Gov't To Help Budapest Fund Chain Bridge Renovation
The government will provide 7 billion forints (EUR 21.4m) in supplemental central funding for the renovation of the Chain Bridge and the Castle Hill Tunnel, as per the request of the Budapest metropolitan council, Gulyás Head of the PM’s Office said.

At the same time, the cabinet has requested that the renovation should not take longer than a year and a half to finish, he added.

Gulyás also announced that the electronic road toll would rise by 5.8 percent from January 1 with the extra revenue going towards a “village road fund” that will allow the government to develop the country’s least developed village roads.

The price of 10-day motorway vignettes will rise to 3,500 forints from the current 2,975 forints, he said.
