B2 finalized the construction works on his behalf and reported as achieved 0,51 km of modernized roads in Calafat.

B3 achieved one joint mechanism to facilitate the connection of secondary/tertiary nodes to TEN-T infrastructure, namely the awareness raising campaign on safety. In addition, B3 had received the report for the traffic safety measures mechanism and 3 traffic smart boards for the route guidance mechanism, which were delivered to LB, B2 and one of them to be installed at the intersection of the roads III-114 and E-79.
