Budapest Socialists call for expansion of metro line 4
The planned 6km expansion of the belt railway in the outer 14th district originally had a 340 billion forint (EUR 821.4m) price tag, and has recently been bumped up by a further 5 billion, Csaba Horvath said. The project is “overpriced tenfold”, he said.
The same resources could be used to lengthen metro line 4 beyond Keleti railway station to Bosnyak Square or further into the 14th district, Horvath said. A recent survey in the district showed that 44 percent of motorists there would use the line daily if it were extended to Bosnyak Square, he said. Motivating tens of thousands of people to use the metro rather than cars would solve many problems of the suburb, he added.
