Construction of Budapest-Balaton cycle path under way

Construction of a new cycle path connecting Hungary's major tourist hotspots, Budapest and Lake Balaton, is under way, the Ministry of Innovation and Technology (ITM) said on Friday.

Almost every section of path from the capital to Balatonakarattya, on the northern tip of the lake, is being carried out this year, the ministry said in a post on social media, adding that the path, with the exception of the Biatorbagy and Szekesfehervar crossings, is expected to be completed by next summer.

The ministry is providing 13.5 billion forints (EUR 38m) in support to build the 108km path, which will pass through the Etyek wine region as well as the area around Lake Velence and the city of Szekesfehervar.
