My understanding is that the opening of the Western Sebes by-pass will be in October. So one more month to bear the crazy traffic. One of the craziest sections of A1 route will be relieved by this opening.

Even with this partial opening the traffic in Sebes will decrease because there were many driving through Sebes while they came from Sibiu and headed to Cluj-Napoca (or back).

Those traffic lights were disabled a long time ago.

Apparently, Chinese are out of the Comarnic-Brasov motorway concession, same as Romanian Spedition UMB. Only the Italians from Ipregilio and French from Vinci remained in the race. The latter apparently have better chances, as Itaians want to get Bucharest motorway ring project.

Comarnic-Brasov winner should be announced in late August-early September

i wonder about this project since the entire ppp law initiative in Romania( that i think was going to regulate this also) has been struck down at EU level for non-compliance with the union guidelines.

The current draft law on PPPs wasn't struck down at EU level, but some amendments were required. AFAIK, the amendments have already been operated.

BUT, the current concessions are not done under this law but under the public procurement law, which is in agreement with the EU regulations.

Hello, I know Ploiesti quite well because in the past I had to go for work there. Can you show me the exact location of this interchange. t.m where 102 crosses DN1?

According to the transportation minister, 140 km of new motorway will be opened by end-year:

Lugoj-Deva LOT 1: 27.5 km (=> this may open by the end of this month)
Orastie-Sibiu LOT 1: 24.1 km
Orastie-Sibiu LOT 2: 19.8 km
Orastie-Sibiu LOT 3*: 22.1 km
Orastie-Sibiu LOT 4: 16.1 km

*This is unclear if it opens in December this year, or in spring next year.

Deva-Orastie 33 km was opened earlier this year in May.

With the probable signature of the EU funded Sebes-Turda motorway (70 km), Comarnic-Brasov motorway concession (55 km) and Bucharest south motorway by-pass concession** (48 km), this will be one of the best years for motorways in Romania.


**Not clear yet about the other concession: Craiova-Pitesti (120 km).

PS: we'll be breaking the 700 km barrier this year.

PS 2: Romania will also take over Serbia and Bulgaria in terms of motorway lenght this year. Hungary, we are coming fast!

Fixed . Never believe any transport minister (no minister at all, for that matter), especially one as incompetent and clueless as the current one

I quoted his statements. We'll see at end year if he was right or lame.

ahem. way too much exuberance imo. we are in serious shit without bypasses in n situations, we are paying fines on current eu financed projects, totally incoherent with strategy at various levels. puhlease.


in fact there is a visible slow down in the pipeline and the field, and yes there is some building going on but overall it is anemic when you compare it with the lack of high volume in critical areas.
perhaps in 5- 10 years.

We're paying NO FINES!! The EU correction on funds simply means that we'll get on THOSE projects 25% less money then initially contracted. HOWEVER, the money are not lost. They are still allocated to Romania, but for new projects. This is how we have money for Sebes - Turda!

I totally disagree!

I understand there is a political movement against the Grand Projects Ministry (how ridiculous is that name?!) which is in charge with the construction of the motorways. And it seems that despite the fact that I have criticized him myself, now I'm considered one of his supporters just because this time I agree with him.

So be it, but the reality on the ground confirms what he declared today: we'll have at least 130 km of new motorway this year, possibly even 140 km. The openings start at the end of August and we'll have openings almost every month till December.

It used to be like that, but hopefully no more. Romania has finally learned to build motorways, and for some time latelly we are building them fast, even though with some hiccups.
