The construction work of the Tisza Bridge in Tiszaug, situated in the Sothern Great Plain region, is going right according to plans.
Hungary has many unique features that cannot be found anywhere else. For instance, the country has a history of over 1000 years, Central Europe’s largest lake, and now, it
will soon be the proud owner of a bridge with an exceptional framework and mechanism that is like no other in Europe.
In fact, in the whole world, too, there are only a few similar designs.
The uniquely structured bridge has been under construction since January 2019. The contractor hopes to completely finalise the works by the last day of August. Duna Aszfalt KFt. asked magyarépítők.hu to shoot a brand-new video as they are getting closer to the handover and inauguration of the edifice.
The one in a million structure “forms a deformed ellipse, so the appearance of the 556-metre-long bridge is reminiscent of one of the symbols of the Hungarian Great Plain, the “covered wagon,”
writes Peri on Facebook. “The final height of the bridge pylons is over 50 metres. The contractor used a total of about 70 tonnes of formwork material for concreting the arched pylons.”
The 10-kilometre-long distance of the M44 motorway is the investment of NIF (Nemzeti Infrastruktúra Fejlesztő Zrt.), carried out by Duna Aszfalt Zrt. for a price of 51.3 billion forints (146 million euros). The bridge built based on the plans of Uvaterv Zrt. is part of this project, writes Hello Magyar.
Once the bridge is finalised, the area under it will be next. The contractor will rearrange it, and the protection of both shores of the river in a 100-metre-long section will also be assured. It will require important fieldwork and the placement of riprap from the building contractor.

Instead of waffling on about things unique to Hungary (a history of over 1000 years NOT being one of them, by the way), how about telling us what so unique about this bridge? Also, posting a video that when clicked upon displays ‘This video is unavailable’ is hardly enlightening.
