The proposal for the Budapest General Assembly lists the buildings to be preserved in nine pages, the nearly 180-item list includes the Hilton Hotel in Budavár, the main building of the Southern Railway Station, and a number of modern buildings in several districts, including downtown after the war.
The railway can once again become an important means of transport in Budapest The government has adopted the Budapest Agglomeration Railway Strategy, which aims to continuously improve public transport in the agglomeration by 2040. Part of this is the construction of, among other things, the northern and southern border bridges and the railway tunnel connecting Kelenföld, South and West railway stations, making the more than 100-year-old plan a reality.
City of the Future – Railway development connects new areas to city centre What will Budapest look like in 20 years? According to current urban development efforts, the air will be much cleaner, the underground, suburban railways and rail services will be connected. Commuters will happily board clean, on-time and frequent trains to get to work from the outer parts of Budapest and towns in the agglomeration. Sixteen new railway stations will be built to support this purpose, while huge areas once used by the railway may be rehabilitated and handed over for residential use. At least this is what the newly completed Budapest Agglomeration Railway Strategy says.
