And yes, 10 km of A1 near Lugoj can't be used because there is no proper exit at the western point of it. It will be opened when A1 Timisoara-Lugoj lot 2 will be completed (works just started on that section and will end at the end of 2015).

Bonjour, Roumanie!

Quelqu'un peut m'expliquer où est planifiée et où va aller l'Autoroute A6?

Bravo pour A1, dans quelques ans, peut-être complet

what is "deadline for construction: 2016"

Yes. And that may be unrealistic. It means 3 years of construction if they would start right away. Which may be doable if the terrain is easy, but this is difficult terrain with several tunnels. It is known that the technical installations of tunnels could take as much as 12 months to implement and test. Not to mention there is hardly any experience in Romania with tunnel safety systems, which makes the project more vulnerable to risk.

Most recent tenders in Poland have a deadline of 2017 and these are in substantially easier terrain.

Vinci and Strabag are among the most experienced builders in Europe, and they'll certainly pull to finish ASAP to start cashing in the tolls.

I'd be a little worried about that! Although I understand this section does need to be built asap it does seem a little unrealistic

They'll have a 30-year concession on their own job. If they make a poor job, they'll cash in a poor to nil toll.

Now that Sebes is entirely bypassed by A1 the queues there (DN1/DN7) are now a thing of the past?

Yes, they are. I am happy for the people who live in Sebes because their town is now empty of trucks and transit cars.

Here is a selection of the best pictures with the recently opened sections of A1 motorway between Orastie and Sibiu. You can check all the pictures on the A1 motorway thread from the Romanian forum.

© Pictures belong to the original posters. None of them is shot by me.

Opening ceremony near Sibiu:





Italian flag because lot 4 was built by the Italian company Astaldi:



Entrance to the first motorway tunnel in Romania:





Near Sebes, few minutes/hours before opening:



Drivers celebrate the opening of A1 motorway:



Sebes bypass, 1 hour after traffic opening:



A picture from Unirea newspaper:



Look at all this traffic:

Sebes-Turda motorway (70 km) tender contractors were selected today apparently, so that makes 3x Christmas presents.

We'll learn more in the coming days. Works will be financed from EU and gov funds.
