Stretch of metro line M3 to reopen after renovation
A central stretch of Budapest's metro line M3 will reopen from May 14, following a renovation, the Budapest Public Transport Center (BKK) said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Service will resume at the Kálvin tér, Corvin-negyed and Semmelweis Klinikák stations, Tibor Radnai, the project director for the renovation, said. Trains will run between Kálvin tér and the line's southern Kőbánya-Kispest terminus; however, they will not stop at Nagyvárad tér, which will be closed for renovation.
The Dózsa Gyorgy út and Lehel tér stations will also close for renovation.
Replacement bus service will run between Kálvin tér and Göncz Árpád városközpont from May 14. After around 9:00 in the evening on weekdays and all day at the weekends, replacement bus service will operate along the stretch of the line between Göncz Árpád városközpont and the Kőbanya-Kispest terminus.
The renovation of the metro line M3 started late in 2017.
Radnai said the complete renovation could wind up by March 2023.
