Government increases budget for infrastructure repairs

Prime Minister Petr Nečas announced on Wednesday that the government will increase the emergency budget for post-flooding transportation infrastructure repairs by two billion crowns. The government had already released 1.3 billion crowns from the infrastructure fund on Monday. As a result of flooding, fallen trees and landslides, 93 roads and around seven railroads in Bohemia are still closed. No estimates have been released for total damages to transportation infrastructure.
