Demolition of the underpass on the Buda side has also begun so that a larger and safer underpass can be built in its place: A four-meter-wide tunnel with vertical walls will be built in place of the former three-meter-wide bicycle tunnel, so that a sidewalk will also be constructed in addition to the two-directional bicycle path.
