Passenger rail service to re-start on branch lines

Rail passenger service will re-start on six branch lines shut down by the previous government from December 12, state secretary in charge of infrastructure at the National Development Ministry Pal Volner said on Tuesday.

Service will re-start on lines between Fehergyarmat and Zajta, Alsokocsord and Csenger, Abaujszanto and Hidasnemeti, Komlo and Godisa, Borgond and Sarbogard, and Almasfuzito and Esztergom, Mr Volner said.

The government earlier said it would open up the lines shut down to passenger service.

The previous government shut down the lines to rationalise the operation of state-owned railway company MAV. (MTI-Econews)
