Indeed. Works are continuing (at a slow pace) as reported a couple of days ago by our colleague nenea_hartia from the site.

It seems they are concentrating on the art works (overpasses and viaducts):

Overpass over A3:
3) zona n care DJ101D va supratraversa autostrada. Pasajul e aproape gata:




Most probably, the Bucharest-Ploiesti section will be opened next year, although with sufficient money, it could be completed this year.

Why not? I thought the Transilvania motorway tender competition problems were only limited to the Oradea - Brasov section...

Technically, it's not part of C IV, yet it's part of C IX. In any case, all EU transportation funds earmarked for Romania have already been planned for the completion of C IV (which is a priority over C IX). There's no more EU money for the transportation sector in Romania*.

* Whatever EU money will be left from the good prices obtained at the recent tenders will still be directed to C IV (Sibiu-Pitesti section).

Well, I have to offer you all my mea culpa. This evening I've seen at the Romanian state television images showing bulldozers of JV Strabag & Straco removing soil somewhere near Turdaş, so it seems the works for Deva-Orăştie have really started.

Cool!

Am I right to guesstimate that CNADNR will announce the winers of the other A1 sections next week?

Lot 4 (16,1 km): Astaldi (IT) - Euroconstruct (RO) - AstalRom (RO)

A few Romanian companies there.

All in all, we'll have over 500 km of motorway U/C this year, most of it with EU money, and all to be delivered within the coming 2-3 years. That will also trigger a positive kick for the economy. Cement plants are already upgrading their production capacities along C IV. Now only if a deal or two could be pulled off with the Chinese for Comarnic-Brasov or Sibiu-Pitesti.

Leaving motorways aside for a bit, the EU Commission recently approved a EUR 126 million financing for the so-called Ford Road which will link the Ford plant in Craiova with Alexandria (pictured below in green). The road will leave from Fords factory gates, will be 127 km long, will be 2x2 on certain sections and 1.5x2 on other, will be made to bear special loads, and will have special parkings of large area for trucks coming from the plant. The works contracts were signed last month. The road will connect the Ford Plant with Bucharest's south ringroad and the future Bucharest Port and Bucharest-Danube canal (which also obtained EU financing under the Danube Strategy Programme).



Sorry guys, still in Paint until I learn to use Inkscape.

If I look the previous experience from Deva- Orastie section I have some doubts that works at the new C IV sections will be started before the end of 2011..

to review the schedule of Deva-Orastie:

1 september 2010 finally after months of contestations the tender is awarded by Strabag
8 november 2010 contract signed with Strabag
8 april 2011 works begin

so it took more then 7 months to start the works from the tender award. No mention the fact that on the 1 september 2010 all contestations were closed

If we consider the mid April 2011 the term when we shall find out the tender winners means that we can expect to start the works somewhere in mid november but only if none will challenge the results..

You should keep in mind that works can hardly be performed in winter, and this winter has been one of the longest in Romania. So, after November comes December etc. We had snow these days in the area and temperatures may still drop below 0.

But if they award the contracts this month or the coming one, they'll surely start immediately after the contract is signed and expropriations performed (probably they have already been made). Most of the companies have already the plant and workers in Romania, some even close to these future sites on CIV, left from other projects.

You must remember we're talking about a design & build type of contract. So first, starting from the feasibility study, they need to create the technical design+details of execution, then to obtain all permits (especially the building permit) and only then to start building. This usually takes at least 6 months.

Well, in fact it has nothing to do with Aktor, but with all the Greek companies that had contracts in Romania: Prodeftiki, Pantechniki, Efklidis, you name it. All of them have done a sloppy job or simply abandoned the works unfinished and left to Greece. Luckily, Aktor is not that type of company and we hope it will do a great job in Romania.

You are right. I forgot about all those issues.

That and the Vinci/Aktor JV who pulled out of the Comarnic-Brasov PPP for failing to get the required financing. Aktor being majority Greek state owned, it was a real burden for the JV when it sought financing from the banks, right in the middle of Greek sovereign debt crisis.

Romanian Highways Company cancels contract with Colas for Constanta – Medgidia highway segment
APRIL 11, 2011 AT 12:57 PM

Romania’s National Highways Company (CNADNR) has notified French construction company Colas it will cease the contract to design and build the Cernavoda – Medgidia highway segment and has started procedures for a new bid. It estimates it will revise the project and prepare the documents for the new bid within a month.

The National Highways Company has decided to start a new bid after Colas repeatedly refused to continue works on various reasons, according to CNADNR. Colas hasn’t finalized the design for 14 kilometers of the planned 20.3 kilometers and has failed to get the required paperwork, including the construction authorization. However, Colas has asked for an increase in cost and for a deadline expansion with 24 months.

Romania’s transport ministry Anca Boagiu has previously said Colas had asked for an extra EUR 8 million for works on the Cernavoda- Medgidia segment, but the ministry has refused to allot it. Boagiu had promised that segments of the Constanta – Cernavoda highway will become functional this summer.

No, the title is wrong, it's about the Cernavoda-Medgidia section in red:



They bumped into a whole array of Roman historic sites, including into Hadrian's wall and some Roman era villages. They have to change the whole section route on the entire lenght. It's a big mess!
