No, I'm sure that I saw it several times on A2 but it might be on the bridges. Erm... before you join EU I once want to go by Giurgiu-Ruse bridge but when came there some nice guy said me that I must pay 50€ per person(sic!). Because of that in next year I was travelling to the South through Serbia (but road back by Romania).
And yeah, A2 is quite empty east of Bucharest. But one thing what still makes my angry is that I must to pay for a bridge on Dunay River. Even when I'm travelling Motorway. It wouldn't be such a problem if I could pay in Euro. Yeah, that is only thing that didn't change in Romania (Only Lei!)
But as I said before - you've made a lot of good work. Keep going.

It can't possibly be that much ! Probably the guy was a local "private entrepreneur". But there are some good news here regarding the bridge toll.

Yeah, you're completely right. You can't even buy gas for your car in Euros. That is stupid and very annoying. Even in Serbia (which is not an EU member) you can pay motorway tolls in Euros.

It WAS possible. When I call to embassy they said that there is no minimal or maximal tax and local government can tell that I should pay even more. It was just idiotic for me beacuse that bridge is strategic point for both countries (Romania and Bulgaria) and it should be administrated by government.
At last, it's really good news.
Well there is always ferryboat in Silistra (but "only Lei" again).
When Highway to Constanta will be completed? It's bit annoying that after crossing Danube traffic grows a lot and Highway ends. Are there only plans or some construction is in progress?

Construction is in progress but goes very slowly, it will really kick off this summer. However, if you want to go to Varna for example, the route through Constanta is a big detour.There are no problems anymore at Giurgiu-Ruse, they called for bribe only till 2007 (when we entered EU). After, I haven't encounter such behaviour anymore. The bridge tax is a fixed one, of 6 euro I think.

I know, but it's faster to go through Constanta even it is longer way (better roads). But it's too much of Bulgaria for me lol
I wish to visit Transylvania area and check your brand new Highway
But not at this year.
Wah, since 2005 you've made a great progress. Your roads are just much better than tey used to be (main roads. Secondary roads is still a one bic crap with animals on middle of road etc. But changes need time to work.).

The secondary roads (the DJ - "Drum judetean") are full of animal crap, yes. And this is not change any time soon, maybe not in 30-50 years.

However, we will have enought motorways in 10-15-20 years. And also the DN road network (DN = national road) is pretty good, you will not need to enter the DJ road network.

Indeed, but unfortunately this heavy winter has been a road killer.

Oh that's a cool pic! But it only happened once about 5 years ago. Too bad it only happened once. It's interesting to see this sheep traffic on motorway. They certainly observe the speed limit.


BTW: Erste Bank is the first bank to finance the Comarnic-Brasov PPP with EUR 300 million, with the possibility to increase the amount to EUR 1 billion. So this means the PPP has found the first financing and will certainly find the rest. One of the most difficult part of the PPP has been overcome.

Hallelujah!

First let's see Erste SIGN the contract, then I'm happy. I'm sure that if they sign, they will attract more investors to the contract. They should, PPP for motorways in Romania is a gold mine for big investors.

Lugoj by-pass in western Romania getting closer to completion:

Thanks to nenea_hartia

This by-pass is on the E 70 which goes parallel to A1 section of Corridor IV.

Some extracts of the EU's ISPA programme for the Lugoj by-pass:

Quote:
Measure title: Lugoj By-pass in Romania


The project concerns the construction of a bypass of about 9.4 km around Lugoj town in the Western part of Romania.

The Lugoj municipality is located on the central-east part of Timis County, on both sides of the river Timis, with a total area of about 83 square kilometres and a population of about 52,000 people.

The existing road, which is National Road DN6 and E70 and part of TEN-T and the Southern Branch of the trans-European Corridor IV, passes through the centre of Lugoj town, which suffers from the increasing traffic and has become a significant traffic bottleneck.

The bypass will be constructed as a national road with one lane in each direction, it will be about 9.4 km long, starting at about km 494+100 on DN6 to the East of Lugoj City and finishing at about km 503+000 before entering the Costeiu locality, with roundabouts at both ends linking with the existing DN6, junctions with local roads, a bridge of about 130 m across the Timis river at about km 0+900, an overpass of about 285 m over the Lugoj-Ilia railway and the DN6 at about km 8+400, and an overpass of about 185 m across the DN68A road at about km 3+400. The road will be constructed with a width of 12 m, of which 7 m carriageway and 2 x 2.5 m shoulders. It will pass to the North-East of Lugoj.

^ Thanks for posting the pics here. In addition:
- the contractor is the Portuguese Monteadriano Engenharia E Construçăo SA;
- the road itself is almost completed, with the first layer of asphalt already poured;
- the bridge over Timiş river is now completed; they just need to pour asphalt over it;
- they are working now to complete the bridge over National Road 68A (E 673) (my pics are from that site), the long bridge over Lugoj-Ilia railway and National Road 6 (E 70) and four roundabouts.
