Find below a review of relevant news for each Romanian motorway project published in the past three months:

I. A1 MOTORWAY (Bucharest - Nadlac)

Bucharest - Pitesti: The entire length is now open to traffic.

Pitesti - Sibiu: Good news for Sibiu - Pitesti: tenders were launched for sections 1 (Sibiu - Boita, 13 km) and 5 (Curtea de Arges - Pitesti, 30 km). Unfortunately, the contract for updating the feasibility study on sections 2, 3 and 4 was canceled. CNAIR has declared that this study may be carried out using its own resousrces. Sibiu ringroad is opened to traffic (17.2 km).

Sibiu - Orastie: Entire length opened to traffic as of the writing of this article.

Orastie - Deva: Entire length opened to traffic as of the writing of this article.

Deva - Lugoj: Works in progress for segment 3 (Ilia - Cosevita, 21 km) and 4 (Soimus - Ilia, 22 km); some issues were solved, while new ones have appeared. Official opening dates are September and December 2017, but 2018 is a more realistic deadline. Segment 1 and 15 km of segment 2 are open; the completion of segment 2 is dependent on several ecoducts for which the tender hasn't yet been launched (existing contract for segment 2 was partially canceled to allow for this tender).

Lugoj - Timisoara, Timisoara - Arad and Arad - Nadlac are all open.

II. A3 MOTORWAY (Bucharest - Bors)

Bucharest - Ploiesti: 55.5 km of this section are open to traffic. Work continues on the final 3.3 km of the remaining 6.5 km on this section. The opening date was supposed to be in 2017, but latest news indicates it will be pushed to sometime in 2018.

Ploiesti - Brasov: The contract for updating the feasibility study on Comarnic - Brasov was also canceled. Several months ago a contract was awarded for a short 6 km section between Rasnov and Cristian, but no additional news has appeared on this topic since then. No other relevant news and no other sections are under construction or open to traffic.

Targu Mures - Gilau: 52 km on this section are opened to traffic, the remaining 56.5 km of work is progressing on 4 out of 5 segments; two of these segments (about 15 km) could be opened by the end of the year.

Gilau - Bors: Gilau - Nadasel section is almost finished, and a contract was awarded for the missing bridge over Somes river; this section could be opened in Spring 2018. The contract for the Nadasel - Mihaiesti section was canceled, but a tender was launched for the Suplacu de Barcau - Bors section. No section opened to traffic on this segment.

III. A10 MOTORWAY (Sebes - Turda)

Works progressing nicely on all four segmentsThe completion of segments 3 and 4 are estimated to be in 2017 (section 4 had some landslide issues), while the completion of segment 1 and 2 should be in 2018.


The only segment open on A6: Lugoj - Calafat consists of 11 km opened in 2013; this route will not be extended via motorway. The only segment open on A11: Arad - Oradea consists of 3.5 km connecting A1 and DN7.
