Why not built the A6 now?! Why not comes the EU with a great idea to have this corridor as a strategic investment objective for the coming period (also to overcome the pandemic) and put all the money it takes into it?! It is not such a big deal for the EU!
It is impossible to build A6 by 2030 even if started now.
So you gave yourself the answer why I wrote 2028-2035, Romania is itself not ready for the A6 right now, A1, A7, A8 are priorities for the next years.

Looking ahead, has any funding for a FS A6 been submitted for EU funding, or is this postponed for the next EU budget period?

In order for A6 to have a chance of being completed by 2035, it needs to be started now with a FS. The funding for the FS could clearly be secured from the EU , being a TEN T CORE route, but the problem is that the cost/benefit from the Romanian perspective is very poor. The construction cost was estimated at 6 b euros (double the cost of CoBra+PiSi combined!), and the funding is not clear from the EU (for which road investment is less important under the Green Deal), while Romania clearly does not have the funding and the economic reasons to invest in it.

So what needs now IMO is a clear committment from the EU for the entire cost of this motorway in the coming EU financial cycle, and the coming one (A6 will need 15 years for completion), without affecting the existing funding for Romania, because A6 is clearly in the interest of the EU and much less of Romania.

This was signed as well for FS+TD yesterday with INGENIERIA ESPECIALIZADA OBRA CIVIL E INDUSTRIAL S.A. as an expressway (60 km) but with the possibility of being upgraded either as a 2x3 expressway or a full profile motorway .

Now the Braila bridge has FS+TD contracted for 4 expressways (2 connecting it with the future A7 and 1 connecting it with Constanta), while for the 4th which is Braila-Galati expressway we are waiting for the results for the tender for works soon.

It is interesting the consideration of upgrade to a motorway - probably the CNAIR thinks this will attract a lot of regional traffic.

^^

We discussed that already a few pages before. They will probably be upgraded to at least expressways.

In the masterplan you quoted there are actually 5 new/modern connections proposed with Bulgaria, and most will be upgraded to expressways, as I mentioned above.

For example, the extension of A4 towards south will be an expressway, and has been contracted as such for FS+TD earlier this year for 22 km towards south, even though in the masterplan it is marked as modernised national road. I am expecting this to be extended all the way to the border with Bulgaria.



The same is for the road marked as national road from Craiova to Calafat/Vidin. I am expecting it to be upgraded to expressway, and that rather soon, as the Craiova-Pitesti expressway comes along with the other 2 remaining lots to be signed this year.

For Giurgiu, it was signed last year a dual carriage road with Porr which should ensure the connection between DN5 and the bridge, taking the traffic out of the city.

Well, rather very soon.

For example, this TR81 is already tendered as expressway (for half the lenght for now) - and precisely for the most problematic section around Agigea and Eforie and Lake Techirghiol. The rest is a very decent and good quality dual carriage all the way to Mangalia, where indeed a by-pass to the border would serve well.



Giurgiu by-pass has already been contracted as dual carriage with the view to continue it to A0 in the future, probably as at least an expressway. This was also the most problematic section, the rest of road to Bucharest being a very good quality dual-carriage.



I a sure the same will apply to Craiova-Calafat, as an extension of DX12.

^^ Most correct detail in these photos is the 100 km/h general limit for extraurban roads. Very few European countries grant it, most have 90, 80 or even less.

That sign is not entirely correct. 100 km/h speed limit on rural roads is only valid if that road is an E-road (European route). On all other roads the speed limit is 90/h.

It is like this since many years.
