A new cycle bridge is to be built over the Danube’s old riverbed 30 km downstream from Bratislava, connecting the Slovak village of Dobrohošť (Trnava region) with the Hungarian village of Dunakiliti, according to an inter-governmental agreement okayed by the Slovak Cabinet on February 14th.

The bridge for pedestrians and cyclists will contribute towards the development of tourism and to free movement of people for the purposes of work or leisure-time activities and to the economic and social development of the cross-border localities concerned. It will also enable access to the Moson branches of the Danube on the Hungarian side. In Slovakia, the European corridor for bicycles along the river will be built, informed Slovak Transport Minister Arpád Érsek after the cabinet session as cited by the SITA newswire.

Both countries will bear the cost of the bridge construction equally and the costs of related objects on their territories. The projected costs on the side of Slovakia in the years 2019 and 2020 total almost €5 million. The investor will be Vodohospodárska Výstavba.
