Preparations for calling the tender for construction are currently underway and the mayor expects a general contractor to be chosen by August 2017 at the latest. The mayor expects work on the building of the port to start in 2018 and finish by mid-2019. 

The costs of the project are being supported by European Union funding of HUF 4.75 bln, MTI reported.
