In 1865 a pontoon bridge by the name of Christian IX´s pontoon bridge was built. Six years later in 1871 a railroad bridge was built, which still stands today. In 1933 the pontoon bridge was removed and a new bridge, called the Limfjords bridge (Limfjordsbroen), was built in its place. Five years later on 29 May 1938 Aalborg Airport opened.
Through 1958-1960 the Limfjords bridge was expanded and in 1969 the Limfjords tunnel (Limfjordstunnelen) east of Nørresundby was opened. As a supplement to these bridges and the railway bridge, there have for several years been spoken about adding a fourth connection over the Limfjord although no direct action have been taken.
Nørresundby is served by Lindholm railway station, located in the district of Lindholm in the western part of the city. Lindholm station is located on the Vendsyssel Line between Aalborg and Frederikshavn. It offers direct InterCity services to Copenhagen, regional train services to Aalborg and Frederikshavn, and is the northern terminus of the Aalborg Commuter Rail service to Skørping.
