Yeah, sorry, I meant Internet Explorer. I also have Mozzila installed but do not use it that often. I like Chrome very much for its layout but I have the feeling it's moving slower than IE especially with pages containing a lot of pictures.

You are right. Thanks.

Back to my question - do you know any details or have any related maps?

I think a direct link between A3 and Fundeni Road would be very-very-very useful!

Greetings from Canada to my fellow contrymen and European neighbors...

I have just joined Skyscraper City and a few hours ago I caught up to this thread...

I have to say lots of things going on in Romania at the moment, and I'm glad to see that.

First and foremost, I miss my home very much, I grew up in the city Braşov and I left overseas with the family at age ~14. I have been back in visit 3 times so far. Not as much as I would like, but oh well.

Now I now I might be pages late, but I wanna tell you guys about DN2. Back in 2005 I was involved in a severe accident with a "combine" (large farm vehicle thats as big as a lorry, "combina" in romanian). It was coming out from a dirt road just outside this village close to Roman. The driver was trying to cross the road to the other side, and he didnt even have a driver's licence, just a permit of somekind. It could have been way worse than it was, but thanks to my aunt's quick reflexes I was spared. It was at night and the large vehicle had no lights whatsoever.

Just one example why a motorway (freeway) is needed from North to South in Moldova. If there was one, then there would be no need to accelerate accessively and carelessly to try to get somewhere and not take the whole day. You would also might not find as many cars driving on the emergency lane. Let's hope

Hai Noroc and let's hope for the best to come

These first four pictures of the viaduct look very eerie and mysterious. Especially in the third pic, because of the fog, it looks as if the viaduct is coming from nowhere, destination unknown.

Does anybody know if there are any plans to renovation of CB (Centura Bucuresti), or
upgrade it to 2x2? The south part of CB I was travelling few times is horrible. And that
rule about priority for those travelling to/from the city (at crossroads), it makes no sense
for me...

Well, the beltway is being upgraded to a 2x2, but only some northern sections have been completed, and the rest is going to take forever.

northern part between DN7 and DN2 is in work right now, and will be finnished in 2010, with overpasses in 2011.for other parts, like for example south section between A1 and A2, works should start in 2010. all intersections will be 2-level and there will be no priority problem whatsoever in 2012 or 2013, when they will finnish works.

An interesting article on the motorway plans of the new government after recent elections (Google translated):

Quote:
Government will propose a national pact for motorways, financed by at least 1% of GDP/yearly

Government will propose a national pact for the construction of highways, financed with at least 1% of GDP, including projects undertaken
to be completed by 2020 and assumed to be a commitment to consistency and continuity of funding at the level required under governmental programming.

Document belonging to future Cabinet, obtained by MEDIAFAX, provides also increase the warranty period of the work done for improving transport infrastructure, rebuilding infrastructure railway simultaneously with the road infrastructure so that the heavy freight traffic to once again become attractive to rail transport, and also seaports infrastructure development , so that Romania becomes the EU's eastern maritime gateway.

Improving traffic conditions on the river's Romanian Danube in Europe, airport infrastructure development, including in areas of tourism activity, providing a European quality standard by 2012 for 80% of road network, national reduction in the number of victims of accidents road traffic, railway speed increase on average by 25% and reduction of movement time by 50% compared to the current trains passenger and freight trains and eliminating parking on border are other priorities set out in the government program.

Executive shall also proposes the establishment of a fair collection taxes on road infrastructure on a 'pay and How to use "and collect a high percentage of these charges, reorganize construction and infrastructure maintenance road transport by separating the National Company Motorways and National Roads activities highways, roads national and ring roads, improvement of legislation on terms and conditions for participation in tenders for work necessary transport infrastructure improvements, changes law on relocating utilities to achieve motorways and ring roads, involving owners these utilities aiming at meeting time and costs minimum leakage, changing laws to obtain various opinions to work for improving infrastructure transport so as to ensure minimum time to obtain them.

Reconstruction of Bucharest North Station by turning the adjacent area into shopping centers, with works tendered internationally, funding for Targu Mures-Bors portion (254 km) of highway Transylvania (total 415 km), with that for portion between Targu Mures and Brasov (161 km) to identify other funding solutions and implementation, complete the section of highway Bucharest - Comarnic (110 km), with the section Comarnic - Brasov (56 km) to be made by concession with completion in 2014 and building a bridge over the Danube - Black Sea area Agigea to make contact with the A2 motorway and belt level highway for Constanta .
Source

No news unfortunately on A4.

The good news is that they are planning to finish about 600 km of motorway in the coming 4 years.

BTW: The bridge for A2 over the Danube Canal is U/C now.
