Hungary – The European construction group Strabag, through its Hungarian subsidiary, announced it has won the contract to rehabilitate the southern section of the M3 metro line. The contract value totals HUF 24.7bn (USD 89M). In addition to the renewal of five stations and passenger areas, the track structure is also being modernised. The work should be completed in 2020.

“After the renovation of the northern section starting in 2017, we are pleased that we can continue to contribute to the renewal of the Hungarian metro network with the southern section,” says Thomas Birtel, CEO of Strabag. The overall project is divided into three sections: North (Újpest-Központ – Lehel tér), Middle (Lehel tér –Nagyvárad tér) and South (Nagyvárad tér – Kobánya-Kispest). The metro line is 17.3km long, with 15.5km of the track in tunnel. The procurement process of the Middle section is still pending.
