Prosecution looming after overweight truck causes bridge collapse in Bangkok

Naew Na reported that a section of the bridge on the Bang Khun Thian - Chai Thalay road had collapsed into Klong Krapho. 

 

This was causing severe traffic problems in the Bang Khun Thian area.

 

Deputy Bangkok governor Sakchai Bunma said that civil engineers reported to him that a truck/trailer carrying four rolls of metal had caused the collapse. 

 

A tire had blown out causing the lowering of the body of the truck and structural failure of the bridge.

A temporary "Berry" bridge is being installed today and a permanent solution should be finished within 2 weeks. 

 

Engineers have reported the culprit to the local police and are demanding compensation for the repairs.

Has anyone noticed that none of the place names on any of these types of stories can be entered into Google to find the actual location?

It is as if the reporter or news source wants the location to remain a secret.

Insecurity getting to people in a non English speaking environment perhaps? Just Google the Thai news and it shows exactly which bridge it is.

I believe it may have been meant to sound like "Bailey bridge".
