1,600 km of bike paths developed in Hungary
So far, 1,600 kilometers of such development have been implemented in Hungary this year, Minister for Innovation and Technology László Palkovics said in Nyírgyulaj (270 km northeast of Budapest), according to profitline.hu.
Speaking at the ceremonial handover of a more than six km-long cycle path between the village and Nyírbátor, Palkovics said that Hungary is now the third most cycling nation in Europe after the Dutch and the Danes, thanks to the government's infrastructure developments.
György Becsei, the independent mayor of Nyírgyulaj, said that the construction of the Nyírbátor-Nyírgyulaj cycle path was financed at a cost of nearly HUF 421 million from EU and budget funds.
