The complete and all-round refurbishment and reconstruction of – among others – the public transportation systems at Lánchíd Tunnel is an organic part of the group of projects currently in development which constitute one of the largest complex transportation revamps of the Budapest tram system that leads to an integrated interconnecting system of tram transportation in the Buda area.TEN-T takes an active part in these projects from the very beginning and as part of the works has completed the restructuring and reconstruction of the overhead lines system at Lánchíd Tunnel.


As part of our onsite work we built 600 meters of contact wires and erected 9 masts. We installed 3 power cable boxes and built 80 meters of cables serving current flow recirculation. We also installed 5500 meters of SZAKAM 1000 aluminum cables, 1500 meters of signaling wires and close to 400 meters of surface conduits. We installed a rail traffic signaling system within the tunnel that serves tram catch-up exclusion.
