Abstract [en]

The immense urbanization of the twentieth century resulted in population and territory growth through the attachment of several nearby villages to the growing city of Budapest. Thus, the yet strictly organized structure of the city became increasingly uneven in terms of available infrastructure and the districts in the outskirts became hardly accessible through means of transportation.

In this thesis several paths for a new ring-road connecting the districts in the outskirts of the city are analyzed, having as starting point different plans being designed but not yet developed by Centre for Budapest Transport. The potential path of the new ring-road should be close to the east railway bypass, named Körvasút (Ring-rail) lane starting from Váci road in the north to Soroksári road in the South. The best alignment is discussed in more details, offering a clear view for the reader about its effects – if realized – on the present traffic situation in Budapest.

Furthermore, one of the core parts of this paper is the definition of a sustainable, modern goal and criteria system, paying attention to the tasks and aspects of Centre for Budapest Transport (BKK) meanwhile focusing on environmental, social and financial sustainability as well. Thinking about the livability of the city in the future, this is of utmost importance.

Abstract [sv]

Den enorma urbaniseringen under nittonhundratalet resulterade i befolknings- och territoriumstillväxt genom sammanslagning av flera närliggande byar till den växande staden av Budapest. Således blev en ännu strikt organiserad struktur i staden alltmer oorganiserad när det gäller tillgänglig infrastruktur, och distrikten i utkanten av staden var knappt tillgängliga via transportmedel.

I denna uppsats analyseras flera alternativ till en ny ringväg, som skall förbinda stadsdelarna i stadens utkant, med utgångspunkt från olika planer som är utformade, men som ännu inte har utvecklats av Centrum för Budapest Transport. Det potentiella läget för den nya ringleden ska vara nära den östra järnvägsknutpunkten, som heter "Körvasút körfalt" som börjar från Váci utca i norr, till Soroksári väg i söder. Den bästa anpassningen diskuteras mer i detalj, och erbjuder läsaren en tydlig bild om dess effekter - om de förverkligas - på den nuvarande trafiksituationen i Budapest.

Dessutom är en av de centrala delarna av denna uppsats definitionen av ett hållbart, modernt mål och kriterier, som uppmärksammar de uppgifter och aspekter av Centrum för Budapest Transport, samtidigt som fokus även ligger på miljömässighet, samt social och ekonomisk hållbarhet. Att tänka på beboeligheten i staden i framtiden, är av yttersta vikt.
