The Centre for Budapest Transport signed a contract with the consortium founded by Colas Alterra and A-HÍD for the complex reconstruction works of Budapest’s tram line no. 1 between Bécsi Road and Kerepesi Road. In addition to the tram tracks, the project entails the comprehensive upgrade of the power-supply network (catenaries, underground cables, transformer stations, etc.). Safe and obstacle-free access to the reconstructed platforms is to be ensured with new pedestrian crossings, while six of the stations are to be equipped with elevators, and three of them with escalators.
