Millenium metro could be replaced

Museums

Carriages of Budapest’s metro line 1, also known as Millennium Underground Railway or M1 – the oldest line in the Budapest Metro system – could be replaced between 2014-2020, Hungarian portal design.hu reported today.

A plan is in place to replace the carriages based on the designs of Péter Kukorelli, a graduate of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest. Kukorelli is currently employed in Barcelona and has already worked with the Centre for Budapest Transport BKK and its operator BKV, the portal says, adding that the new carriages could be driverless.

Designs by Kukorelli can be found here.
