It is used, but unfortunately Romanian railway network isn't doing very well these days. Plus, the railway system inside the capital city has been destroyed or neglected and the government & the City Hall don't have a proper long term vision to rebuild it. Today, almost all commuter traffic is by road, therefore all the roads entering the city are congested.

Thank you Skynick for the videos.
And I hope they will forbid once for all those gypsy caravans on public roads :

The railway is normally used, but at this moment all the train traffic is diverted while the overpasses are being built.

It was announced this morning:

M49 (28 kms, half profile expressway) from the M3 interchange towards Satu Mare, until the Romanian border will be built with the deadline of 31. December 2003. Try to keep up the pace guys.

Was the construction company selected or it's just an intention? This half profile expressway means actually 2x1 road with grade separated intersections, correct?

If M49 will be just 29 km long it can't reach the romanian border. It's to short. I think you wanted to say that the deadline is 2013, not 2003.

That's true. From near Vaja, where M3 will pass, there are more than 40km to the romanian border, as the crow flies.

You are right my post was totally irrelevant. Plans to be completed, by the end of the year, so tender could be announced next spring. Yes, only 28 kms, and it wont reach the border, cas' the last section depends very much where the border crossing will be. This is why I wrote, keep the pace. It's not the same whether the future bypass of Satu Mare will be south or north of the city. For Hungary it would be lot cheaper if we could negotiate a border crossing in the middle of the Vetis(Ro)-Csenger(Hu)-Csengerújfalu(Hu) triangle.

And also yes, end of 2013... My bad, I was in a rush...

Exactly. Basically a motorway, without the second pair of road.

The Transport Min held a conference today and surprised us with the fact that there will be 40 km of motorway completed this year instead of 30, as follows:

12 km of Transilvania Motorway (Turda-Campia Turzii)
17,5 km of A1 (Sibiu By-Pass)
12 km of A3 (Ploiesti-Barcanesti)

AND he said that 21 km of 2x2 Bucharest Ring (kinda expressway) will also be finished this year.

The only problem is that the 12 km of A3 (near Ploiesti) won't be ready for traffic (it doesn't link anything). It's just a finished portion of the motorway.

Strabag was announced today winner of the tender procedure for the Orastie-Deva section of A1. The announcement has been delayed by protracted litigation caused by the other bidders.

Interesting is that the estimated price (back in 2007) was EUR 350 million, while Strabag won with a bid of EUR 170 million.

Some data about the section:

Lenght: 33 km
Duration of execution: 2 years (2012)

I know. It's still progress. Next year there are chances they complete the whole 60 km section of A3 in between Bucharest and Ploiesti.

Yeah, I know. Next year has some reaaaaal potential in finished km of motorway. Arad-Timisoara, Cernavoda-Constanta... maybe Bucharest-Ploiesti and a few km around Cluj (maybe Gilau-Nadasel).

We'll see.

The Deva-Orastie news MADE MY DAY. godspeed

Confirmed!

But they still have to tender some more sections of A1 this year.

Correction, not "some", but ALL the sections from Nadlac to Sibiu.

We still have:
1. Nadlac-Arad
2. Timisoara-Lugoj
3. Lugoj-Deva
4. Deva-Orastie - DONE
5. Orastie-Sibiu

Sibiu-Curtea de Arges-Pitesti will be tendered next year. We'll see.
