A concept regarding a
cross-border Austrian-Hungarian railway network and road infrastructure
development has been presented in Parndorf in Burgenland, the Austrian province
bordering on Hungary. The CrossBorder Rail development will be implemented
within the framework of a project worth EUR 12.7 million. Thanks to this,
journey times will be shortened, the safety of transport will improve, and the
stations on the cross-border railway line between Neusiedl am See, Pamhagen
(both Austria) and Fertõszentmiklós will be refurbished. Six new road transport
routes will also be built in the vicinity of the Austrian-Hungarian border.
According to Levente Magyar,
State Secretary for Economic Diplomacy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
Trade, they will shortly be a report on the progress of specific works on the
railway line between Neusiedl am See and Fertõszentmiklós, and the railway
links between Oberwart, Austria and Szombathely, Hungary as well as between
Jennersdorf, Austria and Szentgotthárd, Hungary are already in the preparatory
phase. They are also working on two motorway connections to be completed by
2022, at the latest: on the one hand, on the construction of the motorway
section leading from Sopron to Austria, and on the other, on the construction
of the Rábafüzes border connecting section (on the Hungarian side) of the
prospective M8 motorway.
“It is perhaps the most
important for those living in villages directly by the border that the
construction of six minor road connections may soon begin”, the State Secretary
