Work starts on Miskolc-Kosice link

Work on the 57km Hungarian section of a planned Miskolc-Kosice motorway M30 began on Monday.

Slovakia has already completed its section of the roadway linking Kosice to the border crossing at Tornyosnémeti.

The work has been divided into three phases, to be completed by three different consortiums.

The Miskolc-Szikszó section will be built by a consortium led by Strabag, the Szikszó-Encs section by a Colas consortium, and the Encs-Tornyosnémeti roadway by a consortium of Hódút and Duna Aszfalt.

The Ft 179.3 billion cost will be financed from EU funds and the central budget.

The M30 will probably be opened in 2021.
