Right, But M85 and M86 are not motorways at all. In Hungary both motorways and expressways are marked with "M" prefix (and in the future even 2+2 national roads will have it).

I read some weeks ago that Hungary & Austria will apply for an EU-funding for part of this road: http://www.meinbezirk.at/oberpullend...-d1429832.html (in German only); maybe this is the reason for the sudden appearance of the project.

(btw, in Austria it won't be the S31 expressway, it will be a national Road, B61a; it is already partially under construction from the current end of S31: map)

I also wonder on the actual savings, it can't be very high.

But I don't think that this is too bad of a road - it has a proper median separation, and at least they have allocated the space for the shoulder, which should allow for easy upgrading later on, if deemed useful.
Plus it seems to be rather compacted material there.... So, could be worse, and maybe they save around 20% costs?

Building just one carriageway but with space reservation for the 2nd carriageway, e.g. embankment and bridges over the road, maybe saves 30..40%. If you just don't pave the shoulders.... 5%?

Are there 60 roads connecting Austria and Hungary?

It seems quite a lot, indeed...
But the border is 360km long, and there are (were, and are partially again nowadays....) almost 30 official border crossings:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%96...staaten#Ungarn (sorry, German only, but it is just a list :-))

So, it might be that there are also other small roads connecting the countries and thus you actually get to that number... Or maybe they count each connection as two roads :-)

Not an expressway officially: another upgraded section was opened to traffic on road 8 yesterday. The 62 kms between Szekesfehérvár and Herend are now almost completely up to expressway standards.

Exceptions are:

-no direct M7 interchange
-Székesfehérvár western bypass -> 7 km under construction, ready in summer 2016
-two at-grade interchanges at Csór
-missing Várpalota bypass -> 5,9 km under construction, ready end of 2017
-not yet upgraded Veszprém bypass

Did the M0 go 2x3 finally ? There were some paving work between M1 and M7. I could not understand a single word in the hungarian thread where the link directs.

Has M0 gained motorway designation with the competion of the widening? I was surprised to see last year that M0 was signed as an expressway - at least between M6 and M31.

It is still, and will remain, an expressway (110 km/h speed limit).

What's the reason behind that? Full motorway characteristics, lane width, emergency lanes, linking a number of motorways etc.

No real reason behind it, could be signed as motorway any time. Maybe they just never gave it a thought to change it. Or they dont want to signpost 110 km/h (or lower speeds) at every interchange, because I dont think they would raise the speed limit to 130 km/h.

public tender for short border section of M30. It will help, because current connection to slovak R4 is very slow with trucks driving at 20kmh

What is the status on the rehabilitation of Road 47 Szeged - Bekescsaba? I know that in the Spring there were heavy works on that road and I had spent much time waiting on traffic lights that were install. I found only this article regarding the works. http://colas.hu/work/150?subs=colas-ut&lang=en

I saw it on Sunday from M43. They were installing some new signs on that road, just after the junction with M43. As far as I could see, that road looked almost completed. I think only the road markings were missing.

Motorway/expressway constructions up to come in Hungary (latest map)

-part of national roads 8, 21, 23, 25, 67, 75, 83, 102 wll be upgraded to 2x2 but will not be grade separated entirely, roundabouts or traffic lights are possible. These will be the "R"-roads.
-M15, M70 and M2 will be widened from 2x1 to 2x2.
-M3, M30, M34, M35, M4, M44, M60, M85 will be constructed as express/motorways.

And I have no idea what they plan with M0...

Ambitious plans, if half of it gets realized, I'd be happy.

M86 is opened except of one section. Why is the entire M86 light green (u/c) on the map?
M30 is not u/c. The tender procedure has recently been started.

I guess M6 should get motorway standard too.

Why should it be an "ambitious plan"? There is no deadline on the map at all! Does the map refer to a press release or any official info which reports about a time period?

Is there any announcement when the construction works of the projects should be started?
