This paper aims to evaluate the Hungarian road infrastructure from a sensitivity point of view, regarding the effect that a given element can have on the average value of the shortest paths and the maximum flow among nodes. Based on the defined values of the average growth of shortest path distances and of the maximum flow indicator it is possible to select those infrastructure components of the Hungarian road network which can have the most significant effect on network vulnerability. Improving these weak points of the infrastructure system can result a more secured and more stable network.
