For a country that is in urgent need of any piece of infrastructure they can get, those govt. agencies are acting quite inadequately....

Well, from around 6PM they have open the section between Ilia I/C and Șoimuș (Deva) I/C without Comsa (main builder in lot 3 and Ilia I/C permission). There is a cerut unusual press release from Comsa about this situation mentioning the făcut that they will inform EU institutions.

Basically it's a kafkian situation...Below s that press release (n Romanian).

A bit of OCR and Google translate, reads approximately like that:

Quote:
The builder of the Lugoj-Deva Highway, lot 3 states that it is 100% prepared and does not pose any danger for circulation
e Inaccuracy CNAIR allegations that there would be impediments in receiving the Lot.
The Association assumes no responsibility for the opening of traffic in Ilia Node - being a unilateral decision of CNAIR - and without proper coordination with the Association.


14. August 2019

Against the accusations of the National Road Infrastructure Management Company, S.A (CNAIR), Association responsible for the design and construction of the Lugoj-Deva highway, lot 3 formed by S.C. TELOXIM WITH S.R.L., COMSA, S.A., ALDESA CONSTRUCCIONES S.A. and S.C. ARCADIS EUROMETUDES, categorically states that lot 3 of the Lugoj-Deva highway is perfectly adequate, he complies the technical and quality standards of a European motorway and is 100% ready for conducting traffic without any danger to users.

According to the Association, there are no technical reasons for CNAIR not to receive the project.
The association has completed all the works and confirms that there are no technical impediments either contract for its commissioning. The current finishes are off the body of the highway and are they can execute without obstructing traffic, which means that it does not prevent the reception of the work.
Also, the Association considers CNAIR's reckless way of acting on August 13 namely, to unilaterally open the traffic to the Ilia Node, in this case even the possibility exists a risk to the circulation of users. The association assumes no responsibility for this situation considering that the reception was carried out without proper coordination between the Parties.
The association wishes to emphasize that it has made great efforts to complete the works, taking in consideration not only the lack of payment of the works performed (and certificates for payment), but also the non-observance of to CNAIR of DAB (CAD) (Dispute Adjudication Board) decisions, derived from the claims of the Association from the beginning of the works, which are obligatory; and does not lend itself to one.

The project is also large and is financed with European funds. The Association will also inform the authorities of the Commission of the European Union that finances this Project about the current state of this Project, so that, if considered appropriate, they should apply necessary measures.

Summary of facts.

After the completion of the works, the Association requested the Engineer (HILL) - in accordance with the provisions contracts - Reception of the Project. To this end, the Engineer issued an address acknowledging that, Despite some quality defects that could be remedied, the work was in a situation of being received, setting the date of August 12 as the date for the completion of the Reception Procedure at Completion of Works with CNAIR.

On August 12 and 13, it was tried to carry out the Reception of the Work.

Despite the fact that every time there was a clear will and attitude to achieve the Reception In the works, at both meetings were presented reports of the Engineer with new elements that, in According to the Consultant / Engineer, he does not recommend the reception.

The Association further argues that there are no defects or problems that impede the Reception of the Work and, consequently, commissioning of the Lugoj-Deva Highway, lot 3; because if there are defects, they do not endanger the safety and stability of the work and, in any case, can be remedied after the Reception Works.

Following CNAIR's refusal to perform the Reception of the Work, despite the absence of technical reasons that prevents the commissioning of the entire work, CNAIR expressly requests the Association, to allow download of lot 4 through a section of the work provided in the Project executed by the Association (that is, Ilia Node).
This section for which CNAIR requests the reception is in the same technical conditions as the rest of the works; which makes CNAIR actions complete contradictory and motivated only by political interests, to the extent that, technically, they do not there are reasons to receive the reception for Node II and not for the entire Work.

Also, the Association has adopted all the necessary measures for conducting the traffic under conditions of safety; Therefore, it is completely possible to start up the entire section of the Motorway Lugoj-Deva, lot 3, even with some defects that can be remedied during the course, but because this which is possible The beneficiary should have cooperated with the Association.

On August 13, CNAIR decided unilaterally - at 18:00 - the opening of Ilia Node (700 m) to traffic without the Association's agreement and without prior notification. CNAIR employees appeared in the section mentioned to change the signaling and to prepare the Ilia Node for unloading traffic from the adjacent lot.

According to the Association, this situation is particularly serious, as a forced takeover would be carried out (and abusive) of the section mentioned by CNAIR, without following the official procedure whose purpose is that of guaranteeing the safety of the works to be put into operation.

The representatives of the Associations from the yard notified the CNAIR representatives about the seriousness of the actions being in the last instance you need to notify the Police. Before the arrival of the police, the representatives CNAIR removed all equipment; But there was a video footage demonstrating the intervention to CNAIR

Today, CNAIR representatives intervened again at the Ilia Node and it has already been put into operation, without the Association's agreement. In this regard, the Association does not assume any responsibility for putting in function being a one-sided decision of the CNAIR, the latter being the only one responsible for traffic safety in the mentioned section.

In recent days, CNAIR has exerted a disproportionate and unjustified pressure on members Associations, setting up meetings without notice, carrying out actions that have no technical or contractual basis for the purpose of the Reception of the Work and neither did they offer feasible alternatives to allow this work properly executed and completed to be made available to citizens. Because of the situation stressful The Association representative needed emergency medical care and was taken with
Ambulance at the nearest hospital in Ilia around 7 pm.

It should be mentioned that until now, CNAIR has a debt of 99.216 million lei towards the Association, derived mainly from claims estimated by DAB (currently in arbitration) and certified works and approved by the Engineer and not authorized by CNAIR.
Despite the difficult situation of the last days, the Association has always been open to solving each issue raised by CNAIR, all to enable the Reception of the Work to be carried out in the conditions provided by law. The association will continue to strive to end this conflict in the next days.

COMSA Corporacion communication

I think this is really a new low, and I would have not believed that something like this could happen in the EU...

The Hill, with traffic:



And there is also other problematic issues in Romania,like A10 Lot 1, where works more or less came to a halt (supposedly claims of >60 million lei unpaid invoices); well, so does the traffic from Sebes to Alba Iulia, can be seen nicely from 8:20 on)

(sources: ziarul unirea)

And not to forget, the transport minister still said this week that they will open that lot (w/o the straps in the Sebes node) 2019.. I guess they will build a huge slope to allow flying cars to jump over the railway near Alba Iulia North, at around 24:40; Alba Ilia South (15:40) isn't progressing, as they found an illegal dump, that of course wasn't in the feasibility study, and thus a section of the connecting road isn't being built at the moment. Not sure what is the solution, or if anyone is working on a solution..)

Sorry, I'm a little bit confused about responsibilities.

CNAIR is the road authority which operates the motorway.
COMSA is the construction company who has built lot 3.
But what's API?

Is it an authority? With full-time employees? They must agree that a new road is ready to be opened? Is police also involved?

Or are API members just hobbyist who love talking about road infrastructure but without any official responsibility?

Hobbists, like you on SSC, who became active campaigners for infrastructure provision in Romania.

Only lot 4 is (officially but illegally?) opened.

@sponge_bob: But API must agree that a new road can be officially opened?

Lot 4 seemingly is legally opened but only after Lot 3 was ILLEGALLY opened as there was no western exit on Lot 4 at the end of bat hill.

API entirely agree the opening of Lot 3 was illegal AFAIK. API are like a bunch of hobbyists in this forum who then decided to do something in their own country. It appears that they are now the 'go to' experts on road policy in Romania, not the state itself.

Is Le Clerk the presidente of API .........the way he goes on?

API is simply an association, like a "Verein"; their website is http://www.proinfrastructura.ro/

Some of their members become actually politically involved, in the technocrat government that Romania had for maybe 1 year, after Victor Ponta resigned after the fire in the nightclub that was operating w/o a license (see e.g. from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor...nd_resignation), and also afterwards.

API is nothing official in the whole process, but to my perception, they fulfil the role a proper journalist would do - they monitor projects by publishing video & foto reports, they do press releases, they were fighting a couple of lawsuits against CNAIR for receiving some documentation on projects that they wanted to keep hidden, etc.. And some of the local press ask them for statements, those that realise that the CNAIR or ministry press releases are simply crap.

I think LeClerk might have been one of the reasons why the main people that founded the community moved away from SSC, to their own platform :-)

--

Lot 4 has had the reception (supposedly with some things to fix, even though the builder initially insisted on having nothing to fix; but there are clearly some minor works left), but to be able to use it, CNAIR forcefully removed the barriers from lot 3 to give way through the node that is adjacent to lot 4. This is what people say is illegal, at least it was not officially received..

CEO of API is Ionut, while former vice-president of API, now politically involved (hopefully the next Minister of Transport) is cutterd.

A3 Bors - Biharia (close to Oradea), to connect with the Hungarian M4:



This is a part that initially was supposed to be built by Bechtel, as the whole "Transilvania" Motorway, which was signed by direct attribution (w/o tender).

The transport minister said this week, when he re-iterated that 100km of motorway will be opened this year, that also this stretch is among them.. Well, miracles do happen sometimes

The average transport minister in Romania lasts 6 months or so....how long is he there now????

What the **** does this ranting of his mean (the logic not the google translate).

Quote:
The Minister of Transport has given assurances that requests have been made for European funds and he is convinced that "this time we will have real Romanians to help us in Brussels" .

"We have a request for European funds and I am convinced - and I must say this - that this time we will have true Romanians who will help us in Brussels and not some who will confuse us and confuse the highways, that this is very dangerous. when you get confused between highways, you don't know what you want to finance , " he added.

Minister CUC (translation=cuckoo), together with the entire PSD, will be history, starting Q4 2020. The bad part is that so many years have been (almost) lost for infrastructure. The good part is that the projects of the crossings over the Carpathians, which is the most difficult part, will be managed by real professionals.

Btw, is it still called A12 or is it now DX12?

Well actually yesterday they re-auctioned the lot 4 (the one closest to Pitesti), with exactly the same estimated value as the previous auction. Bids then were published, so it will be interesting to see what new values the companies will offer..

Google Translate from the press release:

Quote:
The design and execution of section 4 of the Expressway Craiova - Pitesti have been auctioned!

Wednesday, 21.08.2019, the participation notice for the award procedure of the contract was published in the electronic public procurement system (SICAP), with the object "DESIGN AND EXECUTION" Drum Expres Craiova - Pitești "Section 4".

Section 4 with a length of approximately 31 km, it will be built between the administrative limit between Olt and Argeș counties and the intersection with the 1 Bucharest - Pitești highway and will transit the territories of Lunca Corbului, Albota, Costești, Bradu, Suseni and Oarja counties. The estimated value of the contract is 909,669. 122 lei without VAT.

The duration of the contract is 96 months and includes: 12 months the design period, 24 months the works execution period and 60 months the warranty period. The warranty period of the works can be increased up to 120 months, depending on the offer of the economic operator who will be designated the winner.

The deadline for submission of tenders was set for October 24, 2019.
http://www.cnadnr.ro/en/comunicare/c...-execu%C8%9Bia -tronsonului 4-of-way


Lot 3 is still not re-tendered, and for the other two lots, large sections still have no permits.. Well, that happens when you cancel the update of the feasibility study, and bid on a decade-old study, where in the meantime commercial buildings have been built on the route

A few pictures from a contributor to peundemerg.ro, near Pielesti (https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=13/44.3241/23.9686)




But there is, besides the Potemkin village that was pretended to be works when the government wanted to boast some success, a nice article that illustrates the state of the Romanian road works is e.g. this: https://www.digi24.ro/stiri/economie...edibil-1173078


In summary, the state is approx like this, posted on a Romanian forum page:

Quote:
Section 1 [17.7 km] - Contract signed in December 2018, 12 months design + 24 months execution - TIRRENA SCAVI SpA (ITALY)

Section 2 [39.85 km] - Contract signed in December 2018, 12 months design + 24 months execution - SA&PE Construct SRL association - Spedition UMB SRL - Tehnostrade SRL - Consitrans SRL

Section 3 [63.5 km ] - Auction canceled in March 2019, without being relaunched until now

Section 4 [31.81 km] - Auction re-launched yesterday . Deadline for offers: October 24, 2019
