The second phase of quay extension works on two berths will soon commence at the Port of Midia on Romania's Black Sea coast. The works will be undertaken at a cost of approximately RON55.65 million (US$12.11 million) as part of a complex and phased program to modernise the port's infrastructure and align it with European standards.

Berth 10 will be extended with a quay made of blocks with a length of 53.9 metres. The extension of the quay of berth 12 will meanwhile involve construction of a quay made of prefabricated concrete blocks with a length of 306 metres.

Dredging works will also be performed at berth 12. This will ensure a depth of eight metres as well as guarantee sufficient width for large ships to manoeuvre safely.

About RON47.06 million (US$10.24 million) in funding for the project will be provided by the European Union and the Romanian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure. The two parties will each contribute RON23.53 million (US$5.12 million).
