BUDAPEST METRO LINE 3 RENOVATION WRAPS UP

 

The two remaining stations of Budapest’s metro line 3 were opened to the public on Monday, ending a comprehensive renovation that lasted five and a half years. At the inauguration of the Lehel Square and Nagyvárad Square stations, wrapping up the project, Regional Development Minister Tibor Navracsics said the investment was an important one for Budapest, Hungary and the European Union, and an “embodiment” of cooperation between the three. Mayor Gergely Karácsony thanked the government, the EU and all contributors of the project. The reconstruction was a challenge for the city, and hopefully citizens using the renewed, accessible facilities will think it was worth it, he said.
