Any news on Hungary's newest E road, E579? Does it appear on signs yet so that motorists can follow it until it vanishes near the Ukraine border?

E 579: Görbeháza - Nyíregyháza - Vásárosnamény - Beregdaróc

Construction of a new section (45,7 Km) on M3 ( Nyíregyháza-Vásárosnamény ) will start "shortly".

Orbán, the Hungarian Lukashenko has not banned all the freeway developments after all, he must have found a way to secure his cut, as something is going on M0, albeit at a snail's pace, but it is something. Way overpriced of course, but at least the deadly silence of the past 1.5 years is ruffled by some feeble waves.

isnt Nyiregyháza-Vaja section already under construction? I thought deadline has postponed to end of 2012 but its being built since end of 2010.

Motorways in Hungary are impressive. I had a chance to drive from Poland to Hajduszoboszlo this past summer and have to say that I was amazed by the highway infrastructure. I hope that Poland will soon have a vast motorway network like our brothers, the Hungarians have. Good job guys

You are right, the Hungarian freeway network went through a spectacular growing period. Between 2002-2010 its total leght doubled, becoming one of the most impressive in the region. The problem is that its development has come to a complete standstill with the new government, and with the arrival of this pocket dictator (Lukashenko-) Orbán, who was also responsible for the waisted 4 years during his first reign (1998-2002), and who is forcing the very same frog down his subjects' throats now that he lied himself into power again. And he does make sure that nothig gets built in his unfortunate land without his taking his cut. Anyways, the fact that there is at least something under construction in Hungary is nice.

This is a video of how the Hungarian network developed.

This is not quite right. The development was divided into two phases. Phase one between Nyíregyháza and Main road 49 (Vája) was awarded to Colas last summer and after a half year delay, the construction begun in March. Nevertheless, this development raises some questions... Last summer the contract was signed just days (3-4) before the management of NIF was sacked by the new government... And that time the financing of this project wasn't even finalized by the EU, yet... Brussels gave the go-ahead to this project on the 3rd of October 2011! (Source: http://www.nfu.hu/content/8428) So my question is, why the rush? Why was this development so important to sign the contract rapidly, without financial background?

A quote from Colas's official magazine (May):

Quote:
MOTORWAY M3 CONSTRU CTION KICKS OFF

On 29 June 2010, construction works
on the section of motorway M3 between
Nyíregyháza and road no. 49 were launched. The
consortium known as C-S-K-K 2009 is headed by
Colas-Hungária Zrt., while engineering duties are
fulfilled by the Főber-Oviber consortium.
This phase of the M3 will become the first
motorway in Eastern Hungary to approach the
country’s borders, thus potentially becoming one
of Central Europe’s most significant corridors
towards Eastern Europe.
Similarly to the M0 site office in Szigetszentmiklós,
container headquarters were set up in Nagykálló,
some five km from the starting interchange. For
the sake of simplicity, the consortium merged
into a project company and split up the design
sections between members, from which Colas-
Hungária was assigned the first and the third one,
i.e. the first two and the middle nine kilometres.
Deforestation, weed control, and munitions-sweep
works were completed on the aforementioned
areas back in 2010. In January 2011, the first set
of test piles was completed for bridgeworks at
the interchange with road no. 403. The majority
of haulage roads have also been established,
with gravel supplied by the Tarcal quarry of
Colas-Északkő. Finally, we were able to commence
mass-quantity earthworks on design section I at
the end of February. Despite the low-lying terrain
interspersed with watercourses and hardened by
sections requiring soil replacement, earthworks
emerged from the ground level on the entire site
by mid-April. Our SAE MB500 CKt mixing plant,
producing cement-bound road base, was installed
south of Ófehértó, just outside a borrow pit. After
establishing the water supply from a bored well,
the plant is to reach an operational status by the
middle of May. Dismantling of the Benninghoven
TBA 4000 U C asphalt-mixing plant – that supported
construction of the M6 from Szekszárd – has been
commenced. This machine is to be set up at the
depot of our consortium partner until the end of May.
Works have been launched on almost all
available segments of the site, and
archaeologists are expected to withdraw from
the future location of the carriageway by the end
of spring. From that point on, rapid advancement
will be witnessed by local residents, who
have been just as eager to see the motorway
construction up and running as we are.
Prove me wrong, but the construction seems to be going on, and AFAIK the second phase (Main road 49 (Vája) - Vásárosnamény) will be tendered this month... But I wouldn't bet on it...

Yes, that's true.
In my opinion, M6/M60 (Budapest-Bóly-Pécs) is the best motorway they currently have. It's far better than most of the austrian, german or swiss motorways I know.

Well it's not much of match comparing brand new, low-trafficked motorways with motorways that are decades old.

That's true, but even old Hungarian motorways are good (at least M7).

Due to a lack of maintenance funds, M1 starts to rot...

Thanks for the back up!

That "some construction site" is a 33 km long.
