Hungary’s public road maintenance company Magyar Közút plans to revamp over 1,000km of roads by the end of this year. A comprehensive revamp of some 523km of mostly secondary roads has already been completed and work is underway on another 492km. The projects involve not only replacing the road surface but also strengthening or rebuilding the foundation layers where necessary, tidying up roadside ditches and water furrows and renewing road markers and signs where necessary. The company has drawn a central budget and European Union funding for the work.
