Nice photos though.

It seems to me that the sign indicates that cars and buses to Zagreb should go left and that trucks going to Zagreb should go right.

That is correct. Only cars and busses are allowed to go forward to the new border crossing. Trucks have to go on M70 and then take the first exit so they are using the old border crossing which is fitted for their needs.

The yellow sign at the roadside some 100 meters further provides additional information for truck drivers. It is not allowed for them to go to the left (M7) but the right way (M70) must be used, and the first exit. They have to use another border station (the old one, actually) and then the same way as cars do directing to Zagreb. It is only a 1-2 kms of detour.

well, don't do that, that would be just silly... but unless you're in a truck you don't have to worry about that

I wonder how many cars/trucks jumped the queue at the M6 interchange using the collector/distributor lanes. I saw quite a few.

Someone here sugested this route. I think it's a good one to avoid M0-south traffic. Maybe you will try it when you come back to RO and tell us after that how was it.

I noticed this but it was too late. If I knew that I can take that route I would have done it

U/C M3 between Nyíregyháza and Main road 49 (33,8 km) is behind schedule by 11 months... New deadline is 2012 november. The section from Main road 49 till Vásárosnamény (11,9 km) will be tendered next month.

Unbelievable. Why do they set deadlines in Hungary anyway? Would be better if they just say "coming soon", or "construction will be done someday".

And I really hate it that the weather is being blamed always for everything. Its like a slogan for everything. Like its only possible to build roads on cloudless, sunshiny days...

I agree, but in this case it was common knowledge...

You speak Hungarian, don't you?

The reasons of the delay were already published in the constructor's Q1 magazine...

Okay, I may overlooked it. But that doesnt change my opinion that they should care more about sticking to the original deadlines...

Yes, I speak hungarian.

^ Do you know how strange is for me to see you complaining when you have such a great motorway network?
Because delaying & postponing are just two synonyms for Romanian Company for Motorways (CNADNR).

But you have to admit that things seem to evolve in the last period...
Otherwise, is there something already going on, in terms of motorway works, between Mako and Hu-Ro border on the M43?

Okay, I admit I may overreacted but its also true that I won't say a word when it'd be only 2-3 month delay, but thats nearly a year (okay that stretch of M3 is not that important anyway).

But take a look on M0 section 51-M5, originaly it was planned to inagurate it on 12/31/10. (or section M1-M7 where the construction hasnt even began)

M43: constructing of Mako-Hu/Ro border have been stopped last week because of money issues...

Yes, but still nearly the half of it is missing: M0 (M1-11), M2, M4, M10, M43, M86. But its a decent network now, I have to admit.

Don't belive it, the construction of M43 wasn't even started, only archeological explorations were started a year ago which have been stopped last week due to money issues.

About M0:
- the works are ongoing on the section between main road 51 and M5, but the works were stopped due to the constructor bankrupted last year...
- between M1 and Törökbálint IC the works didn't even started because that project was supposed to build by a private company that was doing a big developement next to the M0 but that company bankrupted as well...

Thank you for the details.
But the specific contract has been awarded, I suppose... ?!
