Sakoltee was speaking to reporters while inspecting the road in front of Soi Ramkhamhaeng 95 after receiving complaints from motorists.
The intersection has long been already notorious for traffic snarls and the situation has become worse with the construction of the Orange Line elevated railway.
Sakoltee said the BMA has received complaints from local people and motorists that the road between the foot of the flyover in front of Soi Ramkhamhaeng 15 and the intersection has become heavily congested since the railway construction has led to the closing of lanes.
Sakoltee said the BMA was seeking help from traffic police to study alternative routes for the congested part of the road and the city administration would inform the motorists accordingly.
The BMA would extend the Saen Saeb boat route from Wat Sri Bunruang to Min Buri district next year to provide alternative transport for residents in the area, the deputy governor added.
