They intend to build an Expressway in that direction and not a full Motorway from the last map I remember seeing around here a few months ago.

Romanias first priority is 1 or 2 expensive sections through the Carpathinans to connect its own major cities to each other and to its main trading partners to the west.

These will not be cheap. The Expressways to the various corners of Romania will not be complete before 2030 earliest and the plan is quite extensive.

I hope it is a priority to Romanian gouvernment. The highway between Chisinau and Bucaresti is also a European Corridor:

But shouldn't Romania be strengthening ties with Western Europe and not Russia? Because road to Chisinau is also the road to Moscow.

The solution to this issue would be the reunification of Romania (with what was left from Moldova), following the German model.

It's a long way to it...

And what to do with Transnistria? Attach it to Ukraine, Romania or Russia?

Transnistria has been a de facto independent state for about 25 years. The people there want to remain independent and not be ruled by anyone else. Why would you want to attach them to another country? They seem quite able to look after their road infrastructure on their own -- better than Moldova anyway.

I have read it the news that they changed their flag to the Russian tricolour.

Cyprus is in EU even if the TRNC (northern part of the island) is not controlled by the greek cypriot government.

Everything is possible in politics.

A1 Pitești - Sibiu

Construction of Sibiu-Pitesti highway in Romania to start in two years

The planner who will carry out the feasibility study for the Sibiu-Pitesti highway will be selected in January, and construction work could begin in the next two years, said the Transport Minister Ioan Rus, cited by local Mediafax.
Full report: http://www.romania-insider.com/const...-years/137938/

I'm in the 'let's wait and see' mode for this one. We've heard this before.

It's pretty much bogus talk from a goverment that's rapidly losing credibility after the elections...

The fesability study for Pitesti-Sibiu could have a winner anounced in January/February, after that there would probably be a few months lost in court until the winner is finally decided. Presuming actual designing works are started in the summer, after 4 months the results should be ready for Pitesti-Curtea de Arges section and Sibiu-Boita (the easier parts). The rest should take a full year to be ready. After a few months the tender for the construction itself might start and could take up to a year (these will be high value and difficult contracts), not including claims in court which themselves could take another year. So in the best case scenario, there might be a chance that the easier parts could be U/C in 2017, but more likely many months will be lost until a winner is decided in court, especially since in that period there won't be much else being tendered. The hardest sections, in the mountainous river valley and in the unstable hills of the Topolog valley, will take a lot longer to be decided and built

Yes, i fully agree to talk about motorways again.

I travelled to Sibiu just days before (12.-15.12.).
So my impressions are quite fresh, though personal.

Compared to the difficult landscape the new built motorway is very flat and you feel to drive almost straight foward. If you look to the map and see the turns it takes, you could not fit that together. The radiuses are very big.

Its also true that you have no visibility triangulars like it is at M43 for example. If you use the left lane at high speed, it feels narrow, because the barrier is close.

But as long as the motorway is not very full, thats no real problem. You get used to it. As there are few exits, its no use for most drivers to use the motorway. Its mostly trucks there.

All exits had street lights, which was very nice. Maybe thats necessary to awake drivers Much destruction was already done by accidents. The middle barrier seems not able to stop a truck in rage. I dont know how long they wait to repair such things, maybe its enough to put some poles there in their view.

Except for one all service areas were closed. So as it was told here, you get no fuel, no toilet, etc. But that was okay if you knew it before. But i should add that you could not even make a stop there. The parking lots are ready, but even the deceleration lane is blocked. These signs and poles were very close to the right lane, so i one time nearly hit it. I also saw people going backward at the acceleration lane to use the servie area for a stop.

There were sereal works done, which are not such intense secured like in western europe. I thought, that they just opened the autobahn as early as possible. But afterwards especially they installed a sign over the street while it was fully opened. Any german security manager would die of fear, because sth. might fall down.

The deva exit is the first one, so most in use. The brigdge crossing the mures there is in bad condition, if you have in mind how short its in use Also you have to make a U-Turn to acess the motorway from west. But if you look at the remains of accidents that seems to be a good solution. Also the number of roundabouts grows steadily. Thats a good thing for people who love their life

The nadlac-pecica section also seemed to be worked on around the clock. As it should open today, which is ambitious. The bridge over the national road did not have railing when i drove under it three days ago

But if there is more time things take longer... Everything i could see was close to the finish. Also the road from last exit at romanian side to the village of nadlac seemed to be ready.

The sibiu-medias national road was under construcion in 2012. Now its really nice driving there. Two years ago i felt that almost all national roads were already renewed or just under construction. It seems to me that now most are done.

I hope one day the route over prislop starting in borsa will also repaired. because its getting worse and worse. In 2011 you could not go faster than 30km/h over long sections. When i stopped i found a screw in my tire. Usually you easily find out if you are loosing air, but if you go such slowly its already to late and the tire was in very bad situation. Since than it was going so bad, that romanians told me not to use the street. And much must happen until a romanian driver comes to this thought, that a street should be avoided

The Arad ring road is u/c at some spots, i did not use it. Two years ago it was in bad condition, and it seems not to be very popular. I am interested in the progress there.

There were much other things, but that does not fit to the romanian section but to the hungarian, slowakian and czech one

Today 26 km of A1 between Nadlac and Pecica have been opened in Romania. You cannot cross the border yet on the motorway because the Hungarian side is not yet ready, but it's a progress.

So Timisoara is approximately 6 months away from being connected to the European motorway network. Congratulations!

That is not anymore the TEN-T network in Romania. This is the latest EU sanctioned TEN-T network in Romania, which is also agreed with by the Government. Sibiu-Pitesti is top priority for the upcoming financing.



And this is the motorway programming for EU funding:




You will see that the entire EU funding for Romania for 2014-2020 will be eaten up by Pitesti-Sibiu and Bucharest by-pass south. The rest of core and comprehensive are planned after 2020. This is pretty gloomy prospect. I hope it does not stay like this and new funding is found/committed from the budget/private investors for other sections for construction in the coming years. We will also most likely have a change of government next year, from a socialist to a liberal one, and investment in infrastructure should increase. The socialist government has made incredible cuts from infrastructure investment, especially from motorways. I think it's less than half what it used to be during Boagiu's times. And that shows in lack of new projects and the dearth of openings this year. And the coming ones.

LE: some of the Sebes-Turda motorway sections will also be funded from EU programming by 2020. And, if we are lucky, we may get some money from Junker's financial crisis EUR 315 B investment plan which Romania submitted about EUR 100 B in projects, mostly motorways. If we get EUR 2-3 B to fund Cluj-Tg Mures-Iasi, that would be pretty cool, and very helpful, but we'll see.

The ruble is a pile of toilet paper there too, and the impact of the Russian financial crisis in Transnistria will be serious. They are now chasing to buy not only (the scarce) EUR and USD but also Romanian Leu to shield themselves from the mother Russia currency of international circulation and reserve which will slam the Greenback together with the Dragon's Yuan. But it should first convince the Russians to use it as a currency of their own reserve. Anyway, THAT is still easy. Watch out for next year plunge in Russia's GDP probably to the likes of 2009 of approx 10%. Adjustments will be made in social spending. Huge ones. Transnistria will be placed aside with the entire Customs Union expansion plans, which are also falling apart together with Russia's economy.

In my opinion, Moldova should adopt the Romanian leu (this has been considered some time ago) before the financial tsunami from Russia will hit there. It will shield them from an impending chaos. And will boost trade which is mostly done with Romania anyway, following Russian sanctions. And will cause a restructuring of their banking system which is mostly Russian mafia owned, and is used mostly for money laundering instead of fueling the economy with cash. Most probably that will also become the de facto currency of Transnistria considering the fact that the Ruble lost all credibility, and will help reintegration IMO.

Anyway, end of rant.

The southern Bucharest bypass is not part of the TEN-T network (see map) but EU funded with highest priority?
