3. Constanta by-pass, A4, (22 km) -> don't know exactly but also more than 50% completed - opening questionable (reports the works were accelerated)

4. Timisoara-Arad (32 km), part of A1, -> more than 60% completed - opening questionable (reports the works were accelerated)

In total exactly 110 km TBO this year!



Next year's planned openings:

1. Cernavoda - Medgidia, part of A1, (19 km).

2. Medgidia - Constanta, part of A1, (32 km).

3. Inner Bucharest section of A3 (7 km at 2x3).

4. Arad by-pass, part of A1, (13 km).

In total: 71 km in 2012.

Those who will not open this year, will open for sure in 2012, and the 2012 completion projects are almost certain.

In 2013 and 2014 there should be again at least 100 km openings per year, according to the signed or to be signed agreements.
+ A1 Simeria - Orastie to be completed in August 2012 (part of A1 Deva - Orastie section - Strabag).

Oh, I forgot that lot. They are already on the site there, aren't they? But is the contract stipulating 12 months execution?

Yes, Strabag is already on the construction site (and I might have some pictures from there in the folowing days). I know that Deva - Orastie section is made of 2 sub-sections: Deva - Simeria (completion: 2013 - mostly because of a 700 m long Mures bridge) and Simeria - Orastie (completion August 2012, as the contract says).

Except for Cernavoda-Medgidia, whose contract was cancelled earlier this year. BTW: The Ministry of Transportation announced yesterday the tender procedure for this segment is launched (as promised - our new minister keeps up with promises). It should be ready by end next year not by next summer.

It's interesting the Ministry started requiring 1-year execution contracts for some sections (instead of 2), such as this one and the Simeria-Orastie section (already signed).

So finally they decided to cancel the inner section (6.5 km) due to the land costs? The access to A3 will be done only from the Bucharest belt?

No, they will also build the city section. They say it will be ready by the end of 2012, but I seariously doubt it.

I think the Ministry said in one statement that the inner-Bucharest section needs to be completed by end next year.

BTW: our woman transportation minister is playing the bitch role latelly

Quote:
We can offer business class tickets for those foreign companies failing to deliver according to contract

Transport Minister Anca Boagiu sent a message to all foreign companies dealing in construction and that fail to deliver on term infrastructure works. They should be ready to head back to their country, she said, and added there is a new terminal ready and business class tickets can be provided, according to Mediafax. Boagiu warned in a press conference “the mess with all these road and railway construction deals must stop once and for all in Romania.”

"Through the new contracts all the contractors are forced to respect their execution term, with six intermediary terms. Failing to respect brings a 500,000 euro fine and per each day , there is 0.1 percent penalty from the contract value. The moment a value of 15 percent of the contract is reached, the contract is killed. I know this is not a pleasant thing; we have applied 40 million euro fines for companies executing Valea Prahovei railroad rehabilitation.” Boagiu said.

She also said she has invited foreign contractors to leave if they do not respect their terms. “Who doesn’t want to work in Romania, should know there is a new terminal finished, a nice one, it has the shape of a violin. We can offer them all the protocol services and offer them business class tickets to leave the country, of course, with the right penalties,” Boagiu also said. The minister also said she has greenlit local prefects to supervise road or railway construction works in their areas and intervene where there is need.

All segments on A1 and A2 are contracted now, bar for Pitesti-Sibiu:

Quote:
Five construction companies sign contracts for EUR 427 mln highway segments in Romania
JUNE 7, 2011 AT 3:40 PM

Construction companies Strabag, Straco Grup- Studio Corona and Astaldi – Astalrom have won the bids to design and built three segments of the Orastie Sibiu highway, according to Romania’s Transport and Infrastructure Ministry. The three contracts, worth a total of EUR 427.5 million, have recently been signed.

Strabag has won a EUR 166.6 million contract for the first segment of the highway, while the association Straco Grup – Studio Corona will be the beneficiary of the EUR 114.2 million contract for another segment of the same highway.

A third segment went to the association Astaldi – Astalrom, a contract woth EUR 146.6 million. All the contracts extend over 22 months, plus four years of guarantees. The financing is covered by the European Union, through the Cohesion Fund – 85 percent, with the remainder from the Romanian Government.

An insane period of motorway construction will happen in the coming years in Romania.

The bitchy ministress wants now Bechtel to work cheaper.

Quote:
CNADNR Asks Bechtel To Reduce Highway Construction Costs By 35%
today, 16:21 Autor: Ioana Tudor

Romanian roads authority CNADNR asked U.S. company Bechtel, which constructs the Brasov-Bors highway, to reduce work costs by about 35% and revise the construction schedule, as the 2013 deadline stated in the contract cannot be observed.

So all segments of A1 tendered in march were awarded and signed already?
In late april they signed the contract for 5 segments (out of 9) as for the rest of 4 i knew that some competitors challange the bid results..

Glad to find out the good news, they can start works in the second half of the year. What about the last 2 segments from Lugoj- Deva? Any news?
