The connection of the tram line and the train line materialized with Grooved railroad tracks And a Crossing made by VAMAV Railway Equipment Ltd.

In order to Reduce travel time and Increase the frequency Of traffic, new Two lanes and detours Were built between the two cities, usually with simple turns and double slides in a radius of R = 200 m and R = 300 m, at a speed of 40 km / h on the deviation route. Accelerate train crossings, Several stations were given High percentage turnout In radius R = 800 m and a speed of 80 km / h on the deviation route.

This project also includes the purchase of hybrid vehicles that can run on them safely Both the municipal tram network and the railway network. Voting points provided by VAMAV Vasúti Berendezések Kft. Structurally and geometrically suitable to meet these special requirements. Following initial feasibility studies and planning and authority approval, Construction work began in 2018 And completed in 2021.

They include two low-emission diesel packages with a 390 kilowatt rating. They are also able to handle narrow curves of a radius of 22 meters and provide the advantage of using existing curved streets of city centers.
