Transit zone for migrants opens at Nyugati railway station
Budapest, August 14 (MTI) – A transit zone available to migrants opened at Budapest’s Nyugati railway station on Friday morning, the metropolitan council’s law enforcement department said.
The first such facility was opened at the Keleti railway station on Saturday, followed by a second one at the Deli station on Wednesday. They are equipped with mobile drinking wells, showers and restrooms.
Gyorgy Peto, the municipal council’s chief law enforcement officer, said last Wednesday that three special zones would be set up to provide basic sanitary and hygiene services to migrants.
The Budapest public transport company has made available two unused articulated buses to offer a transfer service between the train stations to migrants.
