That means, A3 Carpathian crossing is not a PPP project, neither the A1 Carpathian crossing. I usually don't care about contract details but is there currently any PPP project ongoing or planned in Romania?

No, Comarnic-Brașov is not a PPP anymore. It will be budget and EU funded mostly.

There is one PPP left and that is Craiova-Pitești which is n negotiations now but I doubt it will be more succesul than Comarnic-Ploiești. So it will probably fall into the same mix funded scheme somatime n the future.

VIAROM proposal included in their FS 5 tunnels (2 at Comarnic, and one each at Sinaia, Busteni and Predeal), and CNANR agreed for 3 of them (Sinaia, Busteni and Predeal). Probably now they need those tunnels to apper in their FS as well so that they can start tender process including those.

So 2016 will be lost with that FS for most parts of Comarnic - Brasov and works could only began on those 4 kilometers around Comarnic and those 6 kilometers on the other end (around Rasnov and Cristian); these 10 kilometers were tender this autumn and we can expect to be contracted this year.

As it was already explain to you, those picture were made during the day, as people expected the opening but no one knew when it will happen. It's a pretty strange situation not to have an official opening, with politicians and priest. It's good, but still strange.

And to finalize, some video of the new strech opened:
from Timisoara towards Lugoj, at 4* speed:



from Lugoj towards Timisoara, at normal speed:

A year's end accounts of motorways in Romania, and what we could expect for 2016 in terms of openings and projects started (according to an informed journal):


2015: 46,6 km of motorways opened

- A1 Arad - Nadlac, Lot 2 - 11 km : July

- A1 Timisoara - Lugoj, Lot 2 - 25,6 km : December

- A1 Lugoj - Deva, Lot 2 - 10 km : December


2016: 75,45 km of motorways possibly to be opened

- A1 Lugoj - Deva, Lot 2 - 17 km

- A1 Lugoj - Deva, Lot 3 - 21 km

- A3 Gilau (Cluj Vest) - Nadaselu - 8,7 km

- A10 Sebes - Turda, Lot 3 - 12,45 km

- A10 Sebes - Turda, Lot 4 - 16,3 km

New projects to be started in 2016:


- A3 Nadaselu - Mihaiesti - 16,8 km
- A3 Campia Turzii - Tg. Mures - 56 km
- A3 Comarnic - Brasov - 10,3 km
- A3 Bucuresti - Sos. Popasului - 3 km
- A3 Suplacu de Barcau - Bors - 64 km
- A7 Bacau by pass - 16 km
- Bucharest Ring South* - 35 km

* Unlikely to me.
** I hope to see contracts signed next year for Sibiu-Pitesti , at least for the 2 end sections, with FS almost ready. There is reasonable time to tender and contract them by end year.

Length of motorways opened in last years:

2009 - 42 km
2010 - 28 km
2011 - 57 km
2012 - 139 km
2013 - 108 km
2014 - 50,5 km
2015 - 46,6 km

Lenght of motorways in use by year:


2008: 262,9 km
2009: 304,9 km
2010: 332,5 km
2011: 389,15 km
2012: 528,15 km
2013: 636,5 km
2014: 687 km
2015: 711,6 km*

* Without 22 km of Sibiu-Orastie motorway (now closed for repairs until next year)


And map from 130km.ro :

right? (i.e. the already finished but not earlier usable part Balint - Sanovita)
Seems it was already wrong in the source quoted.

The article has a better (but not perfect) map. I cannot embed the map but directly link it: http://hotnews.maps.arcgis.com/apps/...ue&theme=light. Legend:

black = opened <= 2014
blue = opened in 2015
red = could be opened in 2016
yellow = could be opened in 2017



Edit: I will move the estimated A10 lot 1+2 opening date to 2017. It's also "confirmed" by an article from August 2015 which reports that there's no chance to open it on schedule (October 2016) because the lack of building permits. I'm not sure if it's the same for lot 3+4. Are they still likely to be opened on schedule in March 2016?

I know the map from 130km.ro is not exact. But I did not find any exact map, and I posted the approximation. A7 and A0 are also missing from that map, and while A0 is not probable to be started next year, A7 is.

I don't think that it's on schedule according to the following December pics:

Tjere's no way in hell that those 2 lots from A10 will be ready by next spring. They have both had issues with various authorisations, some of them due to changing the original course of the motorway (the A3-A10 interchance has been completely redesigned and looks nothing like the original). There is a good chance that they finish by the end of next year, if they pick up the pace, and of course, if the remaining authorisations are issued...

First post here on 2016:

1. the bidding process for A3, Comarnic over-pass was cancelled. They received only one offer and it is said that this offer was incorrect.

From my point of view this is not a big deal as that segment was only 4 km long and didn't have a continuation in sight neither towards Ploiesti, neither towards Sinaia. We don't have any information about the other segment that was tendered in the same time, A3 around Rasnov - Cristian (Brasov county).

2. On the missing segment between Lugoj and Deva he have a nice map, courtesy of cristi5 from PUM:



uninterrupted line are in use; the red ones were done in 2013 and open to traffic only in 2015 as there were no I/C at the end.

dashed lines are under construction:
- between Traian Vuia and Margina there are hopes that opening will come this summer.
- between Margina and Holdea is the 6 kilometers segment where a new tender is needed for that 3 tunnels that are to be build. Estimated date for opening: 2018.
- Between Holdea and Grind I/C there would not be traffic in 2016-2018 unless a temporary I/C won't be build near Holdea.
- Between Grind and Ilia I/C there is a possible opening late this year.
- Even between Ilia and Deva I/C there are hopes for an opening late in 2016 but 2017 is more likely for that segment.

Thank you very much for those great explanations for Lugoj-Deva, it's much much easier to see the progress on this segment!!

I hope that there will be no other delay...

More bad news abot motorway building in Roumania. For Pitesti - Sibiu section, where an FS is underway, there is a fresh report coming out from JASPERS (in english) that basicly says that all the works done so far are not good.

So a new delay in presenting a final version of this FS is in order. Probably the ending section (in plain terrain) will have a FS done but autumn 2016 (instead of december 2015) and the mountain section probably in 2017.

Have the widening / broadening works on some sections been completed in 2015?

Widening of the old DN7 is not over. But, most important, is of NO great importance since it's made for no more that 4-5 km. So I really don't care about that and neither should anyone else. And I can't see the point in widening since we are planning a motorway exactly around there.

Maybe it's not important but I think it's quite interesting to know which projects are ongoing and for which (useless) projects money is invested.

In addition, you've recently reported another delay for the motorway project. I think the 2x2 widening does not cost much money and it could be a reasonable investment.... When will the (parallel) motorway be completed there, 2020, 2022, 2025,..?

Sibiu-Pitesti motorway is pretty much blasted off the table for the 2014-2020 fiancing by the EC cosultant Jasper. Next ! Comarnic-Brasov and A7-A0.

Quote:
The content of the documents reviewed is not suitable at this stage to support a successful Financing Application for the project. As recommended in the Commission’s Implementing Regulation (EU) 2015/207, the Option Analysis should be carried out in two steps: in the first step looking at basic strategic options (i.e. type of infrastructure and location for the project) and in the second one at specific solutions at the technological level.

The option analysis process should start with the strategic background, the context within the relevant national strategic plans and development programs (e.g. General Transport Master Plan and the Large Infrastructure Operational Program) and determination of key project objectives. The Reports fail to present this strategic background sufficiently.

Quote:
Conclusion
While the merits of the proposed preferred options are acknowledged, the manner in which the option
analysis is presented does not allow for a clear and certain confirmation of the selection process.
Based on all of the above JASPERS cannot confirm the adequacy of the documents for the support of
a successful Financing Application and recommends review and redoing of the route alignment study
using a clear methodology, robust and adequate scoring framework without duplications, based on
reliable and robust Traffic Study and reliable CBA tool, realistic timetables, engineering solutions
optioneering considering buildability and environmental issues and the latest surveys and information.
JASPERS support remains available assist with future development of the project.

I think the planning procedure is not (much) more advanced for the other projects mentioned.....

But it is much more easy to prepare and build. In plains, innit ?! Except for Comarnic-Brasov where it is still not ready yet, but it will be ready years before the Pitesti-Sibiu considering the fact that the latter appears to have to be redone. Comarnic-Brasov is also half the Sibiu-Pitesti in lenght. Ponta is vindicated !!

Wait, more bad news. Or good, depending on the angle you look at it.

Contract with Salini Impregilo to build segment no. 3 of Orastie - Sibiu Motorway, cancelled


Quote:
The contract with Salini Impregilo to build segment no.3 of the Orastie - Sibiu Motorway has been cancelled, and a process to select a new company to remedy the deficiencies in that area will be started, with works to be completed in August, said Transport Minister Dan Costescu.

Under these circumstances, the traffic on the said motorway could be resumed in September this year.

"I have received a communication from CNADNR [the National Company of Motorways and National Roads] for the cancellation of the contract with the current constructor [for segment no. 3 of the Orastie-Sibiu Motorway]. At the same time, a new call for tenders for selecting the new constructor to fix the deficiencies will be launched. The deadline for these works, if no dispute arises, is August. That means in early or in mid-September, motorway traffic may be resumed," the transport minister told a Wednesday's conference at the ministry's headquarters.

A document of the Ministry of European Funds shows that the motorway in question has Q3 2018 as completion deadline and the remaining investment amounts to 92.4 million euros.

Also, CNADNR is pondering to cancel the contract for Sibiu-Pitesti feasibility contract for bad peformance.
