1 million Moldovans have applied for Romanian citizenship. Most of them have to wait yet.

Some of them are also from Transnistria. There are people with three citizenships (Transnistrian, MD and RO).

If the transnistrians want the russian citizenship it's necessary to give up all other.

They can travel with Transnistrian passport only to UA, RU, BY ...

PS.For example, romanian citizenship is guaranteed certain to any moldovan born before 1941, if he ask it. However more than half have relatives in Romania.

Moldova seems to have many wide range highways capable of connverting these roads into full profile motorways... It would be a very wise move if the state could use this oppurtunity to tender construction companies where they would finance the conversion of these highways to motorways through a tolling systems to get their money back through a limited time lapse concession where for example the motorways would return back to state ownership after the companies had made their profits throughout the years. This would increase trade with links the neighbouring countries and would create a few jobs and boost local knowledge and development. This method is ideal for developing countries which cannot cope with the budget demand of high motorway costs.

I don't think toll roads are useful in a country where the net monthly salary is below € 200.

the costs of building a motorway in a small and flat country like Moldova is not that much so a toll of € 0.20 would be enough.

Moldova is not really flat, but mostly hilly. Also there isn't enough traffic even on the most important roads. So a tolled motorway doesn't make sense to me. It will be a ghost motorway as no one will use it. I don't think any investor will put its money in this.

Those who can afford buying a car, paying fuel, insurance and taxes can also afford a cheap toll. Those who are really poor don't drive anyway.

I also think that's why the new north-south motorway in Montenegro doesn't gain traction yet. Too little traffic to justify the investment. Even in wealthy countries like Spain or France there is massive shunpiking*

* shunpikers are people who avoid tolls.

Is there? I always thought this happened less in Italy due to the relatively poor alternate options. For example if I plot a route in Google Maps from Milano to Bologna it takes just under 2 hours by motorway but over 4.5 hours via non-toll roads.

I mean local routes, less than 50 - 70 km.

Italian tolls are relatively cheap, compared to France. From Turin to Brenner via Piacenza I pay 23 euros. Brenner to Naples is around 70 these days I think. I remember in 2004 it was less then 50.

Due to the lack of foreign investments, many of our roads are very poor and even dangerous. Currently there are talks with foreign investors which will decide their future.

Moldova (and it's infrastructure) are not important because of our poor geographic location.

I will keep this thread updated with my photos, news and projects.

I hope things will change soon and I hope the European Union will help us with something. I don't expect anything big though.

That makes sense because Moldova (but not Transnistria) was part of Romania before 1941, so Moldovans born before 1941 were born Romanian.

I think the EU will be more willing to fund developments in Moldova after Moldova and Transnistria settle their differences.

Well, it would be alot easier to find a cure for cancer.

It's a political matter, not a infrastructure-development one.

(sorry for poor english).

Thank you for your interest.

The road link which connects Soroca with Chisinau is USA-founded I guess. I've read that somewhere:
