The chief contractors build motorways in Hungary for unjustified high prices, said experts to Magyar Nemzet. As it is known, the M3, M7 and M70 motorway sections in a total of 60 km length will be built for HUF 128 billion though before the tender the same contractors made a HUF 109,5 billion bid for the same work. The Economic Competition Bureau examines the suspicion of forming a cartel on the part of the contractors though the National Motorway Company finds the HUF 18,5 billion acceptable. During the Horn-era the multinational companies did the same: they divided the market and set the prices as they wished.
