Basarab cable-stayed bridge – lighting a landmark in Bucharest


Florin Marius Legea, Deputy Executive Director, Planning and Project Preparation Department, City of Bucharest


Basarab Bridge is the biggest and most complex infrastructure project achieved in Romania in the past 20 years. The key component of the closing of Bucharest’s main ring road, it is a new connection that enhances the development of the city in the North-West area and contributes to the flow of the traffic.
Designing and implementing an adapted and modern lighting for Basarab bridge – the longest cable-stayed bridge in Romania, the largest one in Europe, and the most important intermodal node in the country – has been a challenge and a priority for the city.
