The renovation of the section of Podmaniczky Street in the 6th District between Teréz Boulevard and Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Road has been completed - the Budapest Transport Centre (BKK) informed MTI on Friday.

According to the announcement, as a result of BKK's own investment that began in March, the roadway and pavement were renewed, making the street quieter, more comfortable and safer. A bicycle lane was created in both directions, as well as parallel car parking instead of the previous slanted one.

A new traffic light junction with three pedestrian crossings was established at Jókai Street, and the public lighting was renovated. Eleven new trees were planted in special pits that ensure the longevity of the plants. At the mouth of Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Road, a small square and a wider sidewalk were created, and trees and street furniture were installed - they listed.

Similar to other investments by the BKK and the Budapest City Council, accessibility also played a prominent role in this case, which is also helped by the tactile (raised from the plain, not only visible) warning and information cover, as well as the renewal of public lighting, they added. As a result of the renovation, pedestrian and bicycle traffic conditions have improved, and Podmaniczky Street between Outer Ring Road and Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Road has become more liveable and safer, they concluded.
