Major transport funding boost for Galați (Romania)

The Romanian city of Galați has secured both a loan of € 22.6 million and a grant of € 900 000 from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to upgrade its urban transport facilities.

Galați is seeking to improve current road conditions and decrease travel time, fuel consumption and air pollution, all of which are the result of underinvestment in urban infrastructure. The money will be used to revitalise key streets, purchase new trolleybuses and introduce an automated ticketing system for public transport.
