M3 metro reconstruction – Works during the summer closure

The reconstruction of metro line M3 is entering its final phase, with trains running on the entire line from spring 2023. Soon, on 15 August, the eight-week-long track closure between the Göncz Árpád városközpont and the Kőbánya-Kispest stations will end. During the closure, work is carried out on a longer-term basis, requiring a permanent shutdown, the most important of which are the reconstruction of the Lehel tér detour area and the renovation of the workstation in the dispatching building on Szabó Ervin tér. The following summary gives an insight into what happened at the end of June.
