Underground parking to ease traffic in Rattanakosin


In a bid to ease traffic around Rattanakosin Island, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration will build a carpark under Sanam Luang, the city governor's adviser Wanlop Suwandee revealed yesterday.

Also, as a short-term plan, tourist buses will only be allowed to |drop visitors off in front of the Fine Arts Department offices before parking at the Pinklao Bus Terminal, he said. 
A mid-term plan would see the construction of a pier near the Pinklao Terminal and the launch of a shuttle bus service for tourists visiting the area. 
The long-term plan is to build a carpark under Sanam Luang, while the Thai Transport Operators Association will also look for places for carparks on the Thon Buri side of the river.
