Wire bridge. It’s a strange name, though that’s how the little bridge, which was handed over 195 years ago, on 9 August1826, in the Városliget, near today’s George Washington statue, was called.

Chain Bridge has been completely closed, and its renovation has begun in earnest.

So now the iconic structure of the capital is being renewed again. But what work will be done on the Chain Bridge over the next two years?

Although not many people are travelling by plane during the pandemic, everyone agrees that better transport is needed between Liszt Ferenc International Airport and the Budapest city centre. A new rail connection to the airport is in the works, and now a design tender for expanding the expressway to the airport to two lanes in each direction has been announced.

There were not enough buses in the Budapest of the 1950s, and those that were in use were too small.
