Móricz Zsigmond square on the 18th of August









And the good news is that the tramline 41 and 47 was reopened on the very same day

Bocskai road on the 18th of August,surface works almost finished.







Fővám square on the 18th of August









Because of both Saint Gellért square and Fővám square is closed from traffic,a logical step was to close down the Szabadság bridge too,and renovate it.



Móricz Zsigmond square on the 1st of September





September,the 3rd. The lower embankment has been reopened for traffic.

Tétényi road,on the 3rd of September.









Rákóczi square, the 9th of August





On the 4th of September,there was a ground collapse at Tétényi road,no-one was hurt.The accident happened at a site where they were constructing a ventilation tube for the arriving TBM(which was ~10metres from the station).





























Cementing the wall of the collapse

Nice vehicle at Fővám square,but the pics was taken when the place was still closed.

Great pics RawLee, thank you for sharing.

In 1998, I stayed in hotel near Kelenfoldi station and remember that have to take bus to Deli PU to catch M2 line to go in city centre. Now it will be possible by M4 only.

TBM started this summer,station construction early this year. Some reconstructions of the areas of the future stations(underpasses,square reconstructions)happened last year. A lot of stuff are happening simultaneously with the construction. For example,there is a bridge between Saint Gellért and Fővám squares,which badly needed reconstruction(some parts were left intact from WWII),and it is closed now. And a subterranean parking lot will be constructed(supposedly)at Saint Gellért square. At Kelenföld Railway station,the bus terminal is put underground,and a parking lot is built(supposedly).

The first section (Between Kelenföld pu. subway station and Keleti pu. subway station) is planned to be opened in late 2010. Extension until Bosnyák square is planned to be opened two years later, in 2012.

Photo update on the u/c Fővám tér subway station

Photos were taken yesterday via mobile phone: The "tunnel" and stop of tram line 2 will be totally rebuilt and extended... I'm really looking forward to see it when finished... Can't hardly wait...
