On Monday I was in Suplacu de Barcău area so I stopped to see how looks the abandoned construction site of Transylvania Motorway, more exactly the abandoned viaduct that Bechtel built there (map)

Some retaining walls that start to look damaged on the place where today Transylvania Motorway should have been already opened:







Part of the viaduct beams are mounted, while others (a lot) are waiting on the side. They are huge (about 2 m in height).





Here you can see better how many beams there are:

bogdymol, only sunset matters :-)

anyway the pictures resemble me the motorway (on route from berlin to moscow) which poland was trying to build in seventies last century... it had supposed to be ready by 1980 (Moscow Olymipc Games), actually instead 700 km highway, 2 or 3 viaducts were errected. that was all :-)

June 2004. It's the famous "Bechtel project", see wikipedia.

Not yet. One would be very lucky to find just a toilet, or a parking area alongside the new motorways. Most of them haven't been opened, or, in the case of the A3, haven't even been contracted, though the space for them has been cleared away. There have been recent declarations from the CNADNR that these service areas are up for concession in the near future, but no clear deadline.

Nope.

I once checked an open parking area on A1 near Timisoara, but although the parking area was opened, the toilet-building installed there was locked.

There are gas stations on the older motorways. I know there are a few on A1 Bucharest-Pitesti, and I think that there are 4 gas stations on A2 Bucharest - Fetesti (between Fetesti and Constanta there are no gas stations). But on A2 until just a few years ago there were no gas stations.

There are 3x2 gas stations on A2 and 4x2 on A1 if I am not mistaken.

Please mention that you are referring at A1 Bucharest-Pitesti.

There are no gas stations or toilets on the rest of Romanian motorways:
A1 Arad-Timisoara
A1 Deva-Orastie
A1 Sibiu bypass
A2 Fetesti-Constanta
A3 Cluj Napoca-Campia Turzii
A3 Bucharesti-Ploiesti
A4 Constanta bypass

You'd think there would be some oil companies interested in selling their product.

I bet there are, but the national road company is not interested in renting those spaces to anybody.
