Huge embankments. Does this area flood often?

These days not often. But the high water happens now 10-20 years. The highest flood in the area was in the 1970, when then plain around the motorway was under several meters of water. I would say that's the reference they took into account for the embankments.

I think Romania is statistically one of the most flood-prone countries in Europe.

Some amazing shots with the Aciliu Viaduct:

Imaginile sunt din dreptul haltei CFR Aciliu, aproximativ la 500m de viaduct:




Buza dealului spre viaduct:



Banuiesc ca aici sunt niste lucrari de stabilizare a dealului (in dreapta imaginii precedente)



Si acum, Maria Sa, Viaductul...

















Asa arata din drumul catre Aciliu... dupa cum se vede lansarea grinzilor este aproape terminata, jos palaria Impregilo, Collini, Maeg, EPCO macarele si celelalte firme participante la constructie!!!






In continuare pe lotul Impregilo, catre Miercurea Sibiului:

O zona in care mai e de asemenea mult de lucrat, dupa viaduct catre Apoldu de Jos



DJ143B (acelasi drum judetean care traverseaza autostrada la Rusciori, langa nodul Sibiu vest) aici trece pe sub autostrada, intre Apoldu de Jos si Amnas:



In acelasi loc, se lucreaza langa autostrada, sincer, nu stiu exact pentru ce (sa fie centru de intretinere? - poate cineva ne lamureste)



Langa Apoldu de Jos:



Langa acelasi sat, DJ106G va trece pe sub autostrada:



Catre Miercurea Sibiului se lucra cu spor:



Aici incepe lotul Impregilo, in dreptul Miercurea Bai:



Mai departe, lucra Straco, la limita dintre loturi:





Astea au fost imaginile de pe lotul 3 al celor de la Impregilo!

I do not particularly trust our PM, but I'll post this here anyway:

Craiova-Pitesti and Comarnic-Brasov motorway works will start next year

However, so far there is no info on the financing of such works, which are expected to cost ~ EUR 2 billion alltogether. Of course, not all that money needs to be paid next year, but for the works to begin, an upfront payment of about 20% needs to be paid.

On this one I totally agree with you. I don't see how those motorways cand be started. Both can involve only a small TEN-T financing from EU, so most of the money must come from the national budget or from a PPP. Considering the fact that both are just ideas so far, I really can't imagine have even a signed contract for any of them before the end of 2013. Let alone the construction start...

They don't even have FS done. For Comarnic-Brasov they are tring to tender it for some time already, while for Pitesti-Craiova there is not even a FS tender procedure announced.

Bogdymol told me they changed the design from a cut to a tunnel because the hillside is too unstable for a cut.

Some good shots of the recently completed A2:

Pai n-avem autostrada cap-coada pana la Constanta, de ce sa n-o folosim daca tot sa inaugurat si finalizat?
Asa ca azi la ora 11.00 plecam din Bucuresti-Aviatiei si la 13.05 eram la Mamaia.

Sincer sa fiu mi se pare ciudat sa nu mai fac 4-5 ore pana la mare, insa si mai tare e sa ajung sa vad in Romania interchange-uri de autostrazi (A2 si A4).

De la Bucuresti pana la Fundulea sunt multe portiuni cu denivelari si gropi in terasamentul betonat. Aici ar trebui refacuta toata autostrada.
De la Fundulea pana la Cernavoda se merge ok, mai sunt denivelari, dar se merge destul de bine:









Pe segmentul Cernavoda-Medgidia-Constanta lucrurile se schimba radical, si calitatea lucrarilor si peisajele:












Iesirea de pe A4 pe B-dul I.C. Bratianu, in fata showroom-ului Toyota mi se pare foarte neinspirata si ar trebui regandita.


Welcome to Constanta:

Is there a good reason why the road is so windy on a completely flat and non-urban land? Romans built much straighter roads in less flat areas 2000 years ago

Illusion induced by zooming + the need to build the bridge perpendicular to the river to make it shorter and therefore reducing its costs.

The good reason for NOT building straight highways, in general, is that drivers tend to decrease their attention. I don't know this particular case.

From another side, the 1+1 national roads have as much as possible strait sections to offer better chances for overtaking.

What's the difference between a Drum Expres and a Drum Rapid?

I think Drum Expres would be like an S road in Poland or Austria, or R roads in Czechia, whereas a Drum Rapid looks like it would be just a fast undivided road with bypasses, fewer junctions, maybe a few grade-separated junctions.
