Budapest Metro opens first automated line

HUNGARIAN prime minister Mr Viktor Orbán and the mayor of Budapest Mr István Tarlós officially opened Line 4 today, Budapest's first automatic metro line.

Line 4 is 7.4km long and connects two of Budapest's main stations, Kelenföld in Buda and Keleti in Pest. The line interchanges with Line 2 at Keleti and Line 3 at Kálvin Tér.
Alstom has supplied a fleet of 15 five-car Metropolis trains for Line 4. The 80m-long air-conditioned trains can accommodate 810 passengers including 164 seated.

During the first year of operation the trains will be manned by supervisors located in temporary cabs. At the end of this time, Alstom will remove the wall dividing the cab from the passenger area and the trains will be operated without staff on board.

Alstom is also supplying 25 Metropolis trains to replace the existing fleet on Line 2.

Automated metro Line M4 opens in Budapest

HUNGARY: Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Mayor István Tarlós opened Budapest's fourth metro line on March 28, starting a weekend of free travel from 12.00.

The 7·4 km Line M4 runs in entirely in two 5·2 m diameter bored tunnels from Keleti railway station, under the Danube to Kelenföld station. There are eight intermediate stations, including an interchange with Line M3 at Kálvin Tér. Platform screen doors are not provided, but an LED strip flashes when a train is approaching.

Trains on M4 are operated automatically, initially with an onboard supervisor in the cab. It is planned that after the first year of service the cab partition wall will be removed and the trains will run unattended.

The Siemens signalling allows for up to of 30 trains/h, with a capacity of 20 100 passengers/direction/h. Services run at 2 min to 3 min headways in the peaks, 5 min off-peak and down to 10 min in the late evening. End-to-end journey time is around 13 min.

The line is worked using Alstom Metropolis trainsets ordered in in May 2006 at a cost of €247m. The contract covered 15 trains four-car for Line M4, and 22 five-car trainsets to replace the existing stock on Line M2, which will retain drivers. The trainsets were designed in France, with traction equipment produced in Hungary and the bodyshells and final assembly undertaken at Katowice in Poland.

The four-car trainsets for Line M4 are 80 m long with a capacity of 810 passengers, including 164 seated. The air-conditioned cars have wide gangways and four doors per car side for rapid entry and exit. Maximum speed is 70 km/h.

The HF452·5bn cost of building Line M4 was funded 79:21 by the national government and Budapest municipality, with EU sources proving HF180·8bn.

I think there are some mistakes in the news of railjournal... So you better believe in Railway Gazette!

It's Alstom. As far I know, the delivery of these trains caused delays in Line 4 opening. The reason for delays was certification in Hungary, and authorities even wanted to end the deal. Nevertheles...

Congratulations to all citizens of Budapest with opening new Line 4. Does anybody knows when new line section will be broke ground? Plus new updated map on urbanrail.net:

When the cab partition wall will be removed in the four-car trains of line M4 after one year of operation, they will look like this inside:

Basically nobody knows that at the moment. We only know that it will not happen in the near future.

That's only a temporary one. Actually the whole area will goes through a major development as it's became a hotspot for real estate developers.

Visualization of the new bus terminal and a new office complex(Budapest One) nearby:

Budapest has also a new tram line:
48 runs only at the weekend in every 15 minutes between Deák Ferenc tér M and Savoly Park
.






























This line is was cancelled in 1960. At that time 48 runned between Nyugati railwaystation and Albertfalva.

Thanks much! I appreciate the map as well. Tram information is hard to find in English.
