This section of highway links Sibiu with Boita. The section includes the 650m-long by 30m-high Talmacel viaduct, which has been the most complex portion of the project. Another 400m viaduct will be developed in Talmaciu.
Construction of this stretch of highway includes the development building 27 smaller bridges, two services areas and nine intersections. The project is costing €124.7 million. When complete, the Sibiu-Pitesti highway will be over 122km-long.
