Yes, termination of Colas contract on A2 had a positive effect on the terminated section, which was completed quite fast (~ 1 year later) and at lower cost.

If this section is tendered in spring, and a good contractor such as Astaldi or Alpine gets the work (they are already in the vicinity with some projects) then the section can be completed in 1 year from contract award.

delays happen everywhere. it is a good sign for other construction companies doing thier business in Romania that no delays will be tolerated and penalties will be executed.

of course the above makes only sense if you have professionalists in the Road Authority, if not and - in fact - there were some non-businesses conditions impacting contact cancellation then ...
I am sorry about the delay. Otherwise I completely agree with you and approve it.

I believe this would not be an exception (contract cancelation)

if there are many open construction works (like now in Romania), we need to be prepared for delays, some re-negotiations of original contract conditions etc.

usually local subcontractors will be suffering from it. the money template works as follows: the Road Authority pays to a vendor for finished tasks in a project plan, and then a vendor pays to local subcontractors. if situation gets complicated (delays, etc) a vendor does not pay anything to local (Romanian) subcontractors and reserve money for penalties or simply goes into bankruptcy. no money received by locals.

Thx 4 the map Le Clerk!

Maybe I was way too clumsy recently, but I can't recall seeing any photo coverage of the u/c A3 Bors - Suplacu de Barcau section lately.

Could someone post an update?

Construction works have been suspended for this section, and we hope it will become U/C again next year. That's why no pics were posted here.

The section is 50% completion currently, and if funds are allotted, it could be opened next year.

Bad news: as mentioned before, EU is bound to cut infrastructure funds for new members.

Quote:
New EU budget draft seeks cuts in farm aid, cohesion
14.11.12 @ 17:56

BERLIN - New member states and France are set to lose most from a fresh EU budget proposal slashing €75 billion from proposed 2014-2020 spending, but Britain still wants more cuts or it will veto the deal at a summit next week.

Drafted by EU Council chief Herman Van Rompuy, the new "negotiating box" seeks cuts in almost all areas, with farm subsidies - which France benefits from the most - slashed by €21.5 billion compared to the initial EU commission proposal of €1 trillion overall for the seven-year period.

Funds for infrastructure and enterprises to help eastern member states to catch up with the West - so-called cohesion policy - is also set to receive €17 billion less than planned.

Well, that's no surprise. You can't expect the EU to raise their spending by 10% or so while the individual states have to cut back significantly.

Considering there will be a decrease in EU funding in infrastructure for Romania (as well as for other EU members too), and because the Romanian economy reenters recession, I don't expect other projects than the EU funded ones to be resumed/started.

Already, tenders kept a couple of months ago on the rest of A1 sections have not been awarded, and there is speculation that is caused by lack of co-funding.

So, if the budget construction is not able to co-fund 15% of motorway construction (in fact, it is a bit more due to expenditure that is not covered by the EU), I expect no other projects without EU funding to be undertaken. That means, no other work on A3 next year and no new project started. And next year could not be very diferent from other years to come. A prolonged crisis in Europe will affect Romania too.

BTW:our Transportation Min met HU state secretary Volner Pal and agreed on an investment in an express road Nyiregyhaza-Petea-Satu Mare-Baia Mare, a continuation of M49. As always, no clear identification of financial resources of the investment, except for the usual EU financing BS.
