A projekt az Európai Unió támogatásával, a Kohéziós Alap társfinanszírozásával valósul meg.


11 october 2013

The construction of Metro Line 4 has come to its last phase: white tests, that is testing without passengers, have begun on the entire line. Siemens, the manufacturer of the signalling equipment, is carrying out white tests until November, then the future operator, BKV, will follow with these tests, and finally the Authority will commence its own white tests from January, in order to ensure that all elements of the trains and the line function without failure, are safe and can be opened to the travelling public.

The handing-over procedures of the stations have also commenced allong Metro Line M4. After a successful procedure at Bikás park (Tétényi út), as the fit-out and systems-deployment works are completed, DBR Metro Project Directorate will hand all the stations of the line over to BKV Zrt., the future operator. Parallel, the completion certification procedures are also underway.

The white tests, the passengerless testing, just begun by Siemens are one of the most important elements in the Project, because these tests will demonstrate whether the various elements of the project provided by different manufacturers and contractors can function in a coordinate and safe way. The success of these white tests is the precondition for the Test in Traffic Operation to begin at the end of March 2014, as undertaken. Though the trains will have attendants in the first year or year and half, i.e. during the Test in Traffic Operation, the M4 trains will run in driverless mode, and many of the tests currently conducted take place in automatic mode.
