The Hungarian government has decided to allocate a total 100 billion forints (EUR 31m) for road renovation projects as part of the Hungarian Villages Programme, the government’s commissioner for modern communities said on Monday.
Alpár Gyopáros said half of the grand total would be spent on renovating 250 kilometres of roadways at 89 road sections this year. The programme will continue in 2020 with projects using the second 50 billion forints, he said.
Road works will be undertaken throughout the country in all 19 counties, he added.
