But Romania's capital city in the heart of Walachia is increasingly threatened by traffic congestion. A new inner-city motorway feeder road from the city centre to the existing A1 motorway - with 17 bridge structures the largest bridge construction site in Bucharest - is intended to remedy this situation. Max Bögl, as technical leader in Arge, was awarded the contract for the construction of the new 6.7-kilometer-long motorway feeder road with a construction volume of over 143 million euros. In the course of this major project, the Virtutii junction in particular represents a technical challenge. With its numerous access and departure ramps as well as bridge structures in a wide variety of designs, it will in future enable drivers to cross the existing ring and the artificial canal Dâmboviţa without crossing. The heart of the approximately 1,100-metre-long section is the modern cable-stayed bridge with its 68-metre-high pylon, which bridges the canal without piers with a span of 165 metres.
