There is no middlediver and only at level crossings. Plus they run through cities and villages. That is not an expressway.

Second by-pass for Romania

Romania is looking to build a second bypass project, colsting some €80 million, around the city of Bacau. The project is still in the early stages and is currently tendering out consultancy services.

The 30km bypass has been described as having roughly the same financial structure as the bypass planned for the city of Constanta.
The EIB has signed a loan agreement with the Romanian government and there is a strong possibility that private investment will be sought.

Going down the PPP route is a strong possibility having looked at neighbouring countries using the same methods.

Daniel Dana, project developer at Hill International, which recently won a tender for consultancy services for the Constanta bypass, said: "We have submitted a proposal for Bacau bypass and are awaiting a response.

"However, there many issues surrounding projects in Romania, particularly political issues where projects take too long to be approved by the central government.

"There is also the fact that there is a lack of interest from private contractors to build and invest in these projects."
Nice to see Romania progressing. I hope this is the start for many more bypasses, so through traffic isn't clogging up the cities anymore.

What is the difference in definition between motorways and expressways in Romania?

Actually as far as I know there isn't a clear standard for expressways; some refer to any 2x2 national road as expressways - and usually these pass straight through villages!

Even though I am Romanian, I don't know much about the subject, perhaps someone else living closer to Bucharest can tell us more...

OK, I've asked my fellow Romanians on the Eastern European subforum, basically I was correct, there are no expressways at the moment but some will be built in the future:

But there are 5 planned real expressways like:
DX Sibiu - Fagaras (80km)
DX Turda - Sebes (80km parts of it is planned as motorway) [click for plan]
DX Craiova - Pitesti (120km) [click for plan]
DX Petea - Baia Mare (67 + 20 km)
DX Arad Oradea (115km)
Also, I've read on a Romanian news site that expropriations for the Petea - Baia Mare express road are already underway.

That yellow sign in one of the pics: "Stop accidentelor. Viata are prioritate" means "Stop to the accidents. Life has priority". I've noticed they indeed place them in places where there are many accidents.

Romanian road project

Finnish consultant Pöyry is working on an engineering contract for the Romanian Road Administration. The contract is for the Sibiu - Fagaras express road and Pöyry’s share of the project is worth 7 million Euros, while it work in co-operation with a local partner. Linking Sibiu and Fagaras in the Transylvanian area in central Romania, this project provides a key update to the Romanian road network and will meet European Union standards. The road will be some 80km long and the total investment is estimated to be in the region of EUR 400 million. Pöyry's services include optimisation of the alignment, preliminary and tender design for the design and build contractor and site supervision.

Work on A3 highway is intensive. Bechtel is working hard to recover years of delay caused by government's renegotiation of contract (period during which work was stopped).
At this moment Bechtel is working on 2 sectors: Bors (near Hungarian border) - Suplacu de Barcau and Cluj-Napoca (Gilau) - Turda (approx. 40 Km).
Under political pressure Bechtel layed this year the first layer of asphalt on 3 Kiometers from Cluj Napoca - Turda sector. It appears this will be the first finished sector from A3 (Autostrada Transilvania) with an estimate date for opening to traffic in October-November 2008 even if the contract states the due date is 2010.
I'm looking forward to driving on this highway sector next year.

That road looks like Slovakian roads. Although I hope the asphalt is not so bumpy there.

A new highway will be built between Transylvania Highway and the town of Dej, crossing through Nokia plant in Jucu. It will have 75 Km, and will cost ~8 milion euros for each Km. I will begin in Gilau, will be linked with Transylvania Highway at Luna Interchange, will saround Cluj-Napoca by South, will pass near Cluj International Airport, and will continue towards Jucu and finaly Dej. The construction will start in April.

Lucrările la “autostrada Nokia” încep în aprilie

Lucrările la autostrada urbană Gilău-Jucu (cu extindere spre Dej) vor începe la finele lunii aprilie, au declarat pentru ZIUA de Cluj surse din administraţie. În total, autostrada va măsura 75 de kilometri. Costurile au fost evaluate la peste opt milioane de euro pe kilometru. Lucrarea va începe de la nodul rutier din localitatea Jucu.
Compania Naţională de Autostrăzi şi Drumuri Naţionale din România (CNADNR) pregăteşte deja licitaţia pentru atribuirea lucrării de execuţie a autostrăzii urbane, au precizat surse din administraţie. Şi arhitectul judeţului, Radu Spânu, a confirmat că aprilie este termenul la care a fost programată începerea lucrărilor.

“Conform proiectului, lucrarea va debuta spre finele lui aprilie, începând de la nodul denivelat din localitatea Jucu”, a precizat arhitectul. Acesta a explicat că reprezentanţii companiei de proiectare Iptana trebuie să finalizeze studiul de fezabilitate până în martie, urmând ca mai apoi CNADNR să poată organiza licitaţia pentru execuţia lucrării.

Trebuie reamintit că autostrada urbană Gilău – Jucu măsura, în proiectul iniţial, peste 40 de kilometri, iar preţul de realizare a fost estimat la aproximativ 370.000.000 de euro.

Ulterior, s-a decis prelungirea autostrăzii spre Dej cu 35 de kilometri, costurile devenind aproape duble. Autostrada ar urma să se desfăşoare pe patru benzi. Porneşte din comuna Gilău, se intersectează cu nodul denivelat de drumuri de la capătul sudic al comunei Luna şi coboară dealurile până la sud de localitatea Floreşti, în zona unităţii militare.

Traseul parcurge mai departe zona Floreşti până la Cetatea Fetei. Apoi se îndreaptă spre municipiul Cluj-Napoca, prin Făget, în paralel cu centura ocolitoare a Primăriei – tronsonul sud. De aici, drumul ajunge în zona străzilor Câmpului şi E. Ionescu, intră pe strada C. Brâncuşi, H. Coandă şi zona Selgros.

Traversează Băile Someşeni şi intră în zona de locuinţe până la capătul pistei de aterizare-decolare a aeroportului, unde se întretaie cu intersecţia denivelată DN1C (Aurel Vlaicu, Traian Vuia). Ocoleşte apoi localităţile Sânicoară şi Apahida şi continuă prin Jucu spre Dej.

EUR12.8 billion boost to Romania's economy offers new opportunities for property investors
14th February 2008,By Andrea Harper, Deputy Editor, Property Secrets
http://www.propertysecrets.net/artic...tors/1934.html

€12.8billion is being invested in Romania's motorways to create the country's first national motorway network.

As part of a strategy to improve the country's transport infrastructure, the Transport Ministry is now implementing a major motorway construction programme. This aims to increase the motorway network from 114 kilometres to 2,319 kilometres by 2013. In 2008, the target is to complete 809 kilometres of new motorway.

This huge infrastructure project will provide the country with its first national motorway network. It will not only link the country's major cities but, essentially, also provide a link to Europe.

Critics have cited the lack of an adequate motorway network as a major obstacle holding back the Romanian economy.

There have been claims that business investors, although attracted by Romania's highly skilled workforce and low manufacturing costs, have been deterred by the country's poor motorway infrastructure.

Barriers removed

The new motorway network will remove this barrier. It is seen as providing a major boost to the economy and a hugely important magnet for further FDI into the county.

Although the capital has generally been the focus for FDI, an enhanced motorway network means business investors can choose from an even wider choice of locations.

Increased FDI will also lead to wealth creation and a greater demand for property. Not only is a prime location on the motorway network attractive to potential investors, it is also a desirable place for people to live as it is a great commuter area, with excellent transport links.

The main motorway projects currently being implemented include:

Transilvania Motorway linking Brasov and Bors. Two sections, from Suplacu de Barcau to Bors (64km) and Campia Turzii to Gilau (54km) are due to be finished this year.

Work is due to start in March on the section between Mihaileati and Suplacu de Barcau (76km). This is expected to cost €489million. Work on the Gilau - Mihailesti section is scheduled to start this year and is estimated to cost €149million. Both sections are due to be completed in December 2011.

This is currently the largest civil engineering project in Europe, which started in 2004 and is due to complete in 2013. When finished, this four-lane highway will cover 415 kilometres, stretching from Brasov across to Oradea on the Romanian border with Hungary. It will link the cities of Brasov, Fagaras, Sighisoara, Targu Mures, Cluj Napoca, Zalau and Oradea.

The Ministry of Transport has currently allocated €520million for the project in 2008. Construction costs were originally set at €2.2billion for the total project, but with rising construction costs and increased land prices, there is speculation this could double.

By the end of December 2007, the project directly employed 3,300 Romanians and more than 800 Romanian subcontractors.



Bucharest to Brasov Motorway. February is the start date for the construction of the section from Bucharest to Maora Vlasiei (19km) and further work is planned on the Moara Vlasiei to Ploiesti section and the Comarnic - Brasov section.

This is part of a €1.6billion project, which is being funded by the Romanian Government.

This year, construction is due to start on a series of major by-pass schemes to link a number of Romanian cities with the motorway network.

These include:

The Ploiesti Vest by-pass
The Constanta by-pass
Bucharest Northern by-pass
These will provide a missing link between the Sun Motorway, which runs from Bucharest to Constanta, through to the Bucharest to Pitesti Motorway.

Segments of the Pan-European Corridor, connecting Constanta to Bucharest and Sibiu to Nadlac, on the western border, are due to be built this year.

In 2009, another 180km of motorway will be completed, with 682km under construction. These figures will rise to 238 km of completed motorway in 2010, with work underway on a further 907km of new motorway.

By 2013, the aim is that Romania will have 2,139km of new motorway and 507km of new expressways.


The total estimated cost of building this new road infrastructure is €12.8billion.
Around €6.5billion is coming from the Romanian Government, with €1.5billion from the EU and €600 million from external loans.

The remaining shortfall of €4.2billion is expected to be paid through a private finance scheme, which will involve privatising parts of the motorway network. Companies can agree to cover construction costs for a section of new motorway and then charge an agreed toll.

Simon Blakeborough, Property Secrets' Investment Director, said: "€12.8billion is a truly huge investment. This road network is quite literally going to transform Romania's logistical landscape. I really see this as a massive boost for the economy long term.

"Romania has been criticised in the past for its poor motorways and there have been claims this has put major investors off. But the government has responded and put in place this very progressive strategy to link up whole country with a national motorway network.

"A lot of Romania's third tier cities have fallen under the radar of property developers, but the new motorway network will certainly put them on the map. They present great investment opportunities as they will combine great locations with excellent transport links."

Pretty impressive all these investments. A good start, i would say. Romania is currently the largest motorway construction site in Europe. But they also have a lot of catching up to do.

The expectations of the Romanian economy are high, because of it great potential factor.
