PM Emil Boc: We now have the guarantee that, on the Romanian National Day (1 December), the 42 km of Autostrada Transilvania will be completed

August 17, 2009 - www.hotnews.ro


"At this moment, as I said, we have the guarantee that on the Romanian National Day the 42 km of motorway between Turda and Gilau will be completed and Cluj residents will be rid of the heavy traffic that has been causing them nightmares for so many a year ", declared Prime Minister Emil Boc. This Friday the head of the Executive visited the Transilvania motorway site, „to ensure that our promises are kept ".

Here are some of the Prime Minister’s standout statements:
• We have come to make sure our promises are kept
• Utilities have all been relocated, there is no longer any impediment in this respect
• Secondly, 30 km of asphalt binder course has already been laid, with the wearing course to soon follow suit
• The viaducts scheduled for completion up to this moment are finalized. The most complex viaduct is ready.
• At this moment, as I said, we have the guarantee that on the Romanian National Day the 42 km of motorway between Turda and Gilau will be completed and Cluj residents will be rid of the heavy traffic that has been causing them nightmares for so many years.
• However in order to achieve this goal, we will be all-eyes on the works, which are complex, given our Transilvanian relief.
• Minister Radu Berceanu has been making miraculous efforts to provide financing for infrastructure works, both here on this project and throughout Romania.
• Without money pumped into the economy, infrastructure and investment we will not be able to re-launch the country on the path to growth.

They think they can turn this into a motorway in just 3.5 months?

If you say so... I've seen similar projects in Switzerland take like 10 years to complete. Similar structures, though the terrain may be somewhat more difficult than in the relatively flat surroundings of Cluj.

Good old Bukovina

Are there many tourists in that area? I heard those Moldovian monasteries are quite stunning.

My statement was based on the speed they previously completed such structures. Once pier heads are done, it's pretty much over.

I'm more concerned about this:

http://www.autostradatransilvania.ro...km-50-600.html

As you can see, they are still doing some piling. And it is a viaduct (about 600 m long!) that is supposed to be in the section finished this year.
THAT will be a real challenge!

In fact DN15D from Roman to Piatra Neamt is not in Bukovina, but a little bit to the south.Bukovina is a more mountainous region, whose monasteries, placed on Unesco World Heritage List attracts many tourists.It's a beautiful region both from natural and cultural point of view.

I can assure you this place is worthy to visit. I was driving around Southern Bukovina in 2007 and it is like a 5 day trip full of interesting places (monasteries + beautiful surroundings). but roads that time...

Also roads improved a lot since then, DN17 was fully rehabilitated and it's a pleasure to drive and also I think rehabilitation works started on DN18.Maybe someone from that area can tell us exactly if works started or not, because I haven't been through there since april 2008.

14.


there are only 2 exits in 100km

15.

I think this is the most boring motorway of Europe , A2 between Bucuresti and Fetesti (4th exit) - when you cross the Danube first time.

16.
3rd exit: Drajna



17.



18.

I didn't find the "D"


PS. Google Maps don't want to show us this motorway

I drove this motorway two weeks ago. It was a pleasant (though boring) drive. The road looked quite nice, although some of the exits are a bit tight.

On our way back from the coast to Bucharest we took smaller roads in the south of the country. That way the journey took almost a day.

Widening the north section of Bucharest bypass. Image was taken along Tunari Forest. When finished (2010) the road will have two lanes each way.

Looks pretty much like Nigerian 2x2 highways , without middle barrier and without any safety sticks indicating the edge of the road (correction: there is one [1] ).

Our national road company's concern for safety is mindnumbing, as usual.

What's wrong with Nigerian 2x2 highways ?
