They are supposed to be written vertically. I think in printing it is tileted a bit right so that you can tell the difference between an ö and an ő without a microscope.

Today I made a trip on the newly opened M43 motorway between Mako and Szeged. I have recorded a video on the road, but it's not yet procesed and uploaded to youtube. Untill I will be able to post my video I will show you some pictures:

After entering Hungary @Nagylak:



Roundabout to Mako - bypass before entering Mako:



On Mako bypass:







End of Mako bypass, turning right towards Hódmezővásárhely (very looooooooong name) & M43:


Note that Mako bypass will eventualy be continued towards Kiszombor.



Approaching M43 interchange:



Entering the newly opened M43 at Mako:



On M43:

A rest area still u/c:



Emergency phone:



Overpass:



Maroslele exit:



At this still unsigned interchange M43 was wide enough for 3 lanes:





Approaching Móra Ferenc bridge:

This part of M43 acts like a northern bypass of Szeged:









The old M43 segment was starting from this interchange with old road no. 5:



Old M43:





My destination was Szeged, but I wanted to drive on entire M43 to record it on camera, so I went south on M5 towards the Serbian border and I have exited at Szeged nyugat exit on M5:



M5 towards Budapest:

The main streets in Szeged on which the trucks were going before the opening of this M43 motorway section were almost empty (not as I remebered them - full of trucks and with long queues at each traffic light):

Now the trip back home.

I entered M43 from the old interchange that was used by transit traffic before opening of this new section:







Entering M43. Direction: Arad!





On M43:



Doesn't Arad look good on motorway signs?









Arad 91 km.

Is it usual to use roundabout intersections design in Hungary? I mean, it's very unusual in highways for me. And I saw some of these in some pictures here. Can someone tell me?

ps.: Beautiful roads! I really liked it and perhaps I can see it "in loco" someday.

Great, great pictures! Thank you, bogdymol, waiting for the video! And thank you, neighbours, for bringing Budapest few kilometres closer.

All the interchanges pictured above are similar with Dumbbell Interchange type:

Seriously? I really thought oblique was correct. You have some unique letters. But it's interesting that you can see vertical accents only on Hungarian road signs, nowhere else. Is it even possible to write them vertically on keyboard/computer?

I almost forgot to mention what might be the most important thing: google maps shows me that between this two points (roundabout road 43/Mako bypass -> old M43/M5 interchange) I would have made 52 minutes on the old road. I believe that it would be fair on a normal day, but I have made more during some busy days. But today, on newly opened M43 I have made exactly 23 minutes driving with a speed of aprox. 80 km/h on Mako bypass and 120-130 km/h on M43.

Thanks, but I meant about this kind of roundabouds, bogdymol. And I realized you have even signs prepared to that!

You think the signs are weird? These are common all over Europe.

Lots of roundabouts were built on the main road network in the last 10-15 years. The reason is very simple: roundabouts are much more safe than crossings (all of vehicles have to slow down).

Nice photos! Do you often come to Szeged? The downtown is beautiful, especially in springtime. The transit roads are ravaged by heavy traffic (both pavements and buildings), waiting for revitalisation.

Well, not weird... but different. I'm not used to see like these.
