The M35 motorway is a 35 km (22 mi) motorway in eastern Hungary which connects the M3 motorway with the city of Debrecen, providing it with a direct motorway link to the capital, Budapest.

The section bypassing Debrecen was completed in April 2006, and the whole stretch of road was opened to the public on 15 December 2006. The new road reduced driving time between Debrecen and the capital to under 2 hours.

In the next decade the M35 will be extended towards the Romanian border and Oradea, connecting with the Romanian A3 motorway and thus connecting Budapest with the Romanian capital Bucharest.
