I think this one should be closed. This is the oldest, and doesn't have any posts the longest.

(Ex-)expressway section of 3 (M3-Gyöngyös)

It was upgraded to expressway in 1982 when the construction of the M3 motorway was temporary cancelled.

Nice video.

The landscape looks really empty (maybe it's because of the weather), and the road has almost no traffic! Did you took this video today?

The landscape is empty. The country there is flat. And it was a bit foggy/snowy.
The traffic...well yes...I took it today,around 16h. As it is sunday afternoon,and weekend,neither people drive that much nor trucks allowed. And this is currently an end-ish part of the motorway,so traffic here is still low. It will be high when it will reach Ukraine.
I was amazed that the traffic was very low near Budapest too. Around 6-8,it is usually packed with cars,with average pace in slow lane is 90,and in fast lane is ~150,now(~5:30) it was "empty",and I was the fastest with 130.

The green signs are the old ones, and the blue is the EU norm... At least, this is what we were told...

I mean, the blue is the color of the motorways, or expressways, and the green is the color of the Main roads...

Earlier all main roads, inculding the motorways were green, as You can see it on the first photo...

What he is trying to say is that the signs on the old parts have not been changed yet. I guess they will wait until reconstruction.

I think since we applied for entry into the EU,because motorways older than 3 years have blue colour too.

and this reconstruction - are there maybe some plans about capital reconstruction of M5 or you're just talking about ordinary maintenance?

btw, we have successfully changed all our signs in last 5-6 years (not only motorway nor only direction signs, but all the signs at motorways and other roads because we have changed their design completely)

This was just a wild guess. The "most major" reconstructions require closure of one side(at least,those were the most majors I've ever seen),and since overhead signs cant be changed while there is traffic...I dont know. M3 saw much major reconstructions this year,I suspect M5 will come in the next years.
