The renovation of the square is expected to be completed by the end of 2022, the mayor's chief of staff, Samu Balogh, said at a news conference yesterday. 

Balogh noted that, in addition to the renovation of the square, the underpass would be re-insulated from above; therefore, one traffic lane per direction will have to be closed on Rákóczi út and Nagykörút. 

On Rákóczi út, the 2×2 lane traffic for cars will be maintained, with bus traffic assisted by traffic lights and by ensuring priority. On the Nagykörút, there will be lane restrictions for the first 10-12 weeks. 

The bike lane on the affected section will disappear during the work, he added.
