The Romanian government has set aside US $3.1 billion (EUR2.5 billion) to spend on construction projects in 2007.
The money will go towards developing and improving infrastructure, education and healthcare facilities.
Around $500 million of the budget will be put towards highways alone.
The funding is fuelling the already strong demand on the construction market, boosting its growth at a forecast pace of about 15% next year.
Highway construction is expected to become the driving force behind the growth of the construction market in Romania over the next few years.
