You might be right at this one. I admit that I wasn't paying too much attention at the news.

We will wait and see if it's April or May

I took my camera along on a trip Constanta - Bucuresti. The quality of the pictures it's poor but they serve the purpose of illustrating the stage of the works on Constanta Bypass and A2 Constanta - Medgidia.






this two shoots try to capture the transparency of the direction signs. when the sun it's shining from behind. one needs to get closer to be able to read the sign and since there are no repeater signs it's not to difficult to take the wrong line .

the repeater sign it's missing on every romanian road. tuning left or wright or changing lanes in this case it's on the last minute principle

when one exits the roundabout going towards Valea Dacilor looking left
there seems to be an overpass that I take it to be the one over the rail road.
Can someone confirm of infirm this please?




Not more then ten but every equipment that I've seen working on A2 was on the move.




The potholes in Medgidia were covered. At least the ones that I've come across
The stretch of road in front of the Hospital it's a good example for those that had to
use it before.

to better understand the different stages of the A2 Cernavoda - Constanta and the Constanta Bypass will be really helpful if we can get some more pictures for the following locations:

Southern part of Romania was affected in the last few days by a huge snow storm. Many roads were blocked and Bucharest was completely locked from the rest of the country (nobody got in or out the capital on road, railway or by air). The main problem was the wind that had even 100-120 km/h and was blowing the snow back on the road after the snow plows.

Here is a map with the blocked roads (click to enlarge):

it should be not only common, but mandatory as it is in Bulgaria and probably all other European countries.

It's not mandatory in all Europe. In Germany and Netherlands it's only recommended.

In Germany winter tires are mandatory in winter conditions since the end of 2010.

Winter tires are not mandatory in Norway. However, in winter conditions, a minimum of 3 mm thread depth is mandatory.

Winter tires are mandatory in Romania on roads that are covered with snow, ice or glazed frost, no matter the season (winter, spring etc). There is no refference in the law regarding the period when you should use the winter tires (as the romanian press suggested). I have read the law so I'm shure of it. Even the Transport Minister made a statement on their official website in order to clarify this (http://www.mt.ro/nou/comunicate.php?id=22). You all know than the winter on the plains and on the mountains are two different things. For example on high altitude roads you can find snow even in summer so if you do not have winter tires and the police makes a control, you can be shure you'll get fined.

In Serbia, winter tires will be mandatory from 1st November to 1st April. You say that tires are not mandatory in Norway, and they plan to introduce it here in Serbia to be mandatory (compare the climate and location of countries). Who is crazy here? Sorry for OT.
