A lot of cars pass on Samson road during the day. Traffic is even heavier during the morning and afternoon rush hours, so the upgrade is necessary. The works will make the inland section of the 471 dual carriageway twice as wide, thus increasing its capacity.
In 2022, the government made several decisions that halted various projects, but in cooperation with the members of parliament, we managed to get the development of Samson road finally started.
“It is one of the busiest roads in the city,” Mayor of Debrecen László Papp said.
The connecting streets are being improved as part of the project, and the Acsádi road has already received an asphalt layer.
As soon as the weather permits, embankments will be built, and the construction of ditches will improve drainage. The work is progressing as planned.
The contractor has drawn up design plans for the Sámson road reconstruction and the other connecting streets. Once the design plans were ready, the relevant operator consultations had to be carried out, and the road and utility construction permits have now been obtained,” said Boglárka Kiss, senior communications officer at the Ministry of Construction and Transport.
The utility replacement is scheduled to start in March. This is expected to lead to traffic restrictions, and road users will be informed of the temporary change in good time.
