EIB supports the rehabilitation of railway infrastructure in Hungary with EUR 250 million loan

  •  Release date: 08 January 2014
  •  Reference: 2014-001-EN

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is lending EUR 250 million to finance the implementation of Hungary’s railway infrastructure rehabilitation and upgrading investment programme for the period 2013-2016. The objective is to improve the safety, capacity and performance of the existing conventional railway infrastructure with positive impacts on commuters and long-distance travellers as well as on freight traffic.

The EIB loan will help the Hungarian railways to become more competitive and attractive in comparison will less environmentally friendly modes of transport such as by road. The project comprises various schemes located across the whole country, particularly involving the improvement of tracks, signalling, telecommunications and bridges, as well as the modernisation of stations and passenger buildings, including increasing their accessibility for people with reduced mobility.

Upgrading Hungary’s transport infrastructure and rolling stock, particularly the railway network, is one of the EIB’s lending priorities. EIB loans granted to the Hungarian transport sector since the start of the Bank’s operations in Hungary in 1990 amount to some EUR 4.2 billion, representing 25% of the total EIB lending commitment in the country.
