A one lane, but freeflowing section should be able to carry about 30,000 vehicles a day, maybe more in areas without a significant rushhour.
With huge traffic jams in summer.

Those should be widened to 2x2 at least, but the sections I was talking about were in Normandy, where there isn't that much summer traffic or trucks.

The tunnels in Croatia ought to be widened to 2x2 imo.

14.03.2008.

I had a trip from my village (Taksony) to Budaörs and to back from there and I decided to make some photos about some main roads and the M0(south).

91 images total.

The route:



1. Exiting my village, this is the main road 510 (2nd class road).



2. The main road 510 again, here in 2007 was the AADT 11000.



3. Turning right, towards Szigethalom.



4. This bridge built in 1998, called Taksony Vezér-híd (50 metre long).



5. This is a 3rd or 4th class road (I dont know), and this is Szigethalom in the background.



6. Big traffic inside Szigethalom.



7. Approaching the newly built roundabout (on the left side next month going to opening a TESCO).



8. The same road towards Budapest and Halásztelek, The old military airport of Tököl on the left side.



9. At the and of Halásztelek, this is the radio tower of Lakihegy in the background it was built in 1933 and it is 314 metre high (the highest structure in Hungary).



10. This small traffic jam means we are approaching to the interchange with M0 ( approx. 400 metre).



11. Very mysterious sing, something is 200m far away but what?



12. Ahhh, the M0.



13. Going under the M0.



14. Turning right to the M0.



15. On the expressway, cool.



16. Old signage, but we know that we are on the M0 and on three other E-oads.



17. Approaching the Hárosi Duna-híd (Danube) this is 770 metre long and built in 1990.



18. Interchange with the main road 6, the speed limit is 80km/h.



19. This section of the M0 (6-M1) built in 1994. On this overpass the speed limit is 70km/h because the too hard curve.



20. In the middle of the curve. (the overpass is 235 metre long)



21. Our beloved speed camera. From here the speed limit is 80km/h bu the camera watches to the 70km/h section.



22. Approaching the new M6 interchange.



23. The collectors begins here.



24. The duplicated section begins here.



25. This is the full width of one side of the M0 south.



26. The speed limit is 100km/h of the reconstructed sectoin.



27. The reconstructed section built from concrete.



28. The M6 overpass.



29. After the M6, this is a small underpass above the Nagytétényi út(road).



30. An electronic sing.



31. Approaching the exit with the main road 7.



32. At the exit, the speed limit is 80km/h again.



33. A funny sign, approaching the end of the reconstructed section.



34. Back to the old pavement.



35. A small uphill section. This is the entrance (?) lanes from the main road 7 to the M0 on the right side.



36. A small section with climbing lanes.



37. Approaching to the Annahegyi pihenőhely (rest area of Annahegy).



38. A small section with pine trees and a pedestrian bridge in the far.



39. Double speed cameras, double enjoyment.



40. The Annahegyi pihenőhely (rest area of Annahegy).



41. The other side.

Thx for the great phototrip!
I suggest you to post a bit bigger pictures for bigger experience

The M0-South is probably the last place in Hungary where you can still see the old green signs on a motorway/expressway.

Why were the signs changed? I mean the colour scheme.

It was said that it is an EU regulation that motorway signs should be blue, though it is not true (like in Slovakia where it is the other way around, green for motorways and blue for the rest). But I don't think it is a bad idea at all, I like the blue signs, and to distinguish motorway destinations from ordinary roads.

Nice pictures! What are the plans for this substandard part of M0? It will be a great chokepoint in the future, if it is not already.

Some of the signs are a bit "busy" though, mainly because of all the integrated E-numbers.

A bit small, but nice photos. I didn't know the M0 was so surrounded by greenery in so many places.

M0 51-M5 (new 6 km section): waiting for bid.
M0 M1-M6 (upgrade): waiting for result.
M0 M6-51 (upgrade with two bridges): waiting for tender.

M9

I made this little detour just for you guys! See how much SSC and the forumers here mean to me?

Ok. M5 you know, loads of pics in the past...

Crouded as always... Definitely needs a third lane, at least until Kecskemét...



So much for the economic crises and worldwide recession... The third trailer full of Porsches I was passing...



No pics of main road 52 and other roads that I seriously doubt even got a number passing settlements like Izsák, Soltszentimre, Csengőd, Akasztó, Kiskőrös, Öregcsertő and Kalocsa...







Arriving to the town of Kalocsa, and turning south on main road 51 towards (Baja) my main goal, M9 expressway...





Heading south on Main road 51... Still within the borders of Kalocsa...



Main road 51...



The quality...










Arriving to the roundabout where M9 ends today...



Entering the roundabout and then M9 towards the city of Szekszárd and Main road 6 (+ u/c M6)...





M9 (No, I'm not in GB, just took the pic while overtaking...)





Boring...





Szent László (M9) bridge over the Danube...







M9 again after the bridge...





After a few kms at the village of Bogyiszlo, I took the exit, cas' I wanted to take some more pics of the Szent László bridge... Well, the car wasn't designed for this...





Driving on the levee(?), you know beside the river...





I give you, the Szent László (M9) bridge!









The house of the levee-guard(Pelikán-elvtárs/comrade maybe?)...





Took the same terrible road back and returned to M9...



Nearing U/C M9-M6 interchange... As I could tell the second two lanes of M9 WONT be built! (Bad quality... )

















Reached my goal... Returning home... End of part I.

Thanks for the pics, how come you need a vignette for this 2-lane M9 expressway? (you don't need it for M70, f.e., just trucks and buses) Btw, this road really sucks. PS: nice new car. Again.

Goody, distance tables on non-motorways, we have to learn from Hungary to use those in NL too.
