I do have to say that most of the commute is from the string of villages right to the north. Bucharest is different from western European capitals in that it's one extremely compact mass surrounded by almost nothing. Even the neighboring county residences aren't much to look at (except maybe Ploiești) as Bucharest concentrates most of the wealth in the region in a very centralized manor.

Look at this satellite picture, the only urban agglomeration near to Bucharest is Giurgiu, at the border:

The motorway was planned with 6 lanes because it will also carry the trafic to Moldova on this section, once Ploiesti - Focsani motorway will open.

Until then, the entire Moldovian traffic is carried by E85.

I thought they postponed the 3rd lane for later on?

Construction works on the Comarnic-Brasov highway will be finished until January 2014 and will cost Romania EUR4.8 billion.

I don't believe that even journalists from Medifax cannot see the difference between construction costs and PPP costs !!!

The construction works per se cost 1.3 billion while the financing, taxes, maintenance and repairs for 30 freaking years will make the rest !!

They postponed the 3rd lane only between Moara Vlasiei(km 19) and the future Dumbrava interchange(km 45) afaik. The contract with the italians from Tirrena was signed from the begining for a motorway with 3 lanes. I visited the construction site and the motorway seems to be large enough for 3+3.

@ Mihai90:

This is the main road from Brasov to Ploiesti? At least I think so because of the railway.
I love that road.............when it is empty

Some good Google Earth photo explanations of the stage of work for A3 between Bucharest and Ploiesti:

I've found that if you zoom a little closer on Google Earth there are some good quality imagery of ground level works on the site.

Sorry for the small size , you know the rules, 800x600 only .



PS: The works might be 50% complete, if you reckon that laying the asphalt is the simplest part and we can already see some large sections nearing completion here. PM Boc said that works are on a "accelerated rhythm" , let's hope they get the job done this year.


Thanks Suburban!

When Top Gear team is crossing the Transfagarasan pass are they crossing it from north to south or from south to north?

From south to north, they were coming from Bucharest via Pitesti.

Sibiu bypass, part of the Pan-European corridor IV, February 19 updates. You can see on the map the places where the pictures were taken. Unfortunately Vectra Service hasn't started yet the works for the second section of the bypass.



1. Calea Guşteriţei overpass:

Partea nasoala e ca e prea mult noroi pe acolo, care e dus de catre camioane pe toate drumurile din zona fara sa intereseze pe nimeni acest aspect.

4. The motorway is passing over Braşov - Sibiu railway. The Italians of Todini started the works two years ago by building the pillars but the beams were finally mounted these days by the Max Bgl/Geiger/Contram consortium:

Finally some pictures again, thanks!

Can't wait when the good wheather will come back in RO, than there will be bigger progress to see. Luckily they will also finish 10 km A3 at Campia Turzii - Turda, that safes me a lot of time when I have to travel to Bucuresti
