December developments in the southern section
As the year draws to a close, we will once again present a summary of the month with a detailed picture gallery and video compilation.
After the start of traffic on the left track on November 16, and the successful switchover, professionals immediately began to dismantle the right track, what process is no different from the previous work.
Demolition processes at stations has been completed, construction work is nearing completion, basic mechanical and electrical installations are underway and the new equipments are being installed. In the tunnel sections, utilities and wiring will be replaced and the ventilation system will be upgraded.
We have previously reported on the works of the Kőbánya-Kispest metro station detour area; since then, most of the ground-leveling and track construction tasks have been completed. At Határ út and Népliget metro stations, the shaft and steel structure of the future elevators took a spectacular shape.
A renovation is always a nuisance, especially when it comes to such a major project, and so we are grateful for the patience and cooperation of the travelling public and those affected!
