Hungary adds 150 km of bike paths in 2020
About 150 km of new bike paths were added in Hungary in 2020, at a cost of some HUF 15 billion, including spending from municipalities, state secretary for transport policy László Mosóczi said on Tuesday.
The National Infrastructure Development Company (NIF) and state-owned road maintenance company Magyar Közút built or upgraded 85km of the total at a cost of HUF 8.5 billion, Mosóczi said. The rest of the additions were local council projects, he added.
Among the new bike paths was the final stretch of a bikeway that circles all the way around Lake Tisza.
The state now maintains more than 1,000 km of bike paths connecting settlements.
