Between 2010 and 2014, the Hungarian bicycle path network has been expanded by more than 530 kilometres. The length of the Hungarian cycle route network is about 6,200 kilometres. In the period 2004 to 2012, there were a number of tenders providing financial resources for the construction of bicycle paths, including 4594 million HUF from domestic funds and 41,741 million HUF from EU funds. By the first six months of 2012, a total of 708.5 km of cycle routs were built using 19,542 million HUF. From EU funds, the construction of a single kilometre long bicycle path section cost an average of 34.8 million HUF, which increased to as high as 110 million HUF, which was publicly justified by costs related to strengthening the flood protection embankment. In 2005, the Ministry for National Development announced plans to construct a further 1000 to 1500 kms of bicycle routes by 2020, potentially increasing the proportion of cyclists in transportation from 19 per cent to 22 per cent. The number of bicycle accidents is quite high, without showing substantial change.
