Renovation of the Chain Bridge and the tunnel under Buda Castle will begin next year, not in November as previously planned, city hall announced on Monday.
It said the Ft 22 billion project can be completed in two and half years.
The project cannot start before a public procurement tender process is completed and a contract with the winner has been signed.
