The government would prefer to take over development projects towards which the City Council has requested 55 billion HUF from the state. The plan was revealed as yesterday's sitting of the Budapest Public Works Council. The projects in question include the Biodome and the funicular planner for Gellért Hill. An agreement is yet to be reached regarding these plans. However, the government is already set to take over the development of the H2 suburban railway line to Gödöllő, and its connection to the M3 metro. The extension of the Buda tram network on Műegyetem Embankment is also to be funded by the state. The government has also blocked the city's plans to take a loan from the European Development Bank and the introduction of the so-called restart tax. The 6 billion HUF needed for the renovation of Chain Bridge will be transferred to the city when all other funds required for the project have been secured.
