^ Yes, it is a full profile motorway. In fact, it is part of Arad-Timişoara motorway.

The fence was not installed at the time the picture was taken. Just the fence poles were there...

The temptation will be always there. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

Oh, ok. I wondered how they got on the other side.

Do you have a map of planned, u/c and build highways in your country?
I mean something similar to this in Polish section : http://ssc.siskom.waw.pl/nowa-mapa.png

Not at that level of detail, still a pretty close one, with some minor errors:

There are some errors on that map too, but it is better:

1. The map is missing the section Craiova - Drobeta Turnu Severin (DTS), which has far better chances to be constructed before any link to Calafat. Actually, the direct link Drobeta Turnu Severin - Calafat is planned to be considered way after 2020.

2. The link Turda - Sebes is more likely to be an express way, rather then motorway

3. The link Sibiu - Brasov is missing, although it stands a better chance to actually be a motorway, rather then Turda - Sebes.

More like 2025-2030 or beyond.

Actually, we could put some estimates, although they're not official. On the other hand, even if there are official estimates, almost nobody believes them.

Estimating the completion of the network in the map above is more like a game of guessing based on how the things have moved so far, combined with which parties seems more likely to lead the country and what their leaders say/said and do/did. So, we could roughly say that the following are good estimates for the completion of the whole motorways:

Bucuresti - Pitesti - Sibiu - Nadlac(- HU): 2016 - 2018
Bucuresti Motorway Ring South: 2016 - 2018
Bucuresti Motorway Ring North: 2018 - 2020
Bucuresti - Ploiesti - Focsani - Albita (- MD): 2020 - 2025
Bucuresti - Ploiesti - Brasov - Targu Mures - Cluj - Oradea - Bors (- HU): 2025
Bucuresti - Craiova - Drobeta Turnu Severin - Lugoj: 2020 - 2025
Targu Mures - Iasi: 2020 - ?
Bucuresti - Giurgiu: >2025
Craiova - Calafat: >2020
Drobeta Turnu-Severin - Calafat: >2025
Izvin - Moravita: 2018 - 2020
Focsani - Bacau - Suceava (- UA): >2025
Turda - Sebes: maybe never.
Agigea - Vama Veche: maybe never.

In fact the map is more like a "wishful thinking" since about half of it are rather ideas then plans. A lot of people are talking about those motorways in the sense that they should be built at some point. But within the "visible" time frame of 2020 - 2025 there are serious doubts that even the major routes (Bucuresti - Nadlac, Bucuresti - Brasov - Cluj - Oradea, Bucuresti - Albita and Bucuresti Motorway Ring) will be built.

Here are some pics that I've taken today on A1 Arad-Timisoara motorway:

For the start, the 2 pannels from Giarmata interchange:


It's written Arad-Timisoara motorway, completion in 2nd trimester, 2012

Timisoara - Lugoj (lot 1): UMB



At Giarmata interchange I haven't seen anything changed since December. They still have a lot of work here...

View from Giarmata interchange to Timisoara-Lugoj motorway:



A1 Arad-Timisoara:



Surprise! On A1, in several places the works have restarted. Here they were mounting some shiny crashbarriers on the middle:



One of the bridges where there are some problems. You can clearly see the tyre marks from the lorries that hitted this bump at high speed:



Works...





Second problematic bridge:



Entrance in Arad county. Here the shiny crash barriers are missing on about 200:



Near Sagu village, there's a temporary exit used by the contractor because it has the site organisation in this area (but I heard that it's also used by local people for entrance/exiting the motorway, some of them even doing this from one motorway carriage to the other because here the crash barriers were not yet installed):

Electronic sign before Mures bridge:





This picture was taken on Mures bridge. If you don't know the area you have no ideea that you are passing over the Mures river or that you even are on a bridge:


Note that you can't see anything after the curve

After the curve, SURPRISE! A team of work(ers) were obviously working, but withuout any pre-signaling (just those yellow lights on the truck were blonking sometime):



Another electronic sign:



Arad-Airport exit:

On the asphalt there have painted the speed limit for each lane:



Arad-Airport exit is still closed



The lightning poles are smaller near the Arad-Airport runway:



On the left you can see a CCTV camera:



I think that here they will mount an electronic sign:



On the right there will be the motorway interchange towards Nadlac (Hungarian border crossing):



They were working at the interchange:

u/c overpass over the bypass. The overpass is part of the Arad-Nadlac interchange:



Overpass of DJ682F (the only overpass on Arad bypass except the exits):



Unfortunatelly here comes the end of the bypass:



The end of the bypass it's well signed:







It looks like someone tried to jump over the roundabout:
