On 13th September MÁV issued a statement regarding urgent construction works on Biatorbágy - Szárliget section, which is located on main line Budapest - Rajka. The statement can be read below:

Update of 23-10-2023:


On the alternative route, Komárom – Székesfehérvár (5), MÁV is going to arrange diesel locomotives for traction of freight trains continuously between 28 October and 18 November in order to maximize the available capacity on this route.


Please note the following:

Railway undertakings are informed that train paths allocated on the main line Budapest – Rajka (1) should not be cancelled, however, alternative train paths on the Komárom – Székesfehérvár – Budapest-Kelenföld section should be requested by the operating railway undertakings.


In order to minimise the unnecessary waiting times, we kindly request the railway undertakings concerned not to plan long dwell times on the above section and to arrange the shifts of locomotive drivers in a way not to generate track occupancy at the stations Komárom and Székesfehérvár.




Dear Partner!


Following recent diagnostic tests, a speed restriction has been introduced on the Biatorbágy - Szárliget section of railway line 1 due to the conditions of the railway tracks. The Ministry of Construction and Transport, as the owner, has ordered the removal of this speed restriction as soon as possible. 

Please be informed that the following temporary capacity restrictions will be introduced on the section between Biatorbágy - Szárliget in connection with the track maintenance works:


Please note that the exposure to weather conditions of the track maintennance works is significant, so the date of completion may change. 

Alternatively, we recommend the use of the Komárom - Székesfehérvár (5) and Székesfehérvár - Budapest-Kelenföld (30a) lines, which require diesel traction, and the Hegyeshalom - Porpác (16), Porpác - Székesfehérvár (20) and Székesfehérvár - Budapest-Kelenföld (30a) lines, which require electric traction only. 


We will keep you informed during the whole process and provide you the opportunity to consult us.


After the end of the track closure on the Biatorbágy - Szárliget section of railway line 1 by removing the above mentioned and previously introduces speed restrictions as well, we will be at the disposal of our Clients with a renewed railway infrastructure, ensuring a high technical standard in the long term. 


We ask for your understanding and cooperation in dealing with this situation.
