According to the Budapest Agglomeration Railway Strategy, in the near future passenger traffic will triple. This will cause significant overload on the railway station without infrastructure extension. Therefore the goal of this design is to handle the growth of the passenger traffic and at the same time to create a better connection between the two sides of the city than the existing undercrossing. The appearance of the design creates a city-gate effect from the viewpoint of railway passengers. These features are created by a concrete bridge structure following the current underpass and the lightweight steel and glass roofing covering it.
