It's about repaving works on M3 where they recycled 60% of the old asphalt to lower the costs by 20%. Plus there is a experimental section where they constructed porous asphalt which reduces the noise by 8 dB and has a better water drainage ability.

Nice (I suppose) expressway. What mean those pictures next to Dunaújváros and Szekszárd at the sign?

M60 as it should be. It bundles traffic from central and northern Romania towards Slovenia, Italy and points west. It will also serve all cities in southern Hungary.

Looks to me like hanging tits. I think it shows that a women spa is following.

I'm afraid even your version would remain under 10.000 AADT. Waste of money if we build a full motorway there.

That's what the so-called Corridor XI (Timisoara-Belgrade-Bar-Barri) is thought for - to streamline traffic from western Romania to Italy. Serbs are already building some sections of it.

20.000 between cities and 30.000 near cities in 2025 is more likely if you look at similar areas of Europe or the United States.

That road will be M9, which will follow the Szeged-Szekszárd-Kaposvár-Nagykanizsa route (and then continue to the North on Zalaegerszeg-Szombathely-Sopron route), but the completion of this road is far in the future

It's a motorway with speed limit 130km/h but there are 110km/h speed limited sections usually before small radius curves. But they will put(or they had already put) these: additional sings below the speed limit sings, which means the speed limit is only operative in case of rain or wet surface.

Okay. I thought of "my M60" as the only east-west motorway south of M7. In that case, M60 would only be used for traffic bound for Pécs?

first of all, anyone who looks at traffic figures today can already show you ~500 kms that are more important (M4, M0 widening, M0 west, M0 north remaining, M10, M2, M85, M86, M43, many-many 2x2 main roads such as 21 and 51 and 8; etc) yet the current govt. is slowing down

second, i dont know how much of the secondary / tertiary road network (~20.000 kms) youve travelled, but almost all of it is about to rot away - granted, it could be redone in a few years but not in a country where motorists are overtaxed by between 1-2 bn eur

third, there are at least 8 bridges & tunnels on the Duna more important than the one needed in your map (Komarom, Esztergom, Vac, Aquincum, Metro 5, S-bahn, Gubacsi, Albertfalvi)


these are all needed right now, not 10-20 years into the future and should supersede the M60 (except from Pecs to Szentlorinc)

the M9 bridge has like ~3000 AADT, 7 years after its opening, there is no need for a bridge at Mohacs, not in the near future

Well, I never claimed an east-west motorway through southern Hungary should be build right away. You need to look further in the future than just the next 5 - 10 years.

M60 is planned to go Barcs at the Croatian border as an expressway to join the Croatian A13, this is for sure. Then a bridge at Mohács is planned for the very distant future, with a road towards Sombor in Serbia. I can't provide source for this, so don't take it too seriously.

We do it. I expect that motorways that are needed right now will be completed in about 2040 (adding that ways that were needed 10 years ago, too, will probably be completed until 2020). But your M60 has some chances as governments in Hungary (both this one and the previous one) like to build infrastructure to places where it is not needed any way or will be needed only in the far future :-/
