Giurgiu is situated in southern part of the country, on the left bank of Danube, 65 km south of the capital, on the border with the Bulgarian city of Ruse.
The urban transport faces difficulties due to the territory enlargement, the production development and especially to the interference of two important elements: the population growth and its rapid motorization. The fast expansion of the city led to a considerable development of the inland transport of all types. These facts result in an inadequate street network, in terms of circulation system, trails and infrastructure.
The appearance of congestion emphasizes the tendency towards reaching the limits of the network capacity, taking into consideration the traffic intensity and the negative influence on the quality of infrastructure, therefore leading to the inability of travelling, traffic blockages and congested roads.
