Thanks, I was worried because when I googled I found a (probably old) site that said it might close after 9 pm.

Comarnic-Brasov concession was dropped for the 3rd time !! Again, no financing was available for the consortium. At a final cost of EUR 8.5 billion, when Greece is on the verge of deafault, it is a no brainer.

Now, that is better IMO. They will start by doing the logical thing: building by-passes for the critical/choking parts, such as Comarnic and Busteni, and then hopefully, with budget money, the easier sections such as Comarnic-Busteni and Cristian-Predeal. When more money is available, and the updated FS, the difficult Busteni-Predeal section will be built. This wil take 5 years at best, but it is still good. And the final cost should be no more than EUR 1.5 bilion, give or take.

Change. It's a bad word. They always change the priorities or change the plan. They try it again and fail, try again, fail again. They should do a postive kind of "change" by doing a change in making decisions.

We need a change of government, which is probably the worst we had in at least a decade. Including for infrastructure.

You have these backwards. Busteni-Predeal is the easy one, it's as flat as you can get in the mountainside. The hard ones are Comarnic-Sinaia-Busteni (either a series of many tunnels and bridges or a few long tunnels) and Predeal-Rasnov (big altitude difference on a mountainside, it requires a long tunnel and a really big viaduct). The latter will probably be built much later than everything else, since after Predeal traffic is significantly lower (last resort in the area) and it splits in two directions as well.

I completely agree with the idea of building the Comarnic and Busteni bypasses first, as these are the biggest headaches in the area. But I'm very worried that they might not be to full motorway standard at first, quite possibly not even using the future alignment of the A3. Which would obviously not have much of an impact on the ridiculous traffic amounts that this road sees

I understand your point, but the CNADNR just issued a press release today officially announcing Romania dropped the Comarnic--Brasov concession. In the same document, CNADNR says it plans to start first works on the sections from Brasov and Comarnic, with government money. The other sections appear to be more difficult and need updated FS.

Quote:
Tronsonul de autostradă Comarnic – Braşov este împărţit în 5 sectoare. Sectoarele 1 şi 5 (dinspre Comarnic, respectiv dinspre Braşov, cu o lungime totală de aproximativ 10 km, la care se adaugă şi drumuri de legătură) vor fi scoase la licitaţie, cu finanţare de la Bugetul de Stat.
Pentru sectoarele 2, 3 şi 4, care reprezintă partea cea mai dificilă a proiectului, va fi scoasă la licitaţie actualizarea studiilor geotehnice, cu finanţare de la Bugetul de Stat.

Romanian language is very similar to Italian, it seems.

Le Clerck, that press release doesn't change what medicu said: Busteni - Predeal section is easier to be build that Comarnic Nord - Sinaia - Busteni or Predeal - Rasnov sections.

And CNADNR said today only BS to ease the news of PPP cancellation. I find it hard to believe that they will start any work around Comarnic soon.

Hi everyone,

Is there anyone here who knows better than me the region in the south of Timisoara?

This week-end I need to drive from Arad to a small town called "Sasca Română" in judet Caraş-Severin.

According to the romanian roads quality map and Google Maps, I have 2 options :


(You can click on the picture)

The second one is good until serbian border (I already drove it) but I'm a bit feared by the Moravita-Oravita section who appears in red on the quality map and seems not really good on Street View. But according to Google Maps this is also the shortest and the fastest solution, so this is the one I would choose despite the bad road section...

I didn't say medicu was wrong. I only said what they planned to start with, irrespective how difficult/easy the section was.

Even the proposed by-passes are difficult. We will see from the FS s they are tendering now.

It actually is very similar, not only seems to be. Most Romanians can read or understand most Italian without ever learning it.

We drove this section in 2011, on our 'Danube trip' to Orsova. I recall the road as being ok, it's just a bit smaller. I don't know what changed over the past 4 years.

I would choose also that road, although the other one (Resita - Anina - Oravita) goes through a very nice scenery. But I suppose you're going to visit Cheile Nerei (Nera Gorge) and for that I envy you (went there in 2008 and 2010). Make sure that you visit Ochiul Beiului, Cascada Beusnita and "La Tunele" area.

The only alternative is this https://goo.gl/maps/9H25k
Could take longer, depending on queues at borders, at Naidas it shouldn't take long though.

I'm not sure how much time you have.
I would drive the one through Serbia one way and return via Anina and Resita (great scenery there).
