This is my personal opinion about the future bridges on Danube in order of importance:

1. Giurgiu-Ruse (road 2x2). We can modernize the rail on the old one.
2. Silistra-Calarasi (road 2x2 or 1x1 + a rail line)
3. Turnu Magurele-Nikopol (road 1x1 + a rail line)
4. Oryahovo-Bechet (road 1x1)

First two are compulsory, the third is very good to have and the last one will complete the picture.

The shared resources to build a bridge with its approaches is similar to the construction of approx. 25-30km highway on both sides of the river. The point is whether we can make use of some EU funds for the corresponding bridge infrastructure.

I already made Transalpina which is really nice despite that some parts are in poor state (at least it was the case 2 years ago)... I will definitly go to Transfagarasan this summer!!

Well I guess it is passable and no hard offroad is needed. After all it is the journey that matters and the adventure, not the time .

What is the best way to drive Transalpina, from north to south, or from south north?

If you replace the summands in the problem you get the same result, I think, unless I am wrong...

Well that's what you can say with an exterior point of view, but when you are in it, it really spolis the fun, when you hurt the underbody of your car because of poor junctions and deep holes in the road (it's what happened to me 2 years ago), the worse part for me was the part on the Sebes side, every 50m the road was "segmented" with holes because of the drainage channels that has been put under the road : https://www.google.com/maps/@45.6695...7i13312!8i6656 (Google Maps was here in 2012, I went 2 years later, it was worse than in the pictures...)

Also this part with rocks was hard (no pavement) and dangerous (rocks were still looks like they would fall on you at any occasion...) :
https://www.google.com/maps/@45.5505...7i13312!8i6656

Also this kind of things : https://www.google.com/maps/@45.5205...7i13312!8i6656


And once I was in Ranca, I went back and made the mistake to take the """road""" between Obârşia Lotrului and Petrosani, who was already pretty bad in 2012 : https://www.google.com/maps/@45.4035...7i13312!8i6656


The high parts of Transalpina were okay, even if there was some missing pavement and no security instalations at all (so easy to fall from the road with your car... ), I hope that since then they finished the work on this road because this route is wonderfull for everything else, the scenery is superb !! If they work on it like for Transfagarasan, it could become a second big touristical point of interest in central Romania and give value to the carpathian romania !

I get your point, the northern slope is a bit more tricky on several places but this is normal having in mind that 67C and 7C are not the main passes across the Carpathians there.

Of course, but now it should'nt be repair as a passe as anyway it is open only 5 month each year or so... the new targets needs to be touristical, this road has a tremendous potential and needs to follow what has been done to Transfagarasan who is now a famous road in Europe (even people who never went in Romania know it now, thanks to Top Gear)

I hope that one day Romania will realise all the exceptional touristical appeal they have.... and find out how to highlight it...

Setting up site camp for Bacau by-pass (first section of A7 motorway). First works have started and hopefully will keep up the pace.

This (buying land in advance of motorway construction) is not working anymore since a long time ago ... ie 2008. But Oradea-Arad motorway is nowhere among priorities so what are we discussing ?!

Now it's not good again that they keep up with a planning on EU financing strictly, and they should move on to another project and so on until nothing is done?! There is a list of priorities posted by the government, and it's all on EU funding core routes. Good !
