Rail Transport

Last updated: 5 November 2017
Objectives outlined in the 1996 Transport Policy for railway transport development from 1995 to 2000 include the following: - Restructuring and renewal of railway organisation, increased safety, improvement in service quality and competitiveness, and capacity improvements. - Implementation of an investment programme for track maintenance. - Modernisation and upgrading of lines along EU transportation corridors to a 160 km/h limit. - Reorganisation of MAV (Hungarian National Railways); restoration of the organisations solvency. These objectives are considered by the government to be ambitious and difficult to reach given the time frame provided and the poor economic and financial situation of MAV.
Moreover, the related documents to this policy are: NATIONAL TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY and the III. Hungarian Energy Efficiency Action Plan.
