# What is the use of the regular convolutional layer in expansion path of U-Net?

I was going through the paper on U-Net. U-net consists of a contracting path followed by an expanding path. Both the paths use a regular convolutional layer. I understand the use of convolutional layers in the contracting path, but I can't figure out the use of convolutional layers in the expansive path. Note that I'm not asking about the transpose convolutions, but the regular convolutions in the expansive path.
