Heading home on Main road 6...









Construction works of the future M6 Motorway...



One of the new Fords of Hungary's "Finests"... I was stuck behind him for like 25 kms...





Entering Paks... Which reminds me of a stupid knock-knock joke...

Knock-knock!
-Who's there?
+Active!
-Active who?
+Radio-active!



Ok, that's not funny at all...

So Hungary's only Nuclear power plant(4 blocks) is in the city of Paks...



This guy is funny! (Or some one else...) And how true he is! Just think about it!





Main road 6 with the Danube...



Arriving to Main road 6 - M8 Motorway junction... Dunaújváros, which is built mainly around the Dunaferr Steel plant...







Entering M8...

From here you'll see pics of M8 and M6... Nothing new, I have posted photos about these motorways several times before...











Racing one of MÁV's STADLER Flirts...



"Beautiful" scenery... M6 with MOL Hungarian Oil Co's refinery at Százhalombatta... Actually it's proved to be more efficient then ÖMV's one at Schwechat! Ok, that was dick measuring...



Snow clouds in the middle of March...





M0... No comment...



THE END! (for now)

I'm not saying it's top priority, that would obviously be false, but it would still be very important...

Weird speedometer.. First it goes into steps of 10, then 20, then 30? I haven't driven a car yet which had that too...

Lol, 40k - 50k is considered a very quiet freeway in NL

Seriously, we have 2x2 motorways ranging from 80 k to 110 k...

It's funny to see 60 km/h so high on the speedometer (1/3 of it), at half you're only on 100 km/h, but then it suddenly reaches 280 km/h. No recession for Qtya. M6 looks great, btw!

The piont of this speedometer is that lower speeds were to be easily seen. Pretty useful thing.

well, you are "the another side of the horse", so you are not a good example for right development scheduling...

but I think we can wait for 60-70k before starting widening...

the problem is that we are neglecting our main roads and focusing only on motorways...

Actually,on M5,the traffic is high. In Pest county,it can reach 40000 vehicles. Ok,thats not much,but this translates to 53000 unit vehicles,meaning there's a lot of trucks on it. Even in Bács-Kiskun county,there's always a 10000 unit vehicle difference between the numbers. There's a constant presence of 5-10000 trucks/buses(heavier than 3,5t),~25% of which are heavy trucks(camion).

couple of pix from NW hungary, today


leaving my home town Tatabánya on main road nr 1.


mediocre asphalt here



main road nr 1. north of Tatabánya
brand new layer of asphalt from last autumn







main road nr 1. ducking underneath Budapest-Wien main railroad




turning off main road nr 1. toward my home village Szárliget



typical hungarian rural road connecting villages to main roads: mediocre asphalt, nothing fancy, paint only in the middle




me speeding




same rural road ducking under the same railroad line (bp-wien)



horsemen turn left



turning off the rural road and into my home village Szárliget



the unfortunate reality: very very bad asphalt quality, the errors from last winter have just been "fixed" (yea, quotes) as evidenced on the right side of the picture
also my car is dirty




turning onto the street where i grew up, hill in the bg



the "instrument", the street where i grew up and the house where i grew up



highway M1 north of Tatabánya


biggest bird in 10.000 mile radius


M1 again




nearing accident between Tata and Tatabánya, M1




past the site of accident



destination: Tata



thats all i could manage after watching BSGs final ep

My point is that if we have 1500 trucks,and the following distance between them is the same as their length,that means its useless for every other vehicles because of the potential speed difference(130 vs 90) That means,that 1500 truks take up the space of 3000.

I think the official capacity estimations dont take the following distance of trucks into consideration (it is useless for other vehicles). Even if they keep 50-100 m following distance,that wont be used. This lowers the capacity of the road drastically. If a truck is 25m long,that means 125m is "lost" due to 1 single truck.
