The new look for the HÉV station in Szentendre, a popular tourist destination just outside Budapest, has just been presented, showing that it will share a roof with the bus terminal alongside. A commercial hub will also be built – a large SPAR supermarket burned down here a few months ago.
Dávid Vitézy, director of the Budapest Development Centre, has just announced on his Facebook page: “The H5 line is the busiest of the HÉV network serving the suburbs of Budapest, used by 116,000 people a day, but the Szentendre terminal also has commercial functions. We’re aiming to creating a new town centre, with well-developed transport connections and a bus station with as many green spaces as possible, fully integrated and eco-friendly energy”.
The HÉV rail and Volánbusz bus terminal will have a common, large-arched roof. The taxi rank and the K+R (Kiss + Ride) car park will also be covered. A high-capacity, 250-space P+R garage will be built for those transferring from the car to the HÉV, which, together with a smaller car park, will provide space for nearly 400 vehicles.
