Better sooner than later! Those motorways are vital to improve travel times and winter reliability in the Carpathian Mountains.

One big step to the Moon, but there are many other steps until we can see works on any of the segments. Let's see what the Chinese have to say anyway.

^ Probably nothing. I believe we're talking about another political soap balloon.
And about A3, I very like that title Transport Ministry not adverse to Bechtel's financing some highway segments . Wow! the public says, "look, Bechtel already made the offer and the Ministry is not adverse of the idea!! Great!!" But of course, they didn't, 'cause they are very happy with their present contract with the Romanian state.

It's a diplomatic rewording of the fact that the Gov discussed with Bechtel the possibility of financing the works, of course.

Quick question: Is it correct that they use SNV Regular as the font for Romanian signage?

Hi everybody! Long time no talk here. Seems the Chinese are coming with 2 state companies to Romania after the invitation by the PM to invest in PPPs. First announced points of interest are Pitesti-Sibiu and Bucharest inner motorway (the ring inside the actual ring, i.e. not A0, which is going to be outside the current ring). For the second project, the announced investment is close to EUR 1 billion.

I like your optimism...

just let me tell you that Chinese guys seem to be running late with one A2 stretch in Poland. although I do think Chinese people are well skilled (and rich). they are still not enough experienced with buliding motorways in Europe. they do it fine in China, but this is different story.

I am very happy to see that two of the main sections are actually spited in sub-sections not longer the 25 km. In this way, maybe the companies which will build the highway could probably manage there time, people and funds much better.

Hope to see the highway ready soon!

Safe drive to everyone!

A price of an average of EUR 6 million/km is not bad at all. Let's see who will be the winners.

Other sections from C IV will be opened today.

22 km from Sibiu-Pitesti highway to be built with European money

When "Transport" Operational Programme was established by the EU Commission, there were set also the projects be completed. They concerned motorway sections on Corridor IV, some sectors of the railway network to increased capacity to 160 km per hour, plus a few belts and work like small railways stations, culverts and bridges.

"This funding priority is Corridor IV, but these projects are not restrictive. The 4.5 billion euros can go on other projects on Corridor IV", said Serban Cucu, Director General of Management Authority Sectoral Operational Programme "Transport".

The last tenders for the rehabilitation of national roads the documentation was made better and the surprise was that prices were much lower.

"With the money left, we have agreed with the Commission on other projects. Some belts as a priority as well as the 22 km motorway from Sibiu to Pitesti. "

Hopefully, this month, when the Chinese companies will come to Romania, they will sign for the rest of the Sibiu-Pitesti stretch.

I agree, but even if there is some delay, you still have a contract and financing for the stretch with the Chinese, while otherwise there would be no work there, right?

Could you, please, next time add where the companies are from? I think other users might be interested in this also.
