1% of $ 200 billion = $ 2 billion per year. Can't say that is really that much... Romania has a huge backlog in road construction. Is this 1% achieved by Romanian funding only, and do we have to add EU funding to that, or not?

You have to add EU funding on top of that. Most of the A1 and A2 (Corridor IV) is funded by EU (60-70%). Here's the EU funding for Romanian transportation infrastructure, earmarked for 2007-2013, from the official Transportation Program agreed with the RO gov (p. 84).



As you can see, the amounts increase each year, with more than 1 BIL USD in the coming years, so that's about 3 BUSD/year, at least.

Most of the Gov's money will go to Transilvania motorway, though some will have to also couple with EU funds on Corridor IV.The EU money will go for A1 and A2, as I already mentioned.

PS: I think 1% of GDP for motorways alone is a significant amount, given the crisis and the needs of the budget (Romania also needs to increase the military budget to over 2% in the coming years for the fighter acquisition and other military acquisitions to reform the army in agreement with NATO requirements, etc).

It seems the article I quoted was uncomplete. Here's the complete list of motorway projects goals from the new Governing Program (by 2012!!):


Quote:

 Completion of the motorway sections between Nădlac and Sibiu (349 km) and between Cernavodă and Constanţa, Constanţa by-pass included (74 km) by 2012, all part of the Corridor IV.

 Continuing works and financing for the Târgu Mureş- Borş section of Transilvania motorway (254 de km), while the financing for the section between Târgu Mureş and Braşov (161 km) will have to be redrawn.

 Completion of Bucureşti - Comarnic (110 km), while Comarnic - Braşov (56 km) will be concessioned for completion in 2014.

 Start of works for: A6 Ploieşti - Buzău - Focşani (108 km), part of Corridor IX and for A 5: Focşani - Săbăoani (140 km).

 Start of works for A4: Târgu Mureş - Iaşi (300 km) and for South Motorway (A7): Bucureşti -Alexandria - Craiova (170 km).

 Completion of fesability studies and design for A8 motorway: Lugoj - Caransebeş - Orşova - Drobeta Turnu Severin - Craiova - Calafat, part of Corridor IV B.

 Completion of fesability studies and design for Corridor IX Focşani - Albiţa.

This is a map of the motorways to be completed or U/C by 2012:




Red: completed by 2012.

Pink: U/C by 2012.

Dark Blue: in use.

He said that they could be delivered, if the budget will suffice.

Le Clerk, i have a little correction, the A3 will pass through Zalau and Suplacu de Barcau, not through Alesd as in your pic

Also Radu Berceanu said that in the next 3-4 years the Ministry of Transport won't be able to find money to continue the A3 from Turda to Tirgu Mures / Brasov

He overtook them safely. So what's the problem?

Sure, if you travel locally there is no need to overtake those trucks. But if you have like few hundred kilometers ahead of you, this is the only way not to loose half of the day.

Romanians Highways

Hello everybody

Here is a map that describes better the actual status of the planned and constructed highways in Romania.

I also included this year and 2011 scheduled openings. If anything misplaced please comment. I will keep it updated as the new plans and construction evolves.

I'd say he was driving too fast. And he should loose half a day to get from Nadlac to Bucaresti.

It looks very good and accurate IMO. Thanks.

One observation: Arad-Nadlac will be U/C this year so we might see some deliveries in 2011 as the land there is not complicated.

Also, the very good news is that the ministry of transportation announced that the Comarnic-Brasov section of A3 (the most spectacular section of motorway in Romania, boasting dozens of viaducts and tunnels through the rocky mountains) will be signed this month.

Yes, you are right but I will update it by mid 2010 when we will know for sure. There is also another section of A1 - Deva - Sebes that can be delivered in 2011 but we will wait for some confirmations.

Back to your news - they are signing it with Vinci ?

No, surely in 2011 nothing can be delivered on A1 excepting Arad-Timisoara section.On the other parts, construction company is not even decided, so construction can't start faster than summer-autumn 2010. So even a optimistic person can't say it can be finnished before summer-autumn 2012.

I've read that the ministry of transportation has allocated money to run expropriations on the N section of Bucharest motorway ringroad - A0, to connect A3 to A1. Do you know more about it? When are they going to organise a tender for that section?

We do not know the number but should be A8, and yes, the plan is to connect it up north to Ukraine and south to A2 and further to the Bulgarian border.

Here's a more complete plan for motorways in Romania, including A8:

Are you sure they aren't doing the expropriations for the enlargement of the current ringroad to 2x2? Many journalists confuse these things...
