Ft 1.6bn more for bicycle paths

City Hall has laid aside another Ft 800 million from its budget for cycling development projects, to which the state will add another Ft 800 million, mayor István Tarlós announced at a press briefing on Monday.

The Ft 1.6 billion will be used for the first phase of developing the EuroVelo international cycling lanes in Hungary.

Máriusz Révész, government commissioner for an active Hungary, said it is good for car drivers if more people cycle as there will be fewer traffic jams.
