Tulcea - Izmail is only 15 km, but you need to cross the start of the Danube river delta. Does that area flood? Otherwise you need a 15 km long causeway across the floodplains.

I agre with that.

There were official plans to build an expressway Ramnicu sarat- Braila (72km) but seems that this project was dropp it (it's not valid anymore on CNADR website). Still in force is the project Galati- Braila expressway (12.8 km).
As far as i red, the new suggestion is to build an expressway Braila- Buzau which will be more straight ahead to Bucharest.
I don't understand what you mean. You mean an expressway from Braila directly to Bucharest?

Quote:
As for your suggestion to intersect A2 from Braila to Calarasi- Silistra, first has to be a real project to build a new bridge over Danube otherwise it's useless..
There's already an agreement of principles between the RO and BG governments for a bridge there, and the two governments are looking for EU funding. Having a bridge there and the flow of traffic from Ukraine and Moldova and even Russia coming from the north of Romania, a motorway connecting A5 and Galati-Braila with this new bridge makes a lot of sense IMO. Calafat-Vidin bridge for Corridor IV, Giurgiu-Ruse for Corridor IV as well, and Calarasi-Silistra for Corridor IX.



And my proposal is in dark green. Bulgaria will also want to connect Silistra cutting through A2 and A1 to Turkey through a motorway. Or maybe take it to Varna and then continue A4 all the way to the Turkish border. This way, Corridor IX expands all the way to Turkey via Romania and Bulgaria. \ And Calarasi-Silistra bridge gains a lot of economic sense. And it will close even better the so called Black Sea motorway which goes around the Black Sea:

Of course there is no way one can build a viaduct in the Delta. That's one of Europe's most preserved natural areas and indeed a unique delta on our continent.

No. My idea was similar with the official one. An express road (or even better- motorway) connecting Galati- Braila- Buzau. In Buzau would be the link with A5 (Buzau- Ploiesti- Bucharest). Another and older version was to link Braila- Galati to A5 in Rm Sarat but it looks less feasible....

Calafat-Vidin bridge for Corridor IV, Giurgiu-Ruse for Corridor IV as well, and Calarasi-Silistra for Corridor IX...

This i dont understand. Giurgiu- Ruse is a part of Cooridor no IX not IV. Maybe your idea is to make a third balcanic branch of the Corridor no IV besides Lugoj- Deva- Sibiu-Pitesti- Bucharest- Constanta and Arad- Timisoara- Lugoj- Tr Severin- Calafat- Vidin?

However why to develop 2 parallel european corridors over danube? Bucharest- Giurgiu- Ruse- veliko tarnovo... / Braila- Galati- calarasi- Silistra. These 2 would be separated by only 80 km or less

I believe the direction Galati- Braila- Buzau- Ploiesti- Bucharest- Giurgiu- Ruse - Veliko Tarnovo- Stara Zagora fulfills all traffic needs and we don't need a second one coming from Galati- Braila- crossing danube in Calarasi-Sillistra and going to Turkey or to bulgarian seaside (?). At least in the near future..

Looking better to your map, it looks an interesting idea. However first the 2 countries have to develop the actual Corridor no IX and maybe later to develop a secondaru branch to the bulgarian seaside. Of course it means to give up of the extended black sea motorway Constanta- Varna- Burgas. 3 Parallel motorways will be too much ( 1.bucuresti- giurgiu- ruse- tarnovo- stara zagora/ 2.galati-braila-calarasi-silistra- varna/ 3.constanta -varna-burgas

At least from the touristic point of view the extended black sea motorway it looks to have sense for me..

There are already projects for these links, so why not? Somewhere around 2025, it could be fesable. Great link over to Moldova(s) (the region and the republic), from Turkey. Just a thought
+1

I was thinking the same thing. A motorway from Ramnicu Sarat (closest town from A5) - Galati/Braila - Tulcea - Constanta (then down to Varna)

This option is indeed a very good one as well, provided that the bridge at Braila enters some planning with EU funding, otherwise I don't think it will be built. The Danube there is at its widest, almost 1 km in span, and deepest, so it is more expensive than the bridge currently U/C at Calafat/Vidin.

We can dream don't we?

I would love a suspension bridge.



At least the deepth of Danube is no problem.

Yeah!

In fact, the motorway linking Braila-Galati to A4 and Constanta, and the bridge (as well as the proposed airport) would reignite the conurbation project that would make Gal-Bra the second largest urban area in Romania and would launch its economic development seriously.

There are 2 suitable islands west from Silistra-Calarasi. The bridge could span 3times for about 400meters.

I drove quite a bit in Romania on holiday a few years ago. The massive motorway projects seem to make perfect sense, but what about the regular highways already there? Some are pretty busy, and even on quieter sections, quite a few need urgent attention and others need to be replaced altogether. For instance, the Pitesti-Brasov road was pretty awful in places, even though it was quite busy. Any plans or proposals on the horizon?

I think it was repaved recently.
