More than 21,000 m2 of road reconstructed
The renovation of Október huszonharmadika street in the 11th district started in autumn 2021 and has recently been completed. In addition to the complete reconstruction of more than 21,000 square metres of road surface, the bus stops, bus stop platforms and pavements have also been reinforced with asphalt. The kerbs and gateways have been rebuilt along the entire section. In the direction towards Petőfi Bridge, two drinking water main pipeline also needed to be replaced.
In the section in front of the Allee shopping centre, a separate turning lane has been created for those entering the car park and a separate turning lane for those returning. Street lighting was also renewed to improve the lighting of pedestrian crossings. Posts were relocated where necessary, traffic light heads were rebuilt and loop detectors were installed. Traffic cameras were installed in several places.
In parallel with the road reconstruction, the continuation of the cycle lanes on the Nagykörút of Pest in Buda was created in Irinyi József street and Október huszonharmadika street, thanks to the fact that the construction of a 234-metre-long two-way cycle lane from Fehérvári street to the Bogdánfy street intersection.
This development fills a huge gap and is also a major step forward in connecting the Buda and Pest cycling networks. The design of the cycle lanes does not affect the motor vehicle capacity of the road and the number of lanes has not changed.
