Addressing the same press conference, Gergely Karácsony, the new mayor of Budapest, called it a major success for the city’s residents that the projects to be built in connection with the championships would be backed by a majority and would serve all sports-loving people.
Concerning the construction of a new bridge in southern Budapest and a revamp of Chain Bridge, the sides moved closer towards a consensus, but further talks would be necessary. The gap between their views on the completion of the Liget museum quarter in the City Park has not narrowed.
