Some interesting data showing there is trafic only for one single PPP in Romania, in between Ploiesti and Brasov:

Very slow progress on 1st Lot of Nădlac-Arad motorway, the most western section of A1, just close to Hungarian border. Romanian-Portugese joint-venture Romstrade-MonteAdriano-Donrep is way behind schedule. Fears are that we're facing a similar situation as one year ago in Hungary, on M43 construction site. Rumours are that suppliers, subcontractors and even MonteAdriano were not paid by the contract leader Romstrade.

Nădlac-Arad Lot 1

1) Section built by Romstrade:

- overpass on secondary road DC103 over motorway, km 11+330:



- works towards km 10-11:





- power supply line needing relocation:



- archaeological survey:



- works towards km 8-9:

2) km 6+000; we are now on MonteAdriano's section; but the colour is the same:




- beautiful flowers at km 4+450, where an overpass on secondary road DJ709J is foreseen:

The alignment of A1 motorway near Sibiu is becoming more visible. There will be built first motorway tunnel in Romania (not very long, only 350m):

How is the tendering of the remaining sections Timisoara - Sibiu going?

A2 works: Cernavoda-Medgidia

Dupa cum se vede, pe partea dreapta (sensul spre Constanta) lucrarile la structuri sunt ceva mai avansate, in general dalele suprastructurii fiind montate. Totusi mai e mult pâna departe si in consecinta nu cred sa fie gata la 01.07.2012. Poate mai degraba 01.08.2012. Sper sa ma însel.

Vedere spre Cernavoda de pe pod. Se observa de asemenea un progres superior pe sensul spre Constanta, aici in poze cel din stânga:












Poze cu podul DJ222:





Am discutat cu un muncitor si mi-a spus ca probabil in 2-3 zile vor da drumul circulatiei pe pod, pentru a putea finaliza la sol autostrada. De asemenea vor mai aduce o statie de asfaltare in zona si vor intra puternic mai ales pe sensul Bucuresti spre Constanta, cel care va fi deschis traficului, cu circulatie pe o singura banda in fiecare directie. Omul stia de 30.06 ca data la care trebuie dat drumul pe un sens si era destul de convins ca e posibil... Dar repet era un angajat oarecare de acolo, fara nici un fel se functie, lasat probabil duminica sa pazeasca utilajele.

Ultima poza am lasat-o intentionat mai mare, in departare se vede nodul Valea Dacilor (de fapt supratraversarea DJ381 peste A2):




Dupa cum se poate vedea, pe partea aceasta a podului DJ222 autostrada este asfaltata in mod egal pe ambele sensuri de mers. De fapt aici este granita intre lotul Cernavoda - Medgidia si lotul Medgidia - Constanta. De aici spre Constanta, se va circula normal, pe full-profile. (sau venind de la Constanta, pâna aici).

Unde acum este semnul de acces interzis va fi scris "Bucuresti", fiind spre breteaua de intrare spre Bucuresti. Sper macar Bucuresti sa scrie mai mare. Sau poate sunt doar niste panouri provizorii, puse de constructor? Ca nu prea respecta standardul din alte locuri.




Asadar intâi pozele de ieri:




si de astazi, luni 11.06 (dar ma grabeam si doar din goana masinii




Revenim la pozele de duminica 10.06.2012, ne uitam de pe pod spre Bucuresti / Cernavoda:



Aici se vede bine subtraversarea A2 pe sub calea ferata Medgidia - Cobadin - Negru Voda - Dobric (BG):






Se observa ca si bretelele nodului sunt asfaltate, in general cu 2 straturi, deci lipseste doar uzura. Prin nodul Valea Dacilor se va circula de la bun începu full profile si cu ocazia deschiderii acestuia se va desfiinta nodul provizoriu de pe DN3, dintre Ciocârlia si Murfatlar. De altfel acolo, la intersectia DN3 cu A2, subtraversarea DN3 sub autostrada este deja gata si functionala (in ianuarie nu era inca).

De la nodul Valea Dacilor se va putea iesi de pe autostrada si pleca mai departe pe 3 directii:
- pe DJ381 spre Medgidia
- pe un drum comunal prin Siminoc catre Murfatlar (=Basarabi) si mai departe DN3 spre Valu lui Traian (posibil numai pentru vehicule usoare)
- pe DJ381 spre sud, pâna in Ciocârlia si apoi pe DN3 spre Cobadin / Ostrov (pe aici pentru vehiculele grele si spre Murfatlar)

Posibil sa astepte si finalizarea completa a clover-leaf-ului de la intersectia DN3 cu A4, adica nodul Constanta Vest. Aici de asemenea bretelele par insa a fi terminate:








In imaginea de mai sus panoul din dreapta cu sensul giratoriu este cel valabil acum. Sensul giratoriu se va desfiinta si va deveni valabil panoul de sus, recent instalat, care indica Bucuresti si Agigea la dreapta pe bretea.

Romanian forum user Baiazid just made some amazing pictures on A3 Bucharest - Ploiesti motorway which is u/c, but should be opened on June 30th (after many delays). I won't post all his pictures here because there are too many, but you can see all of them on the Romanian forum, starting with this post.


green - completed
yellow - asphalt stage
red - groundworks (actually there's a bridge that is not completed)









As I said, you can see all the pictures here.

There is no way A2 will be finished before summer.

Is there any reason why, given the A3 is an upgrade of the E60 corridor, there's no room on the signs to put [E60] shields? I can sort of understand why this section hasn't been signed as such currently (as it doesn't join back up with the E60 at the southern end), but surely it's the aim to move the E60 to the A3 (that said, it doesn't take the A2 to Constanta).

Thinking about those weird [TEM] shields on the A2 and A4 near Constanta, they will probably be patched as [E81] (maybe [E87] on the A4) when the A2 is finished.

Thanks @bogdymol.

The unfinished bridge Cociovalistea (km 26+200) is curently at the waterproofing stage:














And let's not forget the pictures that triggered some central media articles in Romania today, "The first 3 lane motorway section in Romania". The pictures were taken from an overpass bridge at Km 15+400, but a TV station reported that I took them from a helicopter. Hence my new avatar

So, looking towards Ploiesti:






And towards Bucuresti:






The motorway to be opened at the 30th of June, ends yet at the Bucharest Ring Road, just before the bridge in the far side of the picture. That bridge is still under construction and it is actually A3 passing the Bucharest Ring Road into Bucharest for 5.5 more kilometers. But that section just started to be constructed and it is planned to be opened in October 2012. But that is actually impossible. So maybe in 2013.

I'm not sure, but I think at first the road has to be open and only then the Transport Department can request the relocation of the E road. Otherwise it would be wrong and confusing.

Actually, the section of E60 Bucuresti - Constanta is STILL on the national roads, DN 2 Bucuresti - Urziceni + DN 2A Urziceni - Constanta. So not yet on A2.

No it doesn't - the E404 in Belgium was allocated to a road planned 30 years ago, but scrapped about 20 years ago.

Also, moving to the A3 wouldn't change the route description, which is all the UNECE has (other than a diagrammatic map and maps of a few countries which have had recent route extensions/creations).

And even if there was a convoluted process, that doesn't stop them leaving room on signs for shields.

But as the E81 is, this suggests that it won't be moved, else they would have already done it. Which makes me wonder whether the plan is to keep E60 on the DN1, rather than the A3. Any reason why they might do that?

I have no idea, so I'm just guessing: I think that E60 will be moved to A3 and A2 as soon as A2 will be completed to Constanta and A3 to Ploiesti. Actually A3 will be completed this year, but then they'll wait to have the A2 also ready in 2013. And then do the switch.
