Google translate makes some funny translations. Are these proper translations?

Targu Mures => Sheffield
Lugoj => Pietermaritzburg
Baia Mare => Birmingham
Turda => Athens
Pitesti => Nottingham
Bistrita => Bolton
Suceava => Stockport

These translations are completely stupid.

Though a motorway Turda - Athens would be really great, as well as Lugoj - Pietermaritzburg and Baia Mare - Birmingham -> they got to build a road tunnel under the Channel for that though

I registered also.


In general romanian roads have gotten better since 2004, between 1993 and 2004 the roads here were like after bombing and not very wide.

I live in south-west of Romania and here the European roads are modernized and in good shape, the rest are just in drivable condition and not modernized, hopefully the express road Craiova-Pitesti will begin construction shortly.

The politicians made promise to Ford which will upgrade a existing automobile plant in Craiova, that they will have clear road to the Black Sea port of Constanta and that means they need to build that express road fast.

As for highways I don't see major improvements, we have the same politicians no matter which party is in power so until the communist generation of politicians gets replaced with capitalist I don't see how things will improve too much.

Nah, I never understood the phobia against non-divided highways. Okay, they're a little less safe, but many countries don't use them, like the United States and Germany.

Construction of a divider shouldn't be too much problems though. Quite some Romanian roads are like this. The E60 (DN1) will be replaced by the A1 and A3 anyway.

Isn't this separating barrier caused just by dangerous curve?

The Transportation Minister said that no km of Transilvania Motorway will open in 2009. So no Cluj sector this year.

Great pictures, thanks for posting. I noticed you took the DN10, it is said to be one of the most beautiful roads in Romania, and that might be true.

But the North may be very beautiful too, but I haven't seen much pictures from there yet.

I don´t feel save on non divided highways, in Bulgaria and Romania idiots regularly use the 3rd lane to overtake and not that I do but I see how they almost crash with other vehicles and other vehicles have to slow down because of them, and that takes place every 10 minutes at least on such roads in Bulgaria at least.
