Further news is that phase II (Keleti->Dózsa->Hungária->Róna->Bosnyák) has got "rail approval" from the authorities. There are still some approvals left to be acquired, but its highly probable it will be built after phase I is finished,mainly because the documentation of the project(for the EU funding) that will be sent to Bruxelles will include the costs of that segment too.
There are no news from phase III yet,that would be 2 stations long from Kelenföld westwards.

Some real shots of the trains,probably ours(judging from the headlights) at the french testing facility. Actually,these will run on the M2 line,but the same type will be used on the M4 line too.

Update!

As of the 17th of August, both TBMs have stopped between Móricz and Gellért,as the constructor didnt have approval for a connecting tunnel,and they will have to stay that way for about a month or so.
(Kelenföld -> Tétényi -> Bocskai -> Móricz -> Gellért -> Fővám -> Kálvin -> Rákóczi -> Népszínház -> Keleti).

Rákóczi square station

There are/will be some changes in network,mostly to buslines,but it will also affect trams and the metro too. Here's a map of the changing lines:


In order to make the system more "simple",tramlines 30 and 30A will be renamed 21 and 21A to avoid confusion with other lines with the same number
Line 62 will go farther into the city in rush-hour,and will keep its current route else with 62A number.Combine route of line 62
with that of 28.

The cogwheel railway will get the number 60.

The metros will start earlier and finish later.

Night buses will have better frequencies.

A lot of buslines will get articulated buses,but some tramlines will get only 2 cars instead of 3. The combinos will be used on line 1 on weekends.

And these changes will supposedly spare money!

Additionally,not related to these changes,tracks of line 61 are being connected to the rest at Mórisz Zsigmond square,allowing an other north-south long route to be created at Buda.


Red are the tracks


Some pics about the works by Fricy




And finally,mainly because of metro 4,tramlines 47-49 are out of work. This was an excellent opportunity to reconstruct their tracks:

Update!

As of 28th of September,nothing has changed regarding the location of the TBMs. Bamco still havent got the necessary approvals for the connecting tunnels,hence the TBMs cant go on.
Last week,Bamco got fed up with not getting the money it desired(they want about 35 billion HUF(140 million EUR/210 million USD) extra for "unforeseen" work's cost),and said it will stop working on the tunnels and Gellért station...which will happen on monday. DBR(Dél-Buda - Rákospalota;the 2 end points of the line and the name of the company that actually owns the project) and BKV(Budapesti Közlekedési Vállalat;the public transport company)approves about 1,5 billion HUF extra,that they think is justified,and their fault.
Meanwhile, there are 2 other works going on in the vicinity of the stations and are connected to the metro project,namely the connection of tramline 61 to the rest of the tracks at Móricz square,and the reconstruction of entire Kiskörút(little ringroad). Both are advancing well,and can be found here:

(Kelenföld -> Tétényi -> Bocskai -> Móricz -> Gellért -> Fővám -> Kálvin -> Rákóczi -> Népszínház -> Keleti).

This is great, I'm a big fan of Budapest's subway system. These pictures remind me of when they were renovating the yellow line (line 1) in 1996, when I lived there.
