M4 Line (Northeast-Southwest) under construction

Line M4 has been originally scheduled to be built by around 2005, but, as there were numerous political debates over it, not to mention a number of civilian protests against the building of the tunnel for the line at certain parts of the city, building has only started in 2005 and the completion date has been re-scheduled to 2009 or 2010. By November 2005, some of the squares and roads that will cover the tunnel and the termini have been partly prepared. The dates below refer to the completion dates according to plan.

Note: the name with the question mark is also the name of an existing underground station of M3, so it will probably be renamed.

There are plans to extend the line towards Újpalota in the east, and towards Budaörs in the west.
