“An extraordinary announcement” – is the description of a video posted on Saturday morning by Secretary of State Tamás Menczer of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade on his social media page.
In the Facebook post, Tamás Menczer reported that the opening of the Páty exit (central Hungary) of the M1 motorway will be on December 15 at noon, writes Világgazdaság.
He drew attention to the fact that
this is a long-awaited development in the region and that the investment is of great importance, as it will greatly facilitate the daily lives of more than 25,000 people living in Páty, Biatorbágy, Budajenő, Telki, and Budakeszi (all near the capital, in central Hungary).
He added that the Páty bypass section is already under construction and will be inaugurated in the spring.
The total investment is financed by the government to the tune of HUF 5.8 billion (EUR 15,299). The State Secretary for Foreign Affairs recalled that the project started during the COVID pandemic, when Péter Szijjártó headed the Operative Board responsible for reviving the economy.
“With the support of Minister Péter Szijjártó, I was able to push it through Hungary’s Operative Board (created in 2020, with the task of coordinating the response to the COVID pandemic) and then through the government,”
he emphasized. Menczer called it a great and joint success that these developments have continued and are being completed despite the Ukrainian war and sanctions.
This is not the only road development in the country that makes people’s lives easier every day. As Hungary Today reported
earlier in November, the development of highway 67 entered its final phase, and with the completion of the Látrány bypass, motorists are able to reach Lake Balaton from Kaposvár. The new four-lane section of the highway was opened months ahead of schedule.
