We visited Bucuresti, Sinaia, Brasov and Sighisoara, really nice places, and we traversed anything from motorways (or, rather, a motorway...) to rocky (really!) local roads where I thought 15 kph would shake the rented Mondeo to bits. In between, basically everything. Possibly the craziest section was from Bran Castle to Curtea de Arges: Partly an E road which even Norweigan road engineers would be ashamed of, partly an insane concrete road (the 73C) with an up to 50 cm height difference between the two lanes. In one place, about 15 metres of the road was simply missing - there was only a big dirt hole. We were considering turning back until a brand new BMW 7-series blasted across the missing section, doing about 60 kph. Then, we dared to creep across very slowly. In short, a splendid trip, and driver mentality was not as insane as expected.
a2 motorway is finished till cernavoda, aprox 150kms from bucharest.the section from cernavoda to constanta and constanta bypass will be soon u/c and hopefully till end 2010 a2 will be fully functional.

no hurry, arad-nadlac section won't finish until 2012however arad-timisoara section is quite useless without nadlac-arad and timisoara-lugoj-deva sections, because dn7 is a much shorter route and nobody travelling from bucharest to nadlac will like to choose a 50kms longer route just to drive on 50kms of motorway.until they finish whole motorway deva-nadlac, arad-timisoara will be used mainly by people travelling from timisoara to arad and viceversa.

today there are parliamentary elections in romania and i'm very curious to see how the newly elected government will deal with the problem of building the needed motorways.each party promised at least 1000kms of new motorways to be open between 2009-2012.it seems very unrealistic to me.

Construction of motorways in Romania and Poland is proceeding horribly slowly.

I think if Romania can finish the A1 (Pitesti-Nadlac), A2 (Cernavoda-Constanta) and A3 (Bucuresti-Bors) and start the A4(?) (Bucuresti towards Northeast like Iasi) and A5(?) between the A3 and MD border until 2013, you can be satisfied. This is a lot of work to do.

wow...we will be very satisfied to have these motorways until 2013, or even 2015.
