Well, in case of Nadlac-Arad lot 2, the tendering will take more than the actual build time. The motorway was SO close to being completed, the only things that were a bit delayed were the ramps for the railroad and DN7 overpasses, and a small section that had some oilpipes which hadn't been moved + ashfalt + barriers.

There is no way that the build time for the remainder of the contract will exceed 3 months. Let's just hope that the MT will be fast in evaluating the progress and preparing the new tender documents. There shouldn't be such a big fight for this lot, since now it's mostly ashfalt laying, similar to any national road rehabilitation, not much else to do.

What happened in Austria? Do you have a link?

Edit: IMHO, the Road Company cannot make any exception from the procedure, even though, as medicu' de garda said, there are only minor works left. That motorway section is under EU financing and it could remain unfunded in the end if the procedures are not followed entirely.

The EC has resumed making payments to Romania for motorway construction:

European Commission to reimburse EUR 172 mln in Romania’s Transport Operational Program
By Newsroom Finance July 05, 2013 14:15


The European Commission (EC), the executive arm of the EU, has approved the reimbursement of EUR 172 million worth of EU funds under the Transport Operational Program.

Another EUR 25.7 million is pending approval from the EC, and the Ministry of Public Finance will submit another EUR 143 million in fresh expenditure for projects carried out under the same program.

The management authority for the transport program is currently working to authorize another EUR 207.5 million in expenditure. This procedure should be completed by August 15.

Around EUR 478 million have been reimbursed in the transport program in the 2007-2012 period. Payments in this program have been unlocked in June 21 after the EC pre-suspended and ceased payments due to mismanagement of the funds and fraud allegations.

Premier Ponta: Motorway connection envisaged between Craiova and Calafat
Friday, 14 June 2013 19:57

Prime Minister Victor Ponta said that the cities of Craiova and Calafat must be connected via motorway and that a project will be submitted to this end in the next EU financial framework for the period 2014 -2020.

Ponta made this statement after the official inauguration of the Calafat - Vidin bridge across the Danube, remarking that he knows that the road to Calafat is in bad repair. This is National Road DN 56 Craiova - Calafat, which is being revamped by two companies on the Craiova - Galicea Mare and Galicea Mare - Calafat segments. The Prime Minister cautioned that if the two companies do not keep a steady pace of the construction works, their contracts will be terminated.

"The idea is this: we will build the road and build it well, but this is not enough - I mean a one-lane road is not enough - which is why the first project for the 2014-2020 programming period we plan to submit is a motorway connection between Craiova and Calafat,"said Ponta.

Speaking about the Craiova - Pitesti project, the head of the government said that the relevant procedures must be completed and the contract on carrying out the motorway under public-private partnership must be signed by the end of the year.

"Practically, there will be a motorway connection running from Craiova via Pitesti to the Constanta southern ring road and the Port of Constanta," detailed Ponta.

Asked when will the Pitesti - Craiova project be completed, the Prime Minister replied that the deadline is 24 months.

This is absolutely great! So, for POS-T 2014-2020, it will be clear that all the money goes to Dumbrava-Soimus section, Sibiu-Pitesti and possibly Craiova-Calafat. Pitesti-Craiova is for PPP scheme.

No mention about C IX which is perfectly eligible for finance, such as C IV. So, Moldova is (again) missed from the scheme. The only (possible) meters of highway in Moldova will be in Bacau for the future by-pass, which is financed by the public budget.

I'm very disappointed. Moldova should and needs highway as soon as possible!

Le Clerk: In Linz the contractor of the Westbrücke was Alpine. Then Alpine went in bankruptcy and stop reconstruct the bridge. Following the bankruptcy of the Alpine Brückenmeisterei Linz took over the construction.

I don't understand wherefrom you draw those conclusions. The only clear aspect for POS-T 2014-2020 is that Sibiu-Pitesti will be the first priority. The rest are not clear yet.

Personally, I think that for the 2-14-2020 budget period, CIX will be prioritised over the rest of CIV bar for Sibiu-Pitesti.

I understand that in Astria they have to rerun the tender for the previously Alpine contracted works too.

Yes. It is kind of "interesting". The main flow of cars heads towards the seaside resorts, that meaning the cars in the middle lanes end their journey on the motorway here and turn mainly right, but also left. While the traffic towards the harbor consists mainly of trucks from the side lanes.

I am not saying that's the best configuration for that interchange, but that's the reason behind it's planning.

Maybe not manyof you know, but few days ago there was a motorway opening in Romania: A4 (Constanta bypass), 2 km east of DN39 exit. It's the connection of A4 motorway with Constanta harbor.

I think that Sibiu-Pitesti and the rest of the C IV (section Dumbrava-Soimus) will finish all the funding for POS-T 2014-2020. The problem is that Romania (from my personal point of view) can't support the difference of 15 % for the finance. But, who knows, maybe the economy rises and shouldn't be a problem.

Does it have a small roundabout in the middle of it, as shown on OpenStreetMap? And will it still, when extended south over the canal (one presumes that is the way the southern extension will go?, rather than leaving this as a spur).

Still going with those unhelpful TEM 'shields' then...

Found a few (on streetview) on non-motorway roads around Constanta, which given what the M stands for, wound up the pedant in me.
