Budapest Chain Bridge Crossing Ban For Tourist Buses & Trucks In Effect
Since 4 January 2020, vehicles weighing more than five tons are banned from crossing the Széchenyi Chain Bridge until after bridge renovation.

Only BKK’s public transport services are allowed, so are bicycles, cars, vans and minivans.

The structure of the bridge is under constant daily monitoring by the operator.

The operator of the bridge, the Budapest Közút company, continuously checks the condition of the bridge according to the prescribed control schedule.

The recently completed status report established that weight limitations for the bridge must be stricter than the current level.

    By Anne Zwack: There are people who have been living all their lives in Budapest who have never even been to the Csepel Island. The reasons for this are obscure as the centre of Csepel is ten minutes drive from the Palace of Arts. The island was the first stopping place for the invading Magyars and is called Csepel after Arpad’s groom.
