Flyover to Shut Down

BANGKOK — One of Bangkok’s busiest traffic flyovers will be shut down later this month for demolition to make way for a new elevated rail line.The Ratchayothin intersection overpass will be closed at 10am on Nov 22 for demolition to begin four days later, according to the Mass Rapid Transport Authority, or MRTA.The operation is expected to severely impact traffic in the vicinity; the bridge allows the ringroad of Ratchadapisek Road to pass over the ever-clogged Phahonyothin Road and connects downtown Bangkok with the suburbs.The work is expected to take three years.In place of the overpass, the MRTA will build a tunnel under Phahonyothin Road. A new bridge for autos will also be built parallel to the new Green Line extension along Phahonyothin Road.The Green Line will run from Mo Chit north to Pathum Thani province.The MRTA has advised motorists to cross Ratchayothin intersection through side alleys such as sois Phahonyothin 30 and Ratchadapisek 48.
