The North Railway Bridge of Budapest is, just as the name suggests, dedicated to enabling the railway traffic of the city. It was built in 1896 and first opened to public transport in 1913. Its reconstruction after World War Two used the remains recovered after the bombing, but the bridge was never restored to its previous functionality.

However, it was only after 2008 that the last reconstruction works turned the North Railway Bridge into a genuinely reliable railway infrastructural section, despite the fact the train speed is limited to only 80 kilometers per hour (though, in theory, trains could speed up to 160 kilometers per hour). The North Railway Bridge features no carriageway, which means it is not opened to road traffic.
