It is expected that ground works will be started again this month. Contract was signed last year and design phased should be over.

Thank you, looking forward to it. Completion is scheduled some time end of 2018 I suppose? Nevertheless without the next section till Nadaselu, it wont bring much connectivity I'm affraid.

Yes, probably will be finished together with M35 and M4 between Debrecen - Berettyoujfalu - Artand. So by 2018, 100 years after unification, will have two conection between Transilvania / Erdely / Ardeal and the former capital. Wien, that is, not Budapest! :P

And on a serious note, the situation is as follows:
- for the segment between Nadaselu and Mihaiesti bidding process is over, a contract should be sign soon
- the "Meses tunnel" (somewhere south of Zalau), is in process of getting a new FS.
- the rest of the segment between Nadaselu and Surplacu should get this spring a new enviromental agreement

Futher inland, after Campia Turzii towards Targu Mures, we are expecting also ground works to start this month (or this spring, at least), with delivery time somewhere in 2017. Toghether with Sebes - Turda segment, all this segments will put Cluj way ahead of other towns in terms of infrastructure conections.

Hope there will not be a wall soon on all those motorway connections. :P

________


Indeed, Cluj will have the best infrastructure connections in Romania as a result of A3 and A10 connections, better than Bucharest and even Timisoara, let alone other smaller cities. It is no surprise that Cluj is also becoming second center in terms of economic development , overtaking Timisoara and competing head-on with Bucharest.

BTW: IT consultancy arm of Porsche group opens office at Cluj

More on the Daimler plant scuffle:

Poland pulled into CEE's Daimler car chase

March 18, 2016
Quote:
Poland is being pulled into the chase for Daimler's planned factory in Central and Eastern Europe. The German automotive company has put Poland and Hungary onto a short list as potential locations for a new €800mn engine factory, a Polish newspaper reported on March 18.

The report from Puls Biznesu adds fuel to the fire of speculation on the plant’s location, resembling the race whipped up amongst CEE countries last year to host a €1.3bn plant for Jaguar Land Rover. The report that Poland is amongst the candidates follows claims that Daimler is eyeing Hungary, Romania, Russia and Slovakia. The Polish report claims that Slovakia, which eventually won the JLR investment, has now fallen out of the running.

The Mercedes-Benz building appears to have done its best to add to the confusion. The German press quotes a Mercedes executive as hinting that a second investment in a car factory is up for grabs, while Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche has hinted Romania is on the list.

In Poland, Daimler is reported to be eyeing the south-western town of Jawor. The site is the same one offered to JLR, Puls Biznesu writes.

Warsaw is apparently using the British marque's positive opinion of Jawor to market the location to Daimler. Consultants are joining the effort, calling Jawor a unique location.

“Poland does not have a sufficient number of large enough plots. We should learn from the Czechs and the Hungarians how to prepare such areas,” Tomasz Olszewski of real estate broker Jones Lang LaSalle told the newspaper.

Officially, however, there is no confirmation from Germany that any investments are planned in the CEE, let alone if any particular countries are being looked at as locations. The Polish government and foreign investment agency also remain tight lipped.

That is likely the result of reports that Polish claims last year that the country was about to clinch the JLR deal upset the Indian-owned carmaker. Officials in Warsaw claimed at the time, however, that Poland simply couldn't compete with the huge package of incentives offered by Bratislava.

Hungary will be happy to hear that it remains on the shortlist. Daimler acquired a 441-hectare plot in the country in 2008, of which it currently uses only 160 hectares. The company originally planned to to use the remaining area to build a second plant to double potential capacity to 300,000 units, but that was derailed by the financial crisis. Since 2012 Damiler has been suggesting it will look again at the plan.

Meanwhile, the German press claims Russia is now out of the running. Zetsche said in January that the carmaker planned a new plant in the country, but that has now reportedly changed because there are no signs of imminent recovery in the economy.

Ford May Move More Production to Craiova Plant in Romania
February 18, 2016


It's official. This means EUR 1 billion of additional yearly production capacity at Craiova, as about 40 k Ecosports are sold yearly in Europe, which will be produced solely in Craiova. Waiting for Daimler.

Ford to Build EcoSport Small SUV at Craiova Next Year
Mar-22-2016 5:15 AM ET

Quote:
​CRAIOVA, Romania – Ford has confirmed that it is investing up to €200 million to manufacture the Ford EcoSport small SUV at its Craiova Assembly Plant in Romania starting in the autumn of 2017.

The EcoSport sold in Europe, excluding Russia, is currently built at Ford India’s Chennai Vehicle Assembly Plant. Ford’s Chennai plant will continue to build the EcoSport for domestic Indian sales and for many export markets around the world.

“EcoSport sales are up nearly 30 percent this year and given the continued outlook for sales growth in the small SUV segment, it’s the right time to move EcoSport production to Europe and take advantage of the excellent workforce and operations we have in Craiova,” said Jim Farley, president and CEO, Ford of Europe.

Since taking over the Craiova facility in 2008, Ford has invested more than €1 billion in its Romanian manufacturing operations. The Ford B-MAX multi-activity vehicle is currently built in Craiova, plus Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine – the only engine to win the International Engine of the Year award three years in succession.

Ford also said it will continue to seek opportunities to build further products in Craiova so that it can fully utilize the facility’s capacity and asset utilization.

“Craiova has a bright future if it continues to improve its competitiveness and operational flexibility. The recent successful agreement on a two-year labor contract was a very positive step,” Farley said. “We also need to continue to work with the government and local authorities to improve infrastructure and logistics.”

Is the DN76 (Oradea-Deva) the worst national road of Romania? (At least of western Romania?)


Today I went in Vartop and I drove on DN76 on Varfurile-Pocola...

This road as it is right now is a killing road, the amount of holes, unfinished buildings (abandoned?).... every 200m there is a huge bump and you almost have to stop in front of it... On some parts you have to drive on the opposite side to avoid all the holes while the traffic is big on those segments, it is unbelievable....

Are the work abandoned on this road? The only few workers I saw were on the hilly part (Lazuri-Cristioru de Jos)

Some pics from my dashcam :

Exclusive: Daimler can build a Mercedes engine plant near Sebes gearbox plant in Romania
APRIL 4, 2016

Quote:
Mayor of Sebes, Adrian Alexandru Dancila, has confirmed that Daimler acquired huge pieces of land near Sebes gearbox plant in Romania for a possible future Mercedes engine plant.

It was a rumour in the romanian press at the begining of March 2016 that Daimler has acquired huge pieces of land near Sebes gearbox plant. The mayor of Sebes, Adrian Alexandru Dancila, has confirmed the news.

According to the Sebes mayor, the land acquired by Daimler is as big as the land used for the gearbox plant, which means a total of 130,000 sqm from which 72,000 sqm were used for the new 9G-Tronic gearbox plant.

Two weeks ago, polish press has speculated that Daimler will build a car plant and a engine plant in Jawor.

But it seems that Sebes can be also a candidate for a Daimler engine plant. With high skills workers in Cugir and Sebes for manufacturing the modern 9G-Tronic gearbox, the land already acquired near to the Sebes plant, it would be more logic to build an engine plant in the neighbourhood.

Mercedes has produced last year 300,000 7-speed double clutch gearbox for the compact range and will raise the production for the new 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox from one shift to three shifts.

80% of the 1.32 million Mercedes models with all wheel drive and rear wheel drive sold last year used an automatic gearbox.
