A ferryboat link is planned to be established under an EU-funded project to serve as a new border crossing between Slovakia and Hungary within a couple of years, ministry officials of the 2 countries announced in Dunaradvany (Radvan nad Dunajom) on Thursday, May 16.

The ferry (serving cars, bicycles, and pedestrians) will connect Neszmely (Komarom-Esztergom county, Hungary) with Dunaradvany (Komarom-Nitra district, Slovakia). It will be used by ~600 cars per day.

The project includes building road connections, ferry buildings, parking places, and ramps on both sides.

The Hungarian foreign ministry’s deputy state secretary, Peter Kiss-Parciu, told a press conference that the governments of the two countries had agreed back in 2014 to increase the border crossing points' number. Currently, there are 33 crossing points along the 677-kilometre border with 6 new points planned by 2022, he added.

The cross-border project is expected to cost EUR 1.8 billion euros, 85% of which will be financed with EU funds. The rest will be co-funded from Slovak and Hungarian central coffers.
