Abstract: Road transport is the most important mode of transportation in the EU, followed by sea and rail. Therefore, the road infrastructure network can be considered the backbone or the primary enabler of trade and mobility in an EU country. This year we celebrate 100 years since the creation of Great Romania, a country in which the cities, towns, villages, and its citizens are still not adequately connected by a modern network or motorways and roads as a symbol of unity. As Ionel I.C. Brătianu used to say ”the roads make a country”. Our paper aims at portraying the state of play in road infrastructure in Romania, as compared to some relevant countries from the Soviet bloc (Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland). We based our research on the statistics provided by Eurostat, the OECD, and on the positions of the primary stakeholders.
