Disruption with international impact on the line Budapest-Hegyeshalom

On 10 July, two freight trains collided between Biatorbágy and Herceghalom stations on the line Budapest-Keleti – Hegyeshalom border station. The freight wagons derailed, blocking both tracks and severely damaging them.

From 18:30 on 11 July, one of the tracks became operational again with a speed restriction of 40 km/h on a 100 m long section at the location of the accident, with minor impact on capacity.

The restoration of the second track was finished on 12 July, too.
