Baiazid already drove on A3 Bucharest-Ploiesti and we got tons of pics from that journey. It looks like the whole thing is finished, the only work remaining are some short sections which are not marked. I really don't understand why they are postponing again.


Anyway, some pictures:

La Km 19, dezmembrarea stalpilor de inalta tensiune, care au fost inlocuiti cu unii mai inalti, pentru a respecta gabaritul de siguranta pe autostrada al celor trei linii de inalta tensiune care traverseaza A3.






Inghesuiala mare...

Thank you @LeClerk.

I have absolutely no idea why the opening was postponed again. The only delayed works are at the exits. But the remaining work is more like 5-7 days, not 33 more days!

But the motorway itself can be opened for traffic within 2-3 days. So the delay and can not be understood. "Unsafe for traffic" as they claimed is not what I saw. Further, it would not have been the first motorway opened for traffic without the complete exits. Like I said, I don't know what to comment on this delay and on it's reason.

So the complete story (mostly pictures) can be found here, while the complete journey in pictures from Bucharest Ring Road to Ploiesti Ring Road can be found here

Thank you! I was looking to have a ride on my bike yesterday so now I am dissapointed even more. Anyway, it shouldn't take more until they decide to open it.

An interesting report from Simeria-Deva A1 works, which seem pretty advanced:

Some quality pictures of Cernavoda-Medgidia (A2) - of course, more delays from July 1st deadline:

Fotografiile sunt facute vineri 29-06-2012; azi am vazut ca deja lucrau la fundatia continuuarii A2. Poate totusi pe 10 iulie vom avea parte de o lansare partiala.

Yes, unless those pictures are at least 3 months old, that road ain't opening today!

Edit: I'm guessing the A3 didn't open yesterday? What's the ETA on that? Can't be more than a week, surely?

Pictures are from today. The sections was supposed to open half profile as of 30 June, which it didn't obviously and will not at least until end of July.

A3 between Bucharest and Ploiesti is completed and ready for opening. Not clear when opening for traffic will be. The changes in the Transportation Ministry are bringing some mess and I am hoping the delays are not related to politiking, that is chasing unwarrantly the existing contractors.

1st of August 2012, despite the fact the the motorway could have been opened already. There are minor works left at the 2 exits on the way and some other minor non-essential and short distance works on crash-barriers, water drains etc. Nothing that wouldn't impeach significantly on the motorway traffic.

Yet, the new Ministry of Transportation claimed the motorway "is unsafe for traffic"! Therefore it MIGHT be opened on the 1st of August, but even then severe speed limits should/would/will be applied, in the range of 80-100 km/h, due to the "motorway unsafety".

That's all exclusively political BS!! We're in an election year, after a government change. So the new Government - supported by the former opposition - doesn't want to award a good result, such as the opening A3 motorway, to the previous Government, which is today's opposition.

As a result, we have a good and 99% completed motorway kept closed for at least one more month.

Nothing there. Or almost nothing. Probably all efforts (read: "money") have been redirected towards A1.

==========

Few pics of the 1 km long viaduct of Aciliu. The second motorway tunnel in Romania will be built here, near viaduct's abutment. Cut & cover type, around 350m long.

Beautiful pylons

Guys, I've stopped following international motorway threads for a while. Could you please tell me if a big road project linking Constanta and Odessa is lurking in the minds of RO government/UKR government/moldovian government/private companies? This would explain the following:

Quote:
NB: I have just read that there is strong interest submited to our National Road Agency for a PPP in building a motorway on these routes:
1) BG/RO border Vama Vece/Durankulak - Varna - Burgas - BG/TR border at Rezovo or at least to some of the resorts in the south or I-9+II-99
2) BG/RO border Vama Vece/Durankulak - Varna - Burgas - BG/TR border at Malko Tarnovo or I-9
3) BG/RO border Vama Vece/Durankulak - Varna - Burgas - Svilengrad - BG/GR border at Novo selo/Ormenio or I-9+II-79 till II-80
A private traffic survey unkown to our road agency might have been conducted that showed the economical feasability of some of these routes.

There is not even a discussion about such motorway project because it would be little possible for physical and financial reasons. The motorway would have to go through the Delta (which would not be allowed probably by the EU), and would be very expensive because there would be needed many / mostly viaducts, and neither Romania nor Ukraine have that kind of money, and it is unlikelly that the EU will fund that. The only feasible and planned motorway route to Odessa for the moment is Bucharest-Iasi-Chisinau-Odessa (Corridor IX). There is also an alternative through Bucharest-Braila/Galati, but it's more remote. So the answer is no, not even planned.


BUT, there is indeed a plan for a Constanta-Vama Veche motorway (an extension of A4 basically) but that is also remote IMO.

Ukraine should rather upgrade its road through that region, because it is little possible to even reach by road to Odessa. The road looks like a country-side alley:

You'll get a laugh out of this BUT, is there any place online where I can find the projects (blue-prints / whatever) for the Ploiesti - Comarnic and Comarnic - Rasnov / Brasov sections for A3.
Or even the projects are not for sure?
