What puzzles me a bit is the high number of viaducts on this highway. This was probably discussed before and I have no idea about the terrain composition, but in Eastern France, a hilly area like Transylvania, they didn't erect pillars for every little hill they had to overpass. Take a look at the image below. I wonder if using a solution like this wouldn't have been more cost effective.

A4 autoroute, France Est:

I wonder what happens with such motorway like that in France during heavy floods as we get in Romania?? I am not saying this is an explanation, but just wondering, b/c being on pillars especially in the valleys will significantly reduce the risk that the motorway be submerged into water during floods.

Prima grinda de la Autostrada Transilvania e gata
CityNews.ro, autor: Anamaria Pascal, May 23, 2008


Prima grinda din cadrul sectiunii 2B (Campia Turzii-Gilau) din cadrul Autostrazii Transilvania a fost astazi instalata. Aceasta este o grinda pretensionata, de tip U, si a fost instalata pe viaductul de la km 29+709.
Acest tip de grinzi sunt fabricate la Turda si reprezinta o premiera in Romania. Fiecare grinda cantareste 165 de tone, avand o lungime de 37,1 metri. Pentru producerea unei singure grinde sunt necesare noua tone de fier, 60 de metri cubi de beton si 3,4 tone toroane (ancore metalice care sustin podul).
Pentru finalizarea structurii mai sunt de efectuat cateva etape.
Proiectul Autostrada Transilvania reprezinta o autostrada cu patru benzi, cu o lungime de 415 km, ce porneste din centrul Romaniei, la nord-vest de Brasov, ajungand la Oradea, la granita cu Ungaria. Lucrarile de constructie demarate in iunie 2004 continua pe segmentele de autostrada 2B Campia Turzii - Cluj Vest si 3C Suplacu de Barcau - Bors.

A4 autoroute, France Est:

It fully depends on the desired design speed... The TEM standards (that were fully transposed in the Romanian design normatives) usually reccomends a 120km/h design speed in which case a horizonatal curve radius should not be less than 650 metres and the maximum slope should not exceed 6%.

Anyway, I guess they mostly present such kind of pictures on their website for PR reasons... The road embankment would certainly be less spectacular.

You are most probably right, but I guess we'll never actually know until they finish the entire project which, to my mind, won't be any earlier than 7 years.

And one more thing: let's not forget that we are talking about a design-build project (at least for the sections currently under execution) and it's in the Contractor's best interest to choose the most expensive technical solution when providing the final design...

Interesting hint. Still, why so many viaducts and suspended sections?

At least the workers who work at the highway seem a bit more civilized, not like our classic darker-skinned and unreliable "friends"

A little racist there aren't we? I know what you mean by unreliable workers we see in Bucharest, but common, can we keep out the darker-skinned part out. If people keep discriminating like this, they are never gonna integrate in our society, I am trying to be helpful

Anyways, on topic, I really like the way things are looking, looks like a professional done project that you don't see everyday in Romania, I am very happy I just hope that the workers in Bucharest can have the same work ethic instead of trying to sell their work equipment illegally

In the above quote... i put the situation as nicely as i will ever be able to, so don't ask more from me regarding this issue. I know very few civilized ones, and i keep them out of that category, but the others...
I will not insist on this topic I don't want to get myself a ban.

Jaysont34 since when is speaking the truth considered to be racism ?? The fact still remains that our dark pigmented friends hate work. This is not about race, this is about they're way of life and mentality and if we keep allowing them to say they are discriminated then for sure that they will keep living the way they do now and never integrate. The only discrimination they get in Romania is a positive one, so lets leave the discrimination bit out.

Minister of Transportation: First 25 km from Transilvania motorway to be opened this year

Ludovic Orban: Primii 25 de kilometri ai Autostrazii Transilvania vor fi gata anul acesta



Ministrul Transporturilor, Ludovic Orban, a declarat, astazi, ca primii 25 de kilometri din Autostrada Transilvania urmeaza sa fie gata in acest an, adaugand ca exista intarzieri si ca Guvernul va aloca, la rectificarea bugetara de la sfarsitul lunii iunie, 200 de milioane de euro pentru Autostrada, potrivit Mediafax.

"La rectificarea bugetara de la sfarsitul lui iunie 2008 vor fi alocate de la buget 200 de milioane de euro pentru anul 2008. Sunt intarzieri in raport cu graficul lucrarilor la autostrada, ei (compania Bechtel) au incercat sa explice ca intarzierile au avut loc pentru ca nu a existat garantia finantarii. Dar nu au cheltuit ce le-am dat pana acum. Am vorbit si pentru anul viitor, cand vom aloca 500 de milioane de euro pentru doua tronsoane noi de autostrada", a afirmat Orban.

Ludovic Orban a adaugat ca principalul obiectiv al Ministerului in privinta Autostrazii este unirea tronsonului de la Cluj cu cel de la Suplacu de Barcau.

Directorul de comunicare al Companiei Nationale de Autostrazi si Drumuri Nationale (CNADN), stefan Szobotka, declarase, in 12 mai, ca pana in luna noiembrie a acestui an vor fi dati in folosinta primii 35 de kilometri ai Autostrazii Transilvania.

In doi ani, pe Autostrada Transilvania vor lucra de 2,5 ori mai multi angajati

Source: www.zf.ro

Quote:
Compania americana Bechtel, constructorul Autostrazii Transilvania, estimeaza ca in perioada de varf a lucrarilor, care va fi atinsa in 2010, numarul angajatilor va fi de 2,5 ori mai mare decat in prezent.

Pentru Bechtel lucreaza in prezent aproape 3.000 de angajati, din acestia 93% fiind romani. Reprezentantii companiei sustin ca personalul a ajuns la numarul optim si nu mai au nevoie de oameni in plus la momentul actual. "Estimam ca, pentru perioada de varf a constructiilor, care va fi atinsa in 2010, compania noastra va avea peste 8.000 de angajati", a declarat pentru ZF Transilvania Bogdan Sgarcitu, directorul de comunicare al Bechtel.

Cititi in ZIARUL FINANCIAR de maine ce lucrari se efectueaza in momentul de fata pe Autostrada Transilvania si care sunt problemele reprezentantilor Bechtel.
