Significant infrastructure and cityscape improvements have been implemented in Tiszafüred during the last 5 years, with yet more planned for 2020.

The total investment amount of two projects is HUF 900 million gross, but with the construction of a new clinic and market hall nearing completion, the reconstruction of the whole downtown will cost approximately HUF 1.3 billion.

Imre Ujvári, the Mayor of Tiszafüred spoke at the ceremonial laying of the foundation stone, also in attendance was Sándor F. Kovács, MP for the region and Péter Szijjártó, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Affairs.

Imre Ujvári had previously spoken about the investments. “The change is spectacular, it speaks for itself, public institutions have been renewed”. He is particularly proud that as a result of serious efforts, three businesses are creating jobs in the city, as the mayor explained.

“It is also indicative of economic progress that the city has a steady increase in tourism tax revenue. The number of overnight stays has increased by forty per cent in four years and the number of overnight stays in the city has also increased significantly. This has a positive impact on several sectors”.

The Gabor Benedek Sports Hall and the new outdoor basketball courts, and a fitness park was built. The condition of the city road network has hugely improved.

The Kovács Pál Cultural Center, the Town Hall and the Kuthy Elek Health Center were also modernized. 

A new market hall and medical office are nearing completion and the renovation of the museum’s buildings is underway. 

The chaotic downtown traffic situation has now been resolved and the new main square will be created. In addition, the open beach will be completely rebuilt.
