Sections

M1-M7-M6-M5 section (South)

The 29 kilometre long section between M1 and M5 is the oldest section of the M0 motorway, and originally did not comply with formal motorway specifications. Speed limit on this section was 80 km/h. Construction work in 2011 and 2012 has expanded much of this busy section to 2x(3+1 emergency) lanes, and have allowed for speed limits to be raised to 110 km/h.[1] A new interchange with the new M6 motorway was also opened in September 2008.[2]

The southern section upgraded to a six lane motorway was delivered between M1 and Highway 51 on 30 June 2013.[2] The section between Highway 51 and M5 was renamed Highway M51 when a new section directly connected the M1-M5 section to the M5-M4 section of the M0. This new section was completed on 31 August 2013. (Before the new section was completed M0 shared a section with highway M5, see the map to the right.)

M5-M4 section

The 12 kilometre long section between M5 and the initial section of the future M4 was completed in 2005. Maximum speeds on this section are 110 km per hour.[2]

M4-M3 section (East)

The 26 kilometre long section between the future M4 and M3 was completed in September 2008.[2]

M3-Megyeri Bridge section

The 7 kilometre long section between M3 and the Megyeri Bridge was opened before it connected to the rest of the M0 and was known as Highway 2/B and Highway 2/A. Both 2/B and 2/A are four-lane highways, but Highway 2/A doesn't feature a median between the lanes. Maximum speeds on Highway 2/A are 80 kilometers per hour. It was renamed to M0 when the M5-M3 section was completed. Also opened in September 2008, the Megyeri Bridge, opened in September 2008, further connects M0 to Highway 11.[2]

Highway 11-Highway 10 section

The 9 kilometre section between Highway 11 and Highway 10 is planned and is scheduled for completion in 2014.[2]

Highway 10-M1 section

The 18 kilometre remaining section between Highway 10 and the oldest part of the M0 beginning at the M1 interchange is planned for the future. No construction schedule is known so far,[2] and it not expected to be constructed in the near future due to environmental concerns.
