Due to the renovation of the main Budapest-Győr railway line, the works on the M1 highway have been reorganized – Magyar Koncessziós Infrastruktura Fejlsztő (MKIF) Zrt. told MTI on Saturday.
They wrote that there will be no planned renovation works during the day on the M1 section between Biatorbágy and Tatabánya between October 27 and November 17.
The renovations affecting the highway were reorganized, thereby helping the transport of buses replacing trains.
The complete track closure will be necessary because the substructure, i.e. railway embankments and cuttings, will be restored over a length of more than one and a half kilometers, which can only be done with significant earthworks.
Under both tracks, at a depth of two to three meters at the same time, the contractor dismantles the earthworks. This is followed by stabilization work and track reconstruction. This is the only way to create the track condition of the required quality to raise the speed back to 140 km/h, writes the MÁV.
The reconstruction of the other track will take place between November 18 and December 9, at which time traffic can move on one track again.
It was revealed on Thursday that for the construction on main line 1, tools and workers had to be brought over from the construction of the Budapest-Belgrade railway line.
