The reconstruction works of metro line M3 will continue with the closure of the Corvin-negyed and Semmelweis Klinikák stations – the following traffic order will apply

Metroline M3 will skip the Semmelweis Klininkák and Corvin-negyed metro stations from 13 July 2020, as reconstruction works will start also at these stations. Metroline M3 will continue to operate between Nagyvárad tér and Újpest and a replacement line marked with M30 running between Kálvin tér and Népliget will serve the surrounding areas of the two, newly-closed stations. BKK recommends that only the passengers take the replacement bus M30 who wish to travel to the surrounding area of the two newly-closed stations. The replacement order will remain unchanged; during workdays the replacement buses will operate between the Kőbánya-Kispest and Nagyvárad tér metro stations, while at weekends the replacement buses will run between the Kőbánya-Kispest and Lehel tér metro stations.

Simultaneously with the reconstruction works carried out on the Southern section of metroline M3, the reconstructions works have started also in the middle section: since the springtime, reconstruction works of the Arany János utca and Ferenciek tere metro stations have been in process, followed by the Corvin-negyed and Semmelweis Klinikák metro stations from 13 July. Metroline M3 will continue to be in service between Újpest and Nagyvárad tér on workdays, however the mentioned four stations will be skipped.

The surrounding area of the Corvin-negyed and Semmelweis Klinikák metro stations will be accessible by replacement bus M30 running between Kálvin tér and Népliget on workdays, whose routes and stops are available in the BKK FUTÁR app, as follows: futar.bkk.hu/route/BKK_MP536. The boarding point of the Kálvin tér station of replacement bus M30 is at Szabó Ervin tér; of Corvin-negyed and Semmelweis Klinikák stations is at the replacement stop of metroline M3; of Nagyvárad tér station is on Üllői út at the intersection of Orczy út and of Népliget is on Üllői út at the intersection of Könyves Kálmán tér.

Information for motorists and cyclists

The construction works of the infrastructure required for the service of replacement bus M30 have started on certain sections of Üllői út and also on Szentkirályi utca, thus bottlenecks, temporary lane closures and traffic restrictions may be applicable in that area.

Changes to be made from 13 July, Monday:

  • On Üllői út, two lanes will continue to be open to traffic, however replacement bus M30 will run in the outer shared lane dedicated for buses and cyclists, thus BKK would like to ask cyclist to pay particular attention to their rides on Üllői út.
  • On Szentkirályi utca, parking won’t be possible, as a two-way traffic order will be applicable: traffic can continue to go towards Baross utca, however in the opposite direction only replacement bus M30 is allowed to run.
  • In order to ensure the turning radius of buses to Üllői út, in the hub of Üllői út- Szentkirályi utca, a new traffic light order will be in place.
  • In order to ensure the terminus of the replacement bus on Üllői út, parking services will be ceased on certain section ahead of the hub of Szabó Ervin tér.
