By the way, I noticed that most rest areas on A2 are only accessible via the shoulder, not via a regular deceleration lane. Why is that?

On this video I counted 5 (five) crossings, between min 4:18-5:11. Is it the video outdated? I'm asking seriously, it's been awhile since I drove the last time there.
But you know, it's not the number, but the principle to not put pedestrian crossings on such a road.

This is indeed weird. I guess it's because of lack of money.

Maybe because of failure to properly mark the road. This is common in Romania.

I am arriving in Otopeni on thursday and looking forward to yet another beautiful holiday in your wonderful country. It would be nice, if We could borrow your beautiful summer up here in the cold and rainy Denmark.
I agree 100% with you. Beatiful country full of wonderful people. I just spent 2 marevellous weeks holidays in Rumania. Bucharest, Carpatos and Mamaia. Shame I could not inaugurate the new section of Sunny Highway. It was 2 years since the last time and I have been amazed by the new stuff:
-lipscani area
-new airport terminal
-new library building
-basarab podul
-new mall
-new stadium
The low point was the situation of the casino building in Constanta.

As I said on the Romanian section, A3 will be 3+3 on Centura Bucuresti - Moara Vlasiei and 2+2 on Moara Vlasiei - Ploiesti.

IMO it should have been 3+3 from Bucharest to Barcanesti (where A? will begin towards Moldova).

A small correction. "A something" will start from Dumbrava.

Nope, it's ZTE.

Huawai has already a few plants in Romania. Panda Electronics will open its largest plant in Europe for electronics north of Bucharest with a EUR 140 mil investment. ZTE is the largest Chinese electronics plant and announced it will open a plant in Romania, making the country its production base in Europe. ZTE is "accidentally" managed by a Romanian guy from China.

Chinese ZTE company to open training centre in Romania this year, open a major production investment in IT&C
Thursday, 11 August 2011 13:36

Chinese ZTE communications company is considering opening a training centre in Romania that offers technical and telecommunications courses, in the period immediately ahead, and also a production line for telecommunications equipment, ZTE Romania Operation and Strategy Manager Lorian Vintila said on Thursday.

'There are very big chances as on January 16 we started a conversation with Communications Minister Valerian Vreme. We are currently analysing the project and I believe we will start the project this November or December, at the latest,' said Vintila.

He said investment in the training centre is put at 2.7 million euros in a first stage that will grow to 55 million euros in 2012 and continue to expand further on.

The investment money will come from the Chinese Government, as ZTE is owned by the Chinese Government, Vintila added.

Some 200 students will be trained at the centre in Bucharest, then the project will be expanded to include other university centres of Romania.

About the intentions of the ZTE to open a production line in Romania, Vintila said this will be established in an undeveloped area of the country.

Romanian Economy Minister Ion Ariton on Thursday visited the production line of ZTE in Shenzhen, accompanied by ZTE Chairman Tai Fen Zhang.

Ariton said the results of the Romanian manager at ZTE encourages the Romanian Government to seek private management for the enterprises owned by the Romanian Government.

'When you see some wonderful things, words become useless. I congratulate our colleague and we should be proud that he is a Romanian; the company he is coordinating is a good thing deserving praise, and that encourages us in the project we want to implement in Romania, the project of private management for Government-owned enterprises,' said Ariton.

According to ZTE officials, the company is employing nearly 86,000 staff.

The Development Ministry announced a few days ago it will invest to renovate it. The news comes kind of late, but it's still good it comes at last.

I think they lacked the necessary moneys to make it 2x3 to the future interchange with A5. But it will be expanded to 2x3 on that section in the future once they start building A5 (starting 2013-2014 with EU funds, as it's on C IX).

I don't know more than 1 crossing so that's what I am reporting. In any case, I don't remember to have been once forced to stop at the crossing to allow pedestrians to cross. I think it's really stupid they plan crossings on the ring as I frankly don't see people walking around there.

There are 4 of them placed on Soseaua Odaii (from DN1 to DN1A). The bad news is that for each of it there is a speed limit of 30 km/h.

You mean at the intersection of Soseaua Odai and the Ring? From the map of Soseaua Odai, I see only one intersection with the Ring, but I frankly don't remember the crossing there.
