The National Road Company issued a press release today stating that EU agreed to finance Sibiu-Pitesti motorway (116 km) at 85% the cost which is estimated at EUR 3 billion. So no more PPP for this section. Works will be tendered this fall.

That is good news! So the motorway will go through the Olt valley? That will be a pretty curvy stretch of road. And the stretch between Racovita and Curtea de Arges looks pretty mountainous as well. Are there a lot of tunnels and bridges planned?

Here is a sketch of the future motorway plan:

I heard that the terrain is better via Curtea de Arges, and that it's cheaper this way.

I saw the map in the link, but the Olt river and DN7 are not as straight as the line that is drawn on that map. I drove that road once, and did not think there was enough space for a motorway. I wonder if there are a lot of bridges and tunnels planned. It looks like this:

Can you please show me the press release? Cause it's not on CNADNR's website.

Look here. It's a statement coming from Daniela Draghia, director in CNADNR.

So the Pitesti Sibiu section of A1 is going to be build by EU Funds for this programe period (2007-2013)! It's great because this section is important also for North-Eastern Bulgaria.
If the tender is this fall what could be possible deadline for construction? Maybe 2015?

As I live in Pitesti, I confirm the DN7 Pitesti - Rm. Valcea is a hell, because it is goes over several hills. The rivers in this region are flowing North to South, while the road is going South East to Nort West. In the picture below you could also see where they built the railroad connecting Pitesti and Rm. Valcea, with a large detour:

The road Pitesti - Curtea de Arges - Racovita is better following the valleys of some rivers and is shorter.
As I already mentioned on some other threads:
- Pitesti - Curtea de Arges - Caineni (north of Racovita) was the road used in Middle Age to cross the mountains
- the level of Olt river has been elevated in the 80s when many hidro power plants have been built in this area. That's why there is no much place to build a highway near the river (without many tunnels), so they prefer the alternate route.

No, the EU funds for 2007-2013 for infrastructure are all committed to current contracts and there is no more available. However, it appears Sibiu-Pitesti was aproved by the EC for funding in 2014-2020 (while it was rejected for 2007-2013).

Construction is scheduled to last 3 years, so if works start next year, it should be ready by 2016. This means payments from the EC for completed works could come as early as 2014.

Well, I think we are overoptimistic. There will be a tender for updating the feasibility study and CNADNR claims they are now working at the tender book. From here to an effective start of works it is an intergalactic distance. Then, 116 km in very rough terrain will be probably splitted in at least 4 Lots, if no 5. The design phase and acquiring all permits for such a complex investment will take an year. Still, let's suppose the works will start indeed next year. From where will bring Romania the money to pay until EU will take over, after 2014? Assuming EU will pay indeed, which I'm not so sure. I want to see Mrs. Drăghia's statement. Or the press release. But still nothing on CNADNR's website, although this should be big news.
And something else: only three years to build it? C'mon!!

==========

In the meantime, some fresh updates regarding the bridge over river Mureş (length=720m), built by Strabag on Deva-Orăştie motorway, part of A1. Sorry, a very foggy day:

so it's official then.the sibiu -pitesti motorway will be built with EU money. I really can't imagine how one motorway,one national road and one railway could fit in the Olt valley.

is it true that the orastie-deva motorway won't be open in two segments but all in one in 2013?

and the last question:did anybody hear anything about gilau-nadasel?

Buna ziua .
Ce se mai aude despre intarziatii Capsuneanu - Besliu de pe Bucuresti Ploiesti ? Se lucreaza la cele doua poduri de pe traseu ?
Despre Bechtel stie cineva ceva ? Cei 18 km pe care ar trebui sa-i deschida in 2012 sunt dinspre Suplacu de Barcau spre Oradea sau invers ?
Dar despre lucrarile din Dobrogea cese mai aude ?

It is possible. The Dutch are doing a 2-level tube tunnel on A2/N2 in Maastricht and at the top there will be just a street/park.



However I agree that the best solution is to go with A1 across the mountains via Curtea de Arges. I believe that it would be much more expensive to do it in the Olt valley.

Both the PM and Boagiu confirmed the month of April. May was proposed by the contractors, but it seems it was rejected. Now, they need to speed up works to meet the April deadline.
