Some news:

-BAMCO resumed works on Gellért station earlier this week,while the case is taken to court,but the TBMs are still standing still,awaiting for the approval for the connecting tunnel.
-Fővám station is very-very behind schedule,it will be able to let the TBMs through in march,if everything goes as planned. It means the TBMs will be below the Danube for some months. And because of technical difficulties,the station will be moved 20 metres towards Kálvin square station,so that less of it will be under the river.
-Phase II got the rail approval earlier this week. It got the environmental approval in march...

Are those not enough capacity-wise? For less than 10 million people annually,I dont think we have the spare money right now to build a metro...

You really want to use a tram with luggage? And travel 1,5 hours with it into the centre?
We have no money for tramlines either. There are many parts of the city which would badly need a tramline...
The station was built on a more than 100 years old line that was there before. Only the station is new.Why it is bad?

Update!

As of 5th of November,the TBMs are still standing still. Nothing really mentionable happened. Fővám square station's underpass is now getting its roof.

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

(pics are Qtya's or mine, and from metro4.hu,hosted by tersyxus;which are the small ones)

What do you mean? With this line I showed? I have no idea. But next year,there will be major works going on,as line 1's and 3's tracks will be reconstructed and extended(and some new trams will be bought too,including a few combinos),which means about 30km(60 km if we count double tracks as double).

I've just learned that this is only half of the project. The tracks will be reconstructed on 1,7km(3,4 km double tracked),so that it will be closed until march.

Here you go:

Green are where there are currently works going on
Red are where there will be next year
Blue are where there possibly be works on new lines in the upcoming years(+2-3)
Yellow is where there possibly works will be a bit farther in time(+3-4)

These are just the ones that I know about. There can be other "minor" works elsewhere. In fact,I know of a about 150m long section that will be reconstructed...but that isnt on the map.

This will be the ramp of the tramline on the upper embankment,which wont be opened for now.

Great job RawLee!

If I'm correct, tram line 2 will be reconnected by next Octorber!
