Slovakia approves new Ipoly bridge

On Wednesday, Slovak authorities approved plans for a new bridge over the Ipoly River between Őrhalom, Hungary and Vrbovka, Slovakia.

Only vehicles weighing less than 3.5 tons, cyclists and pedestrians will be able to use the bridge.

The new span will bring the two regions closer, as locals may cross it every day for work or leisure, Slovak Transport Minister Árpád Érsek commented.

The new construction will replace the existing wooden bridge.
