Clear difference before and after reconstruction. Will they eventually do the whole road?

Indeed, just change the signs and repaint the white lines in the middle to yellow and that 'No. 66' road could be a county or local road here in northeast Wisconsin.



Anyways, for the smaller countries, I would say that coverage all roads should be welcome in their road threads (although I do think that there should be a German non-autobahn road thread, too!). I like seeing these places at the ground level!

In about the year 2400 Only a 3,5 km section was reconstructed. The plans are existing but very little money spent on non-motorway roads nowadays (never was).

By the way there are some other low class connection roads in Hungary with main road charasterictics. These I know:

6604 Pécs-Abaliget (rallye track, that's why)
4428 Orosháza-Battonya (future 451 main road)
3313 Tiszaújváros-M3 motorway (to connect the city)
7459 Szentgotthárd-main road 8 (also)

Today I drove towards a village (the only connecting road). My father said it was laid at least 50 years ago, he remembers it from his childhood.

Its bumpy, full of fixed potholes and new ones forming. Max speed is 60-70ish kph. For kms.

What kind of pillars (széljelző oszlop) are by the road on this picture? I've never seen them before.

Not much, since I've already documented and photographed almost all of Hungary's motorways and highways in the past...

On my way to Dunakeszi...





A little bit of M2...

Although new Hungarian motorways look awesome, it's nice to see some ordinary countryside roads too. Good job Atza


BTW why these in the middle of the road

We copied them from the austrians,they are meant to slow down the traffic. The first at a pedestrian crossing,the second when entering a settlement.

They are called a traffic island. They are meant to accentuate the urban limits, and to slow down traffic as a part of traffic calming. These are not too bad though, I've seen much worse in NL where trucks have to slow down to 30 - 40 km/h to pass through them.

Quality of our main road network sucks... Took a little trip again on M5-Main road 52-Main road 51-M8-M6-M0...

It again shocked me how poor our mainroad network's quality in the heart of the country is...

M5 ok... Mild traffic...







Main road 52...







Other roads are even worse...



Heading north on Main road 51...







I just love overtaking trucks on narrow roads...



Freight traffic is huge...









Entering M8...

No. But it is true we have main roads in much better condition... I wouldn't say that this is the average either...

Pics you have seen a thousand times... M8, Penetle-bridge, M6...

Part I.



















M8 just after the Pentele-(M8)-bridge...







Leaving (end of) M8...
