The Control Body of the Romanian PM Viorica Dancila is investigating the way in which the contracts for the building of the Metro line 5, Drumul Taberei – Eroilor metro line were run. In addition, the Control Body of the Minister of Transport is investigating the circumstances that led to the project’s contractors being paid RON 188 million in compensation.

According to a court decision, Metrorex must pay compensation to the association Astaldi -FCC Construction SA and Delta ACM 93 SRL, AB Construct SRL for requests made between 2011 – 2015.

Both Metrorex, and the institutions with a role in controlling activities on the safety of travel are continuously checking that the procedures are followed, and the incidents that occur while the trains are running are being investigated by the Romanian Railway Investigation Agency – AGIFER.
