Abstract: The final component of Thailand’s new Outer Bangkok Ring Road, the eight-lane cable-stayed Chao Phraya River Bridge, will not only alleviate Bangkok’s notoriously heavy traffic but also contribute a new architectural symbol to the capital city. (This paper was presented at the 21st Annual International Bridge, Conference, which took place in Pittsburgh June 14-16, 2004.)
