Then, the Permanent Secretary visited On Nut Refuse Disposal Centre to monitor the implementation of area development plan.
the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) received a plot of land of about 30 rai (48,000 square meters) under the interchange on New Krung Thep Kritha Road – Chao Khun Thahan Road intersecting Rom Klao Road, Lat Krabang District to be constructed as a public park in a pilot project to increase green area in the form of public park under Green Bangkok 2030 project.
Part of this land will become exercise and sports grounds and playgrounds and more than 2,000 perennials will be planted to efficiently help reduce pollutions and dust. Currently, the progress of the construction project is about 91% and is expected to be completed in September 2020.
Regarding the land development at On Nut Refuse Disposal Centre, Prawet District, the implementation is divided into 2 phases. The first phase is the public park development focusing on the creation of vegetable garden in urban city to be community source of food. The second phase is the Eco Forest plantation development which aims at creating new ecosystem to reduce air pollution and enhance better environment for communities surrounding On Nut Refuse Disposal Centre.

Presently, the BMA is able to create green area of 7.1 m2 per person. Therefore, the BMA must continue to implement the plan, working more and more, in order to accomplish its goal.
