I don't think so.

The first purpose of the signs is to serve the users of the road.
If more users of the road go or come from RO, then this is what it should be signed.
All other arguments like being corridor V (or other useless lines drawn by some idiot in Bruxelles), the fact the road eventually reaches China, the fact that other road also leads to RO are way less important.

The signs are there to serve the users of the road, we should never forget that.

Please NO!

Check out Belgium to see what kind of disaster such nationalistic signage is. How the hell are people supposed to know that Kolozsvár means Cluj-Napoca, Nagyvárad means Oradea and Nagybánya means Baia Mare?

I think the best solution is eg. Kolozsvár/Cluj-Napoca, Nagyvárad/Oradea and Nagybánya/Baia Mare.
We're in Hungary, so we should use the Hungarian name. But also we have to write the town names on their actual (Romanian, Slovakian, Slovanian, etc.) name.

No, multiple names only mess up the signs. People who are travelling abroad need to know the Romanian name anyway to continue their journey, so adding a Hungarian translation is useless...

Translations should only be done when there is a different script, such as Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew or Chinese or something.

Slovanian? I don't think there's any Slovenian place signed in Hungary that would hear differently in Hungarian (Ljubljana is the same). A long time ago I remember there was Murska Sobota signed in Rédics instead of Ljubljana today, but it actually said "Murska Subota" (that would be in Serbo-Croatian), and it didn't say "Muraszombat". I guess it would nowadays.

Exactly, it's probably better to be consistent with current signage, like Wien - Becs on M1.

And let's not forget that the Transylvania motorway will be Bucharest's first motorway connection with the rest of the EU, not corridor IV. I doubt that once it will be finished people will prefer to travel via 2-lane roads from Arad till Pitesti.

M1 Mosonmagyaróvár-Levél & M15 Levél-Rajka



Approaching junction 86/M1.


Turn to Budapest.


M1, Budapest direction.


We turn left.


Trucks and buses must have e-vignette.


What's this space for?


Joined M1. Distance sign.


Moson rest area after 1 km.




Wind power.








Approaching junction with M15.


We go for Poszony.


Motorway ends and a half profile expressway starts.


Will the other 2 lanes ever be finished?


Speed limit 90 km/h.


Right track.


Overpass.


This is what happens, if Slovakia is closed for trucks Saturday untill 20:00.


At H/SK border, everyone parks how he likes.


It would take a hour to get out of the border, so I stopped at Jarovce rest area and waited for 20:00. Slovak speed limit sign, btw.

Sections that work as bypasses are free. I assume its part of Mosonmagyaróvár bypass.

Because it's half-profile, and this short part of M1 is also transit for the Zagreb-Bratislava route.

I think that sign rather indicates the section of M1 between the last exist in Hungary and Austrian border is free.

No, that section isn't free of charge. It's the section of the M1 you use, if you go from Zagreb to Bratislava, so you don't need vignette for that short part of M1.

They should come east of Budapest, and see how things really should be done!

At the M3-M30 interchange, the ramps on the Budapest - Miscolc axis are both two laned.
It's the same at the M3-M35 interchange.

Btw, hope that M15 will be dualed soon, it is becoming a nuisance.
