Due to the construction works of the interconnected tram network in Buda, the refurbishment of the track section of tram lines 4 and 6 between Aradi utca and Tátra utca on the Grand Boulevard and the warranted repair work of the Margaret bridge, trams 4 and 6 are running on shortened routes during the daytime and are replaced by buses at night on the full length from 21 March 2015 for circa two months.

On 21 March 2015, complex, coordinated refurbishment and maintenance works start on the routes of tram lines 4 and 6 and along the routes of lines between Széll Kálmán tér and Aradi utca. At Margit híd, budai hídfő, in the surroundings of Keleti Károly utca and Széna tér and at Széll Kálmán tér, there are on-going closures and traffic restrictions due to the track construction of the interconnected tram network in Buda. In coordination with the construction of the interconnected tram network in Buda, BKV implements urgent track refurbishment on the routes of trams 4 and 6 between Aradi utca and Tátra utca. Due to replacement of tracks constructed in the ‘90s, the speed limit introduced on this section due to the deteriorated conditions of tracks will be lifted. In parallel to these actions, dilatation will be replaced by the executor of the bridge refurbishment (2009–2011) with guarantee.

Refurbishment of Széll Kálmán tér is continued: due to utilities and road construction, on the section of Várfok utca between Vérmező út and Csaba utca, only the lane to Csaba utca will be open to one-way traffic for several months due to construction. Until the middle of April, no further significant changes can be expected in road traffic in the surroundings of Széll Kálmán tér.
