Similarly to the metro replacement services in the northern section, during the reconstruction works in progress at the southern part of the line - between Népliget – Kőbánya-Kispest stations - passengers can meet various metro replacement services previously organized with the usual frequency and schedule.
The replacement of metro line M3 requires a high degree of organization, a comprehensive transformation of surface transport. On the southern section, the track shutdown is complete, the stations and the tunnel have a spectacular change, since some of the cladding and track have been demolished.
Regardless of the fact that the middle section - between Nagyvárad tér – Lehel tér stations - modernization works has not yet completely begun, partial works, including insulation improvements, are already underway with the aim of upgrading the low-level downtown section as soon as possible. Night-time stop-pages are not enough to carry out these time-consuming jobs, so they remain to be done on weekends.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
