Mott MacDonald wins ISPA contract to develop and upgrade trans-European network lines in Hungary

Mott MacDonald, as part of a consortium with Deutsche Eisenbahn-Consulting, Louis Berger and BAU ING 2000, led by FÕMTERV Civil Engineering Consultants has been appointed by the Hungarian State Railways Company to help improve the standard of existing rail infrastructure and upgrade a key 31 km section of the trans-European network lines in Hungary.

The part ISPA-funded €60 million project will help Hungary meet accession requirements and involves the reconstruction of two stations, reconstruction and rehabilitation of track, earthworks, drainage, structures, bridges, electrification system and the implementation of a new signalling and telecommunication system between Szajol and Mezõtúr stations.

Mott MacDonald’s role will involve providing electrification system services including a field appraisal of the existing infrastructure, traction power supply, signal power supplies, points heating, outdoor lighting and overhead line electrification design.

“The Szajol-Mezõtúr project is the first ISPA financed section of the Szolnok – Lökösháza railway line and a key part of the Budapest to Romania trans-European network railway corridor and will improve a vital transport link as well as helping Hungary to reach the EU infrastructure standards of accession” says Mott MacDonald’s project manager, Stephen Leonard.

The project will be completed towards the end of 2005.


Note to editors
1. Instrument for Structural Policies for Pre- Accession (ISPA) is one of three financial instruments the European Union is using to assist candidate countries in preparing for accession. Over the period from 2000 to 2006, a total of EUR 1 040 million a year (at 1999 prices) will be made available for infrastructure projects in the field of environment and transport.
Its main priorities in preparing the applicant countries for accession will be:
•Familiarising them with the policies and procedures of the Union
•Helping them catch up with EU environmental standards
•Expanding and linking with the trans-European transport networks
