Such roads are out of the question in the Netherlands. When there are more than one lane per direction, they seperate it.

I don't mind having these kinds of roads, It gives a better option in urban areas to have 4 lanes, because 4 lanes with separation often doesn't fit.

Actually,that is neither expressway,nor a motorway,just as Qtya said. Thats just main road 11. Future plan is to upgrade it to expressway,but thats a plan for the future.

Actually I wanted to make the same comment Chris1491... I have no idea why they built this overpass like this. The road is separated before and after the overpass... That 1-2 meter wouldn't have counted a thing...

M4-M0-M5-Main road 52-Main road 51-M8-M6 from the "mother in law's" seat...

Begining of the future M4, passing Vecsés and Budapest Airport...




Heading towards M0 and M5...





The concrete M0 between Main road 4 and M5...







This is the new M0-M5 interchange/section. The newly built southern section of M0 between Main road 51 and the M5 will join in here around 2009...




Taking M5 motorway...



The M5... Definitely needs a third lane... What are they waiting for?!



Main road 52 and the Kiskunság with the Red Sun!

The road is terrible, but the view...








Listening to Petőfi Radio...



Heading north on Main road 51..







Turning to the west, and entering M8 with the new Pentele Danube Motorway bridge...



Short section of the M8 Motorway...






Pentele bridge...






Entering "Dunántúl" on M8 Motorway...



M8-M6 interchange at Dunaújváros. Turning to the north and taking M6 towards Budapest...






Heading home on M6 Motorway...








Absolutely no traffic on M6... Comparing to M5...

That bridge looks even bigger from the inside than from the outside.

Wow , the M6 has very shiny crashbarriers and reflecting road markings, as can be seen in the last photo! It must have been built by the same master engineers and geniuses who worked on the Struma Motorway, right???

Anyway, seriously speaking: what are they going to do with the SCG country code on signs? They must replace all of them with SRB or something like that!

And it looks like the M8 is badly needed - I thought the M5 was congested in summer because of people's vacations and restrictions on trucks, but in fact it seems to keep getting worse.

All traffic from Romania to Italy and Spain passes near Budapest at the moment (and there are a lot of Romanians in Spain, just watch how Spain votes at the Eurovision ). A more southern connection would be needed - but until Serbia joins the EU, all the weight falls on Hungary's shoulders.

M5 is congested since it was taken over by the gov(and extremely high toll was abolished),and since it has reached the serbian border,and of course,since Romania joined the EU.

I think those were built that high so that the cables wont touch the river when they are dilated.

Some aerials about the u/c M0 ringroad.

because its a 2 level interchange now, as the roundabout connects the supermarkets and the M0 ramps. Main direction Budapest-Szentendre is separated on the flyover. It is like the M8-road 6 Dunaújváros interchange:

Welcome to the forum!
I think they were referring to the middle barrier...which isnt present on the flyover itself.
