New overbridge aims to reduce traffic jams at Bangkok’s Premier Intersection
SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 2023
A new overbridge in Bangkok opened to traffic on Saturday above Premier Intersection on Srinakarin Road.
The 850-metre-long bridge, with two lanes on each side, is located below the elevated tracks of the Yellow Line light rail mass transit system, which connects Bangkok’s Lat Phrao area and Samut Prakan province’s Samrong area.
The newly completed bridge, built by the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand during the construction of the Yellow Line, sits beneath an area between its Suan Luang and Si Udom stations.
The bridge was built to ease traffic congestion at the junction, which has two shopping malls nearby.
Its opening ceremony on Saturday was attended by senior officials from the transit authority, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, Metropolitan Police Bureau, and the Transport Ministry.
Construction of the Yellow Line was delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic but is expected to start operating later this year.
