Russian Railways and Hungarian state railway cooperate
Russian Railways and the Hungarian state railway have signed a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) that is aimed at increasing the efficiency of the existing rail networks in Russia and Hungary. The MoC also wants to raise the competitiveness of rail transport compared to other modes of transport.
The two rail service providers will also work together to ensure the effective interaction between the narrow 1,435 mm and broad-gauge 1,520 mm railway systems. Other priority areas singled out for cooperation include improving the operational safety of railway transport, minimising harmful effects on the environment and improving the tariff policy and information systems, as well as other issues.
