DURING THE LAST WEEKEND OF MARCH, BUSES WILL REPLACE METRO LINE M4 DUE TO TESTS REQUIRED FOR THE FINAL COMPLETION CERTIFICATE
On Saturday and Sunday 28 and 29 March 2015, Metro Line M4 will be out of service due to tests conducted by the transport authority, buses will replace M4 trains along the entire line, and the nos. 47 and 49 day trams will run twice as frequently as usual. Started in the middle of March along Metro Line M4, the special testing period with no train attendant intervention has come to its second stage.
As a surface-reinstatement part of the Metro Line M4 project, the construction of the new two-level junction on Budaörsi út has reached a new stage, and so, in order to commence building its diaphragm walls as soon as possible, the contractor has shifted the pedestrian overpass at Sasadi út by 20 metres in the direction of the city.

Concurrently, Szent Gellért tér station is running eighth in an on-going open international webpage vote, where the most beautiful metro stations are grouped.
LANES TO BE SHIFTED AND SPEED LIMITED IN THE ROAD SECTIONS CONCERNED
The construction of the new junction on Budaörsi út as a surface part of the Metro Line M4 Project has reached a new phase. After preparations begun in August 2014, the development continues with the construction of temporary lanes and major utility diversions as of 26 October. The construction goes on until December 2015, during this time, at peak hours, road traffic will be maintained in 2x3 lanes, but they will be shifted and narrowed, and speed limited to 50 kph.
THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NEW JUNCTION ON BUDAÖRSI ÚT BEGINS AS A SURFACE PART OF THE METRO LINE M4 PROJECT
Following over a decade of preparation, professional negotiations, design and real-estate settlement, the construction of a new, two-level junction on Budaőrsi út can commence. The work is part of the Metro Line M4 project, and will make reach easier to the Kelenföld intermodal junction and thus Metro Line M4. As a result of the development, public transport will have an advantage, and a new, accessible pedestrian and bicycle link will be established between Sasad, Őrmező and Etele tér. The construction budget is HUF 7.2 billion, and will be implemented in three phases by December 2015 according to plans. Though deviations are to be expected in several phases during the construction, vehicle traffic will be maintained in spite of the great volume of the works.
