(Sorry for the off-topic )
I made the same last year in June. I chose Vidin-Calafat-Timisoara instead of Belgrade - Subotica. Just to vary the routes and see something different (to see the new Danube bridge also). In financial terms there are hardly any differences. 6€ for bridge fee and 5 € for the vignette make same price as the total motorway fees in Serbia. The shorter distance via Serbia (by ca.50 km) in terms of fuel costs is compensating by the slower speed in Romania (lower consumption).

I'm curious how much time it will take you to drive Sofia - Timisoara via Vidin as well as Timisoara - Budapest (until ring road) via A1/M43 border crossing in late July During the summer I might do this route southbound.

Okay, that's interesting!

Outlook of motorway sections to be started

A3: Ogra - Iernut 3.6km ( ? 2015 to ? 2016) - project - map
A3: Iernut - Chetani 17.9km ( ? to ? ) - project ? - map
A3: Chetani - Campia Turzii 15.7km ( ? 2015 to ? 2016) - project - map
I think there will be no interchange at Ogra? OSM does not indicate one. If there's no interchange, the 3.6km lot 1 of section 2A, Iernut-Ogra, must be opened with lot 2, Ogra-Ungheni.
The section lengths refer to the contract but my list is sorted by opening dates which means, the "final" section lengths begin and end at interchanges.
I guess the interchange near Chetani will be called Ludus, please refer to OSM. Ungheri will get two interchanges, the lot boundary should be at the airport interchange.

A3: Campia Turzii – Ludus 16km (2015 to 2016/17) – ? – map
A3: Ludus – Iernut 18km (2015 to 2016/17) – ? – map
A3: Iernut – Ungheni-Airport 14km (2015 to 2016/17) – ? – map
A3: Ungheni-Airport – Targu Mures 4.5km (2015 to 2016/17) – ? – map


A3 section Mihaesti - Nadaselu (km 8+700 - km 25+500) is also tendered but there's no interchange at all. That means, construction of the section could begin but the section cannot be opened without the next section. I guess the next interchange should be near Zimbor (source: OSM)!?

A3: Zimbor – Nadaselu ~30km (2015/16 to ?) – ? – map


In addition, another section where construction works should/could begin "soon":

A7: Bacau-North – Bacau-South 17km (2015 to 2017) [1st c/w]– ? – map

I'll add the project to the list - please refer to the link in my signature - when construction works will be reported here.

Yes, no I/C at Ogra, and yes, probably Ludus is a better name for the other interchange.

By the way, Strabag is bragging about A3, Ungheni - Ogra, although contract was signed some months ago.

A3, Ungheni - Ogra, can't Ungheni be changed as well? There is Ungheni a/d Prut, beyond Iasi, and I always thought that border town was being referred to

I don't think so. This Ungheni is well known, at least in Transilvania, mainly because of this crazy intersection. Over there main national road, DN13, meets county road DJ151D which serves as a bypass for Targu Mures for those travelling between Brasov and Cluj, and also meets DJ151B, the main road towards small town of Tarnaveni. A recipe for disaster, which makes that small village to be known to everybody.

Funny thing is that A8, Targu Mures - Iasi, will be practicaly a conection between Ungheni (RO) and Ungheni (MD).

Ok. It Seems plausible as one can see at the end of the video. There's only a very short distance to DN1F. I guess the temporary slip road is not at the end of the section but about 2km east of it (km 23.5)!? Please refer to the map. The road also ends there in the animation though!?!?!

Depends on what you consider to be U/C. Some might say that preliminary works (archaeology, demining, seting up head-quarters, designing, etc...) are to be consider, other might say that real construction starts only when excavation starts.

Rumors say that A10, lot 1 and 2 needed some environmental agreement renewed, and that paper work was finished this week.

That's why I wrote I have to see it in person .

Seriously, I know that it's difficult to define. I usually count earthworks or brigde construction but not clearance. On the other hand, I usually get worse info of other countries' projects, so I'm happy that we can discuss details like this .

I'll probably be just 2km away from lot 1 in late June. So why not to check how it looks like .

Alba - Iulia, Rapa Rosie or Ciugud (don't have photo for that small village, only info - is probably the best rural village in Roumania in matter of european funds using for local development)?

Today I took few pictures of A1 motorway, section between Arad and Pecica (map). This motorway section is almost completed. The opening should be in about 1 month.

Slip road from Arad bypass to Arad-Nadlac motorway:



Entering Arad-Nadlac motorway:





More work needs to be completed nearby Pecica exit:



Bonus picture: waste of money. One of the signs was installed by company Alpine (who went bankrupt and abandoned the works at 85% completion rate), and the other was newly installed by company Astaldi, who is completing the works now:



You can see more pictures here.

Usually there is ONE place to set the sign in the project. Strange situation

GM suggests that there is a roundabout there now. Is this really the case?

Indeed it is. It has just recently been rebuilt. Quite a funny looking roundabout, too

WTF is going on?
Couldn't the new company (Astaldi) just remove the old sign and keep the new one?

This is ridiculous!

Exit is 2000 m, nobody will notice it is only 1 998 m

Curiously Budapest is signed on one instead of Szeged! Maybe required new sign to meet new standards?

Does anyone know what time the border crossing at Nadlac closes for the night in the summer? I've googled but I can't find an exact time.
Thanks
