That's the closest one to an exit, as far as I know. There might be others, closer or further away from the exits, but all of them were on the same location since years ago and none of them is signed on the motorway.

Thanks, good to know for my next journey over the A1. Did anyone drive the new recently opened 1st section near Nadlac already?

Yes, I did. It's just a 26km motorway section on flat area with temporary 100 km/h speed limit and no rest areas or gas stations.

Why 100 km/h?

Because it's not 100% completed yet. Some minor works still have to be done, so there might be working teams on the motorway from time to time.

And again no highway connection to Bulgaria! Why?
It is clear that Romania needs some urgent highway sections, but why not include at least an expressway to Ruse in the long term plans?

I am leaving others more in the know to answer. I think the existing 2x2 road to Giurgiu/Ruse is pretty OK for the mid-term. However, a motorway to Calafat/Vidin is needed more, in the context of an expressway there. I thought the Romanian and Bulgarian governments were to come to an agreement on a continuous motorway to the Vidin/Calafat bridge from the existing networks in both countries.

Also, this is the plan for the following EU financing cycle by 2023, and the traffic to Giurgiu or Calafat is much lower the traffic on other dirrections which are critical. I think this is the real reason. That and the fact that the EU financing is much much lower the current motorway needs.

No they did not.

The Bulgarians are building an Expressway on their side of the bridge and not a Motorway. However Bulgarian Expressways are 120kph while Romanian Expressways are 100kph rated roads. The few that exist that is.


I have no idea what Romania is doing north of Calafat but as there is nothing on this map I assume the safe answer is nothing...and we'll all have to wait for the next 'plan' after this 'plan' which should be due in 3-4 months or so.

What is an "autostrada fazata" in Romania, is a it a (sensible ) half profile route or a (nonsensical) 'coming soon maybe perhaps never' route...like the A3 for example????

"autostrada fazata" is an expressway with the structure of a motorway, which allows for later upgrade. No hard shoulders probably for a start.

I have no clue either if this is a final plan. They are debating it now as though it is final though.

The only way to save money in the mountains is to build a half profile motorway ( which is only usable as a 1+1 really) and single bore tunnels....but perhaps with full profile viaduct foundations in some cases. For either expressway or motorway you need twin bore tunnels otherwise and therefore you save no money long term.

Until the next 'plan' then.

Montana Express will most probably NOT be built in this financial period, simply because it is VERY expensive and allready there is not enough money for half the projects there.
And by the time they get to Montana Express, they'll realise they'd better build a full profile motorway, just as in the case of Pitesti-Sibiu.

There must be a mistake...around 300km worth of a mistake. So that means 2 of those green stretches are to be coloured purple in the end.

But which two??????

That one goes through villages and has zebra crossings on it...

But still much better than what there was before this road was built around 10 years ago.

Pitesti - Sibiu is numbered with a purple DX2.

Numbers I can read
A0: Bucharesti loop
A1: Bucharesti - Pitesti
A1: Sibiu - Nadlac
A2: Bucharesti - Constanta
A3: Bucharesti - Fagares
A3: Turda - Bors
A4: Ovidu - Constanta Port
A5: Brasov - Bacau
A10: Sebes - Turda
A12: Pitesti - Craiova
A : Tg Neamt - Ungheni (marked as "A ")
DX1: Bucharesti - Dr. Tr. Severin
DX2: Pitesti - Sibiu
DX2: Dr. Tr. Severin - Lugoj
DX3: Tg Mures - Tg Neamt
DX4: Turda - Satu Mare - ?
DX5: Buzau - Siret
DX5A: Brasov - Piatra Neamt
DX5B: Suceava - Botosani
DX7: Gaesti - Ploeisti - Galati - Reni
DX7A: Bralia - Focsani

DX6 and DX8 are Ovidu - Bralia and Pitesti - Rasnov, but I can't tell which is which.

I don't know the numbers of Turda - Tg Mures (A), Fagaras - Sibiu (A), the non-DX4 route from Satu Mare to Hungary or Ukraine (DX), spur from DX4 to Baia Mare, spur from DX4 to Bistrita.

Montana Express and Meridional Express appear as motorways, but are probably counted as expressways. However, Meridional Express has already been dropped for an expressway, and replaced for a full motorway, at least in official statements.
