The new M44 is the same road type as the M51. No shoulders at all.The M44 is part motorway with proper tarred hard shoulders, part gravel shoulders and part no shoulders at all....not even gravel...is it not???
It is a widened main road without free alternative (#1) and no grade-separated crosses (#2). There needed a new main road, a renovation, and rebuilding all the intersections to open an Expressway Békéscsaba-Gyula.
Several years ago Google Maps used Light Blue color for Expressways,I don't understand why Google Maps uses this layout. It's almost impossible to see which roads are motorways and which are not, and most map features have colors that are very near to each other. The contrast is ridiculously bad. I almost get a headache by looking at Google Maps.

I think that the first kms east of M5 will be dedicated as M8 (one day). Is there any info about the estimated constrution periods for M8 and M44? Is it possible that M44 might be built and opened without the M8 extension to M5 or is it very likely that both will be open at once? Or is it even likely that M8 might be opened first?Kecskemét - Szentkirály: design phase
9.9km seems to be the length of the lot. The distance between the current M44 end and the future Lakitelek interchange is about 9km only. That's what should be opened in 2021. The few hundreds of meters west the exit can only being put into service together with the next section. Then, likely another about 6km of M44 could be opened.Szentkirály - Lakitelek: 4,9 - tendered for construction (contract expected to be signed before yearend, and should be finished in 2023)
Lakitelek - Tiszakürt: 9,9 km - u/c (expected to be completed in Aug 2021)
Really?^^ I think it's the best solution for a temporary end.
