Structural Funds and Cohesion Funds are funds allocated by the European Union for two related purposes, firstly support for the poorer regions of Europe, and, secondly, support for integrating European infrastructure especially in the transport sector. Current programmes run from 1 January 2000 to 31 December 2006, with €54.4 billion budget for Structural Funds, and €18bn for the Cohesion Fund.
In order to achieve economic growth a country needs to have a decent infrastructure as a basis.

They do exist As I posted at the Spanish forum, these kind of roads would be like the Ma-15 in Mallorca which is not considered Autovia, and has a Vmax of 100km/h (sorry, I didn't find better pictures)

Regarding the number of cars and its relation to the infrastructure in a country, one must note that differences among regions are huge.

I posted this chart at the spanish forum some weeks ago. The funny thing is that there is not a clear pattern that relates the data to GDP, Density, or to other factors.



żDo you have this data for other countries?

New motorways/nationalroads in your country

I wanted ask how well they make new motorways and nationalroads in your country, are they really smooth when they are new or are they already with a bump here and there, it is art for me to make motorways so smooth that you feel nothing and think you are in a maglev rather than a road, it is apsolutely amazing and consummade if companies manage to make the motorways that smooth, how are new motorways in your countries. I think I´ve told you enough of the motorways in Bulgaria, especially one certain motorway.

You would be very disappointed with new motorways in New Zealand and Australia with all the botts dots and cats eyes on the road surface. More like a Maglev with stones on the track

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.

No, that´s just bullshit, I know how new roads in other couries feel and how new roads in Bulgaria feel, in some countries they are fine but in some they don´t manage to make them smooth, Do you know that the newly rehabilitated motorway Belgrade Nish feels like a rollercoaster, you see black asphalt but it goes up and down, up and down... That´s not how it should be, that´s not soemthing against Serbians, they manage to build good roads but Belgrade Nish rehabilitated section feels like a rollercoaster.

You thing the Serbs are gonna waste money rebuilding the whole motorway, while repaving does the job? Because, those rollercoaster roads, as you call it, require a total new foundation, which is unnecessary expensive.
