A consortium of Főmterv and Ecoroad has won the tender to prepare the detailed feasibility study for building the Hungarian section of the Budapest-Belgrade high-speed line. The study will cost Forints 527m ($US 1.8m).

 

It is proposed to rebuild the 350km line with a 200 km/h operating speed, which would reduce journey times by half. The project is estimated to cost $US 3bn, with 85% of funding provided through Chinese investment.
