The "Türr István" Danube Bridge at Baja was originally built as a dual purpose road - railway bridge. Due to the increased traffic of passenger cars cantilevers were built on both sides of the bridge in 1989. During the next reconstruction in 1998-99 the road and railway traffic was fully separated. The cantilevers were strenghtened to carry heavy loads by adding prestressed suspensions and stringers. Finally, the railway deck was rebuilt as well.
