Hungary signs declaration of support for European rail axis

Hungary has signed a political declaration together with Bulgaria, Greece, and Romania on support for development of rail lines from Hungary's border with Austria to Athens and to Constanta, National Development Ministry state secretary Pál Völner said in Brussels late Thursday.

The declaration lists the main lines of the stretch of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) running from Hegyeshalom, on Hungary's border with Austria, to Budapest, then to Arad, in Romania, where branches go to Constanta via Bucharest and to Athens via Sofia. The document also indentifies rail freight and passenger developments

Representatives from each of the signing countries' transport ministries as well as the operators of the rail lines will meet regularly to review the progress of the developments, Völner said. (MTI-ECONEWS)
