@ Kronos KBC: thank you for the vids.

Regarding first video, I wonder which solution will chose the motorway's designer to cross the wetlands near river Mureş, approximately between minutes 6:33-6:37.

I know, but it was quite a time ago...And then many Romanian forumers said it would not happen in many years. And a feasibility study isn't quite sure that will happen. Many feasibility studies are made just to see that it is too expensive etc. That's why I asked here for any NEW plans Because, during the current economical crisis, like Bulgarian government also does, some plans are diminished from motorways or expressways or just road rehabilitation. Which is much more realistic in short-term.

The feasibility study was launched this year, so this is the newest thing about this C IV (south branch). But you are right: the feasibility study doesn't mean anything will get building. The feasibility study for the Romanian section of C IX was completed a few years already but nothing is planned there for now.

IMO, all (Gov and EU) resources will be allocated to the completion of C IV (north branch) before any other major project gets started, except for those projects which will be funded by partners, such as these projects attempted with Chinese investors.

Romania To Sign EUR 0.5 Billion New EU Financing Contracts For Infrastructure Projects By End-Nov

The Romanian Transport Ministry will sign by the end of November European financing contracts worth EUR500 million for road infrastructure investments, Transport Minister Anca Boagiu said Saturday.

Boagiu said construction works on 434 kilometers of highway on the Pan-European Corridor IV are currently in progress. She added that works on four other highway sections will start soon.

Romania has so far signed European financing contracts worth EUR725 million for infrastructure projects and will raise the total value of contracts to EUR1.25 billion by the end of November, said the minister.

On Saturday, Boagiu inspected upgrade works on national road 24, which links Barlad to Albita in eastern Romania. The 279 million lei (about EUR65 million) project is 68% financed with non-reimbursable EU funds.

Romanian Government is lobying for the inclusion of the South-North motorway in the TEN-T AGreement to be financed by the UE:

Autostrada sud-nord, un nou proiect in analiza. Care va fi traseul acesteia

Why doesn't that serve Botosani, like how the A1 serves Timisoara? It's not like it's that much out of the way. OK, Botosani is smaller than Timisoara, but it is bigger than Suceava, and the DN2 is a decent enough road, so it could simply serve Botosani instead of Suceava if it's too much of a dogleg to serve both. Or even having both cities 20km away, rather than 0km and 40km - if there's a decent link road between the two.

Can anyone tell me why Galati and Brailia aren't on any motorway plans? two cities, very close together, giving a total met area of about 600k, and yet no motorway to them - at least Iasi gets the E-W motorway.

A spur link might be a good idea then.

They're a bit tricky, close to the Moldovan and Ukrainian borders. Even so, I'd imagine that a Sibiu-Brasov-Focsani-Galati routing would be viable (isn't the A1 supposed to turn south at Sibiu?) as would a Calarasi-Slobozia-Braila-Galati routing.

A trick, then, would be getting such an E-W link across the marshy, wide, and (IIRC) protected lower Danube to Tulcea and maybe Suina. And from these jumping-off points, a motorway to Odessa would likewise be viable.

That is a probable route. It's not an official route. You are right, Botosani should also be caught under this route.

None yet, except expressway plans to link them to C IX.

It's not financially feasible because it crosses the mountains and would cost a huge amount of money.

A bridge is included in the EU Danube Strategy in the Lower Danube, and the feasibility study for that has just been completed (with the local authorities looking for financing, a possible source being the Chinese Gov):

Podul de 120 mil. euro de la Brăila are studiu de fezabilitate, dar finanţare încă zero

inca o poza si gata:



But there will be no motorway-bridge connection on the other side. At least there is no plan for that for now, although I assume there will be one once the bridge is in place. And a Constanta-Odessa motorway is impossible (environment-wise) due to the Delta it should cross through.

Probably the route will go through Siret river valley, which lies between Suceava and Botosani. However nothing is yet decided.

For those travelling in Romania:

Quote:
Winter tyres, mandatory as from today for cars travelling on icy or snowy roads
Tuesday, 01 November 2011 09:05


Government Ordinance 5/2011, under which motor vehicles are mandated to be fitted with winter tyres when the temperature goes below 7 degrees Celsius or the road is covered in snow, ice or ground frost, comes into effect today, November 1.

The winter tyres will observe the provisions for homologation laid out in Directive 92/23/EEC of the European Council of March 31, 1992 relating to tyres for motor vehicles and their trailers and to their fittings, Regulation 30 of the UN Economic Commission for Europe concerning pneumatic tyres for motor vehicles and their trailers and Regulation 54 of the UN Economic Commission for Europe regarding pneumatic tyres for commercial vehicles.

Under Ordinance 5/2011, winter tyres are mandatory between November 1 and March 1. Drivers of motor vehicles travelling on public roads covered in snow, ice or ground frost without the winter tyres fitted on are liable to fines of up to RON 4,000 (930 euros) and to having the vehicle's papers withheld. If such vehicle causes a road accident, adding up to the fine will be an amount to cover the road repairing works and damages.

How many lanes did it conclude the bridge should have?

The article is wrong. The estimate puts the price at EUR 300 million.

After approving Transylvania Motorway in TEN-T financing scheme, the European Commission accepted to include Tg Mures-Iasi motorway in TEN-T financing scheme.



The new transportation minister! Chapeau!

Source in Romanian

If one looks at TEN-T recently appproved sections of Transylvania Motorway and Tg.Mures-Iasi motorways, they are just a continuation of the same west-east motorway which ends up in Chisinau and further in Odessa.

I read the last 5 pages of this thread but couldn't look for what I was looking for :
When can we expect Bucharest to be linked to the rest of Europe, by highway only ?
I guess it would be through the A3 to the Hungarian border, right ?
So, in your opinion, when should we expect a Budapest-Bucharest highway ?
