Green Light For New Budapest Keleti Railway Station Passenger Centre
The construction of a sub-platform travel centre at Budapest’s Keleti Railway Station will get under way following a government decree on allocating funding to the project, state railway company MÁV said.

The 1.6 billion forint (EUR 4.4m) investment is to be co-financed by the European Union and state, and the public procurement procedure is expected to be concluded by the end of the year.

The project includes amenities for purchasing tickets, an information desk and disability access.

The 1.542sqm travel centre will be equipped with 9 ticket desks and 2 customer service desks, one for the handicapped.

It will also have a waiting area, a children’s corner and a facility for security guards.

With a view to reducing passenger waiting times, 18 ticket machines will be installed in the centre and on platforms.

The project includes the installation of an escalator and lifts to ensure unhindered access to the platforms and the metro lines, as well as a luggage storage near the passenger centre, MÁV said.
