The Pipera flyover, the most recent infrastructure improvement project in Bucharest, was inaugurated by Mayor Sorin Oprescu on Monday. It is the second biggest project after the Basarab flyover opening in the last years in the Capital, zf.ro notes. The new flyover will resolve much of the current Pipera traffic jam. Mayor Oprescu expects positive effects for the entire area on both sides of the Pipera road and the flyover, as it will improve traffic smoothness in the Petricani, Dimitrie Pompei, Barbu Vacarescu, Av. Serbanescu, Calea Floreasca and Fabrica de Glucoza roads. The estimation is that the Pipera flyover will be used by roughly 40,000 vehicles every day. However, unlike the Basarab flyover, this one has a very important shortcoming: you can only get on and off it at the ends, that is from the Pipera-Tunari road and at the ‘T’ junction with Nicolae Caramfil. Any motorist daring to drive onto the Barbu Vacarescu or Calea Floresca streets will be facing the same difficulties. Even if all areas, including the one under the flyover, received a fresh coat of asphalt, the tram line crossing that sector has not been upgraded, therefore the suspension system of vehicles crossing over it will have to suffer in time. Another issue of the new flyover as well as of the Pipera road is that you cannot make a left turn if you are driving on the right-hand side, because the two carriageways are separated by a green area. Where the green area ends, the double continuous line starts and goes past the railway crossing.
