Progress made on new sustainable infrastructure in Iași (Romania)

The city of Ia?i in eastern Romania has published a progress report on the redevelopment of transport infrastructure in the city, much of which is being achieved with EU funding.
The redevelopment of Ia?i's historic centre was completed in 2013, including the rebuilding and resurfacing of streets and pavements and the introduction of cycle lanes. A modernised tram line was also implemented, and one boulevard has been entirely pedestrianised to increase access to the city's many tourist attractions.

Swiss funding enables Suceava to trial and purchase electric buses (Romania)

Suceava is among the cities receiving Swiss funding for sustainable infrastructure projects, and is testing electric buses in the municipality.
Passengers in the city of Suceava in northern Romania could be travelling on electric buses if a two week trial proves that the vehicles are suited to running in the municipality. The primary factors the municipality aims to determine are how many kilometres the buses can travel on a single charge and how expensive they are to maintain.
