Security cameras

Last Friday the new security camera system of Fehérvár was inaugurated, consisting of 25 cameras on the most crowded places of the city. These cameras are capable of night vision and will observe the city 24 hours a day, the observers having direct contact with the police. The cameras are expected to bring a 60-65% decrease in crimes in the observed area.
All the IT technology of the city (szekesfehervar.hu servers, camera observation computers etc.) will soon be moved to one central IT complex of the city.
The camera system works well: even during the trial period the police have busted criminals using it.

Közélet - 2008. 06. 27.
Reszkessetek betörők - éjszaka is lát Székesfehérvár új térfigyelő rendszere
Pénteken délután adták át az Önkormányzat Informatikai Központ Kht. új Honvéd utcai telephelyén a város új 25 kamerából álló térfigyelő rendszerét. A kamerák képeit rendőrök figyelik a nap 24 órájában és már a tesztidőszak alatt is sikerült bűncselekményt megakadályozni a rendszer segítségével.

A város önkormányzata még tavaly döntötte el, hogy folytatja a térfigyelő kamerák telepítését Székesfehérváron. Most olyan kamerarendszert adtak át, mely éjszaka is tökéletes képet biztosít a rendőröknek. A tapasztalatok azt mutatják, hogy a térfigyelők körzetében 60-65 százalékkal csökken az elkövetett bűncselekmények száma -emelte ki az új központ és a térfigyelő rendszer átadásán a város polgármestere Warvasovszky Tihamér.

Az Önkormányzat Informatikai Központjának telephelyén figyelik a rendőrök folyamatosan a kamerák képeit. A Honvéd utcai új központban kapnak helyet hamarosan a város által működtetett szerverek is, így ez lesz a központja a www.szekesfehervar.hu portálnak. Erre egy külön beléptető rendszerrel ellátott biztonságos szerverhelységet alakítottak ki. Az önkormányzat által négy éve létrehozott kht végzi a város informatikai rendszerének fenntartását.

Meretei Péter az ÖIK ügyvezetője elmondta, hogy a most átadott központ ban biztosítható az a mags szintű műszaki háttér, mely megfelel a kor támasztotta követelményeknek. A térfigyelő kamerarendszer jól vizsgázott az elmúlt hetekben végzett tesztek alatt, így most már élesben lehet lefülelni a forgalmasabb helyeken tevékenykedő tolvajokat és garázdákat, ugyanis a figyelők folyamatos kapcsolatban vannak a rendőrség ügyeletével.

Renovation of the Székesfehérvár-Budapest railway line

This is no big news for those who frequently visit the Hungarian SSC forums, especially the one on Railway Infrastructure, but the renovation of the Székesfehérvár-Budapest railway line is one of the major EU money projects approved recently.
The line totally needs the reconstruction as it's currently one of the worst mainlines in the country. Budapest is about 70 kms away, and this ride takes almost one and half an hour for a regional train that stops at every station and slightly more than 1 hour for the IC - not competitive in comparison to the highway bus lines. However, after the full-160 km/h renovation of this line 45 minutes is promised for the regional trains and about half an hour for the IC. This is very important to the city because it brings Fehérvár almost into the Budapest suburban area. Also, it can bring investment in the city because with such short travel times it might be reasonable to let's say build an office complex in Fehérvár instead of the outskirts of Budapest: land is cheaper here and the trip to the city center wouldn't take so much longer.

Korszerűsítik a Budapest-Székesfehérvár vasútvonalat
A kormány az autópályák után egyre inkább az alacsonyabb rendű utakra és a vasúti fejlesztésekre helyezi a hangsúlyt- hangzott el az M7-es autópálya legújabb szakaszának tegnapi avatásán. 550 milliárd forintot szánnak 390 kilométer vágány korszerűsítésre valamint 580 kilométer hosszúságban biztonsági fejlesztésre.

Ezek közé tartozik a Záhony térségében induló fejlesztés, a Budapest és Székesfehérvár közötti vonal korszerűsítése, a Bajánsenye és Boba közötti vonal átépítése, a Budapest és Pusztaszabolcs, valamint a Dombóvár-Kaposvár közötti pálya korszerűsítése és a főváros térségi elővárosi projektek.

Good for Fehervar! The picture of the cams look really satisfying.

Since I like showing-off the security cam system of my district, we've got 114 cams in operation over here in Nyocker and I guess there are even more as I hang around and see them all around in the streets. There are almost no invisible zones left now.

More digitalized security camera system in District 8, Budapest:

I know about this and I agree that the 'infamous' 8th district is one of the safest places in Budapest. I know many people who live there and they say they never had any problem in the area. This is largely thanks to the camera system. I think the 8th district is a very good example of how to make a 'bad' place very safe using technology. Many Western European and American metropolises could learn

Public transport company Alba Volán has released a Google Maps-powered travel planner, which enables planning trips with the bus lines, info for bus stops is accessible and lines are displayed on the map. It looks like this:



Alba Volán is probably the most retarded Volán company of all, its level of retardation borders that of MÁV I'm surprised that they made this innovation but I think this is only the first step because the city council has kicked some serious ass lately lately in this company, they want them to provide a better public transport. The whole system is being re-organized, I already posted about the bus tender (there is also a test Mercedes Connecto running in the city at the moment), so I think in 1-2 years Fehérvár can have a better public transport system instead of the current, pretty lousy one.

Questionable costs of commieblock reconstructions?

It has been argued lately that the accepted tenders of the newest 85 commieblock renovations (scheduled to begin this year) contained costs up to 30% higher than the best available on the market. Certain individual houses want to have their own external company do the job because they don't trust that the companies that won the tender of the city council have the best price. The Monetary Committee of the city suggests an investigation to this case.

http://www.szekesfehervar.hu/index.php?pg=news_46765

Vizsgálatot sürgetnek a dráguló panelfelújítások miatt
Átfogó vizsgálatot sürget a panelfelújítások kapcsán a pénzügyi bizottság elnöke. Égi Tamás elmondta, a felújításban résztvevő házak közös képviselői közül többen jelezték, hogy a közbeszerzést elnyerő ajánlat nagyságrenddel meghaladta az előzetes árkalkulációt, sőt az egy lakásra korábban kapott ár is jobb, mint a nagy megrendelésre elnyert összeg.

Égi Tamás, a pénzügyi bizottság elnöke elmondta, nagy meglepetésre a város cége, a Széphő Zrt. már a pályázat előminősítő szakaszában kiesett, mivel nem tudta teljesíteni azokat a feltételeket, amiket a Széphő segítségével dolgoztak ki. A pályázaton a Széphő egy holdinggal közösen indult, melynek két másik vállalata simán vette az első fordulót. A pénzügyi bizottság vizsgálatot kért, amely megállapította, hogy a nem voltak valósak a holding által adott referenciák, ezért nem jutott tovább a Széphő. Égi Tamás bizottsági elnök „érdekesnek” nevezte, hogy holding két másik vállalata mindenben megfelelt a pályázaton.

A pályázat második fordulójában állva maradt cégek a 85 ház munkáit egymás közt felosztva adtak be pályázatot, volt azonban egy cég – az említett holding egyik vállalata – amely mind a 85 házra adott ajánlatot. Ennek összege többszáz millió forinttal volt alacsonyabb, mint a többi pályázó összesített ajánlata. Döntés előtt azonban - a bizottság elnöke szerint – valahonnan megtudták, hogy „nincs szükség az olcsóbb ajánlatra” , így visszavonták azt.

Ezek után a közgyűlés nem szavazta meg a pályázat kihirdetését. Égi Tamás bizottsági elnök szerint a nemmel szavazók is támogatták a panelprogramot, de nem voltak meggyőződve arról, hogy a legjobb ajánlatok nyertek. A képviselőket úgy tájékoztatta a városvezetés, hogy idő hiányában a mostani eredményt hirdetik ki, miután nem akarják megkockáztatni, hogy elveszítsék a támogatásokat. A rendkívüli közgyűlésen azután egyhangúan megszavazták a pályázat nyerteseit.

A pénzügyi bizottság elnöke a múlt héten megjelent újságcikkekre hivatkozva elmondta, legalább 30%-al magasabb árat kénytelenek fizetni a társasházak. Égi Tamás elmondta, továbbra is várja a bizottság annak vizsgálatát, hogy mekkora kár érte a Magyar Államot, Székesfehérvár Megyei Jogú Város Önkormányzatát és a fehérvári társasházakat.

This older article is connected to the previous one. A block in the Almássy Housing Project hasn't accepted the 55 million forints (200000 euros) costs of the renovation of heating and electric systems as it was suggested by the company winning the city council tender, because they have found a company that would do the job for 33 million.
It is possible to choose another company but they have to do this before signing the renovation contract.

Panelfelújítás - a lakók a saját maguk által kért olcsóbb ajánlatot választják az Almássyn

Az Almássy lakótelep 11-14-es társasház felújításáról tartott szerdán sajtótájékoztatót a városrész önkormányzati képviselője. Orosz István elmondta, hogy a lakók a fűtés és elektromos hálózat korszerűsítésre maguk is kértek árajánlatot, ami jóval kedvezőbb mint az önkormányzat közbeszerzési eljárása során kiválasztott ajánlat. Szigli István a Városfejlesztési Bizottság elnöke elmondta, ha a lakók nem fogadják el az összeget, írásban kérhetik, hogy vegyék ki társasházukat az eljárásból, és akár önmaguk is meghirdethetik majd a közbeszerzést.

Az Almássy lakótelep 11-14-es társasháza is részt vesz a fehérvári panelprogramban. A hőszigetelés már elkészült, a lakók most a fűtés és az elektromos rendszer felújítását tűzték ki célul. Orosz István a terület önkormányzati képviselője kiemelte, hogy a város önkormányzata által kiírt közbeszerzési eljárás eredményeként a munkákat 55 millió forintból végeznék el a nyertes vállalkozó, a társasház lakói azonban egy jóval olcsóbb, 35 millió forintos ajánlatot is kaptak. A lakóknak 361 ezer forinttal kerülne többe a felújítás, ezt azonban nem tudják és nem is akarják kifizetni – hangsúlyozta a képviselő.

Szigli István a Városfejlesztési Bizottság elnöke elmondta, hogy az önkormányzat a lakók által bekért ajánlatok műszaki tartalma alapján hirdette meg korábban a közbeszerzési eljárást. Ha a lakók nem fogadják el a nyertes kivitelező által adott bekerülési költséget, írásban kérhetik, hogy vegyék ki a társasházukat az eljárásból és akár önmaguk is meghirdethetik a közbeszerzést – tette hozzá Szigli István. Hangsúlyozta, hogy ezt a szerződés megkötése előtt kell megtenniük a lakóknak ellenkező esetben ugyanis elvesztik a támogatást.

New buses sighted in Székesfehérvár

Our transport company, Alba Volán doesn't make a big fuss about buying new rolling stock (=no announcements at all). But the bus addicts of index.hu didn't fail to notice some new Volvo solo buses. The index.hu forum is not as well organized as SSC and there are no official announcements either so I can't tell how many buses exactly have arrived, whence and for how much money, but the index forum is quite excited, insiders seem to know that these are only the tip of the iceberg. It also seems pretty sure that these buses are the first results of our recently evaluated bus tender (the complete reorganization of the Székesfehérvár public transport system is on the way).

Photos by Ikarusbarát from forum.index.hu, thanks for sharing!

No, but as there were tenders for a number of buses between 18 and 42, and these are the first so 'tendered' buses, it's feasible that Fehérvár will replace all its Ikaruses. There are about 25 articulated Ikaruses (and 12 Mercedes Conectos, this is the articulated fleet of the city) still running in the city, they should be replaced soon. With these new solo buses I don't think there are any solo Ikaruses left in the city. Since the purchase of the 12 used DAB buses from Denmark they were a rare sight anyway.

Yesterday I visisted the city.
The train station is very bad state, but the waiting hall is very nice. I haven't any information of the renovation. What will change?
The pedestrian overway on Palotai steet looks very good.
I saw first time the shopping centers. In plaza were many poeple but on the other side just some shoopes were in Tesco. But I saw that the shops in downtown still alive that. It's true or have they problems?
What will built between the Tesco and the Palota Shopping Centre?
The new bus terminal looks good, mainly the pedestrian surface and the waiting hall, but I think it would be better if the full terminus have a roof.

The train station building has received a minor renovation a few years back, hence the nice waiting hall The tracks are in a really terrible condition, there is a 20 km/h limit inside the station. The renovation of the Székesfehérvár-Budapest mainline has just been approved as one of the major EU projects. Actually it should have begun this year but it definitely won't. Perhaps in 2009, all I hear is that they want to speed up these projects.
Fehérvár doesn't have a particularly 'alive' midtown I guess. Most shops are highly specialized and I think they must make a decent profit, but they would do better without the Pláza being so close, so they complain a lot... but it's this way in every capitalistic country. But consider that the Fehérvár downtown is before huge maintenance works, including the repavement of the main street and most sidestreets, renovation of all city-owned buildings and of course the 2.5 billion-costing National Memorial. With all this completed the midtown will be a much more attractive place, and all this will happen in the next 1-2 years.
The area between the Fehér Palota (it's more than a Tesco actually) and the shopping centre has been recently sold by the city for more than 5 billion forints. Little is know however about the new owner and the plans. It will definitely be a multi-functional retail/office/recreation centre, but I haven't seen any visualizations. Actually it seems to be a little late, that area has been dead water for several months now.
The new bus terminal was seriously debated because of the lack of roofs you mentioned. Problems is that not only the city preservation committe or some stupid organization like this didn't allow the construction of further roofs, but there are main pipelines below that spot which didn't allow for deep basements. The tried to fix it with light roofs but it's just a half-solution. We must console ourselves with the main building which is really awesome

How do visitors of the city approach the city centre from the railway station? No matter which way you go, you must pass through the only - actually quite small - area of the city which is considered a bad neighborhood. Especially if you go towards the 'Széchenyi', it sure as hell cannot be a positive first impression

I walked. I hadn't any map, but I know where is the downtown approximately. First I wlaked along the Széchenyi and I saw some beautiful buildings. But every city has buidings like that so I didn't surprise. But the 6 lane road next to the bus terminal is horrible I think. It would be better built some green traffic island. After I walked throw the downtown. I saw the ruins of the temple without roof. Last time I was in Fehérvár it still had it. Finalyy I walked back to the train station and travelled to Pusztaszabolcs. It was my first impression in that rail line. The track is quite godd between Fehérvár and Börgönd but after... Than I went home by fast train to Érd felső.

Székesfehérvár plans to build a cultural/convention centre by renovating the industrial buildings of the Bőrgyár. Funds will be provided by the Agóra Pólus programme. The area is already used for similar purposes, but of course the new buildings will provide a far more sophisticated environment.

http://www.szekesfehervar.hu/index.php?pg=news_46952






Fehérvári csodák palotája a Bőrgyárban az Agóra Pólus támogatásával
Székesfehérvár az Agóra Pólus Program keretén belül a Bőrgyár felújítására pályázik. Itt olyan komplexumot szeretne a város létrehozni, mint a fővárosi Millenáris Park. A tervek szerint műszaki ismeretterjesztési funkciója lesz majd az épületnek - mondta Schultz György a Polgármesteri Kabinet igazgatója. A program új elemeként már elkészült a bőrgyári fehérvári csodák palotája engedélyezési terve.


Székesfehérvár három fő területen - az Alba Innovációs Park, a klaszterfejlesztés, és az Agóra pólus elképzelésekkel vesz részt a Pólus Programban. A volt orosz laktanyák helyén tervezett innovációs parkban már a jogerős bontási engedélyeket is beszerezték és elkezdődött a közműhálózat tervezése. A veszprémi egyetemnek pedig jogerős építés engedélye van egy közel 800 milliós új épületre.

Az Agóra Pólus közel 1,7 milliárdos keretéből elkészülő új közművelődési intézmény a volt Bőrgyár helyén épülne fel, úgy, hogy az egyik épületét megtartva, két új, környezetbarát, úgynevezett passzívház épülne. Az így létrejövő közösségi tér pedig alkalmas lenne arra, hogy - tehermentesítve a történelmi belvárost – kulturális rendezvények helyszíne legyen. A tervek megvalósítására mintegy 90 százalékos támogatást érhet el Székesfehérvár.

A Bőrgyár épületegyüttese jelenleg kihasználatlan és elhanyagolt része a városnak, bár jelenlegi állapotában is helyet ad kulturális programoknak. Az épület felújítása a programok kiszélesítését, a mai kor követelményeinek megfelelő színvonalú kiszolgáltatását teheti lehetővé.


A Bőrgyárban létrejövő intézmény közművelődési tevékenységet folytat majd olyan formán, hogy közérthető módon mutatja be a térségi innovációs eredményeit. Az Agóra Pólus intézményekben a látogatók interaktív módon ismerhetik meg Székesfehérvár felsőoktatásához és gazdaságához szorosan kötődő tudományterületeket. A tematikus ismeretterjesztés a pályaválasztás során is meghatározó tényezőként működhet: a továbbtanulók orientációját is befolyásolhatja azon tudomány- és iparágak megismerése, melyek hangsúlyosak, illetve a közeljövőben megvalósuló fejlesztések révén hangsúlyossá válnak az adott fejlesztési pólus felsőoktatási és munkaerő-piaci kínálatában. A létrejövő intézmény a műszaki és természettudományos területek iránti érdeklődés növelését segíti elő, mellyel hosszabb távon hozzájárulhat a Bőrgyár az adott szakterületen felsőfokú végzettséget szerzett hallgatók számának növekedéséhez. Ezen ösztönzők hatására a helyi munkaerő-piaci kereslet és kínálat közelíteni fog egymáshoz.

Very long all-over-the-city phototrip

A few days back I took my camera with me on my usual daily bike trip around the city, taking pictures of all the areas I've been.
As I take a big circle in the suburban areas, these pictures are mostly taken outside the historical parts and mostly feature
residential areas - almost all of them because my trip is about 25 kms long and Fehérvár is a quite small town after all. Therefore
this is a very 'representative' picture trip about all the parts of the cities noone will see in tourist guides - expect lots of
commies and suburbia, and enjoy!

A map:



I started up near the so-called Papagájtelep (Parrot Residential Area...) which is a small-commie/suburban area, the first to be
built after the war. Most people like it but I really-really don't.



These are the small commies



And the suburban areas. Most of the houses are really nice, but most of them are not new, just renovated. a Typical thing in the
whole town.







I crossed the Kadocsa út-Szent Flórián körút inner ring (it was the bypass before the 'real one' was completed in 2005.) These
areas are suburban again. These areas are the most widespread in Székesfehérvár, explaining why the city is so small-townish. These
single-storey houses, built in rows with small gardens were the typical way of factories to house workers between the two world
wars, therefore Fehérvár - being the industrial city it is - has lots of them. These areas are still traditionally lower
middle-class. Some districts in Budapest - such as Kispest - has them too.















The bus is coming...



Getting closer to some commies (Királysor), that don't break the colorfulness of this place anymore



A commie with a really strange color. The locals call it 'kettle blue' (fazékkék)...



Entering bike route K1 along the Budai road. Fehérvár is a quite bikeable city, not only because of the routes - there are quite
many of them - because they are mostly just stripes on a broad sidewalk, but because of the usual low traffic, flat terrain and
moderate distances.



Along K1 - big trees above, brick school buildings on the left, a busy road on the right.



A large retail area



Sidewalk bike-route...



Getting closer to the train station, building are becoming older. This area was built in the late fifties-early sixties, and the
locals are mostly still the original inhabitants! The buildings are going to be renovated starting this November - most of them
deserve it. This is an ageing area of the city and most likely the only one considered a 'bad neighborhood' especially near the
railway station and to the immediate south, the so-called Széchenyi.







The famous social-realistic railway station of Székesfehérvár





Moving on on the Prohászka. These two people are good examples as to why designation bike routes on walkways is a bad idea.



A really nice residential area - just a corner away from the Széchenyi!







And here it is: the worst part of Székesfehérvár, the intersection of the Széchenyi and Horváth István roads. Everybody hates this
place, the only good thing about it is that it's not really bigger than what's visible on the picture - a few houses and 5
ten-storey commieblocks. This is the only 'bad' place in Fehérvár: however, all the commies will be renovated in the coming months
(already visible on the second picture), so even if the population doesn't change it will cease to be such an eyesore.





The immediate area is called Tóváros and it is still a commie area. It was the first one however to be 100% renovated. Of course
it's still not a fancy place but with all the houses and most public places renovated it is not exactly my definition of Eastern
Europe.









I couldn't fail to notice these 19th or early 20th century rural houses, now stuck in the middle of the city. I hope they are
protected somehow because I really like them here.



I am still stuck in the gravitational pull of commieblock so instead of turning towards the historic areas I continue my trip to
the Palotaváros, the place I used to live and I made my first SSC post about in the Central European Commieblocks section. The
first thing I see is the bus terminus of the Jancsár utca. If Fehérvár ever gets a tram, it must be a stop because many lines end
here.









Moving on, most commies are renovated (though this area has the lowest renovation percentage of the city). I guess it can't be a
bad place at all to live.







I went all the way to the end of the city. The final buildings are some new residentials, partly used as social apartments of the
city government.





Really the end of the city - here is the beltway and because of the super-ultra optical zoom of my camera it's also possible to
catch some of the countryside





A final glimpse at new and old commies and I move on, this time already heading home





Back to the suburbs. The rural heritage of these streets is obvious.







I am at the Palotai road, with two very-very long commieblocks. The other side is called Szedreskert, indistinguishable from the
Ligetsor, the latter one is closer to the city center. Extremely quiet residential areas with lots of trees and very dark parks.

















A large city park is nearby, with the Csitáry well that has a special water which tastes like iron but they say it's extremely
healthy.



After like half a kilometer and passing the art high school (I didn't take pictures because I already did in my first phototrip) I
arrived at the old windmill which after some renovation now serves as the administrative building of the local Kodolányi János
University College.



Passing a small suburban area...







...I am at the Zichy Park, another major city park and the closest point to the historic city center on my journey. The neighboring

buildings are - among others - the city archives, the Székesfehérvár court of law and the theater.











I continued on the other side of the park.









Finally, I am back to the suburbs of the Felsőváros (Upper city).









The local school











These streets lead back to the Szt. Flórián Körút, the old bypass, which is a busy road with lots of supermarkets and outlets,
practically the city border. Beyond that it's only the Videoton factory grounds and the Öreghegy suburbs where I live. This is as
long as I could keep shooting with all the heat and the 25 kms behind me.



During this trip I have covered almost the whole city. I missed much of the extensive suburbs of Székesfehérvár but practically
almost all commie areas are covered.
As soon as I have the time and energy I would like to make a compilation of new residentials recently built and U/C in the city.

Thx Sieg for you pics!

Soon we will have pics of every cm of Fehérvár

BTW I have the impression that not only Fehérvár, but whole Hungary is getting more colourful... With all the reconstructions and new buildings, I can see more colour on the streets. Good to see that people use not only white or grey, but the wide scale of yellow, orange, red, blue and green too. Of course I don't like bright green or Barbie-pink, but a street like this looks very nice, and fortunately there's more and more of these

Szép rendezett környezet! Fehérvár egy igazi élhető város.

BTW: Miért nem a photography forumba másoltad? Valahogy nekem oda kívánkoznak ezek a képek.

Thanks. Sure thing that there have been many renovations all over the country, but I would like to see some central inspiration to renovate - for example a low property tax the amount of which can be used fully to renovate your building instead of paying it to the state. It wouldn't have to be too high, enough if it covers the necessary renovation costs every 15-20 years.
BTW most Fehérvár suburbs look really nice and colorful, I didn't 'pick' these houses, it's all over like it everywhere. Usually I don't go in these areas, it was nice to see these streets.
