Nope. And probably won't be open untill whole segment it is finished since Police (and other authorities) rightfully consider that Popasului street (a narrow 1+1 urban street) won't cope with traffic induce by a motorway.

So probably we will not have an early opening for segment between Bucharest bypass and Popasului street (which is already finished, as far as I know) and will have to wait for whole segment to be finish (late this year if final building permit, for segment between Popasului street and Bucharest - Constanta railway, will be issued soon. This segment is on Voluntari town jurisdiction, and some people say that local authorities have some special claims in order to issue that permit.

Nope. We care about those only during summer, when we want to reach Greece seaside faster.
But really, from our pointof view, Giurgiu - Ruse bridge was build by soviets, Vidin - Calafat was build by bulgarians. So no contribution from our side.

After such a statement, wouldn't it be better if the European Commission stops all the funding to Romania and provides it to other EU countries like Hungary, Croatia, Slovakia. Then we shall all see how you will finish your beloved A1 through the Carpathians, let alone the other highways.

Speaking of the other highways, there is intense work going on on A3 Ogra - Targu Mures Lot 2 (10.1km). Here's a video some three weeks old that hasn't been posted here yet (Lot 2 begins at min 7:25).



Meanwhile, the construction companies in charge of building A3 Campia Turzii - Ogra (3 lots, 37.2 km) are warming up in anticipation of the issue of the environmental and building permits for the respective lots. So basically the situation is pretty much unchanged for many months now - this is so retarded, I would be curious to know if such a stupid bureaucracy exists in any other country at EU level.

And same situation as mentioned above for A3 Nadaselu - Mihaiesti (16.8 km).

The issue from what I have observed from following the Romanian road infrastructure forums and newspapers and situation on the ground from the last few years is that when projects get tendered in Romania, they are not well prepared before actually tendering.

If you decide now in Austria to build a motorway, it will take maybe 5 years (or more!) to have all the permits done. Biggest of that is the environmental impact assessment, which is most often challenged in various stages, mostly ending at the supreme court level.
When that is finally legal, then the ASFINAG tenders, and a few months later, construction actually starts; construction is really just construction, no design.

In Romania, the process is rather:
- A politician (randomly) decides that a motorway shall be built (this changes very often, too..)
- Maybe there is an old feasibility study available that is reused
- A tender gets done using that study
- Winners are declared, contested, etc.. Takes a rather long time, often because the tender was not very well prepared and evaluated. This is clearly a failure of the road management company's staff..
- When a winner is actually found, he redesigns the project within certain limits, most of the time to make it cheaper for him to build it
- When that design is finally done and approved by the road authority, the process for obtaining permits starts; as said above on the example of Austria, this takes years in other countries, so why should it work easily within even 6-12 months in Romania?

Thus, I think the whole process must change. Projects must have approval before they are tendered; only then you can make realistic assumptions on when you will be able to spend all the EU funding money...

Great post! The situation is just as you described it! Unfortunately, things won't change very soon, at least not while the current government is in charge.

In the absence of fresh videos of the motorways U/C, here's a timelapse of the Ciurel Overpass in Bucharest.

No, there is no chance for this. Probably next year we hill have a big opening from Holdea to Soimus (Deva), leaving only a 15km strech of old national road between Sibiu and western border. But this gap will stay in place for the next 4 years at least.

Let's just say that Lot 3 Holdea to Ilia is scheduled for opening this year (Fall, probably). Of course, as we have learned, in reality anything could happen, but for now let's stick to this estimate and we will see how works will be progressing in the coming period.

Regarding Lot 4 Ilia - Deva, oficially this part is also supposed to open to traffic by the end of this year, however this is regarded as unrealistic by the vast majority of the experienced users in the Romanian infrastructure forum - although, as soon as the construction permit (works had been suspended for a while due to lack of) was issued a few weeks back, the company in charge has mobilized like an army of workers (more than 500) and things are progressing at a fast pace.

AFAIK, the Calafat bridge had also some Romanian contribution. Giurgiu-Ruse was a Stalin plan, admitedly the only good Stalin plan.

If you are saying Romania has no need of new bridges with Bulgaria, thus handling a considerable amount of traffic from Turkey, Greece, Hungary and Central Europe, Ukraine, Russia as well as our mutual one, you are a complete joke. Instead you are even begging EU to give you money for a local bridge connecting 4 cities/towns, namely Braila, Galac, Macin and Tulca. If you want that bridge, fine do it yourselves.
By the way, pay attention next time when you enter Bulgaria heading towards Greece. You could experience a very good vacation if don't obey the speed limits.
