certain type of infrastructure, it is not humanitarian aid,” the European Commissioner for Transport also declared.
