Ok, thank you! I think that I will choose this one.

Ok, thanks!

Not exactly, in first place I will go there for a mountainbike race (Cheile Nerei Mountainbike Race 2015), but yeah, it's a great occasion to visit this park who seems very beautifull despite the fact that tomorrow will be a rainy day...

Thank you for these places, I will look at them!

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).
Thank you!

It seems a great alternative, but I already had problems with Moravita border control (with romanian border patrol), the last time they kept me for around 20 minutes because they didn't recognize my car French registration papers (which are old and on the previous format because my car has never been sold and has 12 years, but these papers are good), they clearly been overzealous or maybe they just tried to occupy their time (I was the only one at the border control...) This is the only time I've got such problems with borders control...

So I really prefer a bad road than be restrained by such incompetent...


Yes, on the return I think that I will drive through Anita and Resita !

In Resita, as any other infrastructures enthusiast, you must visit steam engine museum.

PPP consortia should contain a finance partner, usually a bank. Vinci Strabag and Aktor were the only named companies in the winning consortium.

In future they should have a bank member to stop the chronic timewasting that went on here. This non process took 2 years. No Irish PPP has been shortlisted without a bank...and of course no consortia have won a PPP contract without a bank.

It's not that the companies couldn't find the money to build the thing. Just look at the names, they are all large companies, after all. The Romanian goverment couldn't find a way to justify the huge bill they would have to foot (8.5 BILLION euros for a 30 year period) and the huge budget deficit this project would run on our economy. The EU, IMF said no to any extra budget deficit allowance (we're still being monitored because of the large loan we have to take during the crisis), the public opinion went completely apeshit when the cost went public, the ministers that made the project happen are under criminal prosecution (for unrelated reasons) and are eventually going to jail, so this whole PPP/concessioning idea is truly dead and gone forever.

CNADNR has already published the (pretty poor) contingency plan for making the Prahova Valley portion of DN1 acceptable for current traffic values in the near future, and ministers are talking about how much of a priority A1 Pitesti Sibiu is and always has been

Finaly the road between Oravita and Moravita was bad in most of the parts, but there was almost no traffic and by driving calmly it's okay (I was angoying the magnificient storks who were in almost every small city on this road ! ), and it's way way faster than the other way through Resita who is nice and with a road of quality, but much longer.

The worst part was the small roads through Sasca Montană, they are in a such bad state...

I always wonder why don't they just build with budget money the critical section Comarnic-Busteni at motorway level (which admitedly may be the most difficult) but which would not cost more than Basarab Overpass in Bucharest. It'd be probably mostly tunnels, the updated FS is available, so they only need to allocate some EUR 150 m and contract a good tunnel builder. Building that section could leave the rest of the motorway to Brasov for later on as the worst traffic would be served.

Some new pictures from the future highway border control on roumanian A1/ hungarian M43:







More pictures here and here. So far we still hoping for an opening untill 15 July, altough right nor Roumania is without a prim-minister (and also without minister for transportation and infrastructure) so we don't really know who will do the honour.

Is there any estimated opening date? Together with the section at the Hungarian border or earlier?

Hello!
On August i will go to Bulgaria. Which way will be better to Giurgiu:
From A1 in Vanatori Mici DN61 to Ghimpathi and next DN5b to Giurgiu
or
Centura Bucuresti South (not good condition?)
or
Center od Bucuresti

Centura Bucuresti North from A1 to A2 is over 2x2 ?

If i were you, i would go through Bucharest. Of course, it depends on the time of day. If you catch rush hour, it would be a lost bet.
The north ring road of Bucharest is only about 50% 2x2.

From Unirii square,go south,past Carol park and straight down the E85.(single lanes to start with then double lanes for most of the journey).

With the new A1 border crossing, has it been built for both Romanian and Hungarian controls, or just Romanian?

Although it's very obvious that they're trying to spend as little money as possible on it!

The control area is built on the Romanian side with Romanian money. There will be both controls (Hungary/Romania) in this area.

Few years later when the motorway between Oradea (RO) and Debrecen (HU) will be completed, the common control area will be built by Hungary.

It shows their very little consideration for accurate maps as this portion is still closed for now, and they can give wrong directions to someone who use Apple Maps...

Also these maps are looking as good as those from OSM !
