Khao San Road expected to reopen this August

On 18th June 2020, Mr. Sakoltee Phattiyakul, Deputy Governor of Bangkok, revealed after having an on-site visit to inspect the progress of Khao San Road Improvement Project that, at present, the project is 100% complete physically.  However, there is a problem that many people have sneaked in and parked their cars or motorcycles in the renovated area which caused damages to road surface and bollards.  In this regard, the BMA’s Traffic and Transportation Department were assigned to additionally install the bollards to stop people from parking their cars in the area and work together with Chana Songkhram Metropolitan Police Station to install traffic signs such as no parking and speed limit. Moreover, the Deputy Governor of Bangkok assigned Phra Nakhon District Office to coordinate with the BMA’s Drainage and Sewerage Department to clean the sewers in the area and its surroundings in order to prevent and solve the problem of undrained flood in the area.

Regarding the vendors and merchants, as the government does not allow international flights to enter the country and most of the customers of Khao San Road are foreigners; there is still no one selling goods and products at this moment.  Nevertheless, it is expected that Khao San Road will be reopened for trade and business in August 2020.
