Only it's not a motorway, not even an express road. It's just a standard 2x1 road with bypasses around a few towns - but it still passes through lots of villages along the way.

So then if this is true, what's the benefit of the drivers?
probably there are no street lights, only zebras

what is the speed limit on this by-passes in south ?

Mind you, I am not talking about the existing road!

Yes, but I doubt as well that they will build a full-profile motorway. Perhaps they will be Lugoj-type bypasses.

Craiova will have a full profile expressway, so I expect the others to follow. The plans for a Bucharest-Craiova motorway are recent but I expect them to materialize even sooner than C IV (south), for many reasons, including US/Ford lobbying. I just hope it won't be another "Bechtel". I mean, it couldn't anymore but who knows... this route could get very well EU financing.

About the article itself: is as stupid as the one about the so called Lugoj bypass motorway. I don't know about Craiova, but Caracal and Alexandria will have normal 2x1 bypasses (12m width) and those bypasses will be part of the rehabilitation of national route DN6 between Alexandria and Craiova, tendered only one week ago. One of the winners (the rehabilitation of the road was divided in 5 sections) is "Tehnologica Radion" from Bucharest.

Ghost Rider 2 shooting begins on Trans-Fagaras motorway



2 Noiembrie 2010

Shooting for the movie “Ghost Rider 2 – Spirit of Vengeance” featuring Nicolas Cage in the leading role began on Monday on the Trans-Fagaras motorway (northwest of Bucharest, running across the Fagaras Massif); traffic will be restricted on several road sections until November 6.

Filming of the first scenes, which also use an especially equipped helicopter, kicked off after several days of preparation in two locations on the Trans-Fagaras motorway: the Arges Gorges area stretching from the Capataneni hydro-power plant to the Vidraru dam, and the ascending section between the Capra chalet and the Balea tunnel. Nicolas Cage did not show up at the site, as he is doubled by a stuntman who will shoot several scenes on motorcycle.

According to one of the film producers, Avi Arad, the Trans-Fagaras motorway was chosen out of several possible locations for the first scenes due to its spectacular landscape that provides the best setting for the movie’s action. “We started preparations for the filming in Romania as early as August and we traveled to quite a number of places in the country… The Trans-Fagaras motorway is one of the most beautiful motorways in Europe.

This is where the movie action will start and we wanted the introducing sequences to be grandiose and spectacular,” said the producer. Traffic restrictions on the Trans-Fagaras motorway will be maintained until November 6, after which filming will continue in other places in the country. “Ghost Rider 2 – Spirit of Vengeance” is the first 3D movie shot in Romania. It is produced by Columbia Pictures, in collaboration with the Romanian production house Castel Film.

Craiova will have 2x2. I tried to look for the profile of the Caracal and Alexandria by-passes but couldn't find them.

I didn't notice that! And it's right in the header!

Our journalists ussually translate motorway with highway, but it a first to see a normal road translated with motorway.

Drivers Without Snow Tires May Be Fined RON2500-4000 (EUR 500-900) - Draft

Romanian drivers will be required to use winter tires between November 1 and March 31, or pay a fine between 2,500 and 4,000 lei (EUR1=RON4.2967), in addition to the damage done to the road if they have no insurance.

These penalties will also apply if the vehicles have no snow chains or other permitted anti-swerving equipment when driving over frozen roads, according to a Government decision drafted by the Ministry of Transport. The document also says 10% of the fines will be transferred to the state budget and 90% will be used on road maintenance. At present, the entire revenue from fines goes to the state budget.

The new draft also allows government inspectors access inside the headquarters and of transport firms and even their vehicles.

OK, so it seems that the constructor says that Timisoara-Arad motorway (33 km) will be completed next year. Source

Nice ones nenea_hartia! Thanks a lot as usually for the excellent report!

+ big news for this month it seems:

Romania to hold tenders for 270 km of motorway

NOVEMBER 5, 2010 AT 6:12 PM

The Romanian Transport Ministry will organize a tender at the end of November to award construction contracts for four motorway sectors totaling 270 kilometers.

The construction of the four motorway sectors in central and western Romania will be financed through the Transport Sectoral Operational Program financed by the EU.

The four motorway sectors, namely Nadlac-Arad, Orastie-Sibiu, Timisoara-Lugoj and Lugoj-Deva, are part of the Pan-European Corridor IV.

“In February-March 2011 we will have the contracts signed,” Transport Minister Anca Boagiu said Friday during a visit to the new terminal of the International Airport Henri Coanda in Otopeni, near capital Bucharest

It's a miracle!
