One of Budapest’s traffic intersections getting reshaped

A study was published recently on BKK’s website about the reconstruction of H8 in Gödöllő. This document also mentions the possibility of connecting it to Metro 2. The study states that Metro 2 and HÉV H8 could be connected at Örs vezér Square. The further path of the latter one could also be diverted to a new track. The authors justify their ideas by the competitivity of public transportation, as well as current social and economic progresses.

By these improvements, they promise a shorter travelling time for 40,000 passengers. As BKK’s website mentions, these novelties could also improve the quality of travelling. According to the plans, these new lines would make public transport between the surrounding territories and the inner areas of Budapest compete even with travelling by car. To achieve this, they are constructing P+R and B+R parking lots, they are creating barrier-free areas, and they also promise new vehicles and a higher quality of informing passengers. They are also planning to redesign bus and trolley bus network in the capital.
