11, to be more precise. 8 km near Vranje, and 3 km on Novi Sad bypass.
But it doesn't change the sad picture.

And our Romanian friends are right, RO is a big country wtih low starting motorway base from previous period, so they need at least 100 km per year.

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted already. On May 1st CNADNR opened tenders for fesability studies for 10 new sections of motorways, totaling 995 km. The total value of the FS is estimated at 53 milion EUR and will by financed through EU funds. (this is part of the desperate last-minute attempts recently taken by the goverment to avoid losing the EU funds for the 2007-2013 period). These are supposed to be ready in 4 motnhs after the contracts are signed. Also, tenders are being prepared for FS for 7 more sections, totaling 580 km.

The current FS being tenderd are:
- București - Alexandria 85 km
- Alexandria - Craiova 140 km
- Craiova - Calafat 83 km
- Ploiești - Buzău 75 km
- Buzău - Focșani 67 km
- Focșani - Bacău 120 km
- Bacău - Pașcani 95 km
- Pașcani - Siret 100 km
- Brașov - Bacău 170 km
- București - Giurgiu 60 km



This does look a bit like a waste of money, since we won't get to see all these project get built in the 5 years they are valid, but at least we will finally have plans for an actual network, rather than just 3-4 motorways. Besides, we were very close to running out of projects to build in the future (apart from the state funded A3).

CNADNR issued the start of works authorisation for Sebes-Turda motorway (A10), lots 3 (12 km) and 4 (16 km). Lots 1 and 2 will follow shortly.

As I mentioned before, these sections need to be completed by end 2015.

Not that shortly, those lots are still disputed in court. Lot 2 in particular may take several more months until a winner is decided. Plus there's the risk that the tendering procedure could be restarted if things take a turn for the worst

Termenul de realizare e de 22 de luni, 4 luni de proiectare, 18 luni de execuție propriu-zisă. Sper să terminăm până în 31 decembrie 2015
If I got it right, the 22 month for planning and building begin now (today), ain't they? May 2014... 22 month... March 2016... Not December 2015...

Was it a kind of groundbreaking today? May 2014... 18 month... November 2015... Little delay... December 2015?

I think he meant he hoped to be completed by end 2015, even though the contractual deadlines are beyond that deadline. There will probably be pressure on builders to that effect. That's exactly what he said actually.

2 new aerial videos with Romanian motorways:

Timisoara-Lugoj lot 2, construction works just started at the beginning of this year:

Sebes-Sibiu, partially opened, but there is also Orastie-Sibiu lot 3, which is still u/c. Completion of this section was delayed because of landslides (you can see on the video). Estimated completion date: at the end of this year (although many don't believe this will actually happen):

A1 Pecica - Nădlac

The A1 from Pecica to Nădlac is now visible in Google Earth, it has imagery from March 2014.

You can see they didn't do much in the past, just earthworks and some paving here and there. It's notable how they didn't do anything on bridges on this segment. A1 crosses the DJ709J twice but there are no bridgeworks visible. The only engineering object that they worked on appears to be a culvert at the Hungarian border.

By the way, Hungarian M43 is also visible. They aren't advanced into bridge construction either, but they started much later.

CNADNR tenders Suplacu-Bors <60 km> (A3) for estimated EUR 219-260 m. The section is 52% completed.

A1 and A2 motorways will be rehabilitated with EUR 250 m. Works will start next year.

Maybe it's just a fresh layer of asphalt...

A2 is in a pretty bad shape, at least for the first 20 km where there's only concrete slabs.

A1 and the rest of A2 up to Cernavoda are OKish, but not the same quality as the newest motorways.

Well, every road, motorway or not, needs a new surface once in a while. That asphalt, even though high quality, can't last forever.

Hey, sorry for my dumb question but is the Bacau bypass already u/c? When have the works been started?

Quote:
Bacău bypass will be initially built as half-profile motorway (2+1 lanes).
Bacău bypass (17 km half-profile motorway + 13,7 km of connection road)
Expected opening date: late 2015 (source)

Bacau bypass is still in court. We don't have a clear winner yet.
