Construction Of The Phra Pinklao Bridge Circa 1972

Published on 8th October 2018 by Stickboy BKK

The Phra Pinklao Bridge over the Chao Phraya River links Rattanakosin Island with Thonburi and is named after Pinklao, vice-king of Siam, 1851-66.

The Chalerm Sawan 58 Bridge along Saphan Siaw was dismantled to make way for the new bridge.

Construction of the bridge started on August 4, 1971 and it was opened on 24 September 1973 to traffic by then Prime Minister Thanom Kittikachorn.
