The Krungthep Bridge (Thai: สะพานกรุงเทพ) is a bascule bridge (drawbridge) spanning the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok, Thailand. It was the second bridge to be built across the Chao Phraya river. It was constructed by Fuji Car Manufacturing Co., Ltd, with a budget of 31,912,500 baht.
Heavy congestion on the bridge led to the construction of the nearby Rama III Bridge.
