Time is not proportional with length...both the 30 km of M43 here and 200km of M6 will be inaugurated in 2010...and both were started this year.

I assume it depends a lot on the number and length of bridges, viaducts and tunnels... the M43 for instance has to cross a major river (Tisza).

M6 has 4 tunnels,1km is the longest...with a lot of smaller-bigger bridges. Time is not an element in the equation. It only depends on how many people work on it. Remember,even bridges were built under 1 night in WWII...

"M6 has 4 tunnels,1km is the longest"

1331m + 399m + 865m + 418m North to South. + about 80(!) bridges, viaducts, e.g.: 481m, 830m, 450m, 491m, etc.

^ You can notice them on the last pic, although it's too far away to be readable.

Are the last 7-8 posts some kind of a refined ex-yugo humour that we simply just can't understand or it is just some off-topic non-sense ?

Anyway on topic:

Yep. There was a recent visit of the PM of the construction site and everyhitng seemed to be going steady on course.(as much as we can believe our PM anymore though). The dead line is end of 2009 for teh whole length. Anyway - "Mapa Cingiz" - the company that is responsible for the builidng anounced that they could finish 6 months before dead line if they are allowed to hire 500 more workers from abroad. That company btw , did the lot Burgas-Karnobat of Trakia Motorway few years ago and i haven't heard any bad words about the quality of their work so far.
