Actually, there are (distant) plans for Moldova to continue A 4 all the way to Chisinau.

In Moldova there are no motorways according to the european way of defining it, but there are some roads with expressway characteristics (grade-separated intersections, no villages), some even 2+2, mostly near Chisinau.

Does Moldova have any motorway program? Do they plan to build any motorways?

There was an older plan supported by Romania under the TACIS EU funding programme to make a connection between Corridor IV - Iasi and Ungheni-Chisinau (it also included the construction of a motorway bridge at Ungheni), but nothing happened due to the worsening of relations between the 2 countries.

Hopefully, Romania will be able to lobby the EU for the coming EU budgetary cycle and get EU funding for A4 and its continuation to Chisinau.

BREAKING NEWS !!!

And very orange news I might say...

Vectra Service has finally started the works for the last section of the Sibiu bypass. They have filled the entire (future) construction site with orange topographic landmarks:









Oh my God ! Brand new concrete !!



That's it, guys and gals! That's the entire section which Vectra should build. You can see in the horizon the bridge over Sibiu-Mediaş railway, the end project of Section I of the bypass. I would really love to know which bonehead in Ministry of Transports have decided to give that microscopic section to another contractor, when a solid consortium like Max Bögl/Geiger/Contram was already on the site with men an machines, building the first 14,4 kilometers.

Oh crap. That's how long that section is? Is that 1-2 km or what?!

I sure hope that those at Vectra will finish it until December.

Hey, I was doing a trip to Germany last year (Bad Oeynhausen) to check out the A30 works which were started 1.5 year ago. I was shocked to see only orange picket poles were planted So this isn't too bad

I think we all know why those topographic landmarks are orange instead of red or yellow.

Oh, new concrete. Now that's a progress.

Anyway, hope they'll finish it in time.

So... well done Romania
I've been driveing through Romania since 2005. And everytime(yeah, I'm always going to Bulgaria) I can see that you made a progress. But there is still a lot of work, including CB (it's a one big crap, I don't know which is worse, driveing through Bucaresti or it's bypass).
And there is one another big problem. Is A2 east of Bucarest is quite new? I'm asking, because when I was on it las year I could see that it's starting to have "koleiny" (I don't know this word, google says that its "rut").

Yes, A2, also called 'Autostrada Soarelui' (Suns motorway) is quite new. Bucharest - Drajna was opened in 2004 (106 km), Drajna - Fetesti in 2007 (37 km) and Fetesti - Cernavoda was re-opened for traffic, after major rehabilitation works (17 km - opened in 1987).

I am sorry but I don't understand what 'koleiny' or 'rut' means.

Rutting is deformation of the pavement by heavy traffic, specifically trucks which create tracks in the pavement. This is common on asphalt motorways that doesn't have much maintenance. However, hot summers can exacerbate this problem because the pavement gets soft. I remember Poland banning truck traffic for a few days because they created so much tracks in the soft asphalt.

Thank you for explaining this ChrisZwolle.

I don't know if A2 is starting rutting because I live in the other part of the country, but I must say that on A2, as far as I know, there is not so much heavy traffic but there are many small cars from Bucharest going at Mamaia. But I might be wrong with the heavy traffic.
If you want to see rutting roads you should go in Hungary on M43 Nagylak - Mako - Szeged. There are some horrible paths made by trucks. Thank god that this year the motorway will be completed.

I am taking A2 quite often and I can say that the only places where I feel deformation (if they are deformations) are the bridge interlocks. Other than that, the motorway is pretty smooth.

BTW: A2 is usually pretty busy with trucks on the first lane.

A1 though needs a new layer of asphalt. But it's an old motorway. I think that Sasza is actually referring to A1, as he would usually go to Bulgaria by Giurgiu-Ruse bridge, so he cannot take A2.

On CB (Bucharest ring) there are though some serious "ruts" caused by heat and heavy trucks. Hopefully, they have fixed them N of Bucharest and this year they'll start working on the expansion in S Bucharest which will fix the "ruts" there as well.
