Ploiesti-Brasov (actually Comarnic-Brasov section of A3, as Ploiesti-Comarnic is a pretty decent 2x2 road) is not a priority anymore, even though there are plans to revise the FS as the recent tenders for works organised last year were a total failure because of the difficulty of the mountain sections and the poor drafting of the tender documentation. In the meantime, they will build by-passes for several choke-points on that route.

Craiova-Pitesti motorway is now again a 'priority' for the government who wants to convince Ford to produce electric cars here following the recent visit in the US of our PM, but let's see some actual progress there first ...
This is quite unexpected, in a positive way . So Romania have convinced EU to provide money for the A3 part from Bors to Targu Mures, for the whole A10 and if I understand you correctly also for the A7 part from Ploesti to Bacau. At the same time, these highways do not lie on the designated TEN-T corridors passing through Romania (Rhine-Danube and Orient/Eastern Mediterranean), which are the most important to EU with respect to fund allocation. I guess your administration has done its homework very well.

This is the TEN-T Core and Comprehensive map for RO&BG . Core is funded 85% by EU and Comprehensive much less .

The call for projects for infrastructure has been launched in ROmania.

The Minister of EU Funds calls for projects under EUR 5.8 bln infrastructure program
By Country Investment Reviews May 31, 2016

Quote:
The Minister of European Funds opened on Monday calls for financing roads, railroads and metro infrastructure development projects with a total budget of EUR 5.8 billion from the overall Large Infrastructure Operational Program 2014-2016.

According to AGERPRES “the financing requests for all the calls opened today will be registered between June, 1, 2016- December, 31, 2018. There will be financed infrastructure projects unfinished until the end of 2015, as well as new projects, prioritized for financing depending on the documents of strategic planning”.

The goal of roads infrastructure financing is to ensure the passengers and goods mobility in terms of insurance and efficiency of resources and irregularities removal from EU roads infrastructure, while the goal for train infrastructure is to finish the railroad aisle Rhin-Danube, more exactly the improvement of the railroad between Hungary and Constanta boundary, in this way ensuring the mobility growth on the railroad central TEN-T, as well as efficiency and competitiveness of railroad transport.

The budget of the railroads call is EUR 1.85 billion, the eligible applicants being the National Company of Railways CFR SA, the Transport Minister and other relevant beneficiaries.

The budget of the public roads call is EUR 3.27 billion and the eligible applicant is the National Company of Highways and National Roads, which is the administrator of roads infrastructure of national and European interest.

The Large Infrastructure Operational Program 2014-2020 has allocated almost EUR 12 billion for the transport, environment and energy sectors.

I know about these maps even though they are not complete. I mean the core networks in both countries are bigger than what is shown. It will be very good, however, if it is possible to make use of EU funding (85%) regarding the so called core network.
I was talking about the TEN-T corridors depicted below. They are the ones which have the funding of 85% by European commission and the EU priority is to finish them first. Afterwards if there are enough resources left, we could eventually apply for other main traces. It is very positive to see that your infrastructure operational program can also be adapted at this point of time to your core network.

The call for projects (tenders?) includes improvement of the road from DTSeverin to Calafat?

The current priorities of the CNADNR are:

1. Sibiu-Pitesti (A1)
2. Bors-Nadaselu (A3)
3. Ploiesti-Pascani (A7)
4. Tg Mures-Ungheni (A8)
5. Upgrade of Bucharest South belt (expressway)

and of curse completion of current works on A1 (Sibiu-Arad), A10 (Sebes-Turda) and A3 (Campia Turzii-Tg Mures)

LE: and recently Craiova-Pitesti motorway (A12) as I mentioned above, though I am still curios to see what is going to happen for that actually because it was a concession so far, and all concessions failed.

LE2: That's roughly EUR 20 B în projects while the budget in the call for projects is EUR 3.27 B - roads that is.


Basically TEN-T core with some exceptions.

I think point 5 in the list can be also added to the highway Bucharest (RO) - Veliko Turnovo (BG) together with a new bridge over Danube near the old and obviously with already limited capacity bridge. It is a good idea to join efforts for EU funds in this direction.

Definitely this segment as part of A6 will be upgraded to an expressway at least since it is the only way to enter Orient/East Med corridor in Bulgaria.

DTSeverin to Lugoj was upgraded and modernised under a ISPA financing program for heavy (read truck) traffic. It would make sense to continue the modernisation from DTSeverin to Calafat.

Don't take the priorities as the actual fact. This government will change at the end of the year so next year we may have other 'priorities'. However, in the meanwhile the masterplan will be approved, and A6 is there as well.

Actually no. South by-pass of Bucharest towards an expressway standard dosn't have anything to do with conectivity towards Bulgaria. It's mainly for local and small transit trafic.
Bucharest will need a real highway around, planned A0, and hopefully they will start building it soon, at least on northern part, between DN1 - Otopeni airport and A3.

Conectivity towards Bulgaria will be improve when they will decide an the location for a new bridge. And hopefully than won't be Giurgiu / Ruse. I hope to see a new bridge either at Turnu Magurele / Nikopol, either at Zimnicea / Shistov, asuring the direct link between Bucharest and Plevnen/Sofia.

Don't be so sure about it. He have many others priorities ahead of that.

A direct link to Istanbul is more important. That, along with plans on Ruse-Veliko Tarnovo highway and onwards, make Ruse-Giurgiu bridge a very plausible option.

Don't be so sure about it. He have many others priorities ahead of that.
I know A0 is a separate project in Romania, my idea is that with the new highway across Danube there, you can also solve half of the Bucharest ring in a highway grade. Thus the capital will get the southern ring and at the same time connect A1 and A2. I mean with one project two hits.

The old bridge at Ruse/Giurgiu is already suffocating from the increasing traffic and things will only deteriorate with time. So the spot needs a new modern and broader bridge which can cope with traffic demands. We are going to build Veliko Turnovo-Ruse highway and according to our plans the best place for a new bridge is very close eastwards to the old one. If I am not mistaken you have west of Giurgiu some areas in Natura2000 and this will delay a new bridge there.

Another bridge at Turnu Magurele/Nikopol is also supposed to be built but I am sure such a bridge will not precede the one at Giurgiu/Ruse. First the latter lies on the major European corridor IX and the distance from Bucharest to the river is nearer. Secondly Bucharest and Sofia will be connected all the way through highway taking into account the priority of our A2, which otherwise won't be the case if one takes the way to Turnu Magurele and then Pleven. And last but not least I don't expect Bulgaria and Romania are going pay so much attention to a bridge at Nikopol/TM at that point of time.
Zimnicea/Svishtov is too close to Giurgiu/Ruse to make sense both from geographic and economic point of view.

The problem for Romanian politicians is that they need to justify the spending of free money, so they don't touch it. Together with a lack of knowledge and experience with the respective funds, it's my only way to explain the low use of European funds.

Another promising Danube cross is at Silistra/Calarasi which is the shortest path from Istanbul and the Dardanelles to Warsaw along the future A7 and around Lvov in Ukraine. It can also serve the major traffic route from Kiev through Albita and then further south across the river there. I believe a branch of A7 from Buzau to Slobozia will do very good in this respect.

So now you start to understand why one like me would not invest into a new bridge at Giurgiu / Ruse.

A new bridge at Ruse/Giurgiu is inevitable because it aggregates to a big extent the traffic around Bucharest from your A1, A3, future A7 and Galati. On the other side, it is a big concentration point on Danube for the traffic from southern (future A8), western and eastern (current and future A2) Bulgaria.
A bridge there will not only have positive influence on Bucharest as a whole but also on Brasov area.

Ok, I will stop here arguing because it's pretty clear that we see things different. Just to be clear what my point is:

Danube needs more crossing, I would not invest into a new one at Giurgiu / Ruse but instead I would rather see two new one: at Calarasi / Silistra and
- either somewhere close to Zimnicea (let's say near Krivina - Novgrad with direct conection towards Byala / Veliko Tarnovo)
- either Turnu Magurele / Nikopol conected towards Pleven

Neither of those should be build as motorway standard (2*2 + emergency lane) as there will NEVER be need so much traffic around there.

The next focus of the government following the slow closing of A1 motorway (former CIV) is to build-up A7 (former CIX), of which a section near Bacău is U/C and tenders are în preparaton to be launched soon for FS and design on other sections from Ploiesti to Bacău and further toward Iasi. These sections are projected to be completed by 2020-2022. Of course, this will mean more traffic coming from the former Sovietic space to Bucharest and further down to Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. This means another bridge will probably be needed at Giurgiu-Ruse.
