Can someone tell me if Transalpina is currently open please.
I'm hoping to ride it south to north next week & come back the Transfagarasan
Transalpina officially is closed for traffic between Ranca and Obarsia Lotrului because the rehabilitation works are not finshed yet. Between Ranca and Obarsia Lotrului the road goes 20 km up to 2000 m and it is dangerous to drive because the road has no railings, signs and no road signs.If the weather it is bad then the risk is even grater.
If a car accident happens will be your fault not the authorities, and probably the auto insurance will not compensate you or other car driver because you were on a road officially closed to motor traffic.
It is true that a lot of people are driving on Transalpina road from Novaci to Sibiu or Sebes, but they are doing this on their own risk.You can find the discution in english about this problem here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2&start=1130
Important: the site: http://www.transalpina.biz
