Will the 2.5 x 2 lanes be concrete blocks separated as in the case of Ploiesti or Adunatii Copaceni by-passes?

The bypass is only 1+1 + shoulders (something like E-85) so directions can't be separated.

OK. Thanks. I guess the bypass will do for the moment, until A1 will be completed on that section.

Aveti grija daca treceti prin orasul Pecica, judetul Arad:

Little by little we learn how to organize bidings and build motorways.

News regarding A3

Hi guys, it seems that after this afternoon's discussions between PM Boc and Bechtel officials has been decided that this year will be completed the 10kms between Campia Turzii and Turda + another 10kms between Gilau and Nadasel (junction with E81). Personally, I doubt the latest will happen, but the 10kms between Campia and Turda will be for sure completed.

It all depends on how much money the government has got to spend....

Romania, U.S. Builder Bechtel To Sign Agreement For Another 20 Km Of Transylvania Hwy

Romania’s government and U.S. constructor Bechtel will sign an agreement in April whereby the company will continue works on Romania's Transylvania Highway and build another sector of nearly 20 kilometers.

Prime Minister Emil Boc on Monday met with the Romanian management of Bechtel, as the company wanted to know whether the Romanian authorities are willing to continue works on the highway this year.

Boc said at the end of talks that the government, via the Transport Ministry, and Bechtel will sign a protocol whereby construction works on the highway will continue, adding the Romanian authorities in April will pay a new installment of the country's debt to Bechtel for construction works finalized so far.

"The government shall spot financial sources from the perspective of budget revisions, so as to keep jobs and continue construction works," Boc said.

Sources close to the matter said a solution would be to finance works from commitment appropriations set in ratio with the volume of works and paid upon finalization.

The government estimates works on nearly 20 kilometers of the Transylvania Highway will be finalized this year and two thirds of workers will be kept.

The employment agency in Cluj county, northwestern Romania, received Monday from Bechtel a notification on the layoff of over 1,900 employees from the construction site of the Transylvania Highway, but the agency said legal procedures for layoffs have been breached.

Local employment agency manager Daniel Don said Monday he hopes the layoffs will not be followed through, since this might only be "pressure" applied by Bechtel to recover overdue debts from the Romanian Government for works on the Transylvania Highway.

Bechtel said early February that all the 1,933 employees of the company who work on the Transylvania Highway construction site would be laid off as Romania's public road authority CNADNR failed to pay its EUR214 million debt to the company.

The Romanian management of U.S. constructor Bechtel and local union representatives agreed recently that works would continue on the 10.2 km Campia-Turzii - Turda segment of the Transylvania Highway, bringing the overall distance to 50 kilometers to be completed, as long as financing is provided.

Bechtel finalized the first 42 kilometers of the Transylvania Highway, namely the Turda-Gilau sector, until December 1, 2009. Transylvania Highway links central Brasov to western Bors on the border with Hungary.

The construction of Transylvania Highway started in 2004 based on a EUR2.2 billion contract attributed to Bechtel. Works were halted mid-2005, when authorities started looking into contracts concluded under the previous government. The deadline for the completion of works was extended until 2013 from the initial 2012.

Gov’t to pay EUR 220 M arrears to Bechtel


While in Zalau Friday, Premier Emil Boc announced work will continue this year on Transylvania highway, with the Turda-Campia Turzii stretch and 18 kms on the Gilau-Huedin section being the priority. Also, the state will pay this month a new instalement of its debt to the motorway’s constructor, Bechtel. ‘The portion of the Gilau-Suplacu de Barcau section also needs to be taken care of’, Emil Boc told a press conference, according to Mediafax. He also announced the Romanian state would pay arrears worth EUR 220 M owed to Bechtel.

‘An instalment was paid in February, and another one will be paid this month. We will meet Bechtel officials next week to establish the exact work timetable,’ Boc specified, according to whom despite the crisis, efforts will be made to keep Bechtel’s workforce employed. The remark was directly related to Bechtel’s early February announcement of likely collective layoffs consequence of the National Road and Motorway National Company’s failure to meet debt obligations.

Guys, ALL THESE ARE NEGOCIATIONS BETWEEN BECHTEL AND THE GOV. And when you negociate, you say a lot of crap. Do you remember how Bechtel threatens that it will lay off 1900+ employees? It is doing this since January.

Bechtel: "we will lay off people". Gov: "we don't have money, screw you."

Because the Gov. is incompetent and the money is scarce, they negociate and negociate... and of course we don't have the motorway u/c.

Just wait for the bugdet adjustment, then we'll see exactly how much money the Gov. can pay Bechtel.

PS: and remember that Bechtel CAN work without being paid. If the Gov. can pay the whole 200 mil. entirely by april, than Bechtel can finish 20-30 km this year without any problems.

The best option for Bechtel is to get people working, not laying them off. It's a great contract for them, they are interested in keeping it. If this contract was bad for them, they would have canceled it long time ago...

There are news about the possible tendering this year of the Craiova-Pitesti expressway mean to connect the 2 car building cities in Romania:



This expressway is part of the agreement with Ford when the company chose to come to Romania. Hopefully this will be continue to Calafat through a motorway sooner than the rest of the A6/A7.

It will also be a connection between A1 and A7/6.

good day collegues,

just reading posts from last pages and it looks like there are some tenders to be announced this year.

on the other hands the government struggles to find money to secure present construction works.

so the question is:

is money secured for next tenders ? does it come from EU-budget ? or all tender costs would be covered from Romanian budget ? if so (and based on Betchel case) do you have strict procedures to be sure reserved money will not go to striking miners, or any other sudden need ?

Hi there!

The works for the tenders anounced latelly (for Nadlac-Arad motorway, and Pitesti-Craiova expressway) will be financed by EU funds mostly. Transilvania Motorway is a totally different case and the budgetary crisis caused by the finalcial crisis does have an impact on the financing for this motorway, moreso as there are limitations on the loans the gov may take to finance infrastructure works by the IMF agreement and Eurozone accession process.

We are waiting for some agreements for financing with the Chinese Government this year for A4 hopefully in a PPP structure.

As to the money for infrastructure which is not funded by the EU, it is not a matter of procedures, but a matter of sources of funding. As the national budget gets resources on a continuous and fluctuating basis, it is difficult to predict how much will be received and therefore how much will be spent. That's why the government makes 2-3 budget revisions a year to adapt to this fluctuation.

Practical question:

How is the road from Constanta to Tulcea? In good shape?
And the road from Tulcea al the way to Iasi?

I'm planning a business trip for that part of the country.

greetings from snow white Cluj

Constanta to Tulcea is to be avoided.
From Tulcea to Braila, Galati, one of the best in the country.

Or you can go to Galati and take the cruise ship on the Danube to Tulcea.
