The M5 motorway is part of the European road network infrastructure and forms part of Hungary’s international route connections between Budapest with the south-eastern regions of the country, cities of Kecskemét, Szeged, and finally border crossing with Serbia.

Initial phase was secured in 1996 with Bouygues and Strabag as the main construction partners. Subsequent phases 2 and 3 completed in 2005.

Total length 156,4 km of Motorway south of Budapest extending to the Serbian border. It includes 3 Operation & Maintenance Centres, 17 interchanges and 8 rest areas.

In 2010 Strabag through its operations company A-WAY have acquired 50% of the operations company which was previously a 100% affiliate of Intertoll Europe.

A-WAY ITE Zrt (50% Intertoll Europe ZRt. affiliate) was in charge of the operation and maintenance of the motorway until April 2018 when Intertoll completed its involvement in the project.
