Tunnels between southern and western stations, the first rhythm of subway line 5, the connection of Gödöllő HÉV to subway line 2, the complete replacement of the Hév fleet and the coverage of the western railway – according to

First, Csepel and Ráckeve HÉV, which will be built for highways, are the first rhythm of Subway Line 5. Often mentioned, nothing has happened so far. However, in the current government decision,. A feasibility study is also conducted on the long-term connection between these two HÉV lines and Szentendre HÉV, the second stairway of the well-known fifth subway.

This decision will bring underground passenger trains between Kunszentmiklós-Tass-Kőbánya-Kispest and integrate with Subway 5. It also mentions the decision that a comprehensive innovation on the HÉV section between Békásmegyer and Szentendre is awaiting.

They are also planning a "fast track development" on the Gödöllő and Csömör HÉV lines, and are also encouraged to connect with the waiting Metro Line 2 to establish a new transit connection with the railway line 100a and Rákosfalva and the intersection in Törökőr. Subway Budapest 17 years. Around the Rákoskeresztúr branch line.

To this end, the "complete vehicle exchange" of the HÉV line is contributing. The average age of HVV vehicles today is 42 years.

Green road to south-west tunnels

In another decision, the government agreed to "renovate the railway station system, which is not worthy of Budapest's development level, that is, to eliminate the main railway station." For this purpose, a railway tunnel to be constructed between the South Railway Station and the central station of Nyugati pályaudvar It suggests to do formation.

Budapest has proposed a development concept for the changing role of the Keleti railway station, linking Körvasút to the southern contact railway bridge with a new stop in line with the new railway concept.

Could a new government quarter come?

Moreover, although Fidesz protested the Gyurcsány government's Western District planning district, it seems that it still wants to start in the western region.

The current decision, together with the Western Railway and Keleti railway stations, will include proposals for changes in railway rust areas along major railway stations and introductory rail sections for urban development, including the entire southern railway station, which is gradually liberated as development goals are implemented. Free area along the railway line ".

The first phase of the two programs will be implemented under the current financial system of the European Union's Integrated Transport Operational Program and the maximum grant for public procurement procedures is set at £ 150 million. The program will also be included in the planned transport investment priorities for the period of the European Union Program, 2021-2027.

All this suggests that in the present EU financial cycle, the countryside can be the center of development for Budapest in the future.
