BKV withdraws metro line renovation tender
Budapest, November 28 (MTI) – Budapest public transport company BKV has withdrawn a tender for the renovation of the capital’s third metro, the latest issue of the Public Procurement Gazette shows.
Mayor István Tarlós said ten days earlier that the city’s public procurement manager had recommended invalidating the tender because all of the bids were well over the project budget. It also proposed launching a new procurement procedure.
Tarlós said at the time that the renovation could realistically start in June of next year.
