I mean, technically they can do it in that deadline, provided they have the money. I am talking about 3c section of TM completion.

It actually sounds Swiss. They are constructing the A9 over a period of 8 years, while it can technically be done in 4 or 5 years for sure. They just don't make enough money available for a fast completion. In flatter terrain, a motorway can be constructed in 2 - 2.5 years.

It's recomforting to hear the Swiss don't have enough money to build a motorway either.

After counting on this site the number of tunnels (= 20), for me it's not recomforting.
Anyway, maybe a part of it is already open, so finally the number of tunnels still under construction is smaller.

Not to mention the height of the motorway...

The Swiss A9 does indeed feature a number of longer tunnels, but no major altitude differences need to be clinched. It follows a wide valley.

But I don't think you can compare monetary issues of Switzerland with Romania. In Romania the problem is there is simply no money, in Switzerland the case is that they don't want to provide enough money, while there is enough available, but is spend otherwise. (fancy rail tunnels of 30 - 60 km)

A3 in between BUcharest and Ploiesti (60 km) may be delivered next year, taking the total km to be opened next year at about 115 km.

Romania Needs EUR100M To Finish Bucharest-Ploiesti Highway

Romania’s Transport Ministry needs EUR100 million to finish the last segment of a highway linking capital Bucharest to the nearby city of Ploiesti, which was supposed to be finished this year but was moved to end 2011.

"The Bucharest-Ploiesti was supposed to be finished this year, but we couldn't because of lack of funds. We'll assign the necessary money in the 2011 budget," state secretary Eusebiu Pistru said Thursday during the MEDIAFAX talks about Transport & Logistics seminar.

He added constructors are currently working at a slower pace because the ministry cannot afford to pay.

The ministry says 60% of the highway has been completed so far.

orange: existing
magenta: to be opened this year (30 km)

Romanian Road Authority To Introduce Electronic Toll System On Oct 1

Romania’s public road authority CNADNR will introduce the electronic road toll system on October 1 and drivers without proof of its payment will be charged compensation between EUR28 and EUR1,210, depending on the type of vehicle, and will be fined.

CNADNR will also introduce a road toll sticker valid for three months, according to a Transport Ministry press release on Thursday.

Already purchased stickers will remain valid for their duration.

Compensation for a missing or invalid sticker will amount to EUR28 for cars, EUR96 for cargo carriers weighing up to 3.5 tons, EUR320 tons for trucks weighing between 3.5 and 7.5 tons, EUR560 for trucks weighing between 7.5 and 12 tons, as well as for passenger carriers with more than 23 seats, EUR720 tons for trucks heavier than 12 tons, which have 3 axles, and EUR1,210 for 4-axled vehicles heavier than 12 tons. This money, equal to the price of a one-year road toll sticker, will go to the budget of CNADNR.

Fines will be between 250 and 500 lei (EUR1=RON4.2674) for cars, RON750-1200 for vehicles weighing up to 3.5 tons, and can reach RON4,500 for trucks heavier than 12 tons which have 4 axles.

The sticker can be bought from any CNADNR office, petrol stations MOL, Rompetrol, Petrom and OMV, Post offices, the National Union of Romanian Road Transporters, or from distributors Scalla, Speedy, Medina and Pasaj.

End-December 2009, CNADNR selected Romanian companies Novensys Corporation/UTI Systems to ensure the computerized system needed to issue, manage, monitor and control road toll stickers, for RON35.96 million, VAT not included.

Seems that compensations and fines will cumulate, if the car owner didn't pay the toll.

^ This is good news. But we must warn foreign users who read this thread that Romania and Bulgaria are the only EU members where is compulsory to buy a sticker for every type of national road, no matter if motorway or not, and for every type of car weight.

New bid for Comarnic – Brasov motorway expected next year

September 30, 2010 at 4:14 pm

The Romanian Government will re-organize a bid for the concession of the Comarnic – Brasov motorway segment in 2011, after the contract that was supposed to be signed with the Vinci – Aktor consortium was canceled. The Transport Ministry will change the documentation in order to avoid the issues it faced the first time, said Eusebiu Pistru, state secretary with the ministry.

Vinci and Aktor had won the bid to design, finance and built the Comarnic – Brasov motorway, but gave up on the contract. Local media has pointed out the consortium had not been able to raise the required financing, as well as other technical issues related to the project.

The Comarnic – Brasov motorway segment, some 55 kilometers, should have been concessioned to the consortium over 30 years, during which Romanian drivers were to pay a road tax. After 30 years, the Romanian state could have either started another concession contract, or managed the motorway by itself.

The Romanian Road Company will tender in November all the non-contracted A1 sections (except for Sibiu-Pitesti), in blue in map below:

I know that Deva - Orastie might be already awarded, but I would mark it as u/c AFTER we see some man working on that field.

We are discussing Deva-Orastie (which is awarded), and not Sibiu-Orastie (which is yet to be awarded in November).

Posting that map 2-3 times/page won't speed up the construction of motorways in Romania.

And I completely agree with bogdymol. I would love to see some legal documents about the winner of the tender, then some guys scratching in the dirt, and only then that stretch can be noted as u/c.

My mistake. I wanted to say Deva - Orastie.

Anyway, I would say that Deva - Orastie is u/c after we will see the first workers there.

I am trying to make these news more "readable" for the foreign people who don't know cities in Romania.

With dark blue I marked "awarded and U/C". This stretch will become U/C at the beginning of next year.
