The last pictures LeClerk re-posted are NOT from Orastie-Sibiu, they are from Deva-Orastie.

Le Clerk, don't take this personally, I usually enjoy your posts (except for the overly-optimistic ones), but you're seriously dissinforming people. You should pay more attention to what you're writting, as this is an international topic...

First of all, those pictures of the motorway contruction works are from Deva-Orastie, NOT Orastie-Sibiu, where works haven even broken ground yet. They're still in designing phase.

Second, Sos Odaii is the URBAN SECTION of the Bucharest Ring. That's why there are so many pedestrian crossings (at least 5 of them), there is also a bus line (line 304) serving the area, with bus-stops on the first lane, near the respective crossings. As far as I know there used to be a 70 km/h speed limit on the road, because of it being inside the city-limits. I never did see that speed-limit implemented after the widening, which boggles me, as the 30 km/h limit for the pedestrian crossings applies only to city roads .

And the third and last point I wanted to make, as far as I remember the 2x3 Bucuresti-Ploiesti motorway was something the goverment added AFTER the two contracts were awarded. So they realised their mistake too late for them to change anything . Somehow they did manage to legally modify the contract for the Bucuresti-Moara Vlasiei section, but sadly, not for the other section, as it would have increased the value of that contract by over 50%, which is illegal. IMO this will be done after they start construction of the future Moldova Motorway, who knows when. All the works being done under traffic, of course ...

The pictures are from Geoagiu, which is on the Orastie-Sibiu section of motorway, or isn't it? Maybe I am wrong, but I thought Geoagiu was on the section from Orastie to Sibiu.

I frankly drove on that section yesterday and don't remember crossings. More, I never saw one person walking or crossing that section of Ring.

I thought the initial feasibility study showed the need for a 2x2 motorway. So, it's not a Government decision, but a FS indication. I do not know whether they took at that time into account A5 to Focsani or the accelerated growth of traffic in Romania over a certain time span.

Geoagiu/Gelmar is the end of the Deva-Orastie segment. The Orastie interchange will be built there.

OK. I trust your word on that. I knew otherwise. Is there a map with that section of Deva-Orastie? BTW: at Geoagiu there is an exit planned AFAIK.

At Geoagiu there is an INTERCHANGE, not a simple exit. It's the Orastie interchange, as you can see.

Hi guys! As already mentioned on another thread, I just took a crazy 4,500 km road-trip in Central and Eastern Europe (HU, AU, IT, SLO, HR, MNT, SRB, B-H) and hope to have the time and patience to share some pics.

Meanwhile:

Transylvania Highway requires EUR 1.3 bln loan
AUGUST 25TH, 2011 AT 9:00 PM

Because the contract with Bechtel was cancelled, approximately 300 kilometers of highway have been left without a constructor. The National Highways and Roads Company (CNADNR) is considering several options in order to complete them, evz.ro informs. The options include tapping state budget funds, contracting a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB) or leasing several highway sections.

The solution for the 48.4-kilometer Brasov-Fagaras section would be to connect it with the Comarnic-Brasov Highway and to start the leasing procedures early next year, CNADNR General Manager Daniela Draghia stated.

A tender for the Gilau-Mihaesti and Targu Mures – Campia Turzii sections of the Transylvania Highway will start this year. A total of 60 kilometers will be financed from the budget, at a maximum cost of approximately EUR 7.2 M per kilometer.

“What is left from the contract with Bechtel is the completion of two sections: the well-known 2B section (Campia Turzii – Gilau), whose construction started in 2004, and the 3C section (Suplacu de Barcau – Bors). The construction works left were negotiated at EUR 6.8 M per kilometer. EUR 1 M in costs for the construction equipment that sits idle, plus other costs, were eliminated” Daniela Draghia added.

CNADNR plans to build the remaining 190 kilometers by contracting a loan from EIB. The figures show that Romania will have to borrow EUR 1.3 bln at most.
