a bit of Asia in all that:
-this inauguration ceremony with all those people and flags and happiness looks little bit, hm, Northkorean
-the car pictogram is as interesting as those on Singapore border crossings

I don't have the exact figures, but it's only on about 20 km. And it's 2+1 lanes, not 2+2.

Thanks. I also thought about 2+1. 2+2 would be far to much for a temporary solution but 2+1 sounds down-to-earth.

Yes, it's being enlarged to 2x1 and only on some stretches on the northern side. The southern stretch towards Ramnicu Valcea is not exactly enlargement material.

It's 2x2 on some stretches in the north which are now almost completed . They basically doubled the carriageway.

I will post pictures soon.

From what I have seen, works started early this year, on a 10 km stretch in between Boita and Lazaret (both in Sibiu county) . And that section is getting another carriageway by expanding the road into the river bed. I read they plan to do that for most of DN 7 on the Olt valley.

If they manage to do that at the current pace, it will be an interesting road able to cope with existing traffic. I wonder whether that will impact the proposed motorway on Sibiu-Pitesti which is no 1 priority for the coming motorway projects.

Ok. Waiting for your pics and I'll make a little trip there when I'm in Sibiu next time.

I couldn't see any (road) construction works b/n Sebes and Alba Iulia South one week ago. Just railway construction works. I was too lazy and too tired to drive further north but a colleague told me that there are road constuction works b/n Teius and Alba Iulia. I didn't ask for detail.

I found some old pictures (from 24 May), but relevant for the type of works there, from another Romanian infrastructure forum peundemerg.ro. Pictures are from Lazaret-Boita section (10 km) of DN7.

As you can see, on certain sections - on all from my observations - the extensions are enough for 2x2 road. Currently, most works are over and opening is close - possibly August.



















DN7 goes through many villages, so it will probably not be possible to operate such extensions accross the entire Olt Valley - though I hope they should build some real by-passes for those villages.

That road looks like hell to drive.

I used to always complain about the DN6 but that is way worse.

You might want to resize those. They are nearly 4000px wide.

That was my non-pro prognosis.

BTW. Asphalt there already.

Very very interesting!!

If romanian autorities want to stop people from dying on the road, these 2x1 portions on big roads (like we can find on many other countries) are a great way to make the road safer...

By my calculations, with last Saturday opening, Romania topped 700 km of motorway, and now has 713 km of motorways.

They should also open this year Lugoj-Deva sections of A1 (lots 2 and 4) which means approx 50 km in total.

Next year are due Lugoj-Deva lot 3 (22 km), Sebes-Turda (70 km), and possibly some sections on A3 (on Gilau-Nadasel - 9 km), which means Romania should top 800 km, or even 850.
Chances are we hit 1000 km by 2018 (with a bit of luck in 2017) with the works on completion of Transilvania motorway from Oradea to Tg Mures and hopefully Bacau by-pass.

I managed to take some pictures this morning. This is the section between Boita and Lazaret.


This is the wall they built to extend the road. It is approximately 3 m high.





Asphalt here.









Notice how this section is 2x2: the truck is passing by me on the first new lane, and I am driving on the second new lane. On the right is the old 1x1 road.
