I know that Chris, but foxmedia said highway toll in Hungary, and that is not correct, because you only have to pay motorway toll in Hungary. Only in Romania our politicians said that we have to pay a toll for highways.

Actually that is not true. The vignette system is pretty diverse, and the Romanian type is no different from other EU members systems. See here.



Besides, the road tax or the vignette is the only tax that goes directly to the National Road Company which needs money pretty badly. And even the motorway system in Romania is not developed yet, the national road system, especially the European and National roads are quite good and have seen a huge improvement from what they used to be 10 years ago, also because of a substantial increase of the funds allocated to infrastructure. If anything, the vignette needs better collection which will be achieved by the introduction of the electronic purchasing and screening system, which will ensure almost 100% compliance with the legal duty to purchase them.

No. Truckers have to pay for some main roads too.

In Bulgaria you have to pay a toll for every national road.

Yes, romanian and bulgarian systems are similar.

Hey guys,

Does anyone have information on the stopping of work on the Bors-Brasov motorway? Is this motorway on hold now or will it continue in short sections?

I was told that the Romanian government cannot fund it anymore.

Works will go on (hopefully) on Bors - Surpaclu de Barcau and Turda - Campia Turzii sections. Gilau - Turda section is open. Other sections aren't started yet and we don't know when (if?) they will start them.

I think bogdymol is correct. There is nothing now which could confirm that works will continue from Campia Turzii to Targu Mures or even more so, from Targu-Mures to Brasov, before they finish the Bors-Suplacu de Barcau section. There has been a heavy shift recently to almost entirely on A1, which means that AT is slightly a priority anymore. In any case, they should open this year the Turda-Campia Turzii section.

And of course, lack of money is the source of all evils, including for a possible discontinuation of works for AT, though there is some talk on a possible negotiation between the RO Government and Bechtel to sign a PPP for the remaining sections, so that Bechtel would get itself the money for the rest of the motorway, which is not that futuristic considering that Bechtel is a huge company, has a huge cash flow, and even now it is financing the works for the AT, the RO Gov being in delay with payments almost at all times due to budgetary issues. .

Works have started on one of the most spectacular alpine roads in Romania, very close to what Transfagarasan is:

Any pix from the u/c A3 motorway between Bors and Suplacu de Barcau?

Border crossing as well? What's the deadline for this section to be completed?

Not exactly, it already was a dirt road. AFAIK some parts of it had asphalt during the communist period, but it has deteriorated badly since then.

They are mostly working now on Turda-Campia Turzii near Cluj and less on the Suplacu de Barcau section. We are waiting for May updates so that we can check which are the sections they are working at. We'll post them as soon as they are available.

I think the deadline has long been passed as a result of insufficient funds allocation to this project by the Government. In any case, they plan to finish the Turda-Campia Turzii section this year (about 12 km) and then maybe next year they'll start completing some sections near the border but I am not sure. It all depends on the allocated money, and the Government has put now A3 in second gear, and passed A1, A2, and A4 in full gear in order to take full advantage of the EU funds.

Exactly. Now it will be built at full European standards, and will turn into a truly spectacular road!

@ Q'tya: Updates! They are working near Cluj and between Suplacu de Barcau and Bors! And apparently have been doing 4 times more work than last month considering the published volumes of work!
