Mott MacDonald to lead the design of €90 million modernisation of Hungary’s railways

Mott MacDonald is leading a consortium that has been appointed by the Hungarian State Railways to act as design engineers for the €90 million modernisation and improvement of the country’s existing railway infrastructure on the Trans-European Networks (TENs) Corridor IV.

The project will involve the design development of all elements of railway infrastructure, including earthworks and drainage, track, bridges and underpasses, stations, signalling, telecommunication and catenary systems for the 18 km route section between Budapest- Ferencváros and Vecsés. Also involved is the development of a European Train Control System (ETCS) over the 225 km route section between Budapest, Szolnok and Lõkõsháza.

The improvements are taking place in order to promote key transport links as well as to increase capacity and line speeds and to improve the safety and reliability of the infrastructure.

The Mott MacDonald led consortium includes Fõmterv, DE-Consult, ISV and ILF. Mott MacDonald’s role as consortium leader involves client liaison, project management and the design development of traction power and overhead electrification.

The project will be completed by the end of next year.
