Dunaújváros. it's a city about 50 km south from Budapest. bridge is a part of future motorway M8 which will run from Austrian border (Heiligenkreuz in Lafnitzal/Rábafüzes (a bordercrossing right east from Graz) - Veszprém - Sárbogard - Dunaújvŕos - Kecskemét - Szolnok)

Hungarians will know better, but i think there is some 10 km of motorway built around that bridge and there is also another section near Veszprém built (some 15 km) which will partially be reconstructed.

This bridge was built,because the M6 reached Dunaújváros,and the nearest road bridge is very far. The M8 is a very-very future plan. I think this is the only official part of it.

A couple of days ago I was back in our beloved Hungary, for the Balaton swimming contest.

Shots are from the M7 motorway, heading towards Budapest, from Balatonboglár:

As You can see there is no real improvment at the u/c northern M0 bridge... I meen on the western side of the Danube. Although the M0-Main road 11 junction is starting to get its shape... (Unfortunately no pics... )

But the development is on schedule. Hopefully will be completed by next August.



Last day of driving until the 23rd of november, 2007...

Cool pics! I also made some pics of the 5km M43 (north of Szeged) on my trip, but had to delete them because I didn't have enough space to take pics of the Alps.

The traffic from Budapest on the M5 towards Romania was chaotic to say the least: full of stupid truck drivers overtaking other trucks and thus creating small traffic jams behind them, crazy Bucharesters driving 200 km/h in order to save time in Hungary (because Romanian national roads are 1+1). The drivers in the West (Austria, Italy, etc) are much more disciplined than ours.

At this rate, the motorway will have to be extended to 2x3 very fast.

Also, what are the plans for the extension of the M43 towards Romania? Overtaking on road 43 has become practically impossible. I think it would have been much better to continue the M43 from Szeged towards Romania (because we joined the EU, and traffic increased substantially), than towards the Serbian border - even if that would only mean some 20 km. That would be all I need

By the end of 2008 - 870 km in use.
