Yes, this is good ... but if we decide to play sandbox mode , we can also ask for
-M85 or even M86 to Austria
-M6 or even M60 to Croatia
-M2 and M30 to Slovakia
-M4, M49 or even M44 to Romania
Not to mention converting M70 and M15 to 2x2 lane motorways.

M4 will be linked with roumanian A3, M49 (when will be done) probably will be linked with a new expressway till Baia Mare (at least), but for M44 I really don't see a future over the border. Basically it will be mainly for hungarian speleologist trying to get faster towards Apuseni Mountains and the caves in that area since there is not an important long traffic route over here.

Some new picture apper from the area of border crossing [URL="http://www.puterea.ro/economie/autostrada-a1-arad-nadlac-aproape-de-finalizare-galerie-foto-112749.html"]in this article (in roumanian)

Unofficial they say that it will be ready somewhere between 15 -30 June.
AFAIK, the only operational parts of the Romanian A3 are the Bucharest-Ploiesti part and the bypass of Cluj-Napoca.....the road is really challenging because if the Transylvanian mountains and I don't think it it will be constructed all the way to Bors (Hungarian border) until 2022-2023......this means that the A1-M43 is going to serve as the main motorway border crossing between the 2 countries.

About what they unofficially said (that the M43-A1 will be ready somewhere between 15 -30 June), I have to say that these are some very good news......I hope this to become true.

Well, its an interchange, so its not exactly on the expressway. However, this alignment is a real pain in the ass, i hope it doesnt spread Hungary.

Lets just say, M1/M85 direct interchange has not been built yet.

This is important, but I think no less important is:
1. Close of the M0 ring road (part of North-West),
2. 3-rd c/w on the M7 (section M0 - Siofok),
3. 3-rd c/w on the M1 (section M0-Tatabanya or continue to Gyor).

YeS, but I was only talking about our international connections. I' can make a separate list for the other "sandbox" projects.

In fact this IC is before the begining of the expressway, not "on".

(By the way roundabout is accepted on expressway.)

This is still used in Norway:


This can also be used, not to warn about a nice fence, but in case the level crossing has a gate:


At least it does warn that a gate is coming up. Trains after the gate? Well you have to figure that out yourself.

But almost everyone who sees the M1, M5 or M43 think that M means Motorway, although most Hungarians
This "M" sinage was indeed modelled after the Btitish - dating back to '64 or '65, but the anti Western sentiments suggested here, and hence the "Magyarország" or "magyar" interpretations also ring a lot more contemporary bell.

We followed the German standards in the autobahn building when we restarted the highway constructions and the "M" means "magyar" really. For example M1 = 1st Hungarian road.

The indefinite suspension is correct, all the rest is not, that is based on some misleading government propaganda. The EU expressed no opinion in connection with footing the bill for the relevant section of M4, as the Hungarian government never even asked for this. There might have been some informal "oh no!" over the preposterous price tag, and that was used by the government as an excuse for stopping the project. The real reason is a sudden nasty conflict between Pime Minister Orbán, - who is practically the dictator of Hungary now, and the No.1 oligarch, Simicska, who used to provide the economical background for Orban's party. Simicska openly called Orbán a "scumbag" (in the public media). Until then the government had absolutely no problem with the price, on the contrary, they were defending it. Btw Simicska was the contractor of the middle section that included the Tisza river bridge, which imo may be the only part that is actually not overpriced. I know:

So in 1964 or '65, a "socialist" country opted to name its roads following the example of a leading capitalist country? Seems a bit unlikely to me.

The anti-Western sentiment was a bit stronger when we could see the image in your avatar in all the places.
