BKK signs contracts for redesigning embankment area
The head of the Budapest Public Transportation Center (BKK) Katalin Walter on Thursday met with the representatives of companies that will soon prepare the plans for redesigning the embankment areas on both the Buda and Pest sides of the capital, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Béla Várady Tamás the executive manager of Közlekedesi Tervező Iroda, Lajos Koszorú the executive manager of Város-Teampannon and Gábor Márkus the executive manager of MG Épitész signed contracts with BKK.
The plans are for the lower embankment area to remain as a transportation corridor but also to create a network of public spaces on the banks of the Danube that is attractive to both residents and tourists.
On the Pest side facilities for community sports will be built, street furniture installed and cycling and walking routes established. The aim of the project is to renew the pavements in the area, to improve the conditions for cycling and pedestrian traffic, and to create more green zones.
The full project implementation plans, tender documentation, and the necessary permits should be available in the summer of 2022, BKK said.
