Here's Corridor IV:



The map has some errors though.

And some more detail:

Two branches will join at Nadlac on the Hungarian–Romanian
border. One runs in the direction of the port of Constanta, via
Bucharest, while the other runs south to Sofia and on towards
Thessaloniki and Athens.

The Corridor does not split at Nadlac, but at Lugoj, which is about 100 km further east, but it doesn't really matter anyway.

This means they aim at completing another 350 km of Corridor IV (A1+A2) in the coming 3 years (aside from some 200 km they plan to complete on A3). I frankly do not see how they could complete the Pitesti-Sibiu section until the deadline (it's a mountaineous section), but the rest of the section could be ready by end of 2013.

Do you know if these works are connected? I see a hilly landscape (where they are building the big passage (I think is at Suplacu de Barcau) and a plain terrain where the works are pretty advanced (I think this should be somewhere near the Hungarian border).

They worked intensely between km 0 and km 30 of section 3c. These year they can finish the 2km of Suplacu de Barcau viaduct and a 18 km section between Dolea and Sarsig.

@ Skynick: Thanks for the nice update!

@Panda: The ministry said they would complete at least another 30 km of Transilvania Motorway this year. You seem to disagree?

I was saying they will finish about 20km on section 3c. And with the 9km of section 2b (Campia Turzii-Turda) it makes about 30km on the whole Transylvania motorway.

OK. I understand. Thanks.

So this year they should open the 20 km section from the border with Hungary at Bors to Surplacu de Barcau?

Out of the 64km of 3c section (from Suplacu de Barcau till Bors) , they will finish a part from km 6-7 till km 26-27.So the section they open is not the one close to the border, but more in the interior, as I said, from Suplacu de Barcau till Sarsig (a village in Chislaz commune, S-W from Marghita).

Are those four-lane roads really 4 lanes, or just two lanes with shoulders?

On a long section of DN1 (N of Bucharest) it's 2x3, and on most sections is 2x2.

The seaside road is 2x2 on the full lenght.

For DN2 from Bucharest to Iasi I think it is mostly 2x2.

From Bucharest south to Giurgiu is 2x2 and express on some sections.

The road near Sibiu is mostly 2x2 with shoulders on top.

I am not sure about the rest though I remember near Cluj the road is fully 2x2.

The cities are dimmed in this version because they are under design reevaluation (I can use the real shape of the cities or only dots). The version with all the relevant cities will be available next month.

DN2 (E60/E85) it's just a two-lane road with large shoulders, excepting some 20 km between Buzău and Râmnicu Sărat, where it turns in a real four-lane road. Due to the intense traffic those shoulders are used as slow lanes.

DN1/DN7 (E68/E81) near Sibiu is a four-lane road for only 16 kilometers until Sibiu, and a former two-lane road plus shoulder (now a 2+1 road) between Sibiu and Miercurea Sibiului (39 km). After Miercurea Sibiului it's a simple (but very, very busy) two-lane road.

DN1 (E60/E81) is a four-lane road between Turda and Vâlcele, near Cluj (just 19-20 km). After Vâlcele it's a 2+1 road (1+1 and one climbing lane) until Cluj (8-9 km).

How far inside the Bucuresti ring road (the present one, not future A0) do A1 and A2 extend?

The imagery of Bucuresti is pretty new, and shows both A1 and A2 have their last (or first) grade-separated interchange at the CB (Centurii Bucuresti).
