A new bridge in Hungary could be named after the action film actor
Chuck Norris after officials left the naming to an internet vote.

Votes for the Chuck Norris Bridge have so far attracted 11 per cent, of the vote, organised by the Ministry for the Economy.

That puts it just ahead of naming the bridge after Hungarian humorist
Geza Hofi and three times more popular than naming it after state
founder Szent Istvan.

Votes can be cast until September 8 on
the website http://www.m0hid.gov.hu There are more that 500 nominations, as
well as names referring to delays, such as ‘It Will Never Happen
Bridge’.

A government committee will review the three
winning names, as well as other proposals put forward by local
governments, cartographers, linguists and others.

The bridge over the Danube is due to open in 2008.
