Good news. But the biggest is that we may have 116 km opened this year. Quite ambitious, but let's see.

Bechtel to hire up to 1500 workers and expand works on 3 highway sections

Bechtel plan: Three new sections of road in 2008

Autor: Ziarul Financiar
Data: 14-02-2008

Bechtel, the US construction firm behind the Transylvanian highway, has announced that it plans to work on all three sections of the road between Cluj and Bors in 2008. Works on this first section, which stretches 164 kilometres, should be completed by the end of 2010, according to the contract signed with the Romanian authorities.

The three sections targeted this year are 3A (Gilau - Mihaesti), 3B (Mihaesti - Suplacu de Barcau), and 3C (Suplacu de Barcau - Bors). Bechtel, which has received 30% of the 442 million euros allocated for 2008 from the Government, has announced it will hire 500 to 1,500 workers this year, which will handle the construction works.

In addition, Bechtel has voiced interest to take part in the job fair, organised by the Ministry of Labour and held in Rome on February 23. According to sources close to the Transylvanian motorway project, wages offered to Romanian workers who come from abroad could exceed 500 euros, but this depends on the type of work and whether they are skilled or not. Last year, Bechtel hired almost 2,000 people throughout all the counties through which the road passes- Bihor, Cluj, Salaj, Mures and Alba. Representatives of the CNADNR (National Authority in charge of Highways and National Roads), and Transport Ministry officials asked Bechtel to complete works on the section between Kilometres 17 and 42 (Tureni - Valisoara), however, the American company is still facing problems such as land expropriation, delayed approvals from archaeologists, and the relocation of utilities.

Individual motorways aren't allowed there, especially when Romania is rather small anyway. Exceptions can only be for example the Trans-Canada Highway, which is extremely long and there's not much talk about other Canadian highways anyway.

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.

Romania: Upgrade of Motorways

OXFORD BUSINESS GROUP
20 February 2008
http://www.oxfordbusinessgroup.com/weekly01.asp?id=3661

Romania's government has laid out plans to extend the motorway network by more than a third this year. This is part of a $19bn investment plan which will enlarge the system to almost 2000 km in the next seven years.

Romania currently has less than 300km of European-standard motorways as part of its 15,900 km "national road" network. This compares unfavourably with countries such as Hungary, a considerably smaller country in terms of both geographical size and population, which has around 650km of motorways.

A plan drawn up by the ministry of transport and the National Company for Motorways and National Roads in Romania (CNADNR) sets out details to extend Romania's motorway network to a total of 1950 km by the end of 2013, including 120 km this year. During this period, some $18.7bn will be invested, including $2.2bn from the EU.

The EU money will specifically be spent on developing motorways along the "Pan-European transport corridors" that have been highlighted as important but under-developed transcontinental routes, of which two pass through the country. One, corridor IX, runs from the Bulgarian border at Giurgiu through Romania, Moldova to Ukraine and Russia. The second, corridor IV, connects the western city of Timisoara with Hungary and Central Europe, and then divides into two different routes, one east through the southern Transylvanian city of Brasov to Bucharest and Constanta on the Black Sea, and the other south through Craiova to Bulgaria and the Aegean Sea.

As the EU corridors suggest, Romania lies at a key position in Europe, but does not have the matching transport infrastructure to unlock its full economic potential. A lack of investment and political squabbles over tenders has hamstrung progress since the fall of the Ceausescu regime in 1989. While Ceausescu completed the admittedly impressive Trans-Fagaras road across the country's highest mountain range and kept the basic transport infrastructure going, only two motorways were completed - the 110km A1 from Bucharest to Pitesti in the north-east and between Bucharest and Constanta, as part of the planned A2 "Sun Motorway".

Progress on extending the A2 has been intermittent. Around 150 km has been completed, and the full 204 km is expected to be operational by 2010. Given the country's economic crises and political turmoil in the 1990s, some delay is not surprising but has prevented the realisation of the port's planned potential and limited the region's economic development.

Meanwhile, another extremely important motorway project, the $10.5bn Autostrada Transilvania, has faced delays due to political issues surrounding the project, but will see two major stages completed this year. This 415km-long motorway will link Brasov, north of Bucharest, to Budapest and Central Europe. The contract was awarded to American firm Bechtel without tender in 2003 by the then socialist government, provoking criticism from European funding bodies. Work was suspended on the election of the Justice and Truth (DA) coalition the following year, but restarted in 2006, still under Bechtel's management. Sections close to the Hungarian border and south of the large city of Cluj Napoca are likely to be completed and operational by the end of this year while the whole road is scheduled to be finished by 2013.

The Autostrada Transilvania will connect with the Bucharest-Brasov motorway, on which construction commenced last year and which is expected to be fully operational by 2014.

The government's seven-year plan also foresees the construction of several other motorways. One will follow the eastern corridor IV route from Timisoara to Constanta; another will go north from the capital to the central city of Targu Mures, and from there to the Moldovan border at Iasi, though this stage of the project has a more tentative timeline. A link from Bucharest to Giurgiu should also be completed.

Several of the motorway projects in Romania, including the Autostrada Transilvana, are being constructed on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis. This entails a contractor building the road on the government's behalf, and then operating it as a toll road until it has earned its contract fee, before passing it back into the government's hands. This is, of course, a convenient way to pass many expenses off the state balance sheet, but also encourages the contractor to ensure that the construction is swift, and the road well maintained.

For all the grand plans and optimism, the travails of the Romanian motorway network's development may not all be over. The government faces the hurdle of expropriating an estimated 9000 ha of land along the routes of the planned motorways. This is a difficult enough task in any country, given the problems of land valuation and local opposition. It is even more of a challenge in Romania, with its hazy post-communist land ownership deeds, bureaucracy and occasional but damaging corruption. The government must have the will to match its ambitions.

Very nice. I think the Transilvania motorway has the highest priority, since it can connect to the central and western European markets, as well to the port of Constanta, which can grow to the most important port on the Black Sea.

Yes, Transilvania motorway is the No1 priority of the governement, given the high amount of money it allocated already for this year: over 0.5 billion EUR.

Constanta is already the largest port at the Black Sea after Istambul, but it will grow a lot larger when Transilvania highway and A2 (Bucharest-Constanta) highway will be completed.

AFAIK, Constanta is bigger and has better infrastructure than Odessa, but I think Joce can give you a more detailed answer here.

CONSTANTA`s ports & shipyards - news

The Port of Constantza is booming. The traffic in the port is bigger than Odessa, Novorossiysk, Iliychevsk, Varna, Burgas and Poti together. Slowly but surely Constanta will become the new Rotterdam of Europe !

* am vrut sa fac acum un pic de ordine acolo si am sters unele stiri dar nu-mi amintesc care ! Nu prea am timp saptamanile urmatoare de SSC dar sper sa repar greseala pe viitor. Am reordonat insa ce a ramas intact !

Thanks, Joce. But, you mean Constanta is bigger than

Exactly ! Check the situation in 2005, page 17 of 26: http://www.osce.org/documents/eea/2007/09/26163_en.pdf

And we are doing much better now than in 2005 ! For instance, the traffic in 2007 (1.411.370 TEU) is almost the double of 2005 (770.000 TEU )! In other words, we kick ass at Black Sea and we`ll kick ass in Europe, too!

WOW, I really did not expect that! What about Istambul?

(and this is the last question as I do not want to bother you too much as I know you are busy).
