It is previously known as the Northern M0 Danube Bridge, is a cable-stayed bridge that spans the River Danube between Buda and Pest, respectively the west and east sides of Budapest, the capital of Hungary. It is an important section of the M0 ring road around Budapest. The bridge cost 63 billion forints to build, and was officially opened on September 30, 2008 however, the National Transport Authority of Hungary has only issued temporary permits because of disagreement among suburban cities surrounding the bridge. A naming poll to determine the new name of the recently-built bridge caused controversy and received media attention when American comedians Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart won.

The Total length of the bridge is 1862m. It is composed of five parts:

  5. Right quayside inundation area bridge: 218m

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Transport of Hungary organized a public vote online to solicit possible names for the new bridge. The three names with the most votes, as well as suggestions from local governments, cartographers, linguists and other experts, were to be reviewed by a government committee before a final name for the bridge was chosen.
