Opening of the EU-funded cross-border bridge connecting Hungary and Slovakia

Dear border friends,

The new Monoštor bridge connecting Komárom (Hungary) and Komárno (Slovakia) was officially opened on 17 September 2020 for traffic. Although not funded by Interreg, it still improves also the cross-border mobility in that region.  The new road connection, which improves both road transport and inland navigation on the Danube, was supported with €100 million of EU funding through the Connecting Europe Facility (85% of the total costs).

Commissioner for Transport Adina Vălean said: "Transport is about connecting people. This bridge does not only better connect the two cities, but it also has a strong European dimension as it will remove a crucial transport bottleneck on the trans-European Rhine Danube Corridor. It benefits both heavy goods vehicles needing to cross the river and vessels circulating on the Danube."
