Officials from the Capital City Hall announced that those from the Bucharest Street Administration have started repair work on the sidewalks of IC Brătianu boulevard. The works are to be completed in November and will have a guarantee period of 12 months from reception.
It took 395 days for those from the Capital City Hall to start work on the modernization of one of the busiest areas in Bucharest, after Libertatea wrote about this problem. We are talking about the sidewalks on IC Brătianu boulevard, between Universitătăii Square and Unirii Square.
Most of the tiles on the sidewalks were no longer fixed in the ground, they were broken, broken and represent a real danger for those who dared to walk there. “Can’t you see that all these tiles are out of place? Nobody cares. They are out of the ground, they are broken, they are a real danger”, one of the passers-by in the area told us in August 2021.
Everything was broken
13 months after the first article published in Libertatea regarding the trap-sidewalks in the center of the Capital, Bucharest City Hall announced that those from the Bucharest Streets Administration have started repair work. And they are already out on the ground to rebuild the destroyed areas.
“We intervene for the repair of the sidewalks related to IC Brătianu boulevard, after several years in which no more funds were allocated in this regard. Also, in the next period, the works will be extended to the sidewalks on Ghe. Magheru boulevard and in Piaţa Unirii. The works are to be completed in November 2022 and will have a guarantee period of 12 months from reception”, was the message sent by Nicușor Dan, the mayor of Bucharest.
Furthermore, within the same works contract, the Bucharest Streets Administration will repair, in total, approximately 60 problem sidewalks.
Dozens of critics after the City Hall’s announcement
People reacted immediately to the municipality’s announcement. “Stop putting those tiling messes around town, they’re lethal come rain or snow! Natural ice rinks! After a week of walking on them, they move and are another danger to trip over and break your legs,” Carmen Șerbănescu wrote on Facebook. “Rag. The foundation is poorly made. This is not the way to pave” was Doina Răducan’s message. And Elena Albăstroiu noted “Bucharest has never looked like this! Soon it will look like after the bombing!”.
The old investment cost one million euros
Installed in April 2016, the tiles have deteriorated, and the Municipality has not taken any steps to solve the problem. In 2015, the Street Administration concluded a repair contract for the sidewalk on bd. IC Brătianu with SC Tehnologica Radion SRL, and the works were executed in 2016. The amount of this contract was 4,560,000 lei without VAT.
