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.
Hmmm...

I see you are confusing the highway with a wider european road. E85+ E583 (Iasi-Bucuresti, except a 2 lines highway near Ramnicu Sarat) is wider (1 line of 3,5 meters + a narrow line of 1,5 m). Believe me, in Moldova Region the roads are in a very poor condition (except DN 2, DN 17 and some portions of national roads). The bypass sections are missing (except Tecuci).

i drove through Romania this summer and the worst roads seemedto be in Bucovina (ex pasul Prislop-Vatra Dornei) but what confused me in Moldova was the road Iasi-Roman cause I had no idea if it 2x2 or 1x1, what`s the status of that wide emergency lane?

That's an enigma for most of us...

My remark about building highways in Moldova region was a remark about being fair when allocating money from the national budget to every region.
Of course I agree that highways connecting Bucharest to the Western Europe are a national priority, but we are now 21 years after falling of communism and no highway has been built in Moldova.

It is enough!

I will not drive soon on these Moldovan highways as I am from southern Romania.

That emergency lane was made for emergency stops. But everyone is using it as a second lane for traffic. Honestly I made some projects on this road and never understood it's purpose. One of my colleagues telling me that the lane is for emergency surpasses because on this road there are a lot of trucks that don't give you the right to pass through.

OMG that`s weird! after some discussion with my co-driver we decided to drive on normal, internal lane and we passed on the emergency one just when sb wanted to overtake us, but there were situations when 4 cars had to find place on that width and it was quite stressful

I think the purpose of that shoulder is to provide space for slower vehicles (such as agricultural vehicles, but also trucks and slowmas) to drive on the side so faster traffic can pass relatively safely. However, what you often see is that people try to pass in both directions at the same time, the road is not really wide enough for that, as the shoulder is not at full lane width.

Some parts of Sibiu - Sebes section of DN1/7 are the same. I drove there my first time ever in Romania and it was quite annoying. There was heavy traffic and everyone was driving like it was a motorway. There were long cues of trucks on the emergency lane and even trucks overtaking other trucks on the normal lane and cars overtaking trucks on the opposite lane...

All the way to Arad was foggy...





Mounting the shiny crash barierrs:



In partea dreapta va fi spatiul de servicii de pe autostrada. Banuiesc ca va fi deschis mai tarziu, nu pe 15 Decembrie (si pe M43 in Ungaria spatiul de servicii nu a fost gata deoadata cu autostrada):





Arad - Timisoara railway overpass:



Comparison on Arad bypass where there was a building untill 2 weeks ago. This is how it looked on Tuesday:



And this is how it looks on Friday:

Apparently works on all CIV motorway sections started earlier this year are in advance of schedule, and contractors will work winter-long. Maybe they plan to open some of these sections before elections next year.

The Gov will tender the Bacau by-pass motorway next year (it's more of a motorway section because it's 31 km long):





Motorway network as of end-2013 (according to current plans):

Why is there Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej instead of Adjud Oneşti on that map?

edit: with the help of Wikipedia I understand now, but it's still a mistake

The construction time for the Bacău bypass is 30 months. So if it starts in mid-2012, it will certainly not be completed by the end of 2013. More like early-to-mid 2015.

Nice map, but what about Bucharest's ring-road? What are the current plans concerning its construction?

Yes, sorry, you're right. 30 months is with design.

Thanks for correction.

I remember there is a plan for the south motorway by-pass for a PPP to be tendered in the coming period, but nothing so far.

Otherwise, the rest of the current ring will enter works for expansion to 2x2 as soon as spring comes. The contracts have been signed.
