Romania will build a pontoon bridge across the Prut River to transport grain from Ukraine
The government of Romania and the government of Moldova will build a pontoon bridge across the border river Prut to improve the transportation of goods from Ukraine, primarily food.
This was stated by the State Secretary of the Romanian Ministry of Transport, Irinel Skriostianu, the newspaper reported Gospodarka Morska.
A new pontoon crossing is planned to be built on the place where the bridge between the village of Bumbata (Romania) and the town of Leova (Moldova) stood until 1944, then destroyed by the troops of the Soviet Red Army.
The bridge will be used for the movement of both cars and trucks.
“In recent months, the governments of Romania and Moldova announced a number of logistics projects to improve the transportation of goods from Ukraine, especially grain. Due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Romanian port of Constanta is important for the shipment of grain from this country via the Black Sea,” the publication emphasized.
