Since July 2007 if I'm not mistaken. It's a 2x2 lane expressway and in the near future it will be linked with Bucharest beltways.

@radi : I have no ideea about the actual condition of the road but as you can see below, a motorway is planned (black dotted line)to connect Timisoara - Lugoj-Calafat and Vidin using the future bridge over Danube. Still we have to wait for it until 2012~2015

NO, I don´t understand at all and I don´t mean to offend, but if you are so direct, what is worse here? Roads are very important for transit traffic and Bulgaria has better roads.

I´ve been told that the transit people going to Vidin border from Hungary don´t pass Bucharest.

I'd think people use Serbia because of its north-south motorway,while in Romania,there's an east-west one,which does not exactly correspond to their destination's orientation...

First of all, the road from bucharest to giurgiu in not an expressway. It is a plain dual carriageway road that looks very good because it is rather new. It is indeed a modern road, like the ones you would find in the west, with lots of roundabouts but clearly not an expressway. Romania does not have one km of expressway yet. Not even the new exit from Bucharest to Otopeni cannot be called an expressway. The sign of expressway (the little car on blue background) does not appear on any road.

Now, i can tell you that the main roads in romania are in a very very good condition considering the amount of truck traffic they sustain. Note that on one lane roads that pass through villages and small towns, you will never see this kind of traffic in any western country. It takes me about 7 hours from Bucharest to Nadlac (HU border). Yes, the roads are stupid and the motorways are there to dream upon But that is another story.

This is indeed a well sustained (based on present day reality) and a well written post.

7 hours for 600 km is not that bad.

I don't know what is your understanding regarding the term expressway but for me expressway is lower then term highway not to mention motorway.
To give another example [bE85[/b] Bucharest - Buzau -Bacau - Roman is an expressway (drum expres).

No it's not; an expressway neither has at-grade intersections nor crosses through villages.

No it cannot! The wikipedia link defines expressway on a global scale. We are talking about the definition as stated in romanian and european driving laws. So, to put it into short words, an expressway is a "small" motorway. NO at grades and no villages. More acute angles in curves and slopes, a driving speed at maximum 100km/h (in RO) and so on... Check out the slovenian thread, or the polish one. You will find pictures of expressways there.
