BTW: this PPP bodes well for the upcoming PPPs to be awarded early next year: A0 south and Craiova-Pitesti. It's gonna be an awesome new year for motorway projects.

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.

Chris, very correct.

18 tunnels
3 long tunnels
53 viaducts


I think we will be extremely happy if everything is going to be finished by end of 2018

I am sorry this date is completely crazy. wnoder why this is even published...
I understand there are lots of disclaimers in a contract which protect future revenues.

... and since they are most expierienced they will keep this 30 year PPP period. no matter what is the completion year.

I think it is good toobe constructively skeptical, and most would say this is a crazy deadline, including myself. But then again, these are companies which have half a century experience, and tens of billions in yearly turnover from complex construction projects. We'll see, but even if it is completed 1 or 2 years later, it is still fabulous compared to doing nothing.

Here are some screen captures of a webcam installed in the town of Sebes, which was a big problem for the traffic. The pictures are from yesterday, before and after opening of it's motorway bypass:

Pretty much everyone on this forum disagrees with the proposed completion date. Our prime-minister said that he would not run for the next elections if the date is not met .

Still, it's safe to say that some segments of the project could be ready by that date, since there are some easy stretches like the part that bypasses Rasnov and Cristian, or the part between Azuga and Predeal, which have no tunnels, very few bridges and run on a relatively flat terrain, with few groundworks to be done. It might even be possible for Comarnic-Sinaia to be done, since it's easier that the next stretches near Sinaia and Busteni, with long tunnels, but still quite complicated.

We'll see in the next few years, which will be very very interesting for us romanians: the first mountain motorway and the first long motorway tunnels.

IMO, Comarnic-Sinaia is the most important section of all the motorway. If they open that first, it's going to be like the Sebes by-pass now!

Personally, I think that Busteni is the worst bottleneck in the entire stretch, followed by Sinaia. Although I said it would be easier to open Comarnic-Sinaia first, I think this would seriously agravate the traffic problems on the Prahova valley, until the rest of the motorway to Predeal is finished. I think it will be a tough choice for Vinci, Aktor and Strabag. Open a partial motorway and reap some early taxes, or wait 'till the entire Predeal-Comarnic stretch is done, and ensure they don't cause complete gridlock, which would include their own construction trucks. Hard one

Open Comarnic-Sinaia first, but no trucks allowed (during the day) until the rest is completed.

But the constructors trucks still have to drive on the same DN1 as the other cars. And for a project as big as this one, 2-3-400 trucks can work every day on the construction site & the nearby roads... and if you add this ones to the current cars traffic then we have a problem.

The minister gave an interview today:

1. Romania inaugurated 115 km of motorway this year, and completed tender procedures for 205 km this year.
2. Next year Romania will inaugurate 100 km of motorway (Nadlac-Arad lots1&2, Orastie-Sibiu lot3, Timisoara-Lugoj lot2).
3. Winners on Sebes-Turda motorway (70 km) already established, will be announced on Monday, and must be completed by Dec 2015 to cash in the EU money.
4. Brasov-Sibiu (121 km) is financible from the EU at 85% - FS is valid and needs only to be brought up-to-date. Works to start in 2015 and could be completed easily by 2017.
5. FS for Sibiu-Pitesti will be retendered next year, works to start in 2017.
6. Bucharest-Ring A3 motorway will be opened by end this year.
7. Campia Turzii-Tg Mures to be tendered in Jan next year, works from EU money, completion Dec 2015.
8. Bucharest Ring north completed in Dec 2014.

Let's analyse it a little:

Nadlac - Arad lot 1: tender completed, contract awarded, but not signed yet. It will be signed soon, and works should last a year. Yes, it can be opened at the end of next year.

Nadlac - Arad lot 2: construction site abbandoned at 85% of works completed. Just about 3-4 month of work remaining. They promised to re-tender it by September 2013, but nothing happened yet. If they will re-tender it soon, and award it without appeals in court that last too long, it can be completed by the end of next year.

Orastie-Sibiu lot3: works started ~2 years ago, but there were problems with landslides. It seems that they reached an agreement with the constructor to continue the works and to modify the project according to the situation. It can be completed by the next year.

Timisoara-Lugoj lot2: this I'm afraid it's a big lie. The contract for construction was signed this month, after about 2 years of tender, re-tender and a lot of appeals in court. The contract was signed and it says that the winning company has 6 months for design and 18 months for actual construction. This is a total of 24 months = 2 years, which means it will be ready by the end of 2015, so not next year.

99% of the new motorway construction in Europe takes more time than that. I'm afraid it is unrealistic, even in easy terrain.

Even in the Netherlands and Denmark (which generally have Europe's fastest motorway projects) it takes more time to construct a new motorway than 18 months.

AFAIK, we had a case of a motorway completed in 18 months.
