General overviewEdit

The M06 is a major transnational corridor and along with the M03 combines into European route E40.[2] The highway is also part of the Pan-European Transportation corridors III and V as well as the "Europe-Asia" Transportation corridor. It is the second longest route spanning over 800 kilometres (500 mi). For most of its length it is categorized as the category Ia highway in Ukraine (see Roads in Ukraine). The M06 connects four major European routes: E40, E50, E85, and E95.

HistoryEdit

The route from Lemberg via Stryj to the then Austro-Hungarian border belonged until 1918 to the Austrian crown land of Galicia and was called the Stryjer Reichsstraße.[3]
