Will they really continue M6 towards Osijek as M56? What's the reasoning behind that? I would keep it M6 to avoid an unnecessary succession of road numbers.

On slide no 4, the continuation appears to be M6...

Apparently the first idea was to number M6 the main trunk and the branch to Pécs, and M56 the branch to the border. Then this changed to M6 from Budapest to the border and to M60 for the branch to Pécs.

M56 was an old plan when M60 was M6 but later M56 became M6 and M6 became M60

I made a spreadsheet to analyze the density of our network (of 2x2 roads):

http://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0...N2M0OTNj&hl=hu


First I grabbed a list of all towns in Hungary. Note that the list does not include villages, even though a lot of them have thousands of inhabitants and are right next to the network.

Then I decided on a distance of 5 km. As you can see, currently ~45% of the population lives within 5 kms from the network, but eventually it will increase to over ~60%.

I realize this is very ad-hoc but you get the picture.

That other photo showing the funeral car being towed away during the funeral is even more shocking....

Great job, gramercy!
Of course, data must be taken with a bit of caution. For instance, even though the inhabitants in Bekescsaba technically are "within 5 kms from the network", in reality they only have access to the few km's of road 44 to Gyula (so in practice they wouldn't really be connected to the 2x2 network).

Say, I noticed M49 does not appear in your planned column. Has this been scraped off?

The kmpost says 7, yet the exit number is 8?

Perhaps Hungary rounds up to an integer number of km instead of to the nearest integer. That's how Exit 0 can be avoided.

When I tried to figure out the rounding on the new M6 to figure out the exit numbers from the km tick marks in the online plans, it wasn't clear which rounding rule was used. Plus there's the question of which part of the interchange the distance from the zero point is based on. Center of an over-/underpass? The closest or farthest ramp end to the zero point?

Probably the IC get number by the higher kmpost (which is after the IC).
Because the IC is in the 8th km (0-1 km -> 1st, 7-8 -> 8th).
