:siren:Romanian Motorways - Index and Statistics
There aren't much motorways in Romania, and the road network is one of the least developed ones in the European union. However things are going to change in the future. The largest road construction project is in Romania, the A1 from the Hungarian border to the existing A1 near Piteşti, to be completed by 2014.
The A2 is in use between Bucureşti (Bucharest) and Cernavodă (means Black Water or something?) The section Cernavodă - Constanţa and the Constanţa bypass are to be completed by 2010.
The A3 is under construction since 2004, between Braşov and Oradea, the majority of the route, to be completed in 2013. The Bucureşti - Ploiesti section is to be completed by 2010 (i thought this consists of upgrading of the existing expressway/boulevard).
The A4 is to start in 2008 and goes from Târgu Mureş on the A3 in Central Romania to Iaşi (Romania's 2nd city) near the Moldovian border.
The A5 goes from Ploieşti on the A3 to Albiţa on the Moldovian border, and is only in planning stages, to be completed by 2016.
Drivers need a rovignetă (toll sticker) on the windshield, like Bulgaria.
As of 2007, 264km of motorways were in use. By 2016 that amount should have been increased to 2004km. Also, 53km of Expressways are in use today. That will be 83km in the future (expansion of the Bucharest - Giurgu road to the Bulgarian border near Ruse).
