The power line structure is currently being built over a pair of rails to Balatonfüred (125 km southwest of Budapest), but work will be suspended during the summer season.

Rail transport on the northern shore of Lake Balaton will be faster and more comfortable once the route has been electrified by the National Infrastructure Developer (NIF).

It is currently working on the Szabadbattyán-Balatonfüred section; construction will be completed in the spring of 2021, the paper adds.
