Bhumibol Bridge 1 and 2

Bhumibol Bridge

Bhumibol Bridge 1 & 2 (สะพานภูมิพล) is part of the 13 km long Industrial Ring Road connecting southern Bangkok with Samut Prakan Province. The bridge crosses the Chao Phraya River twice, with two cable-stayed spans of lengths of 702 m and 582 m supported by two diamond-shaped pylons 173 m and 164 m high. Where the two spans meet, another road rises to join them at a free-flowing interchange suspended 50 metres above the ground. The bridge first opened for traffic on 20 September 2006.
