Chain Bridge renovations delayed after opposition files inadequate tender

After a more than six-month delay the opposition leadership of Budapest had still failed to conduct a tender with proper content on the bridge’s much needed upgrade.

 

Hungary’s Public Procurement Authority has rejected the tender documents of the renovation of Budapest’s landmark Chain Bridge, citing errors in their content.

According to Magyar Nemzet, the paper cited the municipal group of ruling Fidesz saying that after a more than six-month delay the opposition leadership of Budapest had still failed to conduct a tender with proper content on the bridge’s much needed upgrade.

The board of the Budapest public transport authority BKK approved tender documents for the project on July 24, the paper noted. The project would be financed by the Budapest municipality, a HUF 6 billion (EUR 17m) contribution by the central government and loans.
