One more thing. My feeling is that they are preparing DN7 between Boita and Racovita (37 km) to take over traffic from the first and easier sections of Sibiu-Pitesti motorway due to start next year or even this year if there are no court disputes for the tender works: Sibiu-Boita and Pitesti-Curtea de Arges-Racovita, including traffic from the construction vehicles. The current project of expansion works is in between Boita and Cainenii Mari (19 km). So there's about 18 km left of more works to start.

Boita-Racovita section of motorway will be the most challenging as it goes through the narrow Olt valley in parallel with this section under upgrade. So it will probably be opened last and in the meanwhile this road will take over the motorway traffic coming from Sibiu and Pitesti. Exciting times and pictures are coming for the following years !

I am on A2 motorway on the way to the Black Șea coast and there are Slovak, Austrian, GB, Polish, EST, and FR number plates. Probably going to the șea as myself.

So, construction of the Pitesti-Sibiu part is going to commence normally, right?

What do you mean? Construction will start for most parts if not all next year. Nobody knows when it will be ready, but probably the sections Sibiu-Boita and Pitesti-Racovita will be ready by 2018.

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.

==>

Construction works of most sections are announced to be started next year. Nobody knows when the entire motorway will be completed but the sections Sibiu-Boita and Racoviata-Pitesti could be completed by 2018 in best case.

--------------------

Where does Sibiu-Boita section end, north or south of Boita? (with or w/o Olt bridges; see map)

In a pessimistic scenario. The standard works schedule for all Sibiu-Pitesti lots is 3 years. But I would say the Boita-Racovita section may take more than that. Or not.

My understanding is it will end at Vestem, where the future connection with the Sibiu-Brasov motorway will be located.

Ok but why do you call Sibiu-Vestem section Sibiu-Boita section?

In addition, I don't think that opening just Sibiu-Vestem section would help anyone except the westernmost section of Sibiu-Brasov motorway (or expressway) would be opened at the same time.

I think mimimum a Talmaciu bypass must be built. That means, a temporary A1 motorway end at the future Talmaciu i/c is also not a noticible improvement because only the roundabout at DN1/DN7 junction would be bypassed for DN7 traffic but DN1 traffic to Brasov would still leave A1 at Sibiu-South (which is no problem at all because there's already a Vestem bypass). But DN7 traffic would still drive through Talmaciu. It even had to turn left in Talmaciu to reach the future i/c which is worse than the status quo.

Because that's how I read it referred to by the ministry, while according to initial plans the first lot was Sibiu-Vestem. It is possible that there are some changes to the lots through the new SF. But we shall see.

Your suggestion for a by-pass for Talmaciu makes a lot of sense

According to Wikipedia, there was a possibility that this part was going to be substituted by the A3 and the A10, so I thought that there was a problem with that part......but as it seems, things are going to be OK with it
Oh, btw how many kms are these two parts?

The Serbian-Romanian border at Moravita/Vatin (on the road between Timisoara and Vrsac) which I have crossed at least 100 times will occasionally ask for the vignette (around 5% of the time, but this is increasing over the years). I have yearly vignettes for all 3 of my cars. It's €28 for a year which is tremendous value so anyone trying to cut that corner deserves whatever sanction the officlals hand down (In my opinion anyhow).

Yes 28€ is cheap.... unless you are considering the quality of many romanians roads behind this in comparison with others Europeans countries...

Now that is the understatement of the century. Drove it for the first time 3 weeks ago southbound from Sibiu to Bucharest and was stunned at the amount of trucks, traffic, illegal overtaking, near death experiences... I can only imagine what the accident rate is like on that section. Must be in the top tier in the whole of Europe.

Sibiu-Pitesti is now No 1 priority in the masterplan which has just been approved by the EC. As to the lenght of lots, that is still unkown until we see the FS. But approximately, they should have between 70 and 80 km altogether.
