Anyway. Corridor IV no longer exists. It has been renamed.

"Priority Project 7" and there are 30 EU wide priority projects. Here is the map from the EU itself dated May 2013.



Description.

http://tentea.ec.europa.eu/en/ten-t_...ity_project_7/

Full list of 30 PRIORITY projects. The plan is to COMPLETE these by 2020, some are already complete and most are part complete at this stage.

Corridor IV exists.
Pan-European corridors are different from Priority Projects, which are officially in the European Union TEN-T network, while corridors are not. So TEN-T highways and not corridors are who are eligible from EU money and all that stuff. Btw, good map.

Priority Project 7 is a mix of corridors IV and X, Mainly IV.

Another problem in Brussels is that there is no project co ordinator for PP7 especially between Greece Bulgaria and Romania.

An Irishman is in charge of getting the EU cash payouts for Priority Project 1, the alpine railway base tunnels which will swallow EU cash over the next 7 years and more.

Between now and 2015 alone the Brenner Base Tunnel will cost €1.2bn and the EU will fund 40-50% of this €1.2bn. The BBT will have 3 EU funding windows to tap into, very clever that.

The co ordinator even writes a report on his activities every now and then.

2-days old airplane video of the construction site of A1 motorway between Sibiu and Orastie, recorded by the romanian forum user Eurocopter:

Sunt convins ca pana in decembrie vedem Orastie-Cunta finalizat, dar de Saliste-Sibiu inca sunt sceptic.

by the way, that piece of motorway is in a really bad state but views are just spectacular, it was one of the best motorways I had used in terms of sceneries as it's literary cut into mountains with impressive bridges and so on.

Is it clear which motorway stretches will be financed by EU money in 2014-20?

Does Romania have any interest to add Oradea-Arad section to planned motorway network since it's part of TEN-T network? It's probably not very important route for local traffic

The map shows roads - not motorways!

An expressway is planned for that route. It'll probably turn into a motorway in the end.

Can I look up a source telling me about the plans for an Oradea-Arad Expressway, it's not in the CNADNR website:

Arad-Oradea expressway was on the official plans in 2008, but was later abandoned. Here's a map with the planned motorway/expressway network in Transilvania area back in 2008:

Some pictures with the u/c bridge over Mures river near Pecica, Arad county. The bridge and the access roads are financed by the county council.

I already wrote that this bridge is financed by the county council, so it's a bridge on a local county road. It doesn't have anything to do with the motorway construction site that it's nearby.

Main road DN79 Arad-Oradea was reconstructed recently and it's now in a good shape, but it's with only one lane per direction.

Works at the 2 railway overpasses on Arad north bypass are still suspended because of lack of founds from the government. This is mostly because the first stage of construction was founded by the government when the democrats were in power there, but now the socialists are in the head of the government, and as in Arad are mostly voters for the democrats party, now they stopped the works because "lack of founds" (=political reasons).

3. Building a conventional rail(160/200kmh) on the route of Sofia - New Europe bridge(Romania) with a tunnel between ~7-9km.

All have been scraped due to high costs, low traffic, bad demographics in Montana and Vidin region and partly built Hemus motorway[A2].
