What about the other motorway bridge near Constanta over the Danube-Black Sea Canal? Any updates? It should be completed by now.

That is fast... Are there any recent construction pics? With a late July opening, the motorway must be almost completely finished...

Chris, don't mind LeClerk. Or our t. minister...
And it will be half profile and only from A2-A4 interchange until Agigea, IF they will manage to do it, which I highly doubt it.

You can see my pics from A4 Constanta bypass from MAY 27th somewhere here and here. Just make your own judgements on that.

Chris, look, it's our job as Romanians to be pessimistic. But for some (grounded) reasons, I trust this ministress. She delivered so far on most of her promises so I will give her credit on this one. Let's watch the news.

PS: the sections she is talking about are mostly completed in structural works, even though we don't have many pictures from there.

Here are the pictures:

It seems highly unlikely to me that this would even be finished half-profile in just over one month.

She is talking about a section of A4 (the south one) and a section of A2, not the entire A4 (which is indeed 21 km long).

This is how the 21 km sections looks like:

based only on pictures I must say in Poland we need another year to finish it. Romania must have another schema.

I know what she's talking about, I'm not a moron. I give up, you just seem to believe everything she says some some strange reason.

We have gone through similar things when she said she would open Sibiu motorway by-pass by a certain deadline.

From the pictures, I'd say the major problem they will have in order to complete in time are the bridges and the main interchange.

No, we didn't. Read my old posts. Since I was the main contributor with pictures, I was asked several times if it is realistic to believe that the bypass could be opened and I said yes, because it was realistic. But now the pictures says otherwise. I won't insist, since I don't know the situation in Constanţa.
But this politicking manner to open stretches which are not ready yet it's not ok with me. Don't forget, Sibiu bypass is not finished yet, 7 months after its opening. They are still working under traffic and last week I had to stay half an hour at one bridge because of the works. It was a queue of lorries long of about 1km. And I won't comment further about the stupid intention to open some parts of Arad bypass by the end of this year.

Transfăgărășan (try to pronounce it ) - the road that was also on TopGear:



Transalpina (highest road in Romanian - partialy without asphalt but that will change soon):
