I don't think that illumination of historical sites, for example, is a waste of money. It makes a city more beautiful and that brings more tourists. But I agree that illuminating a bridge outside the city is perhaps unnecessary.

this bridge is on the BORDER of the city, it has significant traffic in the night (till midnight), and there are two large residential district with 10 stories buildings...

so I think there would be enough people to see the illumination...

Although there are informations flying around in the media about the illumination, it´s not going to happen. We do like illuminate our historical buildings, bridges (as many other countries) so it won´t happen...remember it is Budapest not som far countryside.

The city is a construction site for some time.A southwest-northeast axis is closed because of metro4,the BAH junction(M1-M7's end in the city) is also closed for reconstructions.And now,even half of downtown Pest is closed because of the NATO-summit...

Map of reconstructions aug 15-oct 31:


And the previous reconstructions this year:

And now it seems these M0 tunnels are really necessary unlike those M6 tunnels.

Earliest I could find is 2017. Technically,90 is the limit there,which trucks can do easily too,so...

Neither do I,but it saves you a lot of gas! And there are much more important projects now that need money than M15.

70 is worse for fuel consumption than 90.

The problem is you need only one slow truck to slow all traffic behind it. I see it all the time, driving 65 - 70 on roads with an 80 limit in the Netherlands. Busy roads with lots of trucks require at least safe overtaking lanes (2+1).

Ok,let me put it this way: There's about 6600 vehicles on it(or 11000 unit vehicles-a vehicle can be from 0,3 unit to 2,5),while on main road 5(along M5!!!) its more,even 4x at some places(25000 unit vehicles). Conclusion: Traffic is not high at all on it,especially if we consider that the short M6 has the same traffic.
