CNADNR tenders construction of 11.5 km of a section of CB between DN2 and A2 TO 2X2 road with grade-separated intersections.
Other 10 km of the northern belt are currently U/C between A1 and DN7.




CNADNR is planning to tender A8 this year (design + build).

A1 Lugoj - Deva LOT 4 (22.65 km). Video only covers that part of the lot that's way behind schedule due to environmental issues (bats/beavers/etc) that have repeatedly hindered the commencement of construction work. For about 1km (min. 2:40 - 5:10) the motorway will be located in between the national road and the hill, and there will be a huge wall (~ 20 m tall, if I recall correctly) to "hold" the hill.

In my opinion, that section is a really bad design.

- A short tunnel through the mountain (~1 km needed) would have been an alternative; but yes, seems that these are not popular in Romania :-(
- Or even giving up that segment of DN76 and to reuse the road as one of the carriageways, and thus building less into the hill, would be a viable alternative. Of course than to replace DN76, one has to provide an exit to DN76/DJ706 on the west end of the hill so that people can still get on to DN76 northwards. That additional exit could do with just two of the exit relations instead of four, to serve as a replacement. Of course, that wouldn't provide for vehicles that are not allowed on the motorway, but one could have figured building a very low profile service road for that.




More west, I think it's a bit of a shame that the motorway is that close to the river bank, that reminds me of designs from the 70s and 80s... :-( Again, a short tunnel could have avoided the close proximity to the river, and the need to relocate parts of DJ706A.




Likely, with these two options, the issues with bats, beavers, etc. would have been avoided as well.
(Yes, I know that I am doing now the same as the design company did, namely drawing the route from an office desk :-) )

Yes, totally...

The National Road Company doesn't have competence in tunneling, doesn't have specialists for tunneling, and it seems that they are trying to postpone as much as possible the moment to deal with this issue. Even for A1 Lugoj - Deva Lot 2, where 2 tunnels (one of them a few hundred meters long, the other ~ 1,500 - 2,000 m) were supposed to be tendered by now, the new minister of T first said that they would make a study to see if the tunnels were really necessary, only to make up his mind again and say that the tunnels will be built. A few, precious months were lost because of these changes of plans, back and forth. So yeah, they need to hire some tunneling specialists soon, since A1 through the mountains is next in line for construction anyway, so it's really inevitable that they start building tunnels.

Regarding A1 Lugoj - Deva LOT 4, I'm pretty sure that the motorway was initially supposed to be located on the other side of the river Mures btw. Soimus and Branisca (crossing the river twice), but they eventually figured out that there isn't enough room there (there's the Mintia Power Plant and also some heavily build-up areas). So they came up with this solution - which does seem kind of strange.

But anyway, here's some renders of it:

Exit Soimus



Viaduct before the hill

Viaduct after the hill

Will both be fully grade-separated and have expressway standard? I think that other 4-laned CB sections have (partially) at-grade junctions or roundabounts. When have works b/n A1 and DN7 been started and when are they expected to be completed?

The advance is promising. Any update regarding the connecting bridge?

Any clue what is the difference in altitude in this section of the A3?

Not official dates:
Gilau I/C is around 385/390m
Nadaselu I/C around 400m

Highest elevation between those two around 560m.

Evaluation of tenders now...

There's updates all the time: from court... this or that bidding company was disqualified/penalized/etc for this or that reason, then court rules in favor of this or that party involved, then the other party appeals the decision and so on. Very boring and it takes soooo long. Hopefully in the summer we will have a winner. And then probably another round of appeals, court rulings, appeals, etc before actual construction works start.

UPDATE A1 Lugoj - Deva LOT 4 (22.65 km). This one covers more of the lot than the previous video on May 1st, yet still not the whole thing (about 6 km toward Lugoj missing from the video, but that part is basically ready). Make sure to set the speed to 2x, video is too long.

Is the Grindeanu government that bad in communication?
Do they really skip granted IPA-funds?

It's "just" a 2+2, indeed on the render it looks like a "downtown LA number of lanes" :-)

No specific comment to this project, but if you look at the absorption rate for EU funds, Romania is right there at the bottom.. So, yes, they have skipped many hundreds of millions of funds already, so at least that would be a consequent stance they take

Still not fully clear to me how they want to fit a 2+2 + emergency band motorway in here:



If at least the plan would be to have it stacked, maybe even over the national road (at the foot of the hill).

Well, really curious to see how this will look in the final configuration- but I can only assume, it will be very ugly...

We're all waiting to see. Guys on the Romanian forum that know more about the project use the words "massive" and "spectacular". The wall will probably compete with that of Donald Trump.

It should't take too long, they have a large # of workers on the ground, like 500 or something.
