How tall is the Aciliu Viaduct (bridge deck above ground)? Romanian media quotes both 74 and 77 meters.

What does that mean, opening of the motorway in August or in December?

I suppose this means that construction will start this year on all 3 lots... I'm guessing that the whole section could be ready by 2016?

I also hope that the contracts will be signed soon (after contestation period expires). After that the companies have 6 months for preparing the project + 18 months of construction.

The name A6 was first used in the fesability study for Pitesti-Craiova motorway, where a link with A6 is mentioned. It is unsure if that will be the official number in the end , or some other one will be used (see what happened to A4 Targu Mures - Iasi). Politicians and the press don't use the term "A6" yet. Besides, it's not clear which one is the A5

I only believe those road numbers if they appear on the signs. Everything else is just conjecture (Bulgaria is even worse - their official road numbering system does not match the signs).

To be fair, a lot of them fit the numbering scheme of the time they were built - the scheme just keeps changing!

I have an official answer from the Roads and Motorways Company where they said it is A6. So i say we should believe them until proven otherwise!

Worth reading:

From today's hot theme in Serbian newspaper Politika:
http://www.politika.rs/rubrike/Tema-...dor-10.sr.html

Googletranslate:

Foreign carriers bypass the Corridor 10

Truckers due to delays at the border crossings and expensive costs decide for adjacent Corridor 4. The Customs Administration said the average stay in the truck entering Serbia is 85 minutes.


Because of our delay in the construction of Corridor 10 and the increasingly fierce competition, the international highway through Serbia linking Western Europe with the Middle East comes in danger of falling into the traffic obsolescence. Although it is the shortest road connection from Austria to Turkey, since Bulgaria and Romania joined the European Union in 2007, on Corridor 10 there is a drop in traffic of 35 per cent. Serbia's position could be in jeopardy by the competitive Corridor 4, because the lack of a bridge on the Danube River on the border between Bulgaria and Romania, near the town of Vidin, will be eliminated by the end of this month when the newly built bridge will be opened to traffic. Because the highway from Germany through Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria is free of border procedures, with one arm connected to Istanbul and the other to Thessaloniki, our country could have a serious problem.

Miodrag Icy (Poledica), State Secretary in the Ministry of Transport, is not afraid that the bridge will drag transit traffic from our roads, because the access infrastructure to the bridge is not built. In addition, Corridor 4 is not completed through Romania, and on the road from Sofia to Vidin bridge is in the rank of ordinary road. It is not competitive, as he says, because on it one travels 100 kilometers longer from Germany to Turkey.

-Where they're competitive is that there are no border crossings. The main reason is that the drivers who move from Turkey to the West have only one border checks, on entering Bulgaria, where they enter the EU. From there, via Romania, have a free pass to the final destination. On the other hand, if you choose to Corridor 10, from Bulgaria to the border with Serbia you have another check, and on the border with Croatia third check, and only after that in entering Slovenia they enter the EU - Icy (Poledica) says.

Carrier who travels to Greece is worth to bypass better infrastructure and a shorter route through Serbia and Macedonia via Bulgaria to reach its destination. Shortening the time spent at the border, it covers the cost of slightly longer times of driving.

Milan Kovacevic, a consultant for investment, assures us that our poor organization will cost us. If we have completed Corridor 10, before the Bulgarians finish bridge at Vidin, such as ministers promised - we could send a clear message to transit passengers and made them a habit to travel through our country. I tell you what, he says, now we will have to fight for every truck.

- Over Serbia is the shortest route from Central Europe to Asia, but not the cheapest. Different toll collection system in comparison to other European countries can confuse travelers, and there is more expensive for them to pay a toll per kilometer than to buy a vignette. So we have to be aligned with the rest of Europe. And we need to simplify administrative procedures. It is inconceivable that the trucks spend a lot of time at the border crossing. Anyone who crosses the border can notice that - said Kovacevic.

The Customs Administration said that the results of their measurements of the longest average time spent on entering our country in the first two months of this year, is 85 minutes. Similar retention time was observed during the whole of last year.

They state that the number of trucks on the busiest border crossings who remain longer than five hours is very small compared to the total number that appears at the entrance and exit from our country.

For example, they took the month of February 2013, in which on Horgos border crossing from 1,500 trucks entered the country only 30 remained there for more than five hours, while on Batrovci from nearly 1,900 only 29 trucks retained for more than five hours at the entrance to the land.

- In addition to customs officials at border crossings there are various inspection services (which are not part of the Customs, but under the jurisdiction of different ministries), without whose consent the goods can not enter the territory of the Republic of Serbia. These services do not have a 24-hour duty as customs officials, and drivers are forced to wait for officials to obtain necessary permits - an indication is made in the Customs. They emphasize that the officer must have the written approval of the competent inspectors who guarantee that it is correct to allow the goods to keep traveling farther.

Customs procedures, if complete, should be made immediately and be very short.

-Retention of these vehicles, therefore, has all sorts of reasons that did not correlate with the work of customs services (documentation is not complete, awaiting approval by a competent inspection, vehicle defect, driver vacation, etc.), said the people in the Customs Administration.

Exactly how much the truck passes through Serbia is difficult to determine, since the data from all institutions that have contact with them are different. Administration of Customs and the Bureau of Statistics recorded a rise in the number of vehicles that transit on our roads lately.

According to the Institute of Statistics, the number of trucks who transit Serbia is dropped with admission of Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union. Austria, Germany and Bulgaria have halved the number of passes through Serbia. The Greeks also used less Corridor 10. Number of trucks with license plates of those countries has been steadily declining, but the real concern is also decline of Turkish trucks. All this indicates that they go to an alternative route.

But when looking at the total sum of all cargo vessels transiting the 2012th year, he was increased by 5.8 percent from the previous year, but lower than it was prior to the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the EU.

^ Very interesting, thank you! And are you sure it is Google translated? It seems very fluent and clear to me.

Now about the article itself: I don't think the bridge will attract so much traffic to put Corridor X in jeopardy. There is also a mistake which should be fixed: there are border procedures at the BG/RO and RO/HU borders, as Romania and Bulgaria are not part of the Schengen Agreement. For cars, the procedures are very light, just a random ID card control. It is true, there are joint checkpoints, so one will be stopped only once by a patrol of two, one RO officer and one BG (or HU) officer. It is also true, this is a border police checkpoint, not a customs checkpoint, so I imagine it creates no delay for lorries.

Now about infrastructure: the access roads to the bridge are in very good condition on both sides (RO and afaik BG), with bypasses for the main urban areas and all, but we are talking about 1+1 ordinary roads. Two months from now, one can count for a motorway connection just between Pecica (30 km far from HU border) and Remetea (next to Timișoara). Just 70 km. It ain't much. In two years maybe, we can dream about a complete motorway from HU border to Lugoj (140 km), but that's it. There are distant plans for a motorway connection between Lugoj and Danube Bridge 2, but as I said, they are distant...

So my prediction is that most of the freight traffic will stay on Corridor X, because when it comes to speditions, every minute less and every kilometer less really counts.
