Once again: Kosovo misses in this map and i'm not talking about an political issue! Kosovo will get blue motorsigns and not green ones like Serbia has.

Probably 95% of the maps on the internet do not show Kosovo, so please don't bring this up every time you see a map without Kosovo. Hell, some maps even feature Yugoslavia or Czechoslovakia...

Funny thing about Belgium: signage on regular roads giving directions to freeways are green, but the freeway signage itself is regular blue. I kinda get the idea there were plans at some point to implement green signage for freeways in Belgium.

Not sure whether Belgium ever intended to switch. It can be argued that, on non-motorways, it is convenient to easily identify the route to the motorway. Hence the use of a colour like green (in a nation where signs are otherwise blue) serves the purpose to highlight a feature that is considered important. On the motorway itself, it was considered that there was no particular need to highlight anything, hence the use of uniform blue.

On this point, the Belgian signage is quite close to the German signage. On non-motorways, an outstanding colour is used to refer to motorways. On the motorway, the exit signage is blue - whether the intersecting road is a motorway or not.

I really like that. It's always easy to get on the right motorway in Germany (but also France), while in the Netherlands, you don't see the motorway symbol unless you're like 5 km from the motorway, sometimes not until you get to the last intersection before the motorway.

I don´t think that Kosovo will get blue signs because there are already the blue signs for the expressways( Prishtinë-Lipjan). But let´s see.

It should be noted there're still a few old green signs left on Hungarian motorways.

Given the fact there are also motorway signs, I think this pic was taken on a non-motorway status road.

^ Lol, it's as good as it can get, 6-lane M1+M7 section. Those blue motorway icons were the same as they're in CZ and SK.

There are also green signs on M5 between Budapest and Kiskunfelegyhaza. But I think they are slowly being replaced.

Actually that sign posted by Qtya and then Verso is already replaced with this one:


There are still some green signs on M5 around Kecskemét and on the old, southern section of M0. The blue signs were introduced in 2002 on the reconstructed M7 first. Before that all signs were green on all road types.

You are right, the green one is located just before the motorways split (or rather 500m before as you can see one more sign in the distance, in the curve, where the motorways actually split), and the one by me is 1km before. But the green one is already gone, next time I go there I'll take a photo

So no worry Chris, the sound wall is not gone
