That's the same thing at the road 43 (Hungary) / main road 7 (Romania). The Hungarian part looks a little bit old and narrow, but the Romanian one is much better (wider and with smoother asphalt). Luckly you have to drive just ~20 km on Hungarian standard roads to reach the motorway.

Hungary 43:



Romania 7:

"Good roads towards the reach west. Bad roads towards the "poor" guys in the East". Simple logic. Not politically correct, yet simple. Romania has/had the same logic towards Ukraine and Moldova.

I see you followed my advise and avoided using M0 :-)

However, I think it is not difficult to follow the route through Budapest. You have to check signs to Rákóczi híd, and then M5. And you have to turn only twice.

well, the A3 towards sopron is in pretty good condition -unfortunately there is a f*cking roundabout on the end of it causing massive jams every day which makes the fast reaching of sopron on a motorway pretty pointless. but okay, this motorway is not for hungarians in the first place.

A4: i think its not only in bad condition but also narrow for a 2x2 road, they definately should widen it to 2x3 (at least until A6 interchange), same goes for whole M1.

Yes, thanks!
We didn't loose much time, it was not crowded and also saw a piece of the beautiful city. Also the flag of Budapest which has the same colors as the one of Romania (I thought they changed it).

I knew the same story.
But still I saw the old one displayed .
My girlfriend didn't know and said "Look, the Romanian flag!". Then I explained her the story. Anyway, the colors were horizontal for Budapest and vertical for RO.

From the monthly newsletter of Colas Hungary:

Quote:
Colas Hungária was awarded a number
of jobs in the spring tendering season, including
a public road overpass to be built above
a railway line in Mezőberény, a river dam
reconstruction project in Szentgotthárd, and
construction of new asphalt pavement on a
section of motorway M0 between motorway M1
and motorway M6.

An “A”-load category, double-span, straightline
bridge with a pre-cast, stressed reinforced
concrete structure is to be constructed in the
city of Mezőberény to replace a conventional
level crossing. The configuration of affected
roads is 2×1 lanes. During the construction
works, some 80,000 m3 of soil, 4,500 m3 of
Ckt road base material, and 7,000 tonnes
of asphalt are to be laid. Altogether 38
pieces of 90-cm-high, pre-cast, stressed
reinforced concrete “I” support girders are to
be transported to the site – partially by railway,
partially by road. To guarantee success, Colas
Hungária’s Major Projects Division is supported
by Colas Út in performing the job.

The Western-Transdanubian Water Directorate
signed the contract with Colas Hungária Zrt. on
16 April 2012 for reconstruction works of the
dam on the river Rába at Szentgotthárd. The
value of the contract is HUF 253,746,000.
Works entail reconstruction of the dam, located
in a rather densely built downtown environment,
which poses a significant challenge with
respect to organisation. The job is made even
more complex by the unpredictable Rába
river, where water level fluctuation may reach
five metres per day during floods, causing
the otherwise calmly gurgling watercourse
to turn swiftly into a raging whitewater river.
Major aspects of the job to be performed are:
maintaining some of the water-level regulatory
functions; technical and structural assessment
and modernisation of the dam; and
environmental assessment and modernisation,
ensuring the conditions for tourism.

Following the concrete-paved left carriageway
of motorway M0 between motorways M1 and
M6, Colas was also tasked with constructing
the asphalt pavement of the right carriageway.
After completion of the left side, 2×3 lanes +
emergency lanes will be available for traffic,
as opposed to the current 2×2 lane setup
without emergency lanes. During construction
of the left carriageway, however, it became
obvious that the asphalt pavement of the right
side also needs reconstruction in addition
to new road markings and the relocation of
safety barriers. The job was awarded to the
“C-M0 Consortium”, uniting Colas Hungária
and Colas Út, and the contract was signed
on 22 May 2012. Approximately 6,900 m3 of
asphalt pavement is to be milled up, followed
by the laying of 36,000 tonnes of new asphalt.
Furthermore, 1.1 km of new noise barriers are
also to be installed. Construction works will be
carried out in four phases, diverting traffic onto
the concrete pavement of the left carriageway
through maintenance bypass points.

M7 at Nagykanizsa:


Oh my God, it's a double rainbow all the way!

Main road 62 Perkáta bypass opened about 2 weeks ago:


Just after the inaguration of the road:






And a gallery before the opening.

The tender to build the M3 between Vaja and Vásárosnamény (11,9 km) wasn't succesfull due to only one company participated on the tender.

Nice route. One thing I never understood in Hungary, why they use only gravel for hard shoulders. It is very dangerous even for cars not saying about lorries.

If it's gravel, then it's soft shoulders. Nice rainbow, btw.

don't worry

since maintenance is a curse word in hungary, in a year's time all kinds of plant seeds will have found their new and comfy, co2 rich home, in two years' time they'll happily grow up to a small flora and after a few more years their dead parts will cement into a nice, semi-hard shoulder

Gravel shoulder is not a bad thing, much harder than classic grass shoulder, it is almost as hard as asphalt shoulder but much more cheaper and important: cannot be used for continous driving which would be more dengerous due to irresponsible overtakings (like eg. on M15 and M19 which has asphalt shoulder).

Much bigger problem that we still don't light up rural intersections and interchanges. Even new M0-M7 IC is not lit up as the video shows (with it's 69.000 M7 / 70.000 M0 AADT).

Hungary receives “2012 Road Safety PIN Award”

"Road deaths in Hungary have been cut by 49% since 2001, helped by a 14% decrease between 2010 and 2011."

In my opinion this one is much better:

Slovakia is building the expressway from Kisce to the border with Hungary, I know that for now Hungary will not build the M30, but I read that they should build a 300m stretch that will connect the normal road to that expressway. Does anyone know when they should build it?The sovak expressway will be open nexy year, si I guess that within 1 year it is possible to build such a small connection.

the preparation of the project will be finished in the first half of 2013, so the construction can be started then. The section will be 1,7 km long
