New Stretch of Budapest-Balaton Cycle Path Completed to Reach Lake Velence
A new, 32.6km stretch of the Budapest-Balaton bicycle path was completed, with the bike route now reaching Lake Velence, the National Infrastructure Developer said on Wednesday.

The first stretch between Budapest and Etyek was opened to traffic in June.

The investment involved paving 18km of existing farm roads, to be used jointly by farm vehicles and cyclists.

A new bridge was build across the Bágyom creek near Pázmánd. Other roads were reconstructed and bike lanes painted.

A new 1.9km bike path was built between Nadap and Velence. The investment cost 2.7 billion forints (EUR 6.7m).
