Thanks, @Jo
Once more - fantastic project. After Milau aqueduct has been completed, this seems to be the most impressive roadwork in world?!

The Mega Bridge crosses twice the Chao Phraya river. The four pylons for the 702 m and 582 m long bridge sections reach heights of 173 m.
http://www.peri.de/ww/en/pub/presse/...05/downl_1.cfm



The Mega Bridge (part of the industrial ring road project), as it has been called, will span a meander loop in the Chao Phraya River; thus it will have two major spans, but also in the middle there will be a complex circular intersection. This means that a motorist may cross the first bridge span and then branch off to the northern roads by using the intersection. The bridge was originally planned as far back as 1997; however it was held up for a major redesign (reducing the number of support pillars to two instead of one), and almost cancelled following the Thai economic crisis in 2001. The bridge is due to be completed in 2006.

The concept designers for the Mega Bridge is Yee Associates Architects and Designers. The project management for the engineering and construction are Norconsult International and the Thai companies MAA, Span and Team Consulting and Management International. There are a team of eight contractors working on the project, including the industrial ring road and the Mega Bridge. These include Italian Thai, Sumitomo, CH. Karnchang, Obayashi, Unique, Kajima, CMS Construction, Taisei Corporation. The bridge and the immediate sections of highway are expected to cost in excess of 8.7 billion Baht.

The bridge will be 51m high to allow clearance for shipping to pass beneath it to the container port at Klong Toey. The structure will be 4.2km long and will have seven lanes to link Pu Chao Saming Prai Road with Rama 3 Road. The intersection in the middle will have a 2.2km ramp to connect it with Sukaswat Road. The bridge itself will be supported by two large 'A' shaped cable supports similar to the style and type used in the construction of the Rama 3 Bridge completed in 2003. The two pillars will be supported by piles 70m deep and the structures will be designed to take three times the maximum load. The foundations took a 30hr continuous pour of concrete. The bridge straddles the Wongwein Yai area and connects the Industrial Ring Road project. The land areas beneath the bridge and intersection will be landscaped and redeveloped as leisure facilities.
