Morning I've read in one of the daily newspapers , that our government has only one month left to smoothen its "sweetheart" the Second National Development Plan which is mainly based on the Europen Union's budget benefits. Between 2007-2013 Hungary can call down 8000 billion Forints which is an estimated 30 billion Euros (on today's exchange rates). I'm keenly interested what the finished Second National Development Plan will contain. I'm pretty sure that the development of the transit-network is going to get a huge boost. I'll keep you informed about this as well.

The M7 Motorway

The M7 Motorway/Highway is probably one of the oldest developments of the World. It was started in 1964... And it will be finished in 2008. 44 years... No comment... Today the M7 is a none consecutive highway. Its finished between Budapest and Zamardi (90 km). This section was completely modernized durring 2001-2002.

From Zamardi until Balatonszárszó with the viaduct at Köröshegy (pics in the 6th post and here



is going to be finished just before next Christmas if the constructor can work as planned. This section is 14 kms long.
After Balatonszárszó the highway is finished on 46 kms until it reaches Balatonkersztúr. The sector between Balatonkeresztúr and Nagykanizsa (36 kms) is way behind schedule. The government will enounce the winner of that tender this Wednesday. Hopefully...
From Nagykanizsa until Becsehely (17 kms) the highway is in a very advanced condition. Its near completion. We can drive on it from this December.
Here are some photos of this section from the mid-summer:







The highway between Becsehely and Letenye (9 kms) is again finished, construczions ended 2004.11.
Some pictures of this section with the M70 expressway connection:











There is one little piece of the M7 highway left. 1 km at the Croatian border with the bridge over the Mura river. This part of the development is under international public procurement, and I know nothing about it.

Please help me on this one if somebody knows more!

Now the summery of M7:

90+14+46+36+17+9+1 (kms) = 213 kms
The complete highway hopefully will be finished in 2008.

The M70 Expressway

This mainroad was built in 2003-2004. Its a 20 km long 2-laned road connecting Hungary and Slovenia. The M70 starts from the M7 highway at Letenye and ends at the boarder town of Tornyiszentmiklós. As far as I know the government will enounce the result of the widening tender to this development this fall, so the winner can finish this little highway-section by 2007.12.

Some pictures of the existing expressway:

Until 2015 if all the development plans go through from the today's 880 kms (highways + expressway) Hungary's transit-network will rise to 2800-3000 kms.

great picks. Location of Hungary in the region and Budapest within the country are perfect. Not to mention geographical features all together make Hungary perfect place for high-speed highways. I enjoy seeing progress and this is definately it. Keep up the good work
