Ford is only producing the B-Max in Romania and it's kind of a strange model, it's not a car for everyone, it's mostly for small families... just like Lodgy who is probably cheaper...

But you guys in Romania need to buy more Volkwagens from Slovakia as well.....and Audi TTs and Suzukis from Hungary too.

Interesting, there is also the train who is great over road...

Seriously? I didn't knew Audi has an big hungarian plant, it's kind of funny from a premium brand who sell his cars like "german made" cars...

Ford would do good if it produced the Focus here. There is room for a 3rd model at Craiova, until the output reaches its top 300 k units / year. Conditioned of course on infrastructure ...

Focus is a very good model to sell, and similar to Golf. Maybe even better . I am not very sure about the Eco Sport model though.

Right, that would be good to have some romanians Focus... even if the infrastructure is not good for this...

It's crazy to think that without this massive embezzlement from CNADNR, Romania whould have economicaly rised much more than now...

Audi opened in the early ´90´s in Hungary, if I´m not mistaken.

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.

About 25 km of overall extensions on this north section of DN7 all the way to Cainenii Mari are planned to be completed in the near future, presumably also in preparation of the Sibiu-Pitesti motorway works.
The section begins near Meghis bridge and ends at Lazaret, that's maximum 7km. Just south of Lazaret works are also ongoing on a very short section though. Except that, there's currently nothing u/c.

I think it still looks like on the video taken two weeks ago.

I think the width of the new asphalt surface is wider than the existing (old) one. 4 lanes should be no problem.

A second 4 lane bridge would be nothing short of what's desperately needed. But having been there for a while it looks like the money, specialism and infrastructure are simply not there to facilitate this smoothly and efficiently. (not as I know it at least). Seeing how long this takes.. It's almost like most road projects in the area are like throwing money in a bottomless well.

Unfortunately, it's the exact opposite. Investments in infrastructure in Romania in 2015 are at a 10 year low. And half of what they were 4-5 years ago, when Romania was in a deep crisis. Because we have a socialist gov who likes to throw money 'at people'.

I guess it's the 3. alternative!
But since Sibiu-Alba Iulia ist almost motorway all the way I think its better /for sure shorter/ to take the ferry at Nikopol - Turnu Magurele and then the 2. route

If you are not in a big hury, you could use Transalpina road, DN 67C. It goes all the way up until 2000m asl, so it should be done in a sunny day so you can apreciate the mpuntains around.

Between those 3 choices I think I would choose the first one. There are some works on DN66 between Bumbesti and Petrosani and DN1 between Sebes and Turda should be pretty busy during day time (but you can watch A10 building site, highway between A1 and A3. Be careful around Cluj, you can loose a lot of time in western part, from A3 (Gilau) untill interior Cluj. If you reach Cluj in morning or in late after-noon then I would sugest to not use A3 to Gilau but DN1 from Turda towards the city.

The Romanian road company has just announced that A1 motorway, Deva-Sibiu, lot 3 (section between Cunta and Saliste... about 22 km long, from km 270+020 to km 292+455) will be closed starting with Monday, for about 1.5 months, for repair works.

This section was opened just about 9 months ago, but there have always been concerns regarding the quality of the works.

There were already roadworks since minimum June but not much progress. There were also works on the bridge and east of the bridge all the time. The first (eastbound) carriageway is already closed since 26th August b/n Apoldu i/c and west of the 1000m viaduct near Aciliu (6km). Now, the pavement is parital completely removed, e.g. just west of the viaduct.

The 2nd (westbound) carriageway is currently used 2-laned. Speed is limited to 60km/h, real average speed is between 30km/h and 100km/h (I drove 100km/h all the way this morning which was quite strange compared to the last days). Vehicles drifing towards Sibiu use the left lane, towards Deva the right lane. There is a hugh pothole on the left lane since Monday. Traffic towards Sibiu usually stops in front of it and passes it with about 5..20km/h.

I think on A1, there's a broken vehicle each 5km. I even saw a broken truck b/n Apoldu and Aciliu which drove towards Sibiu, broke the barrier, crossed the lane towards Deva and stopped on the emergency lane. The "barrier" is just a continuous yellow line with little plastic(?) pickets though.

I'm "looking forward" to drive on DN1 again next week .

Which time will the closure begin on Monday?

Could you please summarize the article. It's about the closure but also about the completion of the remaining A1 sections b/n Timisoara and Deva. I'm not sure at all if I got it right......

BTW: the builder accepted its fault for the construction errors, and the current remedy works are made on account of the builder's expenses.

The right lane at the worst location was already closed two months ago. There was a big meeting (> 10 cars, > 20 persons) on-site in early July. I guess they discussed about the issue, who's to blame and how to fix etcetera. I even saw a lady wearing a skirt there. That's why I guess it was about warranty not just about technical issues.

Well, Narcis Neaga, head of CNADNR, our road company, is trying hard to give a good news along with the BIG bad news. He is saying, at 1:25, that they will open this year Timisoara - Lugoj, lot II, "something like 24-25 kilometers", but also Dumbrava - Margina.
He is making a big mistake saying that at Margina they will build a roundabout because the project implies an I//C which is underconstruction.

Timisoara - Lugoj it is expected to be open but for Dumbrava to Margina is really hard to believe that there are any real chances.

From Margina towards Deva there will be no openinng this year as they still have 2 big problems to solve out at both end:
- at Soimus, near Deva, works are 0 as tehnical solution wasn't agreed upon.
- and somewhere around this area they will need a new bidding proces to determine a new constructor for 6 kilometers that will include three tunnel requested through enviromental agreement. And since bidding process haven't started yet, I doubt that they will open in 2016. More likely will have Sibiu - Nadlac in second part of 2017.
