The part of the Józsefváros square named after Pope John Paul II in the vicinity of the M4 metro station is renewed, and the public of the area took possession of it this morning. The large area handed over is really a park, with many trees having been newly planted in the square and the nearby Fiumei út.
With the progress of the surface reinstatement works at Baross tér connected to the construction of Metro Line M4, the statue of Gábor Baross has now been put in a central and worthy place again. Though the completion of these surface works are due in March 2014, the sand stone plinth of the statue was erected, and after putting up the side figures, the contractor has now placed the renewed statue of the former transport minister into its final place.
The Rákóczi tér station of metro line M4 is now the fourth station to have received its completion certificate from the National Transport Authority. Apart from the completion of on-going construction works and white tests, obtaining the necessary permits for the new metro line is a precondition of starting the Test in Traffic Operation of Metro Line M4 at the end of March, the deadline undertaken.
Another surface refurbishment project has been completed in the Metro Line M4 Project.
The surface reinstatement works of the Rákóczi tér station of Metro Line M4 have been completed, and now, after the handing-over procedure, the public of the district and city can take possession of it again. Parallel to the completion of the fit-out and the system construction works and the test operation of the new line without passengers down below, the surface works will soon come to an end, as well. By March 2014, all work phases will have to be completed at every worksite except for the Kelenföld junction, though, naturally, its exit structure and its immediate surroundings will also be finished.
BKK as the road maintenance provider of the Budapest Municipality has completed the renewal of one of the worst-condition, cobble-stone main throughways of Budapest. On 30 November 2013, the road, Thököly út, will thus be handed over to vehicle traffic between Baross tér and Dózsa György út. Following handing-over, the order of traffic will also change for motorcars, buses and cyclists; a bus lane will be in the middle, and bicycle lanes have also been made. The terminus of the no. 178 bus has been moved to the junction of Thököly út and Verseny utca, and the stops for other buses are returned to their original places.
The National Transport Authority has issued the completion certificate for the third station of Metro Line M4, Szent Gellért tér; the Test in Traffic Operation can thus begin at the end of March next year. Obtaining the completion certificates is smooth thanks to the cooperation between the mayor, the government commissioner, the authority, DBR Metro Project Directorate and the contractors concerned.
