Travellers heading down Mittraphap Road towards Nakhon Ratchasima province for the New Year have been bogged down by heavy traffic, with the queue of vehicles stretching for almost 40 kilometres on Saturday (December 28).

The traffic situation on this vital road for travellers from Bangkok to the Northeast has been aggravated by motorway construction.

Vehicles are moving at a snail’s pace on the crowded four-lane road, periodically disrupted by Nakhon Ratchasima Highway 2 staff and highway police officers who have opened a special inbound traffic lane to Bangkok, from Nong Sarai subdistrict in Pak Chong district to Lat Buakhao subdistrict in Sikhio district, a total distance of 24 kilometres, to accelerate the flow of vehicles.

Traffic on Mittraphap Road is very high along the route from Saraburi to Nakhon Ratchasima, and the situation is expected to continue throughout the day. The long traffic jams are expected until Sunday morning. However, the traffic is light on the 304 route in the Pak Thong Chai-Kabin Buri section.
