She said the BMA will also run a campaign to raise awareness on safe driving to lower the rate of accidents.
Regarding the development of infrastructure for an ageing society, road-crossing signals will be established along with flyovers with lifts for the elderly and the disabled particularly in crowded areas.
Flyovers with ramps linking King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital and Lumpini Park are also in the works to serve as an example for other flyovers in Bangkok that provide easier ways to cross roads, the secretary said.
BMA will further improve pedestrian walkways by making more ramps with the steep ratio not exceeding 1:12 at crossroads, alleys, and street isles.
The BMA will support the ageing society by launching a hotline 1555 for the elderly who face obstacles when crossing roads.
