In 1958 a viaduct was built by NOBELS PEELMAN construction company on the Leopold II RING lane of Brussels to support increased traffic resulting from the World Expo. It was designed as a temporary construction, but eventually served in Belgian’s capital city until 1984 as a connection between the Basilica of Koekelberg and the Rogier Square. In 1986 a tunnel replaced the bridge. During the construction of the tunnel this temporary steel viaduct was still in use.

After completion of the tunnel in Brussels, the steel supported viaduct was transported from Brussels to Bangkok where it was assembled in 1988 in less than 60 hours.

It covered the Rama IV lane and was renamed
“Thai-Belgian Bridge”.
