The "Beszédes József" Danube Bridge at Dunaföldvár was originally built as a dual purpose road-railway bridge between 1948-51. The bridge was reconstructed in 2000-2001. As the rail traffic was abandoned, the deck could be replaced with a new orthotropic deck, stiffened transversally. The new deck was installed in two phases while maintaining the traffic. In addition, on one side of the bridge a cantilever was mounted for a bicycle lane.
