  Exclusive    Carlos Galvez, Country Manager AECOM Romania: Private investors needed to solve the parking spaces in Bucharest

AECOM company, delivering consultancy and engineering services in Romania in infrastructure, environmental, water and construction sectors has been involved in the past in preparing the Strategy for parking spaces in Bucharest.

February 2012

“At present we are not involved in such projects but we are interested and we are analyzing some projects of interest, “Carlos Galvez, Country Manager AECOM stated for The Diplomat-Bucharest. “One of the solutions to solve the traffic problem would be to attract private investors to construct private parking spaces in the main areas of Bucharest. Except of the lacking of these spaces, which is probably the main traffic problem, we should also consider the poor quality of the public traffic which discourages many people to use this mean of transport. As a result the number of private cars on the street is very numerous, “said Galvez as he continued: “investing in development of the metro, tram and bus network will solve this big issue of Bucharest. Some other solutions would be:  investment in public awareness campaigns to encourage the use of other transports as bicycle and motobicycle, regulation of the parking plots in the city, increase the presence of Police in traffic to prevent the bad behavior of some drivers. Least but not last a very important action would be to encourage civic education. “AECOM is present on the Romanian company through its two companies: AECOM Romania and AECOM Ingenieria, both companies registering in 2011 a turnover of approximate EUR 16.6 million and estimating for 2012, a turnover of approximate EUR 24.4 million.
