No, they are not on motorways yet. But the gas stations do have restaurants or cafeterias.

I remember being in a McDonald in a service area, but I can't remember if it was on A1 or just in DN1.

Seems that the last section (6,5 km only) of Bucharest- Ploiesti motorway will not be ready in 2013. Probably due to the rough soil There are some hopes for 2015..

So the logic of this article is that as too much traffic would be using the motorway going via Brasov, then the direct Pitesti-Sibiu, which has a considerably lower aadt would be the correct solution?
How about building motorways where they're actually needed the most, so if a 2x2 motorway might not be enough in the future, make it 2x3!!!

The recent changes in priorities in the motorway network, most blatently kicking Pitesti-Sibiu into some very long grass, mean that you have some very strange numbering
A1: Bucharest - Pitesti // Sibiu - Sebes - Lugoj - Timisoara - Arad - Naclac
A3: Bucharest - Brasov - Faragaras // Tg Mures - Turda - Cluj - Oradea
A6: Lugoj - Calafat
A?: Faragas - Sibiu
A?: Sebes - Turda
A?: Pitesti - Craiova
I propose, some renumbering:
A1: Bucharest - Pitesti - Craiova - Lugoj - Timisoara - Arad - Naclac
A3: Bucharest - Brasov - Faragaras - Sibiu - Sebes - Turda - Cluj - Oradea
A6: Sebes - Lugoj
A7: Turda - Tg Mures
A10: Calafat spur
A11: Pitesti bypass

If it were a permanent situation it would make perfect sense. However, I believe that this situation is temporary. It is not certain yet, that the highway between Sibiu and Fagaras will be constructed (although it is more likely by the hour). There are some concerns about EU-financing for this project.
Not to mention that most of the highway-signs will have to be changed. This means another tender, more money spent, some very good and band new signs will be thrown away. And the signs on A1 are paid with EU-money, which might result in giving the money back.
Apart from that, what you propose makes a lot of sense.

the "only" problem I can see is that there is no clear motorway programme either I do not follow this thread carefully :-)
just a month ago or so everything seemed to be so obvious. now plans got changed (dramatically ?).
I do not see it as a well prepared, long term development plan for Romanian motorways. sorry for that but it looks to me like "catch what you can, worry later"
someone can say: "ok, it is better than nothing" or "in time of world crisis you need to be flexible" but this is very harmful for whole Romanian econy (not to mention investors)

Especially as the A1 IS the busiest road in the country as well as an EU Ten T core route, irrespectiive of cost.

You can't compare traffic counts like that. Traffic counts are at a single location, not a 100 kilometer stretch of road.

I had a good laugh when this numbers were released and I noticed they write one number for the entire 500+ km of DN7 Bucharest-Nadlac or DN1 Bucharest-Bors.

If they sent that traffic count data to Brussels then Brussels probably told them to build most of the roads as Expressways and not as Motorways ...hence the 100kph rated 'motorway' north through the Carpathians mentioned recently. Is the hard traffic counter data on completed motorway sections a state secret or something ????

I don't think they should rename anything, at least not by the moment (for future ones I would use some other numbers).

They should stick to the existent motorway masterplan, as shown below.
If they want to choose what corridor in the plan they should build first, there should be a Government-Opposition-Road experts-European Union agreement so they won't be constantly changing priorities.

Golly that is a large motorway network in that map and the traffic is simply not there to justify much of it.

The EU Court of Auditors had quite a lot to say on Motorway vs Expressway a few months back. The EU does not rule out a motorway on a section that is lightly trafficed right now and would allow a spine of Motorways in a country ( a la Poland) even if the traffic was low on sections of that spine. But the EU wants to see more Expressways and fewer Motorways, in future.

Here is a more accurate map showing where the traffic hotspots were in the Balkans and where motorways are required and in both:

1990



2000

Do you have more traffic data for the region? Because in Bulgaria it is a kind of a state secret I have collected almost all available data in Bulgarian but I didn't know about this map

Sure. That report above is pre EU Accession Time , it was compiled in 2001/2 and just before the infamous A3 Bechtel contract.

You may get more data here from the commissioning organisation.

http://www.internationaltransportfor...Pub/index.html

The full report with the above maps is here and has more 1990 and 2000 era AADT data.
