The bridge at Km 14+075 had been damaged since March 2 when an SUV reportedly smashed into the steps of the bridge, rendering the bridge unsafe for use and leaving pedestrians stranded on both sides of the eight-lane Rama II Road. The bridge is the only way for pedestrians to cross Rama II Road. The next bridge is about three kilometres away.
