Under normal conditions, articulated lorries and heavy trucks are not allowed on the roads from 10 p.m. on Saturday to 10 p.m. on Sundays, but this restriction has now been temporarily suspended.

According to ITM, the measure will allow Hungarian companies to organize transportation more flexibly, ensuring the continuous supply of goods.
