Keep in mind that in the 5 months between signing of contract and the groundbreaking there was also a winter break. I think construction could commence within a month after signing the contract.

I would agree but why they didnt start in early march instead of April? The weather was perfect in March.

Promises of Berceanu in 2009: 836 km of new highways until 2012 - http://www.bloombiz.ro/business/berc...ectata_1453241

Achievements 2008 - begin of 2011:
A1 - Sibiu bypass 17 km
A2 - 0 km
A3 - Campia Turzii - Gilau 52km (Bucharest - Ploiesti highway was stopped, Transylvania highway is also stopped and being renegociated)
-------------------
total 69 km

Hopefully at the end of 2011:

A1 - Arad - Timisoara 44 km
A2 - 30 km (Medgidia - Constanta) + Constanta bypass (20 km) (Cernavoda - Medgidia segment was stopped)
A3 - 0km
--------
total 94 km

Total 2008 - end of 2011 = 163 km

2012?

seriously,

40-45 km a year does not sound bad.

BTW, a year ago I was exchanging thoughts with Le Clerk about Romanian motorway programme. that time this figure was my "forecast". as written above this is a good score. look at Italy - it does not do it better (in terms of new motorways).

anyway I hope I will not harm anybody with my next sentence: until Romania will not reach the Germany's wellness level it is quite tricky to expect more new motorways than 50 km anually, no matter what politicans/other wizards say.

Your list is optimistic, but those are the deadlines. I'd say that if we get 30-40 km this year, we are lucky.

For 2012, Cernavoda-Medgidia (20 km) and Bucharest-Ploiesti (60 km) are also feasible (+ maybe another section of 10-20 km Transilvania motorway).

In 2013 (and 2014) BTW - post election years, there should be an explosion of about 200 km on A1.

The big problem is the money indeed. If we get some PPPs signed, we'll probably see a doubling of the current construction speed. This year is crucial in this regard.

A few more shots, aerial, of A3 north of Bucharest, the 2x3 section:

How will A3 be connected to Centura Bucharesti?
A roundabout or 2-level interchange?
And will it continue over this ringroad to downtown Bucharesti?
Does anybody have a card of this?

It should be a cloverleaf with the current ring-road.

A3 will continue into Bucharest proper for a few km (5 to be precise).

Here's a map:

Hmm.

40 km per year sounds good for Slovenia (2 milion inhabitants, 600 km highways).
Bulgaria - 8 milion inhabitants, 450 km.
For Romania (22 milion inhabitants, 314 km highways) - sounds bad.

Hmm it seems like a very difficult and costly job to connect Centura Bucharest with A3 through a cloverleaf. They would have to make a new route for the railway just next to Centura Bucharest. Have works started and will A3 be connected to downtown Bucharest instantly or first at a later stage?
Do You have a detailed map for A3 between Centura Buch. and downtown?

From that map it seems it will take longer to go to Ploiesti from Bucharest on the A3 than it will on the DN1. DN1 seems more straight and direct...

Longer but probably faster. Plus, you can see in orange, in the upper right of the map, a stretch of the future (let's hope so!) motorway to Moldova. That's why they made that strange curve near Dumbrava, since in the (distant) future there will be an interchange there.

On the other hand, some pics made on the recently opened site for the construction of Deva-Orăştie motorway:

Look at it 2004 election year!

On the other hand, 2008 was also election year.

I bet the bridge itself won't be completed in August.
