HUNGARY: Infrastructure development agency NIF has awarded Thales Austria a contract to design and supply ETCS Level 2 for the 101 km Boba - Bajánsenye section of Pan-European Corridor V, and adapt existing Level 1 equipment.

The EU is meeting 85% of the €18m cost of the project, which will enable maximum speeds on the route to be increased by 20 km/h to between 160 km/h and 200 km/h.
