A2 "Sun Motorway" from Bucharest to Cernavoda. (Pan-European Corridor IV)

Yesterday, May 6th, a gorgeous day and a very relaxed and slow 110 km/h drive on A2, 160 km of 21st century Romanian civilisation.

Enjoy!

Somewhere around 50 km from Bucharest


A2-DN21 interchange (overpasses visible)


Near Fetesti (the A2 motorway bridges and the railway bridges over the Danube - "Borcea" Branch) (PS: You have to pay 10 RON, about 2,40 euros for ONE crossing over the river)



Near Cernavoda, preparing to cross the Danube


Crossing the Danube river, near Cernavoda (You can see the railway and motorway bridges - awesome infrastructure, some of the best Romania has to offer)





Cernavoda interchange, the end of the motorway But wait! You can see there that the works on Cernavoda-Constanta (the final A2 motorway segment) are under way.

(sorry for the poor image, couldn't get a better shot, I was driving )

... And the icing on the cake... works on Constanta Bypass motorway, near Constanta, the interchange with DN3!

(again, sorry for the poor picture, but you can get an idea, I saw a LOT of people working)

Hope you enjoyed it.

Awesome pictures!

BTW: On the left is the Anghel Saligni Bridge, after the Romanian architect with the same name, built at the end of the 19th century, and was the most awesome bridges in the entire continental Europe at the time!

Quote:
The Anghel Saligny Bridge (formerly King Carol I Bridge) was built between 1890 and 1895 in Romania over the Danube and Borcea and when it was completed it then became the longest bridge in Europe and the third longest in the world.

The bridge has a length of 4,037 metres of which 1662 m over the Danube and 920 m over Borcea and was designed by Romanian engineer Anghel Saligny. It is 30 metres above the water, allowing tall ships to pass under it. The bridge has four spans of 140 metres and one of 190 metres.

Procedura constructie autostrazi

Hello - Just a quick curiosity

Is there a standard procedure/steps in building a motorway?
I noticed that for Arad-Timisoara they started building the bridges and overpasses and on Bucuresti-Ploiesti they left the bridges as the last step.

Is there a standard recommendation here ?

Thanks ChrisZwolle! Do you have a complete list (or GE file) for the update? Thanks!

Cunoaste cineva care va fi traseul A3 pe langa Ploiesti? Din ce se vede deocamdata pe Google Earth, autostrada intra, la sud de Ploiesti, direct in soseaua de centura recent inaugurata, si nu are inca o intentie de prelungire spre nord, spre Comarnic.
Descrierea pe care am gasit-o pe net nu ma ajuta foarte mult:

"Incepand cu km 51, orientarea generala a aliniamentului este catre nord-vest si aliniamentul autostrazii trece peste paraul Ghighiu, apoi prin sudul localitatii Buchilasi, prin nord-estul localitatii Rafov si ale padurii Rafoveanca traversand extremitatile acesteia. Dupa aproximativ 700 m, autostrada traverseaza paraul Ghighiu, apoi drumul comunal DJ 1010 (DN1A – Moara Domneasca), la aproximativ 300 m de la parau. Autostrada urmeaza directia vestica, traversand o serie de drumuri rurale (agricole), iar Paraul Barcanesti este traversat la km 58.

Autostrada Bucuresti-Ploiesti se va intalni cu DN 1 unde va fi construita o intersectie pentru a permite accesul la si de la autostrada. Un pasaj superior va fi construit pentru a traversa DN 1. Dupa ce trece DN 1, autostrada va avea o tendinta generala catre nord-vest. Va traversa un canal de deversare deja existent. De aici autostrada va fi conectata printr-un drum de legatura cu 4 benzi cu DN 1 care va fi extins de la cele doua benzi existente la patru benzi, intalnindu-se cu DN 1 in apropierea drumului de acces spre Tatarani; aceasta legatura va fi realizata printr-o ocolire. "

Multumesc anticipat.

P.S.
The only way all this would be built, is if every year we have elections

Maybe it would be wiser to build a motorway triangle between Calafat-Drobeta Turnu Severin-Craiova. IMO,it would make corridor IV more competitive to corridor X and it would improve transportation and investment opportunities in that region.

I wonder why Galaţi and Brăila don't have a motorway planned. They form an urban agglomeration of over 500,000 people.

The motorway planned from Drobeta Severin to Calafat is necessary i think it would be better to build a motorway from Arad to Oradea imo.
