On Saturday, 12 November, the load-bearing of the Chain Bridge was tested with 24 20-tonne trucks. Based on the primary data, the crossing passed well.

During the static and dynamic load testing of the Chain Bridge held on 12 November, the experts measured the deformations caused in the structure of the crossing if 20-tonne trucks are parked at specific points. They also measured how the crossing behaves when a large vehicle passes through it at speeds of 5, 20 and 30 kilometres per hour, the Budapest Transport Centre (BKK) informed.
