Thanlyin Bridge (Burmese: သန်လျင် တံတား) is a bridge linking the cities of Thanlyin and Yangon in Myanmar. The bridge crosses the 1-km wide Bago river, about 42 km northeast from the river's confluence with Yangon river. The bridge has a single rail track in the middle, surrounded by a motor roadway on each side.
The bridge was built with Chinese financial and technical assistance. The construction of the bridge began in 1985 but was suspended for about eight months from August 1988 to April 1989 due to unstable political conditions following the uprising of 1988. The total cost of the bridge was 1.65 billion kyats, including a 207 million yuan interest free loan from China.
