National roads in Romania

DN5 (Romanian: Drumul Naţional 5) is an important national road in Romania which links Bucharest with the southern country border with Bulgaria by the Giurgiu Russe Friendship Bridge.[1]

DN5 has been designated as a priority express road, being upgraded between 2006 and 2009.[2] Between Bucharest and Giurgiu, for the most part, it is a non-grade separated dual carriageway with no emergency lane, with entrances and exits from adjacent roads using roundabouts. Some segments (such as the Adunaţii Copăceni bypass) are constructed to full motorway standard (dual carriageway, full grade-separation, wide median separation).[3]

It is one of the most transited roads in southern Romania, serving as the main connection between Romania's capital, Bulgaria and the rest of Southeast Europe.[4]
