The pedestrianized lower quay between the Parliament and the Margaret Bridge have been completed two weeks ahead of the final deadline. From Monday, December 13, a promenade on the József Antall Sr. embankment will be open to pedestrians, according to the Budapest Transport Center.
The quays are being developed in several stages: this time, the section of the lower quay between Parliament and Margaret Bridge has been upgraded, with a pedestrian promenade and a tree line between the roadway and the Danube. The project has eliminated unused areas and greened up the waterfront. The view and the World Heritage site have not been damaged and the new promenade will allow visitors to enjoy the panoramic view of the Danube, a statement said.
It was said that the upgrading should have been carried out in time for the 2017 Budapest World Aquatics Championships, with the aim of providing a walk from the city center to the Danube Arena. However, only two of the planned three-stage works – the Moscow Promenade and the section between Margaret Bridge and Dráva Street – have been completed so far.
The entire stretch of the road from Eötvös Square to Margaret Bridge will remain closed to motor traffic due to the replacement of the drinking water mains on the lower quay. However, those wishing to get around will be able to use the access road to Kossuth Lajos Square (in front of the statue of Attila József), which is also recommended for cyclists, scooters and people with pushchairs.
