PS: Nice pictures. Litro looks very futuristic.
Actually they didn't. Litro is the particular brand name for A2. It'll be interesting if they choose the same brand name and design for Transylvania Motorway.

Cât de mult% de drumuri naţionale din România în stare bună? Oricine stie? În Polonia, aproximativ 60% din drumurile naţionale sunt în stare bună UA tine?

There are nice pics of Romanian roads showing their quality as well.

In Romania, situation changed quite a lot in the last 7-8 years, and many national roads were rehabilitated. I think about 50-60% are good or very good regarding pavement. But the problem remains the fact that our DN's pass too much through villages (about 30% of the whole distance is in a village or town), and there are not many km's of motorways (just 321). So the average speed through Romania is about 70km/h.

Thank you. In Poland, the situation looks something like this:



The map was done by people from the forum.

Gray - not tested.
Green - road in good condition.
Yellow - road in medium condition.
Red - road in bad condition.
Blue - road under repair.

For those who do not know about this overpass project in Bucharest, I'll post a few renders. It's going to be completed this year in fall:

2500. And wtf do you mean by "creationist"?

Anyway, those motorways are taken straight from that 2006 (?) law regarding national infrastructure projects and the map isn't finished yet.

I see it as a nice basic network. Many cities are still unconnected or lack connections to other larger cities.

Let's do A1 through A5 first and then we'll see about the rest on that map. More than what's on the map seems really, really far-fetched right now.

If you look at countries with developed motorway networks, you'll see basically any 100,000 + city has at least one motorway connection, and those cities are also linked to eachother by motorways, i.e. a network that's more than just some radial routes from the capital.

Of course, you have to look at this for Romania as a long-term plan, the French motorway network took 40 years to be "completed" as well. I agree A1 - A5 are good plans for the coming decade, and additional motorways after 2020.

Is there currently a strong trend to suburbanization? This will require additional urban motorways and expressways because cities will grow in size and you need high-standard roads to bypass numerous traffic lights and residential areas (just like urban expressways are constructed in Bucharest right now, only then outside the current urban areas).

Mobility trends we've seen in Western Europe;

1) growing mobility of the workforce. Villages transform from self-sufficient agricultural areas to commuter towns.

2) growing amount of women with at least part-time jobs. Many households own 2 cars. This also means more commuter traffic and more car traffic in school zones because of parents dropping off their kids to school on the way to their job.

3) More off-peak traffic. Rush hour traffic spills over in off-peak hours, combined with an ageing population who retain their mobility.

4) More truck traffic due to the "just-in-time" economy, where shops do not keep a large stock anymore. Supermarkets are supplied up to six times per day by a large truck.

There is a trend of suburbanisation, but only in large cities which are included in the currently U/C motorway networks. For example, in the case of Bucharest, A1 and the future A3 are already entering the suburban or urban areas of Bucharest for several km.

Weird enough, there were still expansion works at the ring even as it was functional already at 2x2 (maybe an expansion to 2x3?):
