The bus lane will be extended on Soroksári út, in Kőbánya (District 10) on Vajda Péter út as well as on the city section of highway M5 in the direction of the inner city.
Furthermore, traffic pattern and signalling changes will be in place on other roads, therefore BKK advises motorists to drive more carefully.
