Specific Q - Romania - Danube

Hi all, really specific one to help with a trip later this year. I'm heading out towards romania again, and wanted some info re: the road along the danube (the section from Turnu-Severin to the west/north).

Last time I went the road was being relayed, was fantastic at one end, but I good couple of hours of extremely rough stuff that was getting relayed.

I'd love to camp there again, but does anybody know if the road is finished? The friend i'm going with this time would be pretty uncomfortable riding his shiny touring bike over really rough stuff.

Big thanks!

Thanks Simon, it's such a beautiful area, I would love to do it again. I might just have to tell my friend to come along and act suprised when we hit the gravel!

Seconded. I rode from Turnu-Severin to Timisoara in December.. main roads rather than riverside.. beautiful country.. beautiful villages.. poor country.. poor villages. The roads were hardly beautiful. In fact they were poor.. but fine for my Bonneville so no problems for you.

---I'm back. Now what?---
