Metrorex line 4 extension pre-feasibility and feasibility studies
Bucharest faces increasing difficulties in providing good quality transport for its citizens. Car numbers grew and continue to grow and therefore congestion, pollution and parking problems are increasing year by year. There is an urgent need for projects and substantial investments into the metro network. The project consists of the preparation of the pre-feasibility study (PFS) and the feasibility study (FS) for an important extension of the M4 metro line in Bucharest, between Gara de Nord and Gara Progresu. This planned extension includes 14 km of underground line with 14 stations, fixed installations and rolling stock at an estimated cost of over 1 billion Euro. It will link the city centre to the South of Bucharest, as well as two major railway stations. The studies are a necessary step to secure financing for this large infrastructure project.

The direct beneficiary is S.C. Metrorex S.A. who will be able to push forward one of its main extension projects. Indirect beneficiaries are all potential passengers who will benefit of an improved public transportation system, the inhabitants of the concerned area who will benefit of better economic conditions and all the inhabitants of Bucharest and its surroundings who will benefit of reduced air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions through the anticipated modal transfer.
The overall objective is to precise Metrorex’ options for a planned extension of its metro line 4 between Gara de Nord and Gara Progresu (pre-feasibility) and to elaborate the selected option in order to allow the financing and implementation of this major urban transportation project in Bucharest.
The goal of the project is to elaborate the PFS and FS of the M4 line extension from Bucharest North railway station (Gara de Nord) to Progresu railway station (Gara Progresu), comprising 14 kilometers of metro rail, including excavations and tunnels for rail network and stations respectively, 14 stations, signaling, electro-mechanical system, all ancillary facilities and rolling stock.
