One side of Thai-Belgian Flyover reopened at noon today after it was inspected by Bangkok Metropolitan Administration following Tuesday morning’s fire.

Bangkok Governor Asawin Kwanmuang said the inbound side of the flyover, which has two lanes, is not damaged. The traffic on the flyover has resumed today with one former inbound lane now allocated as an outbound lane.

However, large trucks with six wheels and above are not allowed to use the flyover just yet. Height restriction barriers will be installed at the entrances of the bridge, Daily News reported.

Meanwhile, the steel beams that support the other side of bridge was damaged and it would take one month minimum to fix.
