Thai-Belgian Bridge will be closed to traffic for major repairs and maintenance, beginning Monday.
 

The major repairs and maintenance will take a total of 58 days, starting from March 20 to May 15.

 

According to Mr Charoon Meetanatavorn, deputy permanent secretary of Bangkok Metropolitan Admistration, the major repairs and maintenance would make the bridge stronger and safer following a fire on February 28 beneath the bridge that has caused steel structure of the bridge to deform from overheating for several hours.

 

But to ease expected traffic congestion in the area tomorrow, particularly at Rama 4-Sathorn intersection, outbound lanes of the bridge to Klong Toey will be closed to traffic first for 30 days from March 20 to April 18.


After finishing repairs and maintenance on the outbound lanes, the inbound lanes of the bridge to Samyarn will then be closed for 28 days from April 18 to May 15 for repairs and maintenance.

They didn't reopen it fully, they kept one lane closed over the damaged section. The reason to keep it open for traffic was to reduce the possibility of jams, makes perfect sense to honest.
