More traffic lanes on the Ramkhamhaeng road will be closed to facilitate the construction of the third underground section of the Orange Line connecting Hua Mark with Khlong Ban Ma.
The Mass Rapid Transit Authority (MRT) said on Wednesday (April 18) that as the contractor, Italian-Thai Development, will begin to construct the underground section of the Orange Line and subway station connecting Hua Mark with Khlong Ban Ma, it is therefore necessary to close traffic lanes on Ramkhamhaeng road to facilitate the construction.
MRT said it will close one inbound traffic lane from Soi Ramkhamhaeng 64-64/3 and one outbound traffic lane from Soi Ramkhamhaeng 105 109 (in front of Amway (Thailand) Co Ltd), starting from 10pm on April 21 onward.
The traffic closure will be around the clock, it said and advised motorists to use other route instead as the road will be left with only two lanes each for both inbound and outbound traffic during the construction period.
But it said that drivers still could enter or exit all sois along the closed section of the road as usual.
It added that during the construction, city officials will put up warning signs and lights for safety driving and no parking will be allowed in the closed section.
The Orange Line will be open to service in 2023.
