Those 3tunnels in Lugoj - Deva area are suppose to be shorter, some 400-600 meters.
So, in conclusion, there is no future visible for the Romanian tunnels......well, lets hope for a change in that

Only one item on that list was a motorway, all the others are simple 2+2 national roads (although, the upgraded DN1 was supposed to be sort of a motorway, in a cheap, communist thinking sort of way; it never became one, though).

The map was posted by bogdymol, see link. I guess he created it because there is no source indication.

The map is correct, it indicates Opening Years of motorway sections, not start dates. Contruction debut is something a lot more vague, since some project had ridiculous delays (like the A3), some having been started near the revolution, abandoned and restarted in the early 2000's (in the case of the A2)

A former EU commissioner will be Romania's PM so let's hope for more motorways in the coming years. The current government has cut infrastructure funds to a historic minimum, including motorway investment. And that's also how they fell.

Ex-Commissioner Dacian Ciolos to be Romania’s next PM

C'mon, it's only a rummor. A two days old rummor, which is quite clear today that it wasn't true.

It's quite true. This is not interim. This is after a new coalition forms. Any Ways, let's get back to motorways.

The Sibiu-Pitești route option have been officially published. These are the result of the new FS study performer. There are 4 route options. Final route will be decide after public consultations.


edit bogdymol: the image was too large for displaying nicely on the forum. Click on it to enlarge.

The map contains 5 route options though (5th route is the 2008 FS route). The lengths are between 121.577 and 130.370km. The routes would have between 7 and 16 tunnels. The longest tunnel length is 2,800m or 2,100m depending on the route option.

Edith: I found a news article reporting a length of 116km and it's reporting about 5 sections:

Sibiu-Boita (10.3km)
Boita-Racovita (26km)
Racovia-Valeni (20km)
Valeni-Cutrea de Arges (29.6km)
Curtea de Arges-Pitesti (30.7km)

The latest FS also took into account an express link toward Ramnicu Valcea, from Tigveni interchange. It is also ilustrated on the map, with a dotted black line. Apparently, it will be done by modernising DN73C on it's old alignment (which is crappy, full of tight bends...)

Someone on the Romanian forum made a more detailed summary (in Romanian but it is straightforward):

The first 2 sections of FS (Sibiu-Boita and Curtea de Arges-Pitesti) will come out next month, so they will be able to start preparing the tenders for works by spring. The rest of the FS sections will be completed next year.

It was a true rumour it seems.

BTW: Ciolos is also a special advisor to Juncker.

Romania’s motorways company files criminal complaint against Italian contractor

Quote:
Romania’s highways company CNADNR filed a criminal complaint against Italian group Salini-Impregilo, for the execution problems which have led to serious problems on the third sector of the Sibiu-Orastie highway.

A segment of this highway sector has been closed and partially demolished to be rebuilt, after large cracks formed in the road due to landslides.

According to CNADNR, Salini-Impregilo, which was the general contractor for this highway segment, is the only responsible entity for the problems. In its complaint, the highways company has accused the Italian contractor of doing a poor quality work on the highway piece as well as fraud and performing unauthorized work.

The CNADNR will also ask the company to pay damages, which remain to be determined.

Weren't they rushed by politicians to finish the motorway in time for the elections? This motorway segment opened two days before the second round of the presidential elections.

The construction was flawed from the very start, when the same company did the study.
Even if it wasn't rushed, it would've been the same result.

Is there any estimated re-opening date of the A1 section? Are works ongoing there?
