Metro reconstruction in the city center – Blue Trail underground
The area of metro line M3 under reconstruction is currently walkable through the tunnel for about six kilometers. In the side tracks area of Nagyvárad tér and Lehel tér, beyond the fence, the outlines of the trains can be seen, and in the intermediate section, the tracks of the seven stations to be transformed and the left-side tracks are missing in some places can be observed as well. We walked along the deep-core line section through the tunnel and climbed the steep ladders at each station to walk around the passenger and service areas to see the changes.
In short, there is nothing reminiscent of the original states. The stations are being demolished, huge parts of escalators are being found in fewer and fewer places, temporary lighting is provided almost everywhere, the rooms are being transformed, and in some places new equipment has already replaced old structures. Asbestos removal is slowly being completed.
