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

In 1963, a Government Decree ordained the preparation of an investment programme, the design documentation of which was finalised in 1966. The investment target outlined Újpest vasútállomás and Kispest Vörös Csillag Traktorgyár as terminals of the line. This investment programme was passed in 1968, and the construction started in June 1970, by sinking the shaft at Kun Béla tér.

Line alignment and station location have been modified in the course of engineering/design, and the line in its actual state - i.e. Kőbánya-Kispest - Újpest - was completed in 1990. Finalisation of this line is still not envisaged, consequently, no direct connection with the housing estate "Káposztásmegyer" and the railway station Szob and Fót, as well as with the northern depot are planned.
