Bridge to be closed for cars on four weekends

Szabadság híd will be closed for traffic again for four weekends in the summer to let pedestrians take the entire bridge and picnic there if they wish, deputy mayor Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

She said the project was launched in 2016 as a grassroots initiative. The four weekends will fall between July 14 and August 5.
