Hm, Google Maps says almost 50 km.

ok, from M3xM31 interchange its about 45 km to M7 via Andrássy út -> Károly krt -> Rákoczy út -> Hegyalja út. but, I admit that maybe youre better off with taking M0 after widening has finished in the south, when its rush hour in Budapest...you can spend hours in traffic jams in the inner city.

anyway, a city motorway similar to A23 in Vienna would be nice also in Budapest, like Hungaria krt without traffic lights and crossovers...

outside rush hour drive through, especially if you want to see downtown budapest

where M3 terminates, make sure you are in the OUTSIDE lane
that will take you through Varosliget, Heroes square, Andrassy avenue, Chain Bridge, Tunnel then just turn left onto Alkotas street:

it seems quite easy until Szerémi út, are there any signs indicating where to turn right to Galvani ut?

Yes, very big signs, indicating M1, M7. However, be careful! There are two signs, the first one had a "200 m" secondary sign, but this one has been missing for several years so people that do not know that road may get wrong and turn right after the first sign.

going on "budai alsó rakpart" is most probably the best route to do some sightseeing while driving from M3 to M7/M1...

Yes, but the city is congested all through the day, that's why I prefer Hungária körút - Rákóczi híd.

Hi

I am traveling across Hungary this summer.

When will Slovak/HU border- Hegyeshalom highway section (full profile 2x2) be finished or commenced ??

After the information that M0 bypass is upgrading, is it still worth to take the M0 from M1 to M5 or should one take the road intro Budapest ??

Phase 3 of the M0 upgrade doesn't give so much sense. Why are they building that section also ??

M15 will still be half profile this summer. But it is just a short section.

From M1 to M5 take the M0 no matter what. (Unless there is some extreme situation.) It is at least 2x2 all the way, albiet quite narrow lanes.

in case you mean the section between road 51 and M5, thats not an upgrade but a whole new motorway under construction. when finished one day, it will make the detour via M5 between old M0 and new M0 unnecessary.

the other parts are indeed upgrades, but needed as hell.

yes i mean the section between 51 and M5.. On the picture last page, it says that this section will be finished in early summer 2013.

One still have to take M0 from M1 in order to take M5. Please correct me if i am wrong.

It's waste of money to build such a section. it will spend you 5 minutes. lol

Look at this link, here you can see that Google has already made the new highway visible: http://goo.gl/maps/7jW1

Absolutely disagree. Traffic on M0 collapses 8-10 times a week because of accidents and/or breakdown vehicles.

there is way too much traffic on M5 between old and new M0 (with a sloppy interchange connecting old M0 and M5). so it clearly justifies a 2x3 motorway to connect the "two" M0s.
if you would upgrade the existing old part of M0 between 51 and M5 you'd still have to channel a traffic of over 100.000 vehicles a day via M5 towards new M0 and Serbia/southern Romania. M5 would be a serious bottleneck in that case in my opinion...

Its not a waste of money, now one section of M0 uses M5 instead of crossing it. I know it's not a big difference if you go to M5 but if you continue on M0 it sucks, as that part of M5 carries M0's through traffic as well
Regarding your original question, the fact is you can't predict which way is better because if there's no jam on M0 then thats faster, but it can be totally ok through the city too, it's 2x2 all the way and Budapest traffic is not as bad as people describe it all the time imo

The difference between the old and the new M0 will be about 4 km. Out of 25 km between M5 and M1 (the route I always use), is 16% less! So it's a BIG difference for the transit traffic, for which the M0 is intended.

By the way, I always take M0 between M5 and M1 and back. Mostly at midday M5 => M1 and in the late afternoon or evening from M1 to M5. Never had any traffic problems. The transit takes me about 15-25'. Of course, the speed is way less then on the regular motorways (M1,M5), but still fluent. And I did that a lot of times that I lost count of. Maybe I was lucky
