State-owned road maintenance company Magyar Közút Nonprofit (MKN) spent HUF 3 billion to paint new road surface markings and make other improvements on about half of the country's 15,000 kilometers of roads in January-June, MKN told MTI on Monday.
More than HUF 1.3 billion was spent to make improvements, such as installing new warning signs, reflectors and stop lights, and rebuilding traffic junctions at almost 70 locations.
In 2011, MKN plans to spend HUF 1.2 billion to paint new road surface markings and HUF 1 billion on other improvements, said company spokesman Norbert Sándor Pécsi. The company could also spend HUF 200m on a program to rebuild stop lights, he added. (MTI-Econews)
