Let's hope that they will complete them in 3 weeks as they promised

Indeed, in some places the median is paved. On those sections there are 2 transversal slopes of 2.5% each on each carriage way to the exterior of the motorway. On the section where is not paved over there is a unique slope because of a left curve that the motorway is taking. Water from one carriageway will be colected by the median drainage system.

A Romanian user made a map of the possible motorway network at the beginning of 2014 (over 900 km), when another EU financing cycle begins, based on current contracts and works:



Next year works on Bacau motorway by-pass will start which means motorway construction is starting going east too, with CIX in cards.

First highway to be built in Moldova starts at Bacau bypass!
Good news, as Moldova region was always last on investments.

Yes, Eastern Romania was out of immediate plans until now, but C IX becomes a focus after contracting most of the CIV. Probably next year we'll see some tenders there, posibly on Ploiesti-Focsani section.

They already have great roads in the Moldova region, all of the E-roads there are wide, most are 2 lane highways.

Why would Ploiești-Focșani Motorway be a priority when they have this:

Excellent wide road, it's almost like driving on a motorway (except for the motorway part).

The priority of building motorways towards the West is the perfect strategy.

Btw, I find that Transylvania motorway, going all the way from the N border to W border, much more important than a motorway going from Bucharest to the NE.

I see you don't understand the motorway building rationale. TM doesn't impede CIX and viceversa. They fall under different programs, financing agreements etc.

No. I'm saying there's a grater need for motorways towards the West (where roads are already congested) rather than building motorways in Moldova, where the actual infrastructure is quite good anyway. It's just an opinion based on facts, dunno (and don't care) how wrong or right it is from a technical point of view.

In other words, perfect as they planned it so far. Since you said they fall under different programs, financing agreements etc. I guess the ones going to the West have absolute priority.

With no center-divide and left turns on same level, crossing the opposite direction, it's far away from being safe, not mentioning passing through towns and villages instead of bypasses and belt-ways... The difference from motorway is big...

It would be better if DN2 was transformed into a safer 2+1 road instead of the current layout which is de-facto 1x4 and unsafe.

The idea is to take DN2 out of the cities by building motorway by-passes on its route (see Bacau motorway by-pass which will be contracted next year according to the ministerial counsellor also a member of the RO SSC forum). So, first there will be bypasses for cities on DN2 path, and in the end, these by-passes will be connected with motorway sections.

CIX is a primary EU priority and is funded 95% while TM is a secondary EU priority and funded (only in part) at 30-40% at most. TM will remain a priority for the RO Gov and will be steadily completed in the coming 7 years. In the meanwhile, CIX will probably get built faster because it almost entirely funded by the EU.

Usually, that's what I understand too by mentioning it was a good..highway. It's a road, but a good one compared to the actual DN's that are going to the West. They're not as wide, and pass through even more villages.

it's funny how you only need to paint the sides of the bridge with black and yellow and BAM, it looks like India! nothing against India but I just hate it when they're like "mhm, yeah, looks nice... what can we do to ruin it? oh, I know! let's paint it!"
