Last 21st September 2022, the official opening to traffic of the Singerei bypass took place. The new section is part of the Chisinau-Orhei-Balti highway (R6), a project that is being financed by the EBRD.
The whole scheme is part of the Moldova Road Sector Program, which is co-financed by the EBRD and the EIB and, more specifically, this rehabilitated 12-kilometres section is part of the contract “Supervision of Rehabilitation Works of R6 Chisinau – Orhei – Balti Road, km 99+530 – km 111+230, km 76+700 – km 94+700 and Bridge at km 72+944”, which was signed by IRD Engineering in late 2019.
