According to the Dobrogea-Seaside branch of the Romanian Water Company, the projects aiming to widen and consolidate the Romanian beaches may be put into practice in 2008. The consolidation works would last until 2012 and cost 300 million euros. The result would be 100 meter wide beaches. The areas where the said projects will be implemented are Constanta, Eforie and Costinesti.
More details here.
So, we have the funds, at least theoretically, and we want a huge auction with international companies to make sure we find the best one for the job. However, we won’t start right away, we will wait until 2008 to get it started. Why is that?
If the funds do not exist as of now, well, still, the Water Company could at least arrange for the interested companies to present their projects and state their prices. Then choose one and start having fun when the money materializes. But no, why not wait a little longer?
I guess we should at least say thank God it’s not taking 20 years like expanding a metro line!
