Hungary and Slovakia seal their growing partnership with two new bridges linking the countries

A statement confirmed that implementation of the bridge projects will be financed from the 2014-2020 Interreg Slovakia-Hungary Cooperation Program’s budget

Hungary and Slovakia are to seal their ever growing partnership with two new bridges linking the countries.

According to MTI, representatives from Hungary and Slovakia signed an agreement in Bratislava on Tuesday to construct two new bridges, one across a branch of the River Danube and the other spanning the River Ipoly.

The innovation and technology ministry confirmed that the Danube branch bridge, to be built at Dunakiliti in north-western Hungary, will serve cyclists and pedestrians, while the other bridge at Őrhalom will replace an old wooden structure and enable cars to drive across the Ipoly.

A statement confirmed that implementation of the bridge projects will be financed from the 2014-2020 Interreg Slovakia-Hungary Cooperation Program’s budget. The agreement was signed by Hungary’s State Secretary László Mosoczi and Slovak Transport and Construction Minister Árpád Érsek.
