Last stretch of Metro 3 reconstruction gets under way in May

Another three refurbished stations of Budapest's Metro 3 will open on May 14, the Budapest Public Transport Centre (BKK) said on Thursday.

Kalvin Square, Corvin, and Semmelweis Klinikak will reopen on the date.

Trains will run between Kobanya Kispest, its southern terminal, and central Kalvin ter, without stopping at Nagyvarad Square. Replacement buses will transport passengers between Kalvin ter and Goncz Arpad Varoskozpont, Tibor Radnai said.

The metro will not operate on weekday evenings and weekends to allow additional works to be carried out, he added.

Between June 18 and August 14, only the northern section of the line will be operational, between Ujpest-Kozpont and Goncz Arpad Varsokozpont, BKK said.

The line’s entire revamp is scheduled to end by March 2023.
