Some nice pics about the new M0 section,and an unofficial statistic:
-about 30000 vehicles use the new section daily slightly more than 1 week after its inauguration,and most of them used the city's roads before!

A little OT, but is it really that bad to drive in Hungary?

not that bad until you stay on motorways...

(and since last tuesday all of our motorways are connected together* so you can drive quite a lot of distance without leaving the motorways...

* M3 and M2 are connected to the motorway system by the eastern section of M0)

i think is not bad at all, i'm from romania and for me it's a real pleasure to drive in hungary.and i drive mostly on national roads and county roads, cause that's the best way to know a country, and the roads are very good.also, in budapest, drivers are quite polite, they often let u enter a major road or leave your parking place, even if they have priority.

Bad roads - there are,of course,but a tourist wont find much.
Shitty drivers - thats subjective. Rules are generally obeyed,but there are exceptions(or at least,they think they're exceptions).
Confusing signs - I've never got lost yet,even in unknown area,but that might depend on how good the driver is.

It also depends how known you are with the signage system. Foreigners probably get lost in Spain with their massive amount of road numbers, yet everyday commuters can find their way around Madrid

The sign itself is pretty clear. I'm not a proponent of E-roads, so in my opinion their numbers don't really need to be signed. Also the country code shields are not completely necessary. I rather have the left sign above the lanes like a gantry, but it does the job this way.

But Hungarian signage seems way better to me than, for example, Austrian signage.

The "shields" are to make a distinct line between the base colour of the board and the colour of the road number.

The location of the signs(not right above the road) is only present in junctions,else they're above:

I find E-road numbers and country code shields very useful when I'm driving abroad. If you know which E-road you need, you don't have to deal with the sometimes confusing local numbering, or the long foreign settlement names which you can't really read, just follow the E-number. Same for country shields. For example when I was bypassing Vienna on A21 and S1, it was the easyest to follow "H", and don't care about the loads of other destinations.

I like those distance signs to the radiating highways and motorways out of Budapest. Very useful.

The newly opened northern section of M6...

First photos from the new M6-M0 connection. It was Sunday morning alright but the traffic on M6 was ridiculously low...

Leaving M0...










M0 from the M6 overpass...



On the road again... Entering Hungarian Motorway Nr 6...



















Completely empty...











Turning back at Érd...









Facing the south...





And the north...



Going back...















That Hotel was 4 stared before the constructions begun... I have no idea a motorway in the backyard is an advantage or not...





This is the place where it all ends...





M0-M6 junction...





Entering M0 again...
