Governor Chadchart has focused on improving the Ploenchit – Ratchadamri sidewalk to be completed by the end of March to accommodate tourists during the Songkran festival.

Mr. Chadchart Sittipunt, Governor of Bangkok, together with Mr. Wissanu Supsompon, Deputy Governor of Bangkok, led a team from the Department of Drainage and Sewerage (DDS) to survey the area to improve the sidewalks from Ploenchit Road to Lang Suan Road and Ratchadamri Road.

The Governor of Bangkok said the main problem with Ploenchit Road is the high foot traffic and the presence of illegal motorcycles riding on the sidewalk. As a result, the newest sidewalk improvements are quite old and cannot be completed in some areas because they depend on other related agencies.

The main problem with the sidewalk on Lang Suan Road is that there are a lot of stalls because it is a relief point. It has to be renovated because the sidewalk is currently unclean and challenging to walk on. This includes publicizing the waiver’s revocation. Ratchadamri Road’s sidewalk improvements are still ongoing. Certain areas, such as construction debris and trash-filled road drainage channels, can cause risks and need immediate attention. Additionally, the floor covering needs to be finished. Before the work is inspected and completed, a group of wheelchair users will be invited to test all newly improved sidewalk areas.

To accommodate both Thai and foreign tourists during the forthcoming Songkran holiday, Bangkok Governor Chatchat has directed all related contractors to finish sidewalk renovations in the designated districts by the end of March 2023.
