The last slab element has been laid, so we can say that the Sas Street underground car park is structurally complete – Mayor László Papp announced at the site inspection held on 18th October 2023.

“The car park is one of the city’s most important elements of this year’s transport development programme, built with a net investment of HUF 4.5 billion. The underground car park, which is being built in the heart of the city centre, in the bay of the Orbán House, is of great importance for the city centre”, Mayor László Papp said. He recalled that when the Dósa nádor Square was transformed under the Green City Programme, the parking spaces there were eliminated, but now a 207-space underground car park with four levels, but actually seven mezzanine levels, is being built, covering a total area of 7,000 m².

Speaking about the works, he said that the internal works are currently underway inside the garage, which consists of electrical installations and the construction of internal utilities and mechanical parts.

The Mayor pointed out that there will also be parking spaces for charging electric cars inside the garage. A total of 21 parking spaces for double chargers will be created, with ten double chargers in the first round, so that 20 electric cars can park and charge their batteries in the underground garage.

He added that by the end of the year, the car park should be completed according to the contract, after which the occupancy permit procedure will be launched, and the city’s residents will be able to take possession of the complex at the beginning of next year at the end of January. He stressed that the underground car park will be of great service in terms of accessibility to the shops in the area and that when the municipality moves back into the Old Town Hall building – which will also start at the end of the year and will be phased in until the middle of the year – the construction of this large capacity car park will also be of great importance for the flow of customers.

I am pleased that despite all the difficulties in recent years, the pandemic, the energy crisis, price rises, and inflation have not at all dampened the city’s investment appetite and programme. Everything we promised in 2019, we will deliver by the end of this term”, the Mayor highlighted.
