Our roads are crowded with cars. This means that it's not enough to buy a lot of cars to have a car number/population ratio high, but also to invest in infrastructure that's decent for that amount of cars.

FYI

Scheduled completion of M43: 30 Sept 2014.



Since the connecting Romanian A1 is behind schedule the Hungarian government is planning to build a 2 km bypass road east of Nagylak which would drive the traffic directly to the old border crossing.

Thank you for the info

On the Romanian side, the contract for the border motorway was signed, and deadline is December 2014. Unfortunately, works haven't started yet

One question: I see on the map you posted that Nagylak 2-km bypass will be on the east side of the village. I think this is wrong and that it will be on the west side, because on the east side there is no space to connect it with the border facility. Check Google Maps.

The article says the planned road may go along the "Élővíz-focsatorna" visible also on the Google maps shot you linked.

That's weird, because that would mean it would also "bypass" the Hungarian customs. Or maybe they will have an agreement and make all the controls at the Romanian border booths.

I thought it's already being done like that, like at Ártánd/Borș. At least for cars if I remember right.

Checks are done at the border booths of the country you will entry in.

For direction Romania -> Hungary, checks are done at the Hungarian booths.
For direction Hungary -> Romania, checks are done at the Romanian booths.

Checks are done in the same place by both Romanian and Hungarian border officers.

Some pictures shot on A1 motorway construction site, between Orastie and Sibiu, lot 4 (Astaldi). Pictures are from last year. Now this motorway is open.

Great news

It seems that Astaldi-Max Boegl started working on Nadlac-Arad, lot 2 (ex-Romstrade lot, contract canceled at about 30% completion). This lot is the one that will be joined at the border with Hungarian M43. Deadline for completion of works is December 2014.

Primele utilaje.

Doar atat deocamdata, este posibil sa mai primim poze, sa vedem. Oricum importanta este vestea, teoretic avem sperante sa termine anul asta daca vor lucra exemplar, asa cum au mai demonstrat cei de la Astaldi si Max Boegl.

The contracts for the segment were canceled in November 2012. It took quite a bit of time to retender this project. In Poland they usually do it within 6 months.

I agree with you that the re-tendering process is taking too much.

Nadlac-Arad, lot 2, was formerly awarded to Alpine, but contract was canceled in July 2013 after Alpine went bankrupt (works were 85% completed). They still haven't started the tender for a new constructions company to complete this section. After the tender will be started, they still have to allow the companies some time to make the offers, then they have to analyse them, choose a winner. After that comes the funny part with appeals in court etc. There's still much to be done for starting the works again on lot 2.

With Nadlac-Arad LOT 2 is more complicated. It's not only the retendering procedure they have to go through, but also the insolvency procedure of Alpine first, which takes also lots of time. Bad luck.

Romania is the most rural country in the EU, and we should admit that is reflected into car ownership.

I enjoy your sarcasm, but you know how that census was made, and that a lot of persons that live abroad are registered as living in Romania. What I wanted to say is that the corelation between the number of cars and the results of the census ist not that easy to be made... and the rest is history

Unfortunately a bridge collapsed in Romania yesterday. It's a 80-meters long and 40 years old bridge on a secondary county road (DJ - drum judetean). Location of the bridge: http://goo.gl/maps/OVBZD

It looks like one of the support piers collapsed. There was no traffic on it (live load) when it happened?
