Reconstruction of Kapy and Csévi Streets in Budapest’s District II - Colas Út
Reconstruction of Kapy and Csévi Streets in Budapest's District II
Kapy Street and Csévi Street were reconstructed by Colas Út.

Works had to be performed in both streets while keeping traffic continuous, and the sections have a  nearly 13% longitudinal slope, which complicated the task further. Moreover, the streets in question are marked as primary diplomatic routes, therefore we also had to comply with instructions from the Ministry of Interior concerning the traffic diversion and the construction works.

As a completely new feature, we installed special concave-section curbs (so-called Kassel curbs) in bus stops, which were acquired directly from Germany. Such curbs were first used in Budapest by Colas Út. By means of their special design, they help the bus driver align the vehicle correctly to minimise the gap between the curb and the vehicle entrance, while also protecting the tyres of the vehicle. Since the special curbs enable buses to pull closer to the sidewalk – which was constructed with roughened pavement – getting on or off the vehicles becomes safer.
