April 2017 * National roads

04/06  It appears that works are finally ramping up on DN 18 between Moisei and Iacobeni, that connects Maramureș and Bucovina in the far north. Article reports that at least for the western half of this road we should have all works finalised this year with the exception of the wearing course.
04/11  According to statements of the minister of transport, it also appears that works will continue this year on modernising two north-south roads connecting to the above-mentioned sector of DN 18, namely DN 17C and DN 17D. The article further quotes the minister saying that the GTMP project Turda - Dej - Baia Mare - Halmeu expressway (as well as the branch Dej - Bistrița) will see preparation studies in 2018.
04/26  Retender of the modernisation of DN 6 Alexandria - Craiova, section 2 (km 132+435 - km 185+230) has been started today, submission of bids by June 14. This is in fact the second retender of this contract (first retender, unsuccessful, started in December 2013). The initial works contract had been signed in January 2011, and terminated in December 2012.
04/29  Dashcam video of DN 1H between Aleșd and Zalău, modernised with ERDF cofinancing under SOP-T 2007 - 2013.

April 2017 * Bypasses

04/10  Pics showing ongoing works on the construction of the second segment of the Tecuci bypass, connecting DN 24 (west) to DN 25 (south) - see map.
04/14  Forum member rightfully points out that there is no news from the Ministry of Transport / NCARI regarding the abandoned construction sites of the Suceava, Săcuinei and Carei bypasses.
04/19  Forum member reports (pics included) that almost nothing has changed on the Târgu Jiu bypass construction site (at least in three critical locations he surveyed) as compared to one year ago.
04/20  Forum member reports that works are ongoing at a satisfactory rate at the construction of the Târgu Mureș bypass.
04/23  The tender for the design and construction of the Timișoara bypass (from DN 6 east to DJ 591 southwest) was launched today. This will be a 25.6 km 2x1 road (see red alignment of map here) with mostly grade separated interchanges.
04/27  Forum member heavily criticises the government's decision to cancel the tender for the revision of the FS for the Timișoara bypass (that had been launched in January 2017, and which intended to study the preparation of a 2x2 design) and instead tender the D&B on a 2011 FS with 2x1 design. He argues that construction will not in any way finalise before 2020, and that by that time the bypass will already have a poor LOS, most likely seeing congestion from the first days of being open to traffic.
04/24  Works are ramping up on the construction of the Mihăilești bypass, a commune on DN 6 some 10 km southwest of Bucharest.
04/26  The much-needed widening of the Bucharest bypass in its eastern part, sector DN 2 (km 12+300) - A2 (km 23+750), was retendered today.
