Description:
The A2 motorway, nicknamed The Sun Motorway (Autostrada Soarelui in Romanian) is a partially built motorway in Romania which will, upon completion, link Bucharest to Constanţa, a city-port at the Black Sea shore. As of July 2011, 152 km of the motorway's total 204 km length are completed and fully operational from Bucharest to Cernavodă; also the Murfatlar - Constanța West (Interchange with A4) segment (14 km) is in use on one carriageway.

History

The construction of the A2 motorway between Bucharest and Constanţa began in the communist era during Nicolae Ceauşescu's regime. The first section Feteşti - Cernavodă (about 18 km) opened in 1987. This section includes the Cernavodă Bridge complex system of motorway and railway bridges and viaducts over the Danube and one of its branches at Cernavodă. The motorway bridge passes under the historical railway bridge built by Anghel Saligny in 1896, while the new railway in use today separates the motorway's roadways.

After the fall of the communism in 1989 the construction continued for a short period, but it was finally stopped in 1993 due to lack of financial resources. The construction continued after 1998 and the highway is to be completed by 2012.
