CNADNR has tendered the 33 km of A1 - the Deva-Orastie by-pass:

http://www.cnadnr.ro/proiect_pcd.php?id=208

A map of current motorway projects in Romania:



Orange: existing motorways
Green: currently U/C
Red: tendered (basically the Deva-Orastie section currently in search for a construction company)
Magenta: Gov prepares tender docs to be tendered soon


Unfortunately, the works are not going as well as planned at the beginning of the year as the government has far less money for motorway construction than anticipated due to low budgetary revenues due to the ******* never-ending crisis.

Arad-Pitesti motorway sections winners ready by June

The Government is launching a tender for the construction of the 1.7 billion Euro Arad-Timisoara-Lugoj-Deva-Sibiu-Pitesti motorway, for which winners of two sections will be announced by June 2010. The Company of Motorways and National Roads in Romania (CNADNR) has said that six companies are interested in constructing the Lugoj-Deva and Orastie-Sibiu sections. The construction works on the 181.5 km motorway will be 85 per cent financed from European Union funds and 15 per cent financed from the state’s budget for a total completion date of June 2014. CNADNR also published an announcement for the construction of Deva-Orastie ring road at motorway standards, estimated to be worth 253.3 million Euro

I thought A4 was reserved for a Târgu Mureş - Iaşi connection?

Yes, we thought the same. But it seems CNADNR (National Company of Roads and Motorways) have a different opinion on this. But again, nothing is sure yet.

I hope they'll not name A4 that stretch of motorway of 23 km long. It's just part of A2. They could name it A20 or something like that. A stand-alone motorway should not have only 23 km long.

I wonder how they made such decisions back in the 1950's / 1960's in the Netherlands when there were only a few hundred kilometers of motorways. Yet somehow they had numbers for about 50 of 'em, which were later mostly constructed.

In road numbering from scratch, you really need to have a futuristic outlook. Make sure you have spare numbers for motorways that may look improbable now.

Agreed. But first let's see it finished and afterwards they can name it any way they want.

Yes, but to do that you need vision, which I'm afraid the current board of CNADNR hasn't.

Do you know the progress of the by-pass?

Speaking of A2. I remember it become kind of unfamous when it opened for not having gas stations. I believe this has changed ever since, but I would apreciate if someone can tell me how many there are currently between Bucuresti and Cernavoda.

I know the problem. They only tendered them later in 2008. There are 6 gas stations now - 2 Litro gas stations, 2 OMV and 2 Petrom:

Litro gas stations (formerly known-as Rompetrol):





OMV:


Petrom:
