on tuesday next week the two prime ministers (Slovenia, Hungary) will open the border crossing M70/A5 (Tornyiszentmiklós/Pince); this is the first border crossing without controls built after the Schengen enlargement.
yeah, let's shake hands

Hungary to open last section of M7 motorway, Adriatic Sea "comes closer"

http://www.portfolio.hu/en/cikkek.tdp?k=2&i=15553

The last 15-kilometre section of the M7 motorway in Hungary, between Zalakomár and Nagykanizsa, will be inaugurated on Tuesday, which will ensure an uninterrupted motorway journey to the Adriatic Sea. The border crossing on M70 will also be opened on Tuesday, just like the Pince-Lendava-Beltinci section in Slovenia, Hungarian news portal index.hu reported on Monday.

The first (half) motorway section of the M7 motorway was built 42 years ago, and the last, cc. 16-km section between Zalakomár and Nagykanizsa, will make the stretch between Budapest and the Croatian border complete.

A new four-lane, 216-metre-long, motorway bride (Zrínyi Bridge) at the Letenye-Gorican border crossing is under construction and is expected to be completed by Zagreb-based Hidroelektra Niskogradnja d.d. by October. Costs of the construction, EUR 8 million in total, are covered 50-50% by Hungary and Croatia.

From October, a direct motorway route will lead to the Adriatic Sea on the Hungarian M7, and the Croatian A4 motorways, from Budapest and the inner part of Hungary. Moreover, as soon as the eastern sector of the M0 roundabout(ringroad - Rawlee) is completed and opened to the public, people from northeast counties can also have an uninterrupted journey to the sea.

Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsány and Transport Minister Pál Szabó will inaugurate another motorway section on Tuesday, as the Pince-Lendava-Beltinci section, the continuation of Hungary's M70 corridor, and the Tornyiszentmiklós-Pince border crossing will also be opened to the public.

However, there is still no filling station on the M7/M70 route between Siófok and the Croatian/Slovenian border. The first petrol stations on the M7 at Lake Balaton could be up and running at the end of the year at the earliest. This creates a problem not for those whose tank is drying up but also for those who want to buy an M7 motorway sticker on this section.

It seems like the hard shoulders are as wide as a normal lane - so it is possible to make a 2x3 road out of it!?

Smart to do that. Budapest is a large city, and if it ever gets the mobility we see in like Belgium or the Netherlands, that 3rd lane will become very much needed.

IMO it will be widened in the next decade... Even so the northern half of the future circle will be closed down for trucks...

It doesn't make any sense to me. When whole ring around Budapest will be finished its southern part will be still much more congested so I think the more cars which will use the northern part instead the better.

No... Because the whole Buda part is in an environmental protection zone..

Only solution is in tunnels...imagine a 30km long tunnel...M0 will be expanded till main road 10 in the close future,but the rest is...
(from roads.extra.hu)

As you can see,even this section will include at least 2 tunnels.

If a motorway can be build there, then the trucks are just little detail which won't harm the environment a lot. There will be tunnels and there may be overpasses for animals so the motorway won't become barrier and exhaust gases from the cars won't cause big damages. Much bigger environmental damages would be caused by the jams on southern part of the ring.

Motorways can be build in environment-sensitive areas. There are other ways to construct a motorway than the American style of blasting through a natural area with concrete freeways.

A few options;

1) Tunnels, most expensive
2) cut& cover, also expensive
3) half-below grade motorway with natural walls. expensive, but the motorway can't be seen unless you're in the air.
4) A combination

I would suggest using double layer PAC as pavement. It's expensive and needs maintenance, but noise is being reduced significantly compared to ordinary asphalt or concrete.
