Railway station to be closed for 2 weeks

Budapest’s Keleti railway station will be closed May 13-26 for maintenance works. During that period, each of the affected railway lines will run according to a modified timetable, MÁV communications director Dániel Loppert told reporters.

The Ft 2.1 billion maintenance project will be funded by MÁV.

The closure will affect 160,000 ticket-purchasing passengers, and a further 1,000 passengers with passes. Six main lines and a number of other secondary lines will also be affected.
