There's currently a highway for that section and it does not need a motorway IMO.

* Buzău - Brăila motorway
That's indeed needed but there are no plans as yet.
IMO, more important would be a motorway link between Braila and A2 (Bucharest-Constanta)

Quote:
* Braşov - Sibiu motorway
There's a highway section there now which has been just completed.

Quote:
* Turda - Sebeş motorway
There are plans for a highway in that section. No motorway.

What do you mean by "highway"? An 2+2 expressway? There are already roads there of course.

Only Bucharest-Suceava is a proper 2x2 expressway (with some short exceptions).

No! It's not! It is just the most stupid and deadliest road in RO.

Sorry, but I don't agree. DN2 (E85) is a normal national road. We have 0 (zero) km of expressways in RO.

I thought DN 2 was a four lane highway. No grade-separation or significant divided parts.

It's 2 x (1 + 0,5). I.e.: 2 by 1 lane and 1 half lane - emergency lane used as a lane by older, slower cars and trucks. It is dangerous.

The picture is from some construction work on A2, not from the ring.
Article translation: 26 km of the ring will become 2x2 this year; in 2011 the ring will be fully 2x2, and all intersections will have overpasses.

DN2 is mostly a one lane road with emergency lane.It functions as a 2+2 road because people are using the emergency lane as a driving lane.The road passes through lots of villages and some towns and has no grade-separated intersections.That kind of road goes on the route Bucharest-Buzau-Bacau-Roman-Tg. Frumos-Iasi(DN2+DN28).From DN28 intersection till Suceava and further on to the border, DN2 is just an ordinary 1+1 road.But the quality of the asphalt is very good.
As for a motorway Buzau-Braila, there are no plans yet, first we must build motorway Ploiesti-Buzau.
On Arad-Oradea there are plans for an expressway, as for Sebes-Turda and Fagaras-Sibiu.The road Brasov-Sibiu got rehabilitated and is one of the most beautiful 1+1 roads I drove in Romania(regarding road quality).Also road Sibiu-Nadlac was rehabilitated and asphalt is very good.

Unfortunately, no. The road in blue (inner ring) is currently enlarged to 2+2. I'm not sure, but I think it still passes through some towns and has at-grade intersections, even with upgrades. Maybe someone from Bucharest can enlighten us about this.

I also think LeClerk's picture depicts the A2 (Bucharest - Constanta), the inner ring shouldn't have green signs because it isn't a motorway.

The current Bucharest Beltway is upgraded to 2x2. First they will finish the northern section between DN 1A and DN 2. Also they will try to buit from scratch the missing part that is form DN 1A to DN 7. Later they will finish the northern section from A1 to A2.
I strongly believe that following these reconstructions there will be no at grade intersection, and the road will be like an european standard expressway. I know that they are building another bridge over DN1, a bridge over DN1A, a bridge over Tunari - Pipera road, and also a bridge for the future A3 motorway that will be operational next year starting from the beltway.

As for the motorway around Bucharest there are talks that the norhern part will be built by the same company that will take care of A2. But there are no real signs just yet.
