Works are going on on M43 Motorway. Here are 2 pictures from Mako exit. First one was shot on Friday evening:



Second one is from Sunday. They were working!

The only place on the Hungarian motorway network where I saw they still use green signs is at M0/M1 interchange, just west of Budapest:





I guess they will change them once M0 (M1-M7 section) will be upgraded to 3 lanes.

I've also noticed they did a small change at the M5/M43 interchange signs. Old sign (old photo I had):



New sign, same place:

Does anyone know what the story is here?

https://www.google.com/maps/@47.8440...Pz5h1U4QFA!2e0

These look like old tollbooths, but what are they doing there? Did Hungary use barrier tolls before they implemented vignettes, or was this a form of tolling system similar to what Slovenia uses for trucks?

AFAIK Hungary had one private motorway (M5), but I am not sure if it had toll booths.

This seems to be ordinary "drive-in" matrica-vignette sales point. The images are from 2011 when e-toll for truck was not introduced yet.

M5 had toll booths in the past (for example at Újhartyán, near Dabas) but you can't find them now. You can only see where the motorway was wider in the past to make room for the booths here.

Though there is a booth at Kecskemét North where they measure the weight of trucks.

But why do those sales points have what appears to be electronic displays for showing the tolls, then?

(incidentally, are there any other such drive-in points exist? I'm presuming this one exists to cater for the traffic that entered via Rajka...)

Do you know when those were taken apart? Because I remember some scary booths on E-75 in year 2004-2005, but I might confuse it with that in Greece near Evzoni

Rajka uses former border control booths for that purpose so this might be designated for drivers coming from Vienna. But I always wonder about that booths like you Never dared to drive without sticker on that short M1 section. And it is much easier to purchase Matrica via internet

In the M5 the booths were dismantled around 2004 - and as far as I remember they looked different than the Greek ones you posted.

I'd say yes, because there's a Slovenian truck on the picture.

There were some very scary ones in Macedonia that looked like they dated from Yugoslav times - maybe you were thinking of them? They were absolutely wrecked when I was there two years ago.

Something just doesn't seem right - there's a huge parking area at the border when you come from Vienna, so this sales point seems really weird and out of place. The grass verge after the booths also looks very strange and not quite right, so - I don't know.

Unless those are just old booths used from the M5 and the area exists to deal with traffic from Rajka that didn't need to buy a vignette for the M15?

Either way, it's an odd construction.

Verso - go away with your strange methods of tolling and trolling :P

I am just scared of abandoned objects It was in 2004 when I travelled on E-75 in passenger car for the first time and don't remember everything. Are there some old photos from that gates on M5?


Btw. I wonder how thoroughly were parking places near former border crossings mapped by Google_streetview employees

Screenshot of the "strange toll gate at M1" from GE dated to 2001. Strange. It was through all lanes.
