A consortium led by the Hungarian unit of Austrian construction company Swietelsky has won a tender to renovate and expand a broad-gauge railway network around Zahony, near Hungary's border with Ukraine, with a bid of HUF 14.6 billion, the National Infrastructure Development Company said on Wednesday.
The consortium members are Közgép Épitő- és Fémszerkezetgyártó and Szentesi Vasútépítő.
The tender is for the second part of a two-phase project. The first phase was completed in November 2010 and the second phase is to finish by December 2011.
Hungary aims to turn Zahony into a logistics hub for the entire region.
