Service was restarted on the full length of Budapest's number 3 metro line on Monday as a five-year, HUF 225 billion renovation winds up, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony acknowledged the work of everyone involved in the renovation project.
Regional Development Minister Tibor Navracsics noted that European Union funding covered two-thirds of the cost of the investment.
EU funding for the project came to HUF 172.7 billion, state co-financing reached HUF 44.8 bln and the municipal council contributed HUF 7.1 bln.
Metro 3 trains will not stop at the Nagyvárad tér and Lehel tér stations until the full project is completed in May.
