A secure HGV park with 150 spaces will be built next to the M1 motorway, the most important transit route through Hungary. The facility will be equipped with a hotel for lorry drivers.
The investment, which will be built on an area of almost six hectares, will be accessible from both sides of the highway. Construction will start in April 2023, and the handover of the first phase of the facility is expected in January 2024.
The plans include a hotel for lorry drivers and a restaurant, and the facility would provide an opportunity to test the parking system for self-driving lorries.
The truck stop will be able to provide appropriate parking space for valuable loads and separate dangerous goods from the rest of the vehicles.
To provide safety, the facility will be equipped with a fence, permanent security service and video surveillance.
Depending on the success of further tenders, Hungary’s first public hydrogen filling station, which could be used by cars and HGVs, would be set up here, and 17 350-kilowatt ultra-fast charging stations for electric lorries and cars would be installed.
Tatabánya Parking, the operator and constructor of the truck park, received fifty per cent non-refundable direct EU support for the three billion HUF investment.
