Impacts on the road transport


Based on a completed transport study, the construction of Metro 4 can be assessed in the following manner.

Metro construction will result in about 8000 less individual car travels in the peak hours in the morning. This is equivalent to about 90,000 to 100,000 less individual car travels in the Capital City during an entire day.

Upon putting the new metro line into operation, traffic conditions will be much improved in the area. In the majority of the investigated sections a decrease in road traffic can be forecast.

The most considerable reduction of road traffic can be expected on the following routes:

  • Villányi út ((~200 unit vehicles/h)
  • First section of Bartók Béla út (~250 unit vehicles /h)
  • Egérút (~240 unit vehicles /h)
  • Tétényi út (~350 unit vehicles /h)
  • Etele út (~ 180 unit vehicles /h)
  • Hengermalom út (~260 unit vehicles /h)
  • Szerémi út (~250 unit vehicles /h)
  • Lágymányosi híd (~150 unit vehicles /h)
  • Petőfi híd (~130 unit vehicles /h)
  • Szabadság-híd (~250 unit vehicles /h)
  • Erzsébet-híd (~200 unit vehicles /h)
  • Kossuth Lajos utca - Rákóczi út (~300 unit vehicles /h)


Thus, metro operation will diminish the transport overload of the area along Danube embankment, a part of the World Heritage, assisting in the environmental restoration of this very sensitive area.

Road transport will only increase to a certain extent in the sections where new public transport connections appear. Such increase can be expected in the following sections:

  • Fehérvári út (~100 unit vehicles /h)
  • Bartók Béla út külső szakasza (~120 unit vehicles /h)
  • Bogdánfy út (~120 unit vehicles /h)


The increase of the road traffic will result from the P+R parking lot to be implemented on the rmez side of the Kelenfldi pu., specifically, along road sections of quite low traffic leading to the parking lot. Additional traffic resulting from the use of P+R lot, as well as their harmful environmental effects, will definitely be compensated by traffic reductions on other network sections and the resulting lower environmental loads.
