The Bucharest Metro is an underground rapid transit system that serves the capital of Romania, Bucharest. It first opened for service on 16 November 1979. The network is run by Metrorex. One of two parts of the larger Bucharest public transport network, Metrorex carries approximately 500,000 passengers per weekday, compared to the 2,650,000 daily riders on Bucharest’s RATB transit system. In total, the Metrorex system is 69.3 kilometres (43.1 mi) long and has 51 stations.
The Bucharest Metro project involved the extension of Line 5 between Universitate and Pantelimon, the construction of the Pantelimon 2 depot, and the acquisition of 30 new trains for this line. The new section linked the Centre to Eastern Bucharest, increasing the annual number of metro passengers by 34 million to almost 260 million, and offering 350,000 inhabitants an alternative to surface transportation. The new metro Line 5 option has brought about a reduction in traffic congestion and a decrease in traffic-related emissions and noise levels.
For the Bucharest Metro Line 5 project more than 9,300 Rawlplug 600 ml R-KEX-II epoxy resin with M32 post-installed rebars were installed to reinforce the foundation.
