The Liberty bridge will be closed to traffic during the above-indicated weekends from 0:00 on Saturday to 24:00 on Sunday, during which the traffic light in Fővám tér will be operating in yellow flashing mode.
Motorists going from Kálvin tér will have the chance to turn back ahead of the bridge or drive via Belgrád rakpart – Havas utca.
At four summer weekends ( 5-6 and 12-13 August), the Liberty bridge will be closed to vehicles and public transport, making it possible for pedestrians to take over the bridge. During these weekends, tramlines 47,48 and 49 will be out of service.
• During the closure, BKK introduces slight modifications on the tram lines on the Buda side to provide access to South Buda: on Fehérvári út, tramline 61 will run on a longer route between Szent János kórház and Városház tér , while the route section of tramline 49 not served in Bartók Béla út will be available by tram 56A on a longer route between Szent János Kórház and Kelenföld M.
• For the traffic passing through the bridge, the alternatives will be metroline M4, bus line 133E, and bus line 7 which will temporarily serve the Gárdonyi tér stop.
• Trolleybus 72 will replace tramlines 47,48 and 49 in Pest between Deák Ferenc tér and Fővám tér (a section of Kiskörút) and will be running on a longer route between Zugló vasútállomás and Fővám tér M. On the “Kiskörút”, the modern trolleybuses will be running in wireless mode.
BKK will provide further information on August replacement services closer to the date.
