Traffic changes during the closure of Szabadság-híd (Liberty bridge) at two weekends in June

The Liberty bridge will be closed to traffic on 17-18 and 24-25 June as well as on 5-6 and 12-13 August 2017, enabling pedestrians to take over the bridge. During the closure, instead of tramlines 47,48 and 49, passengers will have the services of the tram lines running on longer routes in Buda, of the modern trolleybus line 72 running to Fővám tér in Pest and of metro line M4 and of bus lines 7 and 133E between Pest and Buda at their disposal. The Liberty bridge will be closed to traffic during the above-indicated four weekends from 0:00 on Saturday to 24:00 on Sunday, during which the traffic light in Fővám tér will be operating in yellow flashing mode. Motorists going from Kálvin tér will have the chance to turn back ahead of the bridge or drive via Belgrád rakpart – Havas utca.

At four summer weekends (17-18 and 24-25 June and 5-6 and 12-13 August), the Liberty bridge will be closed to vehicles and public transport, making it possible for pedestrians to take over the bridge. During these weekends, tramlines 47,48 and 49 will be out of service.

BKK will provide further information on August replacement services later on.
