The latest bridge to be built across the Chao Phraya River is called the Nonthaburi 1. The bridge will be opened to motorists on Friday 26 December 2014. This bridge is situated to the north of Bangkok between Rama V Bridge and Phra Nangklao Bridge. It is a semi-cable-stayed bridge. It connects Nonthaburi 1 Road, on the east side of the river, and Wat Bot Don Phrom-Thanam Nonthaburi Road and Ratcha Phruek Road, on the west side of the river.
According to the Bangkok Post, there are nine more bridges in the planning stage which will be built between 2017 and 2021. Two bridges that will begin construction in 2017 are for Kiakkai and Samut Prakan. The rest are the Rama 2, Ratchawong-Tha Din Daeng, Lat Ya-Maha Pruktharam, Chan-Charoen Nakhon, Pathum Thani, Sak Khok and Sanam Bin Nam bridges.
