I think Hungary´s motorways look all the same. I don´t like that. I love variaty but there´s not much variaty there so it´s boring. The quality of them is good, the asphalt feels very smooth and soft. I like the M5 motorway from Serbian border, which is pretty new.

Nice bridge, great photos, but I don't understand the central crash barrier. What are those canted screens, or whatever they are? Why are they present on some of the bridge but not all?


BTW, thanks, everyone, for this excellent thread.

There were traffic jams, because as You said it was the first day of opening, and everyone wanted to see and drive on the new bridge.

I don´t get why few peaces of the crashbarriers are shiny but the other peaces not.

The updated summary can be found here:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=2318

Kijavítottam a hibákat,és beraktam a kis képeket is,és tényleg egész jól mutatnak. Kérlek titeket,mondjátok meg hogy szerintetek mivel lehetne jobbá/szebbé/használhatóbbá/stb tenni,és utána a következő alkalommal már azok benne lesznek!

/

Please help me make the summary better. I've corrected the pointed-out factual errors,and tried in the small pic-designations(which look good BTW). If you have any observations/ideas/comments on it,please aid my work with it!

the bridge has two separate deck (excluding the cable stayed section)
between the two deck there is a gap (about 1m wide), and this gap is protected by that grid...

I think that this bridge looks great and that Hungary is doing great job in motorway construction. By the way, I didn't know the M0 ring is so long, 73km from this bridge to M7, for example!

This is the current motorway/expressway network we have

Currently, the network is ~1070-ish kms long.
Vague final plan is this:

Progress on the Hungarian motorway network

Fully completed motorways/expressways

M1

The M1 is the oldest completed motorway in Hungary. Construction started in 1964 with the M1-M7 common section and finished in 1996. It connects Budapest with Austria (A4 at Hegyeshalom). It is 108km long.

M7

The M7 motorway is the oldest motorway in Hungary. The first separate section of it (because the section inside Budapest of it is common with the M1’s) was inaugurated in 1966,with half-profile. It was (and still is) important for the country, because this leads to the largest lake in Hungary, the Balaton. It was completed to the lake’s northernmost tip in 1970,half-profile all the way.
The M7 has currently the biggest motorway viaduct in Hungary,which is 1872m long. The road is completed except for a short 1 km stetch on the border,which is to be finished not long after this update(01.10.2008),then the motorway will be 242,3km long. The section Székesfehérvár-M0 has 2+3 lanes,3 going to Budapest.

M43

M43 is currently the shortest motorway in Hungary. It is 3 km long, and currently serves only as the bypass of Szeged. The continuation of it was brought sooner in this year, because freight traffic tripled on main road 43 from Romania and Bulgaria after they joined the EU. Construction works on it will start this year, all the way to the border. This short section was inaugurated in 2005,along with the M5 when it reached Szeged.

M6

M6 currently is the biggest priority of the country. It is currently 56 km long. 7,7km is missing between M0 and M6. Construction works on it until Bóly will commence this year, which is another 114km. It will reach the Croatian border at Ivánvárda, but the date is uncertain. The motorway will be finished by the march of 2010,along with M60. Construction works on it will start this year. The section Érdi-tető – Dunaújváros was finished in 2006.
M6 will be the first motorway in the country to have tunnels. There are 4 planned on it, the longest will be slightly over 1km long.

M60
M60 will be a short motorway, connecting Pécs to M6. It will be finished by the march of 2010,because Pécs will be the Cultural Capitol of Europe in that year. Construction works will start on it this year. It will be 55km long.
It is possible the motorway wont end at Pécs but go further,to provide better bypass for the city.

M8

M8 is also a very short expressway. It was built because there are not very much bridges on the Danube outside Budapest. So it only consists of a bridge, and a few kms of motorway. It was built with the first section of M6. M8 will form a large half-ring in the country that wont touch Budapest. ProBable route is RáBafüzes-Veszprém-Dunaújváros-Szolnok.
It is currently 10,2 km long, while it will be 330,2km when it will be finished. The lone bridge was inaugurated in 2007.

M9

The M9 is also a short expressway, built with the very same intention as M8, but farther from Budapest. It is 21km long now, and has no connection with the rest of the network. It will be 335 km long, with the approximate route of Sopron-Nagykanizsa-Szekszárd-Szeged. This short segment was inaugurated in 2003.

To save electricity? Or because drivers might pay more attention to the bridge than to the road?

I dont think it recquires too much energy...
but if we want to save money we should stop the illumination of the significant buildings and structures, shouldnt we?

(and if someone's attention is distracted from driving by illumination of a bridge, s/he should give back his/her driving licence... )

it looks pretty awesome, but i don't think it should distract drivers...
people can throw a look up and see it, but most of them will keep on driving even if they are looking up there... it's not so hard...
