Bridge Documentation

Cầu Long Kiểng is a riveted pony truss over Long Kiểng Canal in Ho Chi Minh City. Cited in local newspapers as "nearly a hundred years old" this bridge, with a presumed ca. 1920 construction date is a representative example of a design of light weight pony truss bridge that was built in Vietnam by the French government in unknown numbers. This particular example was the victim of an overweight truck, which collapsed one of the spans in January 2018. That span has been replaced with a Bailey truss span. The narrow bridge today is in use by motorbike traffic only, of which it carries a tremendous volume.

Bridge lengths given are very rough estimates.
