Governmental decision: There won't be any (4) tunnels on the M6 highway Szekszárd – Bóly section due to budget cutbacks...

Out of the Ordinary Highway Stories

Rabbits run riot on Hungarian highway

BUDAPEST, April 16, 2007 (AFP) - Thousands of rabbits had Hungarian police and firefighters on the hop early Monday when they escaped on to a key motorway following an accident.

Police said nearly 5,000 rabbits were on the loose around the M1 highway linking the capital Budapest to the Austrian border after an accident involving the truck that was transporting them.

Traffic had to be diverted to a secondary road, a police spokeswoman said.

that news is quite old. I heard most rabbits weren't running around all time, but just sitting on the asphalt enjoying the sunshine.

Wild Boar Shuts Down Spanish Highway

MADRID, Spain - A wild boar trapped in the middle of a major highway halted traffic for about 15 minutes outside Barcelona on Thursday, police said.

"The animal was disoriented and did not know how to leave from where it was," said Sonia Gonzalez of the Catalonia Traffic Service.

Police were prepared to shoot the boar but it ran away.

The incident created a two-mile jam on a stretch of urban highway that is not far from a mountain range. Cows and ducks have previously wandered onto the road, Gonzalez said.

Does this mean that the highway will instead be re-engineered with a slightly realigned routing and deep cuts?
