Probably because of this:

Is good to see that u still have your hopes up...

The minister makes a theoretical speculation (speculation is his key word) in between 100 and 0, and the article comes to the blunt (no argument whatsoever) conclusion that it will be 0. Not 1, not 10, not 40, but mere 0. Doesn't matter WHY!

Too bad the authors do not make the same bet to come out with fathers on their behind like the other journalist who lost his stupid bet and had to expose himself in the public with fathers in his behind.

PS: Articolele de genul asta nu sunt "incurajatoare", ci le pot numi manele, care se vand bine.

First, it's "father's in his behind". Second, you have a twisted mind.

Sibiu bypass, March 30 updates

Vectra Service has finally started the works for the second section of the bypass, but in slow motion for now; working full steam is to be expected just after Easter holidays:

Sibiu bypass - April 09 updates:

1) First, Vectra Service's site (pretty static, I must say):






Mystery solved: there will be a roundabout at the end of the bypass, as for the A3 motorway in Turda:

2) There's a different approach on the other site, where the German-Romanian joint venture Geiger/Max Bögl/Contram is working to finish its job by the end of this year:

The motorway is passing over National Route 14 (Sibiu - Mediaş) and the access from the road on the motorway will be made using a roundabout:

And bad news for the PPP signed a few months ago. The consortium cannot get the financing, it seems.

Quote:
Vinci-Aktor Construction Group May Drop Romanian Hwy Segment Contract

The Vinci-Aktor consortium, winner of the auction for the construction of the Romanian Comarnic-Brasov highway, may drop the concession contract because the group lacks financing for the EUR1.5 billion project, people close to the matter told MEDIAFAX.

The sources said that in the event the group does drop the contract, an analysis will determine whether the project needs changes, whether concession is still feasible and when the auction could be held again.

Romanian Transport Minister Radu Berceanu, the president of French group Vinci and a representative of Greek company Aktor signed, on January 18, the lease contract for the Comarnic-Brasov highway segment, a project due to be completed in January 2014.

At the time, Berceanu said the European Investment Bank (EIB) is interested in financing the project. However, EIB vice-president Mathias Kollatz-Ahnen said in March that negotiations had not started, adding that such projects are large, complex and not easily financed in the current context.

This project is Romania's first lease-based highway construction contract. Work on the 55-kilometer highway segment will cost Romania EUR4.8 billion.

And....bad news. Vinci/Aktor announced officially they will rescind the contract! This bodes not well for the Romanian motorway system! A lot of plans were made for other PPPs and here the first PPP goes bust as a result of the winning consortium's incapacity to get the money!

I'm not an expert, but 4.8 billions for 55 km seems to me a lot of money

So the problem is that they don't have the resources to build this motorway, or the government ?
