Budapest’s new metro line includes ten stations and will connect South Budapest to the center city. Located on the Danube river and currently under construction, Fővám tér Station is part of the first phase of this project. Only a complex structural system could fulfil the requirements emerging from the proximity of the Danube and the given construction site. For that reason, Fővám tér Station station is composed of a cut-and-cover box and tunnels. The complexity of the structure is driven by the need for a new tunnels for the tramline and pedestrians. This new underground station will become a gateway to the historic downtown of Budapest.
